After discussing with the health visitor about not being able to put baby c down,d of nagging like most people did saying i had nursed him too much, she actually reccommended a sling. After i said I couldnt afford one and ideally needed to try them first and was unable to get to the sling library (its an hours bus ride away) she told me that they hire them out at £5 for 3 months.

She came round today with it and its a kari-me.

The difference between this and the silly chico buckle carrier I had 2 years ago is amazing. The weight feels so different and I felt it was much more secure.

Baby c fell asleep in it within 2-3 mins.

I'm a convert!

I was incredibly fortunate to get my Kari-me (my first sling) as part of a huge bundle of hundreds of pounds worth of baby stuff free from someone on our road, via Freegle. Love it lots - glad you are getting on with it too!
