My older daughter was completely unvaxxed until I had a change of heart when she was 2.5 (now she's 3).  My 7 month old is on a delayed schedule--she got her first vax at 3 months.

Well, why wouldn't you consider just going ahead and getting MMR while nursing?  I would much rather get MMR while nursing than wean my baby or delay my ideal child spacing.

Yeah, the Ergo has a really short body compared to most soft structured carriers, so it's not the best for toddlers.  DH has a Boba that he LOVES for our 30 lb 2.5 year old.  It goes almost all the...
