Also ds hit 25 lbs at 9 months and is now 38lbs at 2.5 years, so I have found the structure, the padding, and the speed of the Ergo to be better for us.
If I had to pick only one it would definitely be a MT. It's nearly impossible for me to nurse in my ergo and not comfortable at all. (Ds is nearly 2 and TALL)
Hey Nena, I know you are creepen on me. Get a life.

I have to admit, though, I'm comparing wearing my 14+ lb 2 month old in the mai tai vs. my 30 lb toddler in the ergo... so the mei tai may be much less comfortable at 30 lbs, I have no idea. My newborn's not big enough for the ergo, yet, supposedly (without the infant insert, which seems like just *another* thing to carry around with me, so I'm not getting it), but I've been seriously considering trying him in the ergo anyway. He has pretty good head control and is pretty big, it might be with his legs tucked up under him...
ETA... It actually might be because the ergo's easier to adjust, so it could just be user error.

Wading slowly and nervously into this homeschooling thing.
Especially for larger babies/toddlers, I think the ergo is much more comfortable. The mei tais are usually prettier, though.

We have an ergo and my husband prefers it. I am short and small and I have a hard time getting the straps to fit well on my shoulders. I do love Bloo Kangaroo's structured carriers, though. I wear my 32 lbs. 2 year DS on my back all the time in the Kanga XT and he feels almost weightless.

loved our mei tai for when DD was a prewalker/early walker & didn't want constant up & down.
I prefer our Ergo now b/c it is faster in & out.
I like our mt for front & back carries
I like our Ergo only for back carries.

I love my Kozy (mei tai) for both my five month old (19 lbs) and 2 yr old (30 lbs). Next I would vote for my ring sling. Then my vote would go to my homemade stretchy wrap.
Hope you can try both to help you make a decision.
