SO, my long winded question is this: when is it considered too old to start babywearing? should I just forget it at this point? DD is 16 months, weighs 19 lbs, and is 29 inches. (very tiny baby girl). Is there one carrier that is better than others for "toddlers"? I had been looking at the babyhawks online last week. They seem a little pricey to me though, and I'm just not sure if it would be worth investing in at this point if she only gets 2 or 3 more months use out of it? She is not walking yet- and her physical therapist says it could very well be a while until she does walk. (She just started to learn how to crawl in January) but at the same time I don't want to inhibit her from being on the ground, exploring and being curious and I worry that babywearing may do so.
any thoughts/suggestions are appreciated.
There is even a Toddler slinging smiley: :
Also, my dd who just turned 3 still asks to be carried in an SSC. She's also petite, about 27 pounds, and I just love having snuggles with her in a carrier. So at 16 months I think you most likely will get at least a year out of a carrier, and possibly more. I say go for it!
