What is your favorite carrier right now?

I was loving my sleepy till I got my k'tan and that was just faster/easier for me once she got older and little more active. I just bought an ergo on babysteals last week. omg LOVE! and she loves it too.

I'm so excited for it. I'll keep thek'tan in my car like I have been just in case I don't grab the ergo before we leave. but I'm so excited for this.

(on a side note, C is small enough weight wise, that she can ride on my back with the ergo as well )

I have a Mei Tai and a Beco. I like them both for different reasons. I keep the Mei Tai in my car.

I have a baby hawk mei tei that I like and use when I need to, and I really like it, but honestly Avery is happier in the stroller or riding in the cart these days so it doesn't get a ton of use.

We have a ergo and a boba. The ergo is my husbands and the boba is mine. I love them both for different reasons.

No baby carrying for us anymore. Brynlee is all about walking or riding in the cart or stroller.

Next time, I will definitely invest in a better carrier. I just had the two that I got at my baby shower and neither myself nor Brynlee enjoyed either of the carriers!

Carter still fits comfortably in our homemade wrap, he can still nap in it even! I do love the ergo (I need to order one, I've only used my sister's) and Carter loves it as well!

They were two that someone got us from Target. One did not fit me right at all and I could never get it situated to not completely kill my back. The other one looked like it hurt her legs and she was never sitting right in it so she was only in it twice. Once with me and once with DH. I'd have to look at what kind they are, but they are in a bin in the garage.

Sounds like they were something like a bjorn or more commonly called a crotch dangler, those are so uncomfortable and puts the baby in a non seated position. Let me know if you need any suggestions next time around.

I wore Andrew today. I have a Boba air. I love that it is lightweight in the FL heat but I still think that I want an Ergo. He does really well when I wear him and some times the stroller just doesn't work. We usually back carry.

Someone gave us a bjorn that we used for a few weeks but she just did not sit right in it and then we bought an Ergo....never looked back. We all love it!

I used to use a baby bjorn but it would give me horrible back pain after wearing him. I used to use the moby wrap but haven't used it for awhile now. Right now we use an ergo occassionally. I love the ergo b/c i use the hip carry and it's great. We also have discovered back carriers. He loves and we love it.

I love our Ergo, I wear her in it at least a few times a week. I still use my mei tai occasionally, but always reach for the Ergo first.

We started with the Moby Wrap when Miles was a newborn then graduated to the Boba when he was 4-5 months old. Got a killer deal on BabySteals. Then I was lucky enough to snatch up that same deal that Ro did on the Ergos and WOW do I love it! I always loved my Boba but I feel like this is better for an older kid. Holds him close but still gives him some room to move around. I also love the hip carry because he can look forward but still be somewhat forward facing. I'm not talented enough to do the back carry when I am alone and Miles gets frustrated when he's stuck facing me.
