The only carrier my dd likes is a Baby Bjorn but unfortunately, its been uncomfortable for me (straps dig in). Does anyone know a good carrier where babies face front? I've tried a sling and a mei tai with no luck. Can babies face front in the Ergo carrier? thanks!

They can't face front in an Ergo, because Ergos and Sutemis are designed to allow baby to be in a seated position, rather than a hanging position, like with the Bjorn. The only thing I can think of is the Baby Trekker. www.babytrekker.com

Just wondering if you've tried a stretchy-type wrap. When the Bjorn started getting uncomfortable for me (quite early on...I was annoyed because it was so expensive!) I switched to a Moby Wrap, which is incredibly comfy and versatile. I still use it occasionally with DD, who is now 17 mos/ 26 lbs. It was a good investment. BTW, I also have an Ergo, which I love, love, love.

A wrap would work, either stretchy or non-stretchy. Or two stretchy slings or pouches crossed to simulate a wrap.
