Last time around, I didn't have a wrap to wear the baby and I ended up with back surgery at 11 mo. I think this time, I'm going to bite the bullet and go for it. However, I have no clue about which ones are best and most comfortable and easiest to use. Can anyone shed some light on this for me, please? Some of them look pretty complicated and I'm getting intimidated, now! TIA!

I found this blog post to be particularly helpful. She talks about multiple carriers she has tried, the pros and cons, and then declares one her favorite.

I think Whitney shared a great blog review! For me, for what I've tried, I really like the Moby Wrap for the newborn period and the Ergo long term.

I have a love/hate relationship with carriers. None of my babies have liked them in the newborn period. And the boys both just hated them all period. Belly would like to be in them for a few minutes then would get fussy again.... turns out since the straps were too long it was causing me back pain and her to be uncomfy.
You can read about our time with the carrier here:
Two Blues and a Pink: Ahhhh! The joy of a well-sized carrier!

This is exactly what I'm planning as well. I already bought the Ergo and I have a Moby Wrap on my baby registry. Hopefully I'll get it too!

As I stated in a previous thread, I loved my Moby for the newborn period. DD really loved it too. She would sleep like nobody's business in that thing. Last time, I had a Bjorn for when she was bigger, and it was ok. I wasn't in love though. I now know that it really isn't good for baby, and can cause some damage. I am looking to get an Ergo this time around.

I liked the Moby wrap. You can look at youtube videos to lean how to wrap them.

Easiest: Ergo (some also say Beco; it is in the same class but I never tried it personally)

Good for little babies: Moby, but it's a huge pain in the butt, and those of us who are plus-sized find that it doesn't wrap as many times as it should. The Baby K'tan is supposed to be like an Ergo without all the wrapping (it's pre-looped plus a sash).

Pretty - Mei tai. You can get these custom made with whatever design you want for the right price. Ours had dragons, of course. It's like an Ergo but you have to adjust the straps yourself, negating the ease of use factor. Also, I found that I had to retie the straps every twenty freaking minutes. I will likely not be using one this time around.

Thanks so much, ladies! Sounds like the ergo for the later months and the mobi for the early months are the best solutions. Whitney, that blog was awesome! I actually got nosy on there and poked around a bit more after reading the one about wraps, she's funny!!! The part about parenting and the Louis CK video cracked me up. SO TRUE!
Off to update my registry!!! Thanks again for the guidance, ladies!
