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. smile.gif
