Because my DD doesn't like to be put down at all...I think it's wise for me to invest in a sling. Except...I know nothing about shopping for one of these. I can't use a Snugli carrier or anything like that because of my size. I'm 5'3" and about 200 pounds.

Can anyone point me in the right direction...or offer any tips?

babywearer.com is a good resource. also the babywearer community might have some good advice. I make and sell mei tais, you can see them here dream_carriers, I can also make pouch slings and ring slings. You might have better luck with a mei tai or ring sling because both are adjustable, vs the pouch sling, which you have to choose a size. if you have any questions feel free to email me-earthmama76@hotmail.com or aim zoesmama76

I suggest you try a mie-tie. They are designed to fit anyone. And they are more comfy than a sling. I can wear my giant girl (25lbs) for hours without it hurting. My husband wears mine occasionally (250+lbs) and it fits him just fine. He got mine at nestlings.com. I also have a mayawrap (extralong) that fits both of us and I use that for short trips.
