Re: Best carrier for a bad back

No slings!

I have a Maya Tie, it's a MT with wrap style straps. It's my very favorite, wore it all over Disney World with a toddler. Here's a link:

Re: Best carrier for a bad back

I have a compressed disk in my lower middle back. I actually find back carries more comfortable that front carries. I think a back carry helps me keep good posture and a front carry causes me to stoop forward a bit too much and that can cause my back to act up.

I own a few MTs and a Beco and both are good, but I prefer my Beco over all other carriers. I can wear ds for hours and not feel a thing. His weight is so well distributed and it mostly falls on my hips instead of right on my back like in a front carry. Just my

Re: Best carrier for a bad back

After 4 children and just about every sling/carrier later...I have found and absolutely LOVE the Ergo!!! Your babies weight is distributed more onto your hips instead of pulling on shoulders/back. It works from newborn-45lbs!! I did yard work for 3 hrs with my 2.5 yr old in the Ergo and was not at all uncomfortable.
Great carrier...highly recommended!

Okay first off step away from ANY one shouldered carrier. Your best bet is a MT or a wrap. I think the first thing you should do is find a local NINO group. nineinnineout.org
