    So far in my baby wearing collection I have a 5.6 meter woven wrap http://www.shantybaby.net/woven-wraps---page-2.html and hand me down "sling' that kind of looks like this (not sure the brand) http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-RMcn6aAoJVo/TtCC3JjlVkI/AAAAAAAAAuE/ZAK5POFkNJg/s1600/sevenslings.jpg...

    *This thread will be shared on Mothering's Twitter and Facebook.* This week is International Babywearing Week, and in honor of that, I have a question! So, I have many carriers, a bit of a problem really. Most of the babywearing mamas I know have the same problem. I'm curious if you have...

    HOw comfortable do you all find the toddler hawk once the child is 30 lbs or more? And am I silly to think I can still carry 30 lb ds in a front carry? I used a babyhawk up until now and loved it. Ds is too big for it now. We had an ergo so I use it sometimes but I don't feel that supported in...

    I'm transitioning my 6 month old from Moby to ....yes, that's the question. DD was a ring-sling hip carry girl. She hated being on my back, and was content to watch everything I was doing, and I just put her behind my arm when I needed to do something and be sure she couldn't touch it. DS in a...

    I've gotten frustrated with the ergo. The body is WAY, WAY too short. I don't wear my 2yo any more, but when I did even with the straps tightened as tightly as they can go, if he was feeling ornery he could arch his back so far that the top of the fabric is at his butt and he's practically...

    My child mostly walks around, but I'd love to have a teeny folded carrier in my bag for those moments he needs to ride. Like when it starts raining and I need my hands free for the umbrella! Any recommendations? We currently have the lightest Ergo model, but even it has bulky padded...

    What should I do to keep the shoulder straps on my shoulders? It makes me feel a little nervous that they often slide off and baby will too... Should I make any adjustments? I notice that my back-strap is across the middle of my shoulder blades, whereas I have seen other mamas wear it across...

    My baby is so heavy! How do I give her the in arms time she needs when my back can't handle it? I use and ergo and put her on my back, but it's hard. Any suggestions?

    Hi there. I just started trying my Patapum Baby Carrier (a near twin to the Ergo, I'm told) with my 16-lb, 5-month-old DD. Since most of what I've seen online are raves about its comfort, I'm surprised that I don't find it very comfortable. I haven't put her in a back carry yet, but in the front...

    I've been using a moby wrap exclusively since my LO was 8lbs. Now LO is about 20 lbs. I'm finding my hips and back tire more quickly now, which I anticipated. I have read a lot about some carriers offering more support that prevents back strain, especially the more structure carries, like ergo...

    My 9yo daughter is forever carrying around her 17mo baby brother, even though I remind her she doesn't have to. She's requested her own carrier so she can occasionally wear him on her back (with me monitoring and limiting it so she doesn't overextend her growing body or fall and injure them...

    I have 2 pouches, a ring sling, a mei tai and a wrap. I like them all for different situations but there are also drawbacks to each one. What I need is a carrier that I can easily and discreetly nurse in hands free while grocery shopping. I can do that with my ring sling but my back starts to...

    I use my Ergo the most, but I've always wanted to try a Boba, and I love the colors. Just saw this: http://www.zulily.com/invite/ralford443/e/boba-082211.html?tid=referral_email Has anyone tried it? I was curious about the leg holds.

    I just did a consignment sale of all our plastic toys and now have some extra money (as well as a nicer home ) I am debating about getting an Ergo and if its really worth spending the money on. I currently have a Mei Tai I made (I think it cost 15- 20 for material) I used it for 6 months with...

    I have a 20 month old, and she loves to be worn on my back, but the part of her chubby thighs that sit on the seat get angry welts on them because her legs dangle. It bothers her and she signs and says owie after I take her out. Anyone experience this? Anything I can do to fix this? Is there a...

    I have a Moby and a Maya ring sling. My 7 week old pushes her head out but she doesn't have full head control yet. I end up holding her head with one hand which makes it impossible to do anything with two hands. If she is asleep she will lay against me. Am I wrapping her wrong? Is there a better...

    I found an organic ergo carrier on craigslist that is being sold for $55. The ad says that the carrier has been used quite a bit for 2 years, so I'm wondering if it would still be safe to use for another few years. How much wear and tear can an ergo get in 2 years, and at what point is it unsafe...

    I have an Ergo, DD has outgrown her K'Tan (she's 24 lbs and 16 mos). I am in the process of buying a Maya Wrap for her and I'd like a Mei Tai. What brands do you recommend? We love our Ergo, but I'd like some more options.
