Best baby wearing for at home???

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi there-

I have a 11 month old DD who is wants to be held ALL THE TIME.  I have an Ergo, Moby, K-tan, ring sling and a Mei Tai.  None of them seem to do the job.  I want something that holds her very tight against me so I can bend over and pick up toys and have an arm free.  I also want something that is easy to get on and off.  

 

The Ergo is by far my favorite, but it is not great for around the house and I like to keep it in my car to use when I am out and about.

 

Any ideas for me.

At 11 months, you should be able to get her onto your back.  The Ergo is great for back carries, as well as your Mei Tai.  You can also use a woven wrap, but not the Moby.  If you like her on your front, try wrapping the Moby tighter to get a nice tight fit, or ring sling her on your hip and make sure you pull the top and middle of the rail to get her snug against your body.  I was not a fan of the K'tan, as it was not adjustable, and pulled on my shoulders. 

 

Really, the back carry would probably be the most ergonomic for you and hands-free-ing :) lol.  You can even use the Mei Tai to get her up in a higher back carry so bending over is easier (you can do this with a woven wrap, too).  BUT, if DD likes you to cuddle her on your front, you can get a woven wrap that will support her nicely in a Front Cross Carry or, like I said, fiddle with tightening up the Moby.

 

Hope that was helpful!

I would buy or make a woven wrap if I were you.  Just as comfy as the Moby, but more supportive.
