Hi! I am usually over on the diapering board, but I need some help! DS is almost 7 months, weighs nearly 20 pounds and is about 28 in. tall. I am short (5'2") with a short waist and back poblems. I need suggestions for a comfortable carrier. I could not figure out the maya and I have tried an Ergo, but it didn't feel right either. I have a Kangaroo Korner Adjustable Cotton Pouch that I've been wearing him in since his first week...it still works ok, but it starts hurting my neck after awhile. I don't have tons of $$ to try things out either. I love wearing my boy, but he's nearly half as tall as me already!! I know someone has the answer...

I know you said you tried an Ergo but a carrier over both shoulders sounds like the best bet to alleviate the back pain. I'd say a www.Kozycarrier.com or a wrap carrier like Ellaroo. If you can sew there are lots of ABC (Asian Baby Carrier like the Kozy carrier) patterns on line for free like at www.sleepingbaby.net/jan/index.html
You can also get 4-5 yards of fabric and try to make a wrap to see if you like that before buying, there are lots of tying/wrapping directions out there too but the sites escape me at the moment.
good luck

I totally agree with Ann! A wrap or an Asian-style baby carrier sounds like the perfect thing for you.

Excellent wrap tying directions can be found at Peppermint.com.
