When Miles was little I used this around the house every day. It was really good for giving me back the use of my hands. There are more structured slings which give better support (with this one you need to put one hand on him every so often) but this one was really easy to put on, even when already holding a baby. I stopped using it at 9 months or so once he started sleeping a bit better and didn’t need carrying everywhere. We’ve started again at 14 months because you can also use it for a hip carry with an older baby.
