Ok, Im kinda new to carriers. With my first two, I pretty much just carried them "in arms" 24/7 but with a five mo old and a two year old, I really NEED something that lets me get my hands free and still carry him.
He weighs 21lbs and is 28inches long so I have not been able to adjust him comfortably in my maya wrap. I also have a snuggli which works but is a lot of work with straps getting him in and out of plus even though my hands are free, I dont feel like I can really do much, I cant bend or lean over or lift things. Is there a carrier which would let me or should I just not do those things while wearing him? I really wanted to clean out/organize the babies closets this weekend, but didnt feel secure bending and lifting while wearing the snuggli.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! THanks!
