I have LIKE'd both on facebook!
I have not been so lucky at finding this kind of thing in my local shops.  Really could use these products about now.  We are going on our 4th cold in two months.  My 3 year old and 9 month old are miserable!
  Well, I had some 'screaming' pain, I didn't literally scream because I am not a screamer, but I did cry almost every time and my toes would curl.  Every time my son latched between 2 and 4 weeks it was like a spear from my nipple through my body out my back! It lasted about 10-15 seconds every time.  I saw a Lactation Consultant... there were no issues with latch or transfer, no mastitis, nothing.  We have since gotten over it.

My son is almost 9 months, weighs the same.  I use a homemade moby style baby wrap.  I usually have him facing me. I haven't had issues with my back or shoulders while using it, but my hips do start to hurt after a while. I also have an infantino carrier (similar to bjorn) but I find that one has been really uncomfortable since he hit the 15 lb mark.
