I wear my 22 month old, 30 lb DD in my Maya Wrap sling on the odd occaison. Mostly if I take her to the grocery store and she falls asleep on the way there. I don't want to wake her, and she can't sit in a shopping cart asleep, so I put her in the Maya. I either hip carry or a front carry (basically the hip carry but with her more towards my front). It isn't something I would do for long periods of time, but it does allow me to be hands-free while shopping, and DD gets a good nap! Oh, and I can wear her rather comfortably on my back for short periods of time, too. I think the short periods are due more to me being out of "sling shape" though. DD walks mostly everywhere now, so I just don't use it much anymore.
