My 30-something pound 3.5 year old has recently showed renewed interest in being worn. We have a Boba that we hadn't used in ages, and he really enjoyed being carried around on my back but he is way too big for it - in width, the height is still okay. It also just isn't comfortable to carry him in it, but I'm not sure if it's because the carrier isn't meant for it or just that he's so much heavier now.
We're also going to San Francisco in a couple of months and I don't want to bring a stroller (I think I hate strollers more than he does) but I know he won't keep up with all the walking.
Anyhow, I was looking at Tula's, and I'm torn between getting the toddler size and getting the regular size with the extensions for extra width at the bottom. Since it seems like that's the only place that the Boba is too small, I was leaning toward the extensions. Plus I would like to sell my Boba and have this be a replacement, rather than an addition. We are TTC so I'd use it with another baby as well, and I don't think the toddler size can be used under 18mo.
BUT if the toddler size is considerably more comfortable for the wearer, then I would go that way. Does anyone have any experience with both? I know a few people who love their toddler Tulas, but haven' theard from anyone who has put a toddler in the regular size with extensions.
