Re: What To look for in a baby carrier
The portable baby.com site was a great help to compare all the different brands out there. I went with the Beco Gemini, its the only soft-structured carrier that does a forward facing and a hip carry, plus it doesn't require any insert for newborns like the Ergo. I got a good deal on frogmama.com for a used one. I haven't gotten to actually use it yet since I'm still 7 weeks from babies arrival, but it seems very well made.
