With boy number 2 on the way and practically having everything we need for him, I've had a little time to make a few things for him. With my first I had one of those front facing carriers and didn't really like it. So I wanted to try these baby slings. I wish I would have taken a picture of the inside it has lions and hot air ballons. I did a few things different, to make it a little stronger but here is a good tutorial. If it can hold my 25 pound toddler it should be strong enough for a baby.
