Hi what kind do you use and why do you love it?
I have a Baby Bjorn active sport carrier (the mesh one) and also an Ergo... BB is good for facing outwards in front of you.. and the Ergo is great when they outgrow weight limit of BB.. b/c you can put them on your back... didn't get too much use b/c I became pregnant so soon after getting it.. but it was great for our cross country trip with a then 9 month old.. she slept on me the whole time... both are super comfy. I'm looking forward to being able to have one of us hold our toddler on our back in the Ergo, while our newborn can be held in the BB.
Sleepy Wrap for comfort, Hava Sling for ease and speed, Ergo for both. I use the Ergo more than the others, but the Sleepy Wrap is my favorite for cool weather cuddle and carry. Ergo and Sleepy Wrap are wonderful for all day wear. The sling is the coolest (lightweight) when it's hot, but it's not as comfy if I'm carrying all day long. I have a use for all of them and love them all.
I loved my hotsling for when they were newborns and for the hip carry when they got big (like, 12 months+).
I loved the mai tai for the in-between period- comfy & cute!
I like the Moby for the newborn stage. It's great for carrying an itty bitty baby (while also caring for a toddler). I also like the Ergo. It's quick and easy. Plus it's better on your baby's joints and your back than the Bjorn (which I also have and do not recommend).
DH has a metal frame backpack carrier that he uses with 18 month old DS. He loves it.
