Suggestions for a 38 pounder? And can an ergo just get too old?

My DD is 18 months and 38 pounds. Needless to say it's rough having her on my back in the ergo. Is it possible that my ergo is just worn out and not supportive anymore? It's had heavy use for 4 years.

I've had a kinderpack and it was OK but not awesome, and I've tried all the other standard SSCs and nothing compares to the ergo for me. Any other suggestions? I try not to wear her much but she is in a super clingy stage and wants me to carry her constantly.

I just saw at the egro website that they are only made to last until about 5 months -- shocking. I used mine easily until 24 months, but that was probably about 30 lbs at the most. <I have been corrected that I misread the site. It goes up to 45lbs and whatever age that is (in theroy)>

I wouldn't think the ergo could get too old. Just the baby too big...

I haven't tried any others, been looking at the toddler Action Baby Carrier and the Bobo 2g/3g.

Is she tall as well? The problem we found with the Ergo was that the shell only hit DD at mid-back by toddler age, so she was no longer at a comfortable angle for weight distribution. A woven wrap or a toddler-size carrier with a tall shell would likely solve your problem.
