if I already have (and like) the Ergo? Or would it be overkill?
The Ergo is great but my son is 2.5 mos old, just shy of 10 lbs and I find that the Ergo can be a bit bulky at times for me already when i carry him (front only of course, w/ and w/o insert). My husband loves it and my son naps in it w/o fail. But I was thinking the Piccolo might be nice for front-carrying with my son facing out in the future, which the ergo doesnt do. I also read somewhere that it is great for small-boned people b/c the straps are narrower. My shoulders are non-existant so the Ergo's straps can be slightly uncomfortable at times.
Anyway, I already have a sleepy wrap, a Maya ring sling, and the ergo so Im not sure if i need another carrier or if Im just slightly obsessed...so I thought Id ask what you all think about the Piccolo for me.
However, if you want to do FF carries, do get it, as it's the only (or one of the only) ergonomically correct ways to do that carry.

The Ergo offers more back support though and with a bigger babe (DS is now 14 months) I prefer it. I'm hanging onto my Pikkolo for the next squishy though.
