Has anyone tried this carrier? how is it for older children? the padding looks good to me and the baby looks safe. But I'd like to know how it went with someone who used it.
It's SO easy to use for back carries, which is why we got it. DH didn't have a lot of confidence or patience to learn, and this was great - after three quick tries with me spotting, he could do it totally alone.
He says it's still comfy now at 20 months (dd is small though, only 19 pounds), and others at TBW give it rave reviews for comfort.

I use mine all the time (baby is 5 months old). It is extremely comfortable (and pretty!)and I can wear it for hours... often I almost "forget" I'm wearing it because it's just so comfy. I used pouches and ring slings before but always had problems with my shoulders/ neck and couldn't wear them for too long. The Calyx is PERFECT.
this time i decided to keep things simple so i sprung for a new calyx after reading all the great reviews and aside from a new GM bali strech wrap, it was the only carrier i bought for the new baby and at this point, it's the only one i've kept. i have yet to test it out with my 34 pound toddler but i'm sure it's comfortable enough. i also have back and hip problems and wouldn't wear him at this point, though i was wearing him when he was 30 lbs and 2 years old and i suspect i'll carry the new baby that long, too - and in the calyx, it won't be a chore!
