The Ergo isn't cheap, but it is totally worth the investment! We use ours daily. DH uses it several times a week with her, too. It is extremely easy to use in the front, back and hip positions. It is comfortable, I don't get sore, and DD enjoys being in it. I also love that I can nurse in it. I use it around the house, while shopping, taking walks, at festivals, and so on. It's the only carrier I use now.
