My 2 year old daughter loves being carried but neither one of us loves the Ergo anymore. She dislikes being on my back, I do not find the hip carry very supportive and she really is too big for the front carry. I still want to be able to carry her, especially during those trying toddler moments when she needs it most. At 32 lbs, she is getting heavy so I need something sturdy but also very supportive. I have been thinking about getting a woven wrap. Does anyone have any thoughts on this, any brand suggestions or perhaps an alternative to a wrap?
Best Wrap for a Toddler?
I have the same problem only I have never use a baby carrier, I didn't know that was such thing as babywearing until a few month ago, I was just holding my baby in my arms without the help of any baby carrier, but now, he is to heavy to hold for a long period of time, so I'm lost, there is so many options. Can somebody help me?
Try kindercarry.com. They aren't cheap, but are comparable to some (though not all) woven wraps. You can get one in a "preschool" size, designed for a bigger kid. I haven't tried one myself, but someone in my local bw'ing group swears by them, and they seem to be the go to carrier for a larger babe.
I got both of mine used on TBW and I just did a search and it was hard for me to find a store in the US to buy them new. Here is one http://www.uppybaby.ca/categories/Wraps/Woven/BBSlen/
Here is what natibaby stripes looks like http://www.natibaby.net/sklep/index.php?p=p_11&sName=woven-wraps-stripes-100-cotton
Anyway, check TBW for more suggestions and I would definitely go for used because they are more broken in.
