has anybody used both? I know that not all new models are improvements...I'd like some advice on which one to buy! (15 mo. old, about 23 pounder)

How many versions of the Ergo has there been? I'm only aware of 1. There is a new version due out the middle of June, but I don't think its available yet, and so no reviews so far.

I'm holding out for the new version though, even though I've been told that its a little bit more expensive (ie. $5 more).
I'm aware of 3 different generations of Ergo. I have the last two and had the first at one point. The first had shoulder straps that had buckles so you could wear it in the hip carry and had a smaller waist buckle. The second doesn't have buckles on the shoulder straps so you can't wear it in the hip carry and has a bigger waist buckle. The third generation has a safety/comfort belt which adds padding to go under the black webbing part. If you are smaller waisted, I think the safety/comfort belt just adds bulk and gets in the way. However, my husband does prefer it because it prevents the black webbing from digging in.

There is going to be a newer style coming out in June.

I've only used the one with the padded waist strap. I'm large--5'6" 250#, and I find the extra waist strap a nusiance. It just bunches up and gets in the way. I've thought about removing it but haven't. Still, I love the Ergo and my little guy (now 13 months and 25+ pounds) lives in it.
