The Maya Wrap stands out among baby slings as the one most recommended in both professional and owner-written reviews. Lactation experts often recommend baby slings as a good choice for nursing mothers because they are discrete for breastfeeding. Reviewers often describe slings as easy to use and indispensable once you get the hang of them, but they do have a steeper learning curve than most other styles of carrier. The Maya Wrap comes in a wide variety of fabrics, and it gets good feedback for style and aesthetics. It's built to hold babies from infancy up to 35 pounds, meaning it has a longer useful life than standard soft baby carriers such as the popular BabyBjorn Original (*Est. $100). The Maya Wrap is adjustable, but some parents complain that the baby's weight is still distributed unevenly.
The book "Baby Bargains" is our top review source for baby carriers in general, and it includes a short but useful assessment of the Maya Wrap baby sling. Parents.com and BabyTipsOnline.com all include short entries on the Maya Wrap as well. TheBabyWearer.com has enough user reviews of the Maya Wrap to make it a highly credible review source on its own.

1. Baby Bargains
"Baby Bargains" is a reliable source when it comes to baby gear reviews. Unfortunately the Maya Wrap gets only a brief mention as a reader favorite. Authors Denise and Alan Fields also discuss slings in a general way.

TheBabyWearer.com is a good place to find baby carrier reviews along with general information on baby wearing. The dozens of parents and caregivers posting reviews of the Maya Wrap give it just-above-average marks, saying it's versatile but not the easiest carrier to master.

Parents.com includes the Maya Wrap in its report on baby slings and carriers. Reviewer Alisa Stoudt praises the light shoulder padding and built-in pocket; she's less enthusiastic about the amount of extra fabric.

Of the three baby slings reviewed at BabyTipsOnline.com, the Maya Wrap gets top spot with a perfect score. The write-up is based solely on one wearer's experience, though, making it more like a user review than a professional one.
