Best Hip Carrier?

I feel so silly even writing this, having been an avid baby wearer for all 3 DDs, but somehow I have never really needed a hip carrier before this LO . Every child is truly different! Anyway, I have an ellaroo that I have used as a hip carrier but it is either too tight or too loose, and it's the same with the moby wrap. I want to get a carrier specifically that I can put on and off easy. DD is almost 11 months old. TIA

I can't recommend a hip carrier but I would also love to hear what people have to say is the best hip carrier! My DD is 4 months and her favourite place to be is on my hip.

I use a wrap conversion ring sling all the time for hip carries with my 12 month old, it's very quick and easy once you get the hang of it. I also know some moms who have liked the Scootababy hip carrier.

I also use a ring sling with my 12 month old. I feel very chic when I wear it!

Okay forgive me but I can't find the list on DS that tells us what company matches the abbreviation. Which one is "bbslen?" TIA

Found it! Bali Baby Stretch. Any other good hip carriers out there?

Actually, BB Slen is not an abbreviation, it is a woven wrap manufacturer (and totally separate from Bali Baby Stretch wraps).
If you google "BB slen" you'll find several online stores that sell their wraps. They are one of the more affordable brands of wraps.

Thanks, that helps a lot! are these similar in length to the ellaroo woven wraps? If so I have I have one already... Maybe I just need to try a different way of getting DD into it...
