Re: a good carrier

I use my hotsling to (hip) carry my DS who is probably about 20 lbs.

I just got a babyhawk MT. I really like it and it would be more comfortable for longer walks. Just not as easy to pop josh in and out.

Re: a good carrier

I recomend Ring slings for the versatility and ease of use to my customers. But I think a MT is also a good option to have for some mamas. I personally cant live without my ring sling. I wear my 23lb. 13 mo old in the Hip carry, almost everywhere.

(BTW- I make both RSs & MTs)

Re: a good carrier

I am looking for a MT also, in girly colors- new or used- so if you all have any suggestions on where to look I would much appreciate it as I am sure the OP would as well!

Re: a good carrier

I keep thinking I should try a MT... LOL I'm really liking my Ergo, though. I can use it for both of my children (DD is almost 4 and DS is 7 1/2 months). I haven't tried to use it with DS on my back, though.

Re: a good carrier

Well, I'm in the minority here because I don't even have a Mei Tai - but gosh, maybe I should try one. My son is almost 16 lbs and we take walks with out Moby Wrap. As he gets bigger, we may need to switch to the Ellaroo more often, because it is less stretchy, but the Moby works great and he loves it.

DS is still too young for a hip carry so we do front carries in the wraps. I have a pouch and a sling for when hip carries are an option, but obviously, haven't tried them for that yet.
