I have my eye on these... but worry they would hurt my shoulders after awhile. I have an Ergo now, and feel like it puts strain on my shoulders, even with having the chest buckle.

I was just wondering...

the only time i notice it putting strain on me is when i use the high back position, but it's because i tie it too tightly around my rib cage and can't breath right LOL. so it's all my fault. i was more uncomfortable in the ergo than in the kozy.

my freehand mei tai will hurt my shoulders if i use it in a rucksack position--which was the position i was really hoping to use b/c once straps start crossing over my chest...well...things begin to look all pointy and scary!

happily, i can cross this carrier over my chest. the straps are actually wide enough that they kind of cover/smoosh my "girls" rather than "lifting and separating" them. but it is a good smoosh--not painful. just nice and secure.

my shoulders were still a teensy bit strained the first few times, but one's body seems to get used to it.

the MOST comfortable carrier, IMO, is a podegi, since there needn't be any shoulder involvement. now, if only i could get one of my own!
