I am always bonking him in the head when I sweep...
Sounds like a front carry? Back carries are so much easier for cleaning! Though trying to hold a dustpan with one hand and use the broom with the other has endangered my daughter's head even in a back carry . . .
Some of my favorite things to do while babywearing (not so much now she's almost 3!): shopping, nursing, eating (at a restaurant), going for walks.
I have an ERGO reversable (goes both ways- front and back).
This brings me to another question.
Is it even possible for me to put it on backwards unassisted? My husband works during the day. How can I put it on backwards by myself?
If this isn't answered here, that's fine. I'm going to start a thread about this issue anyhow, maybe.

Yep it's super easy to put baby in the ergo in the back carry. there are directions on the ergo website. You can put the carrier on your hip then rotate the carrier and baby, or you can just bend over and put the baby on your back. both take a day or 2 of practice.
Seriously, though, the Ergo ROCKS! I just got done cleaning the kitchen with dd (14 m) in it. I washed dishes, swept, and cleaned the stove. Easy as pie!
I really think I have him in correctly, he just gets very upset when I try to do any of those things while wearing him.
