Re: Petite mamas

I'm 5'2, 110lbs. Im using Action Baby Carrier, it fits me well. I had even read in some reviews that ABC is best for petite. It is also a lightweight SSC so it is cooler and comfy...hope this helps. Goodluck!

I got my Boba 3G a couple days ago and I am loving it!!! First of all, it's a beautiful carrier (I bought it in Tweet). It is soooo easy to adjust and has been just awesome so far. DS seems to like it too but we haven't used it for an extended period of time yet. He definitely seems to fit in it much better than in our Ergo Sport. I feel great it it and the straps stay up (they slide down a lot on Ergo). I'm hopeful that I've found my dream carrier :-)

I'm 5'2" and 125 pounds and I use an Osprey Poco Plus. It's larger than the regular baby carriers but I love it. It has compartments for diapers, wipes, snacks, wallet. I highly recommend it.

I hated the butterfly for front carries, I'm just a little taller than you and about 5 lbs more. I love the Gemini though, and just started using the butterfly on my back and it's great for that. I also just started trying to put da on my back with a BH Mei tai and it's more comfortable because I can get him higher.

I think body length plays a part too, I'm short but have a really short body with long legs in comparison, so nothing ever seems to fit well, I'm assuming carriers would be just the same.
