whats the best brand for 9 month old?

i have a maya wrap that was awesome when owen was lighter and smaller. he is starting to get fussy playing on his own and gets upset easier when he cant move on his own yet. i like having him close to me. the maya is nice for the hip carry for short periods of time but my back gives out and i would like something a little more resistant to movement if i have to bend up and down. i also want something i can take a walk in for an hour or so at a time where my lower back wont give out. does something like this exsist? im willing to spend somewhere between $50- $75 new. used would be better because budget sucks. i stay home with owen all day and would really like a "break" from always having to entertain him on the floor, he loves watching what i do in the maya. i would also like the carrier to replace the stroller when we have to use it.

I use a mei tai or ssc for my 9 mo old. I'm comfy for hours with him on my back ( I have a kozy mt and a beco 4g but have used many brands of both with success)

The sling will become useful again in a few months when your LO starts walking, and wants up and down constantly. But for an older infant, an SSC is really the thing. It should have a padded hip belt so that some of the weight is on your hips instead of all on your shoulders. Also, make sure that the body of it is wide enough and tall enough to take your LO into toddlerhood. I'm a fan of the Catbirdbaby Pikkolo, but have heard great things about Action Baby, Boba, Kinderpack, etc.

I just got a second-hand (but looks brand-new) Ergo for $50 on Craigslist. I like that I can wear my son front and back . . . just wish I could face him out in the front.

Love my ToddlerHawk (BabyHawk!) $33 shipped on ebay. It is the MOST comfortable carrier I have ever used. I love it. My LO is 2 and I'll be able to wear him for a long time yet, and he's 3 feet tall.
