This was taken from the Ergo website:

"We say you can carry up to 60 pounds in The ERGO, but really the carrier will accommodate you as long as you and your baby would like to carry and be carried. One of our distributor's 5 year old son begs to be carried in The ERGO. We have also sold the carrier to many people whose child is already 3 years old when they bought it."

No, he's not too heavy. But I can't carry my 30 pounder in it. It puts too much pressure in the wrong areas for me since ds hit about 25 pounds. But I am sure it is safe, all you can do is try.

My little girl is about 25 pounds, and I can carry her for hours with no problems. I think my own stregnth will run out before the Ergo does. 60 lbs! :
