I think the waist belt helps distribute weight...
I have a long, 26 lb 15 mo- I love using a hip carrier w/ him...
I love slings also, but he can wiggle out of them pretty well, and doesn't seem to do this in the hip carrier. Actually he rests his head on my shoulder- it's so sweet!
I find that w/ slings and the pouch style slings (maya and kangaroo korner) that w/ an older/heavier child they pull on my shoulder in an uncomfortable way... I don't get that w/ the hip carriers.
