Side carry help

I'm new to babywearing. My guy is almost 6 months old and weighs 18+ lbs. I used to have a Boba wrap, but he was NOT a fan of facing in. I'd like to get something that does a side carry (not sure if I'm suave enough for a back carry). Suggestions?

Re: Side carry help

Are you looking for something to do with a woven wrap? You could check out poppins or robins hip carries on youtube, they are fairly simple. If you are looking for another carrier, I love using a ringsling for quick in and out, and also love my scootababy. I must say though, my 6 month old absolutely loves being on my back, so I would give it a shot - with a mirror, on a bed/couch. It's not so bad once you get the hang of it

Re: Side carry help

I love a short/mid lenth woven wrap for hip carries. Rebozo, robin's hip carry and poopin's hip carry are great. Ring slings are also great but I personally never got the hang of them.

I love my Scootababy. I've also got a Swanke Hip Hammock (not the Playtex version) that I got off of FSOT that's pretty good too.
