I have a ring sling that we absolutely love but DD is about 28 lbs and just turned 1. She is walking but has her moments when all she wants to be is held. The ring sling is killing my shoulders. I'm looking for something that can spread her weight out a bit more, maybe a Mei Tai. Opinions? I've looked around on Etsy and found a couple that I like but they are recommended to 30lbs only. I doubt she'll hit 30 before the spring but if I'm going to invest in a carrier I'd like it to last a bit longer than that. Money's a bit tight since we just bought a house.
I was looking at an Ergo but I think it might be a little out of our price range.
Thoughts? opinions? TIA!
Edited to add: I've only used the Ring Sling in the hip carry (didn't buy it till she was about 5 months). And I'm looking for something to wear her around the house and maybe for longish walks (30 to 60 minutes at a clip).
