I would suggest a Boba, Tula, or Kinderpack.

I have had an Ergo and sold that after getting a Beco Butterfly. I have a 2G and 3G Boba and I reach for the 3G Boba the most. I love that there is a thing that snaps a purse strap on, I love how comfy it is, I love that DS can use the stirrups as needed (no SSC except Kinderpack goes knee to knee on a toddler so this helps them stay in the optimal m shape for proper hip development). I've never tried Kinderpack but have heard great things.

Oh yeah-I wore DS1 in my beco butterfly until I wasn't allowed during pregnancy (preterm labor) and he was 2.5 and like 27ish lbs-he rides in the Boba a few minutes here and there now at 4 yrs and 35+ lbs. DS2 rides regularly and is 19 m and 25+ lbs.

Re: Pls help me choose a ssc carrier.

I have 2 Ergos - the Original and Sport. I like both of them for different reasons. I preferred the Original when DS was smaller, but now that he is bigger I do like my Sport.

I just recently purchased the Boba Air - and I really like it; it works great for quick trips, and I LOVE how tiny it gets; fits in the diaper bag great.

How do you carry your DS in your Ergo Sport? I really want to carry DS on my back but am concerned he's too tall for Ergo Sport.

I carry him on my back in the Ergo Sport - I just attempted to measure him today and he was about 34in tall. I think the Sport is actually taller than the regular Ergo.

I thick it's taller too. I just wasn't terribly comfortable and it didnt seem like DS was secure so I got a Boba 3G. So far, it seems to be better for us

Re: Pls help me choose a ssc carrier.

I have a Boba 3G, and Ergo, and a Butterfly II. I love them all for different reasons. I definitaly grab for the Boba most of the time when wearing my 23 lb. 2.5 yr old DD. I think my favorite of the 3 in general is probably the ergo, for some reason it just seems to fit me better. However, the foot stirrups on the Boba do make a BIG difference in distributing the weight making it more comfortable to carry her for long periods of time.

I used to use an Ergo, I thought it was so comfy - until I got a KinderPack that is! KinderPacks are way more comfy than Ergos!
