    Baby sling for use by C4 Quad

      I used a "snuggli". It was adjustable enough to allow most of the baby's weight to rest on my lap. I looked for a carrier that didn't have a waist belt, just shoulder straps for ease of getting it on & off. There are pics posted in the above sticky thread - creative parenting, tips & tricks.
