I have a 1 month old son and my mother watches him occasionally now and will be watching him twice a week when I go back to work. When my husband and I returned from running errands today, my mother was "wearing" our son inside her zipped up fleece jacket, and he was wayyy down low. Oh my gosh, I was horrified. I realized that I need to get her a carrier ASAP! I have a Beco Gemini and a Moby for myself and I love the Moby for around the house, but she wants an easy on/easy off carrier. These are the features I'm looking for - does anyone have a suggestion for the right carrier?
-Easy on/easy off (no wrapping like the Moby)
-Baby can be upright facing in (this is how he is happiest at the moment - I'm guessing this rules out most slings)
-She should be able to use it for a while as he grows
-Should be able to do household chores, eat, etc. while wearing it (I find it awkward to sit while wearing the Beco and very difficult to eat without spilling my food on the top of it/my baby's head - Moby is much better, but again, she doesn't want to have to wrap it...)
-Ideally under $100 but I could try to find a used one if the perfect carrier is above that price range
Thanks in advance!
