I was wondering typically how long it is possible to continue babywearing? My 11 month old is now 22lbs and now that spring is coming I want to get back out and BW! I have a sling which I love for wandering around the garden but she's too big and strong for me to be able to use it on a real trip out. I also have a knock-off Beco Butterfly but it just isn't working for me. I tried her in it this morning but I have lots of the fabric padded straps in the front bunched up and she seems either squashed into me or too far away. Waist straps don't fit very well either.
I would love to be able to carry her in a back carry. We have an strawberry vending machine in our street and it's the perfect short walk but getting the stroller out is such a hassle . I don't have any groups where you can try carriers out. I have heard good things about Ergo but are they any good for soon to be toddlers? I would also like to find one second hand (budget is a bit tight) but finding that kind of thing second hand here is like striking oil!
