I got my first sling when Kate was about 3 months old and I wish I'd had it earlier! It was especially invaluable on the buses in Scotland! We didn't have a car in Edinburgh, and bringing a stroller on the bus was generally a real pain. And now that I have two children, despite having a car again, I don't know what I'd do without it! I can attend to Kate without having to put a crying baby down, and it's easy to get Will to fall asleep in the sling. In the grocery store, I can wear Will and put Kate in the cart seat.
Here's a good article from The Natural Child Project called "Ten Reasons to Wear Your Baby." Apparently, it is quite good for babies to be carried as much as possible, especially in the first few months when they are transitioning from womb to world.
