Inexpensive solutions for preschooler?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Any veteran baby wearer have suggestions for an inexpensive, probably homemade carrying solution for a preschooler? My DD is no longer comfy in the Ergo, and I want something I can pack with us for hikes.

Yes, it's all boob-powered.  My husband tried this carry and it didn't work for him.  He's not really good at tying tightly, though, so that might be the problem.
