We're taking a family trip in July (DD will be 5 mo old) to Colorado to go hiking. Does anyone have any tips on a good carrier to be used while hiking for her age group? She is petite :-) Thanks

I have a paptapum which is really nice for hikes becasue the back support is brilliant.
I'd say an ergo would be very good too, but dont have one as they are so dear.

I love the ergo and have hiked upwards of 5-6 miles at a stretch with dd since she was about 6 months. you can use it in the side carry postition very comfortably which allows you to play with the baby while hiking. In the front carry you can easily drop a side and nurse while hiking and as the baby gets tired you can back or forward carry very comfortably while they snooze. We have taken an extended trip and the ergo just folds right up for storage in the tent......oh i use/bring a rain poncho with a bigger hole at the neck and forward carry in weather.

We also have a kelty pack which we used when she was tiny too, its frame is super light and it has the coverage for weather,but you have to stop to tend to the baby quite often.
