help me decide on a carrier

i'm expecting #3 in feb... i will have a 2 1/2 year old, 16 month and newborn.

anyways...i figure i'm going to need something that is comfy enough for park trips, grocery shopping, errands (longer time periods of holding and very comfy)

i have a moby and a maya, but i was thinking a back carrier.

what do you all suggest? ergo, mei tai? others?

Re: help me decide on a carrier

I love my Beco Buttferfly! It's the only carrier I'm comfortable getting a little one onto my back by myself with plus it's really comfy. I don't like nursing in it, but I never really liked nursing in any carrier.

I have an Ergo Sport currently and am I'm not in love. There's nothing wrong with it but the straps slide off frequently and I can't really tighten it enough to comfortably wear DS on my back (I'm petite, though at 5'2" and 120 lbs). I am saving for a Boba 3G and hope I'll like it better.

Oh, and to answer your question (sorry!), the Boba 3G is supposed to be awesome for teenies through toddlers. I hope I love it as much as the mamas whose reviews I've read!

I second the Boba 3G because it'd be great for all 3 of your little ones.

I like the ERGO - but my son does not. I have tried and tried, but he just doesn't like it. I recently bought a Baby Hawk and he LOVES IT!!

I have had my Boba 3G for a few days now and I am digging this carrier! It has been awesome for us so far. My DS is 14 months old and fits in it very well w/room to grow. I can't comment on it for newborns though I've heard good things.
