Ok can anyone recommend a soft pack carrier other then the Ergo?? I am not a fan and I am looking for one where the straps cross in the back.

If you're looking for a front carrier that crosses in the back, many people recommend the Sutemi. http://sutemigear.com/ The only thing is when you switch to a back carry, the straps will be crossed in the front, too.

The Ergo is mostly liked for the back carry. It works for a front carry, but it's not the most comfortable.

The Sutemi was already mentioned. There is also the Patapum.

Also consider the following:
Portacara, Jackpack, Loveseat buckle mei tai and Tentoes Click.
FWIUS, Angelpack will be coming out with a buckle mei tai as well.
The Portacara can cross in the back and the others can be custom made to suit your needs.

I hope you are looking into the Sutemi. I really loved it for the front carries but switched to the ERGO for back carries.

Mei Tai's are great!

I know the Sutemi was already mentioned twice, but nobody mentioned that it can also be used as a hip carrier (so can mei tais).

Ergo's cannot. I believe that the Patapums can be???

Just something to look at when comparing.

I don't actually have one of these but it looks just like what you might want... less strappy than an ABC and not quite an Ergo. WAHM made as well.

If you aren't familiar with the tying, the tentoes click is very user-friendly!
