I'm 5'1 and petite. I've tried maany carriers and the one that worked the best, hands-down, head and shoulders above the rest was the Beco Gemini. Ergo did not work. Yet, I began using carriers at 4 mos. not 1 yr so maybe ergo?
Go to your local retailer that carries them and try them on before you buy?
I have an unbelievably short torso! Funny you should say that, because that is exactly what I was thinking. Kelty backpack carriers are too big as well. Even with the straps as tight as they go I could still fit 2 pillows under the shoulder straps...lol.
Any other shorties have ideas for backpack hiking carriers? I need suggestions because hiking season is quickly approaching
i really liked the Tiny Birds wrap,parents of Inventions wrap, the HUGS selendang (best for hot weather), and the Hoppediz Bondolino (SSC/Mei tai). The only drawback with all except the selendang was the hot factor. Too hot to wear in summer. I wish I had tried the BabyHawk.
