So I have a ring sling which I really like, but Parker is really likes to look around and I think he would enjoy a back carry alot more - supposably this can be done in a ring sling, but I cant figure it out.......so off to buy more!
We are going on a camping trip soon so it'd be a great time to have one.

This carrier has been on my want list for a while - I was debating between it and the ring sling in the begining.....my fear is all the wrap nonsense is going to confuse me to no end----but......what to do.....

Then I read that moby's (which I guess is similar to this) are bad for back carries? anyone have any input? I need to stay in this price range so an ergo doesnt qualify...

I used a moby exclusively between months 3 and 7 when out and about. I looked at few vids on how to do the back carry and decided to go with a mei tai. Best thing I ever did! At 7 month old we were already butting heads in the front carry but in the mei tai she sits lower. Also the back carry is a breeze! I recommend that you check the ads on the right side and look for the zing slings one and click. It is a JM member that has that shop and from what I remember she is pretty cheap.

I'm a lurker but.... i have that exact one but in a different color.Its great for newborn to like 4ish months but then i think the baby gets too big and its kind of a pain.My son is 4 and a half months and almost 15 pounds and hes starting to get to heavy for it so after like 30 mins it starts to sag and needs re adjusting.I just got a mei tai a couple weeks ago and i love it.Its so much easier and more conveinient to put on and it can go up to like 40 pounds i think.And i don't know about how mobys are for back carries. Its pretty difficult to put on the front so i can't imagine putting it on the back,i would def. suggest a mei tai wrap though.

I got this one and it's great!

I do not know about any other sling other than the Baby K'tan Baby Carrier - Sling, Babywearing, Clothing, and more!

I have it and love it. I have not tried the back carry yet but I know it is an option. Good luck!

I just made a Moby style wrap!!! All I did was buy 5 meteres of fabric, (A kind that "rolls" when cut, not frays.. Mines stretchy) cut it down the middle to make two, 5 meter pieces.. and voila, 2 moby type wraps!! Then I jsut watched demos on how to wrap it.. Apparently you can back carry with these, but Im not going to attempt it till Mykaila is a bit older since shes only 5 mths now.. Im guna wait till shes like yer lil guys age, 9 mths or so... Heres me, mykaila and our new wrap
