Hi!

 

I've have a 7-month-old who I haven't been carrying in a carrier due to severe shoulder/neck issues (car accidents, neck operation, etc.)  My husband does carry her in a Baby Bjorn. 

 

Lately, I've been feeling like maybe I could give carrying her a try. She's easier to carry in general as she's gotten older and my neck/shoulder issues have been a bit better than usual.  

 

Which carriers would you suggest trying? I need one that distributes the baby's weight as much as possible away from my upper body. I know the Baby Bjorn doesn't work for me.

 

Thanks for all of your thoughts! I would really really love to use a baby carrier!

Annie

I have neck and shoulder issues as well and found that the Ergo worked pretty well for me, because the baby's weight is mainly distributed to your hips, like a frame backpack.

How about the Action Baby carrier? It has a strap that can be criss-crossed so baby's weight is evenly spread on the back plus it has a hip belt for added support. I had a backache before(on my first carrier) but when I've used the ABC there is no more backache even for after a long hours of BWing.ROTFLMAO.gif

 

What is the weight of your baby? Their toddler carrier, has a weight limit of 15-45lbs, is wider and support extends to the kness which might be suitable for your baby. Hope this helps!joy.gif


Living is great but being a MOM is even better
