Back killing me, ring sling not wrkin what to use???

Okay ladies help!!!!!
I have only used ring slings my best friend made me and he is soo big and its killing me!!!....SHe made a mei tie style carrier that worked for me if I could tie it under is rear. But it got to short when he got bigger.
I need something that will take away the burning shoulder pain and back pain. I have been looking at a beco thinking it may work better???? What do you guys think??? I need something and I am moving to florda in a few days so I dont want something super hot. I dont know????? help
Are all the carriers that work better so expensive...I wanted to try a beco because I have heard great things but I am like on the price not in my budget at all...maybe i could fine someone that has one faded or aoemthing that could sell it for cheaper??? Or would it even work better need advice ladies

Re: Back killing me, ring sling not wrkin what to use???

I would try a different body style of mei tai. Aria Baby, Kozy, Enchanted Snuggle (I think) are all taller bodied carriers. I love my Freehands and Mei Tai Baby's for super hot weather - they come up to my 8m old's shoulders if I snuggle him down in there really well.

I'd get another style of Mei Tai. There are some great WAHM ones for around $40. Although i like wraps, it would be cooler than a wrap, and you could even get one made out of solarveil. Let me see if I can find the link of the one that everyone raves about...

I totally agree with this. And honestly, get a good brand. They will be well-made and comfy, and will work until your child is 3 years or more! I recommend Babyhawk as well as the above brands. You can find some good prices on used ones at The Babywearer.com

I would not recommend a moby for a baby past 15lbs, but JMO!! Feel free to pm me if you have any other questions. I've had A LOT of carriers.

The search function is down....
anyway, I agree with the above poster, either get a good brand (Eden is another one that I have and love), or if you get a WAHM, get one that is recommended by lots of people. The one I"m thinking of was something like TwoMamas or something. But you can get a nice used brand name one on thebabywearer.com as suggested. Good luck!

My Mei-Tai is the only type of carrier that my back can handle. Ring slings and pouch slings both made it ache.
