My second DD has always been a big baby and was an early walker so I got out of the habit of wearing her. However, with her and my oldest running around I don't feel safe in public anymore. She's 24+ lbs, average height and is very physical. Any recommendations? I have a ring sling, a moby and a mama made mei tai. I would love to spend the money on something nice but don't know that it's really in the budget. And if she's the last baby, I don't know how much use it would get. Also, how would you go about getting her back in the habit? There have been many fits thrown...
I would vote for a Kinderpack. They are pricey, but they are great for carrying heavier babies and children. Resale on such carriers seems to be pretty good, too. There's a babywearing swap group on FB that might have something you'd like. I purchased a wrap from the group and was pleased. There's feedback for buyers and sellers. Has something like 10,000+ members. As far as getting back into babywearing, it may take some struggles at the start (and help from another adult if she stiffens up), but I bet she'll come to love it again.
