Our LO does not yet have good head support / neck strength, wiggles a lot and requires 2 hands to carry safely. We have a couple flights of stairs to contend with and we do not really want to carry him up and down, but prefer to use a carrier, such as our infant car seat. The issue is that the infant car seat is kind of bulky / cumbersome, not to mention all the straps. I am not really comfortable with using a Moses basket, I think most of them are marketed with instructions that they are not to be used to carry baby up and down stairs. I am wondering if there is a safe, sturdy basket made from some sort of canvas material or something that can be used for this purpose? Otherwise, does anyone recommend a wearable carrier that would be simple to get on and off for doing stairs? I was just looking at the Joovy babasling, which might work.
