HELP Me Decide! So many SSC's! What to do?

Please help me! I have decided to invest in a SSC but there are so many out there. I need experienced babywearers to tell me their favorites. I was looking at the boba 3g and the onya outback. Is there anyone who has used them and can say which is the most comfortable, etc. The Beco gemini also looks awesome. I love that it can be front facing and worn on the side. But there are soo many choices; angelica, beco butterfly. I am over-whelmed!!! Can someone bring me some clarity, please? Will I really get hot in a cotton carrier? Will I use the foot straps? Is the gemini even comfortable to wear on the side? My head is spinning....

I have 2 Oh Snaps ans love them. I'm really short torsoed so they fit me well.

My friend has 2 bobas. Shes taller than I am and she like them. She never uses the foot straps. She says they make her feel like a horse. Her 2 yr old kicks her worse when his feet are in them.

Have fun shopping

Amanda . Blaming my phone for typos and crap.

Try looking for a local babywearing group to try on. Made a huge difference for me in deciding. Alternatively, many online sites will rent and give you a discount toward purchase.

I have the Onya cruiser which is the same design but in cotton. I love it! I have a bb2 and really don't like it for nursing or back carry. My DD is 18 months and she actually asks to go in the Onya now and HATED the back carry with the bb2. I was really worried that she was starting to not like being worn but it turns out it was the carrier.
Good luck finding what works for you. I know what a huge difference the right carrier can make.

My vote is for a kanga from blookangaroo but the thing is what one person may love another may not. There are so many factors involved including your frame,your childs age/weight,when you want to use it,ect.... There is no one def. carrier for every person,just the right carrier for each particular person. Are you a member of thebabywearer. They have an area where mamas lend there carriers to try. Also, just as another mama suggested, find a baby wearing group close to you (you can find out about one on thebabywearer) and try some stuff on. Your not gonna know what's right for you until you try a couple of things on. HTH. GOOD LUCK!

how old is your baby? have you seen/tried any carriers in person? watched any youtube videos showing them? what are you leaning towards?
