There are a few sizes of the sling and I was given L because, well, these hips don't lie (plus I'm slightly taller). It takes some practice to learn how to get your baby in and position him right, especially if you are doing it for the first time.
|It is easier to put the baby in from the front and then shift him to rest on your hips|

Right = Wrong position (baby looks like he's going to fall out!)
Took me a day to figure out how to carry my baby correctly but after many tries, it was really easy to use. I love how the sling is handy for going out for a short breakfast or shopping trip as it is easy to put him in and take him out as compared to full carriers like the SidePlus All Mesh. It is also lighter, more compact and fits nicely into your diaper bag or stroller bag.

The sling clings to the edge of your shoulders where the bones are rather than near the neck so as to give you more support and prevent neck and shoulder aches.

It is also made of a really strong material that is both cooling and lightweight. The sling is so compact that I can simply wear it (when my baby is being carried by the hubby) while walking around and it looks perfectly ok =)

You'll of course still need the full carrier if you're going to be carrying your baby for longer periods of time, especially if your baby needs to sleep along the way. Your baby might not be too comfortable sleeping in a sling.
Baby Boy doesn't seem to mind though as he's sleeping a lot less in the carrier now that he's older! He loves to look at everything as we walk so being carried at the side is great for him. He doesn't care which carrier he's in, he just loves to be close to me. I love the bond I share with him as he goes everywhere with me, literally stuck to my hips! *laughs*
