And I'd love to see pics of any babies or toddlers in one. There weren't a lot of detailed pics on the website.

Show me your slings!

I don't have pictures of it because I sold my hug-a-bub last summer, but I used it with my ds until he was almost 2 years old. I think he was about 27 lbs when I stopped using it. I was also 6 months pregnant though so that could have contributed to my discomfort.

My 21 month old, 32 pound boy is too big for it. Have you looked at a Kozy carrier, mei tai, or a pack a baby?

I use mine with my 25 lb 16 month old, though I do find it easier to tie it in the "regular" wrap cross carry with the wrap on the inside (http://www.peppermint.com/wrapcrosscarry.htm), rather than the wrap on the outside way. The down side is that you don't see the cute pocket when you do it that way.

Here's a picture of my daughter and I last summer when she was about eight months old.
