I have way too many baby carriers.
We started with a sling when Aiven was an infant. Alex used it more than me.
Then we moved up to the BabyBjorn carrier. We love this one as Aiven can face outward and see the world. However, he will be outgrowing it in the next couple of weeks.
I have a Moby. When I have the patience, and I can get it just right, I love it. But truthfully, I have only used it a handful of times and not once in the past 3 months.
We also have the Ergobaby carrier. We carried Aiven in this all over Argentina as it had good back support and we were wearing him for extended periods of time. It also has a hood which we found helpful in putting him to sleep. And, it is easy to sit down with him in it. The problem with the Ergo is that Aiven cannot face outwards, only inwards toward me. I cannot conceive carrying him on my back like the pictures on the website display. I would go bald from Aiven pulling chunks of my hair out back there.
I just bought -- and returned -- the new BabyBjorn Comfort Carrier. I really liked this carrier. It had better back support then the original BabyBjorn carrier I have, similar to the Ergo, but Aiven could face out in it. Plus, the arm straps were much more comfortable than either of the previous carriers. The problem is that the weight limit for him to face outwards is 26 pounds. Aiven already weighs 20 pounds. So, I might get 6 months out of this carrier before exhausting its usefulness. Oh, and it was over $100.
I keep doing research to try and find a carrier that meets all of my needs. I have not found a solution yet. So, I guess I will keep the BabyBjorn he is about to outgrow for a sibling we hope to have for him one day and start using the Ergo more regularly…and knowing my son, who is outgrowing everything at a pace I could never have anticipated, he will probably outgrow carriers altogether before I find a solution.
