i think i am just going to splurge and buy a mei tei for carrying baby on back. she loves the moby as do i, but for the front carrys. would love to strap her on back once in a while and can't seem to feel safe and comfy with it tied on back. anyhow, i went through the reviews and i think the kozy and babyhawk stood out. can you all give any good and/or bad opinions on either??? which is comfier? sturdier?

Totally your preference. I know lots of people who LOVE Babyhawks, but I tried one and it just wasn't that great for me. I think the body is shorter? Not sure, only tried it for a few minutes in the store. But I have a Maya Tie, which is, in its body, much more like a Kozy, and we love that. But a little baby would be swimming in all that fabric!<br><br>
Really, I think they're both great mei tais, and you'll probably love whichever you get. But for "best", you'd really have to try them both!

i love my babyhawk but for a younger babe, you may want to get one that has an adjustable bottom so their legs aren't spread so far apart.

well, she's 8 months so she's not really tiny. she's very wiggly which is why i want more stability than the moby gives. anyhow- where would i try one on? i don't know anyone around here who has one and no stores sell them!

Ask around in Finding Your Tribe. Head to a LLL meeting and see if anyone there has one. Find out if there's a babywearing group near you. If all else fails, order one, and you'll likely love it, but if not, you can send it back or sell it or trade it for a different one.

i have a BH and kozies. my fav is the first kozy i got. the 2nd one i got with longer straps on purpose thinking for back carries they'd be better but it's just too much fabric and i/ds don't have the patience...my dh is more comfortable int he bh so that's what he wears...unless he's wearing the ergo <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
