Awwww... we all have days like that. It sounds like you might need more practice. And I would work on getting him used to facing in on your front. If he's used to it, then he won't fuss so much...

Stretchy wraps are very nice for newborns. If you are wanting a buckle carrier, I would consider a Connecta or Beco Butterfly. Either one would last you a long time and would do back carries when...

I love wrapping! Once you get over the learning curve, it's very comfy.

It depends on whether we are home or not. My baby is almost 2yrs old and isn't worn much at home. But he's worn most of the time when we're out in public.

With her being that heavy, I would go for a mei tai, soft structured carrier, or a pre tied woven wrap. Those are all very fast to take on and off. I would want a 2 shouldered carrier, unless I was...

If you keep trying, she will eventually learn to like facing in. But she's at a stage that is hard for many babies. There are some that just insist on facing out for a while.

Yes, a woven wrap is one that doesn't stretch lengthwise. Major brands include BB Slen, Vatanai, Girasol, Didymos, Hoppediz, and Storchenwiege.

Actually a high back carry would let her see more than she could when on your front facing in.

It's very difficult to get a stretchy wrap tight enough to be secure for a back carry. It's possible... but I wouldn't chance it. I would get a mei tai or woven wrap for back carries for a baby that...

Hmmm.... I would get a soft structured carrier and encourage him to learn to like back carries. Front carries with a 30lber will probably be hard on you. A SSC can be taken on and off quickly. Good...

If you want to make the carrier a bit shorter, you can roll the bottom once or twice before you put it on. That would probably help the straps in the face issue.

I wouldn't worry too much about...

Hotslings is a nice pouch, but if it doesn't fit right, it can be awful. And Snugglis tend to be uncomfy for mom. Personally I would sell those two carriers and get an unpadded ring sling like a...
