A wrap would be a good thing - a woven one will last you the longest. I'd check out Storchenwiege or Didymos - they're both like the Rolls Royces of the BBW world.<br><br>
Or you could look at a ring sling. There are lots of different options out there.

A GypsyMama Bali Baby Stretch is a gorgeous, relatively inexpensive wrap that makes wrapping really easy to learn. It's a lot less thick than a German woven wrap, so better for summer, but stretchier than an Ellaroo so easier to avoid pressure points. The Isis, Cybele, and Aphrodite are all stunning in person.

I second the idea of a wrap. The learning curve is a little steeper, but nothing beats it for comfort and versatility, especially as your baby starts getting bigger. The German wraps aren't cheap, so maybe if you could try a friend's first to make sure you like it?

A nice woven wrap - like a Didymos for example <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br>
They cost a lot, but do have a fantastic resale value too!

How about a ring sling? I loved my silk Zolo and my Oopa!

I completely disagree with this. Ring slings are great for nursing and quick ups and downs. And if your muscles are built up, a one-shouldered carrier can be great for long carries.<br><br>
That being said, I used the HECK out of my Storchenweige (a wonderful wrap-around carrier - great for back carries) when my son was more of a baby. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I got it from <a href="http://www.cottoncradles.com" target="_blank">http://www.cottoncradles.com</a>
