Some good brands are ergobaby (could be pricey though), Honest Co sells a pretty good (company co-founded by Jessica Alba, Hollywood actress) - the company is dedicated to safe ingredients products. Otherwise I would recommended Burlington Coat Factory, they have the best prices for baby anything. One of the most important thing to look for when buying baby slings/carriers is the material of the product. Also, you need to evaluate whether how you're planning to carry your baby. For instance, colicky and smaller size babies -- you may want to opt for softer material sling with the baby cuddled close to you diagonally.
Here are Genkihouse Sling instructions - I tried to attach scanned copies of the instructions, however it exceeded the file size limit:
For front use
Hold your baby close to your chest
Still holding baby close to your chest, grab sling and place over baby - Genkihouse logo facing away from you, arrange baby's legs through leg openings. Alternatively, you can lay the sling on a change table with logo facing down, lie baby on top and put legs through leg holes then lift the baby and the sling onto your chest.
Still holding baby close to you, place sling straps over your shoulders.
Reach behind with one arm (still holding baby with the other) and firmly take the strap from behind opposite shoulder. Your other arm still holds the baby and sling.
Thread the strap through D ring with one hand whilst your other hand still holds the baby.
Simply 'hook' the strap through the D ring with your index finger.
Do not change hands at this stage.
Tension strap backwards - away from your back and don't let go.
Feel the baby's weight now firmly supported by the sling at your waistline.
As you continue to hold the same strap reach behind with the other hand and thread the second strap through its D-ring. The straps should criss cross over your back.
Bring straps together, adjust tension to suit and tie a secure knot in the middle of your back.
Check the position of the baby - you should be able to kiss his/her head.
Baby can also face outwards when he/she gets older.
Adjust the wide panels over both your shoulders and lower
back to ensure that you are comfortable and that your child is carried
safely,then bring the thinner straps around just over your chest through the loops/rings and pull tight as if tightening a belt around your waist. be sure the straps are secure and it should hold tightly with no give.
