Anyone any idea what sling this is? Doesn't say on it it has clips like a Connecta.

That looks quite similar to my boba sling...

Thanks Noodle, just googled Boba and it is similar.
How do you get on with it? Would you recommend?

I like it, my only gripe with it is the chest strap when doing a front carry and attempting to do that up on your own is a bit tricky. That could be me though and with practice would be ok. Ben is heavy but doesn't feel it in this!
It looks a little like my friends Ergo. The connecta doesn't have a padded waist band, on that basis, i'd personally grab it!

Yeah it's def not a Connecta. Looks more padded.
Did you use it from birth Noodle? Thanks for your replies.
10/11/2013 at 19:38
No we only started using it when Ben was about 7 months

I was going to say it looks a lot like my SILs ergo baby, but someone beat me to the punch :)

There are a lot of fake ergos on the go i believe. Does it not have a label?
10/11/2013 at 20:01
No the lady says she can't see a label. She bought it used as well.
It does look like a Bebo

Id be cautious. You dont want a dud.as it maybe unsafe
10/11/2013 at 20:42
Do you want me to see where the label is on mine?
10/11/2013 at 21:00
It's doesn't look like an Ergo to me. They have more distinctive branding on them. I'd be wary of something with no labels on it to be honest. Even carriers made by a WAHM tend to have something on them to identify them.
10/11/2013 at 21:09
Thanks folks. I was just curious really x

Not sure, but it does look like some form of hybrid carrier as all the brands would have the label on it somewhere. Would personally avoid. There are too many fakes out there that could be unsafe.
Edited to add having looked again at the photo the black straps on the top photo aren't sewed on symmetrically. Def seems an amateur job.
