Are you looking for a wrap or ring sling that will comfortably support the weight of your growing child? Take a look at the Yaro Contra weave range - these are thicker (denser) woven wraps which are cushy and soft on your shoulders. They do take a little bit of effort to break in (soften up) and can be a bit harder to manoeuvre at first, but your efforts will pay off quickly.
