We have the Beco Gemini that I use for walks and longer trips outside of the house, but am looking for something easy to pop DS into while I am at home. I used to use the Moby when he was a cuddly newborn, but now that he's almost six months old and probably about twenty pounds, I don't find it as comfortable, plus there is the hassle factor of putting it on.
I really am just looking for something easy and quick that I can use around the house. I've been getting into the habit of just carrying him on my hip, but it would be really nice to have both of my hands back. I tried a sling that a friend lent me, but he's already heavy enough that it's not really that comfortable. (It's possible that I'm also sort of a wimp...)
Someone recommended the Scootababy to me as a super-easy, comfortable, but supportive hip carrier. Sounds great, but is it worth the extra money? It's definitely not cheap, and I don't want to spend a lot on something that is essentially no quicker or easier than the Beco. Thoughts?
