Rockin' Baby Ring Sling*
While there is a slight learning curve in figuring out how to thread and adjust a ring sling, with practice, it is one of the fastest and simplest carriers to use. I often keep mine in the car so it's handy for quick errands when I want to wear the baby so I have my hands free, but don't want to put in the time and effort to wrap him.
I also love ring slings as a nursing-friendly carrier. With some practice, it is quick and easy to adjust the sling and lower the baby to nursing level, then tighten it back up when the baby is done eating. The tail of the sling can be used to cover the baby or the top of the breast if privacy is preferred.
