Re: Need help choosing a carrier
I started doing hip carries with both of mine as soon as they could sit up w/ minimal assistance (4mo-ish). For a younger baby, pull the fabric up over their shoulders, only uo to the armpits once they're good at sitting.

For the original poster, if you really want to get stuff done, I'd recommend a SSC like a Beco, Ergo, or MT and do a back carry. I hear facing out like you'd do in a Baby Bjorn isn't ideal because it puts pressure in the crotch area. If you really want her to face out on the front of you, I'd get a ring sling and sit her cross legged and face out that way.
