    Tubeslings in HK?

    Does anyone know if you can get tubeslings in Hong Kong? Something like this:
    http://www.hotslings.com/ or this
    http://www.pillowslipbabyslings.ca/

    I'm looking to save some $$ by not paying for postage.

    My bub is just too big for the Bjorn now, I'm worried it will break. The Bjorn is also very uncomfortable with her in it.

    Also, has anyone used one with an older baby (8-12 months)? I am travelling soon and with a 3 year old as well, I need my hands free ! Is it comfy for your back? I hate ring slings with a passion - just can't get them to work for me.

    Any other suggestions for sling internet sites would also be very welcome.

    Thanks for your help.

    nappypooh.com - In Hong Kong and sell Karma Baby pouches

    thebabywearer.com - Tonnes of info. Check ot the vendor section. It lists hundreds of carriers, provides links to their websites and their vendors sites. You can also read reviews on carriers and they have a which carrier forum with lots of info in it.

    I bought a sling from attatched to baby, which is in the states, but the shipping was only about 70 HK.

    I've heard poches really are better for smaller babies, but you can use them till toddlerhood. My fav. type of carrier for traveling is a Mei Tai. Yo can put the baby on your front or back, it's comfortable, you can sit with baby in it and when my guy is tired he always fhalls asleep in it. On the flip side, I find it too warm for HK (but great for airport and plane), it's got a steaper learning curve that a pouch, and it's not as easy to pop a baby in and out of as other carriers.

    Erin - thanks very much for the referral to the babywearer website. They have hundreds of sites that sell slings. I have found the perfect sling and have also learnt that it is a pouch sling, not a tubesling that I was looking for !

    Thanks again

    I'm glad it helped. I used that site LOTS before buying baby carriers.
