My sister-in-law swears by hers, which is why we were looking to get or make one. Also, I'd read about babies that pull a shawl off, exposing mom. As for slings, apparently some are cut wider, and work better as covers. I'm clueless on this so far, though.
Now selling homestyle baked goods (cookies, brownies, baklava, pies, & cakes) made with many organic, fair-trade and/or local pesticide-free ingredients, as well as many of those ingredients themselves, at our shop in Donghu (Neihu).

We've all been exposed :lol: ........and luckily we had the baby to blame it on! Kidding!! But yeah even covers get kicked around also, babies love looking at mom and around and even turning their head away momentarily to take in their surroundings, the cover is just a hindrance. Again, just my perspective, maybe other moms especially at parent pages will give you better insight.

Neither of my kids would EVER put up with any kind of cover and I think they're stupid anyway. My rule was, if an adult is allowed to eat here, a baby is allowed to eat here too. Full stop.

I used my sling for two years with EACH of my three kids and I found it my single most inportant piece of equipment. I used a Maya Wrap which was one of the orignals way back when. It has two steel rings, which never slipped and en extra long "tail" which I could use as a nursing cover. There are instructions here on how to make your own sling and I may even have a couple of exra rings around if you're interested https://www.mayawrap.com/n_sewsling.php

my son is three....he always slept by himself...we moved the crib around when he was young and then upgraded to the adjustable ikea bed..not the cheap ikea kiddies bed-the one that can be moved from 120 cm to 180 cm-about $9000 NT.
if money is a concern, because we only used our crib for a year....ask around...we got ours from a relative...but just because it's free doesn't mean it's good. look around on the net, people are selling them all over the place.
i strongly suggest not sleeping with your baby...first of all, it's very dangerous....second, babies don't have the strength to maneuver around...don't listen to other people that say sleep with the baby..put the crib in your room, yes, but don't have the baby in your bed...
