Re: Too much babywearing or the wrong crrier?
The only sort of carrier I would ever even consider doing that with would be a frame pack from Deuter, Osprey, Kelty, of Vaude. I would never do that in a pack that wasn't designed by a backpacking company.
Also, the "waist belt" is supposed to sit on the upward curve of your hips. Just so you know. x_x'
