FTM- best baby carrier for back support?

Hi. Can you ladies recommend a good baby carrier that offers the best back support? My DH has back problems and has had surgery so I want one that will make him comfortable when he wears it. 

Thanks!

  • Depends on how steep a learning curve he's willing to assume. Wraps are generally recommended for people with back problems but I know a lot of men don't like wrapping. So in that case I'd say a SSC - beco and ergo are favorites amongst dads. I've also seen a few with kinderpacks but those are sized so you'd need one in infancy, one for toddlerhood and one for preschool.

  • I have back problems and have found my Becco Butterfly II to work really well.  I have also enjoyed wrapping but have only gotten a front carry to work.  Having to bend over to back wrap really causes my back to hurt.  I am sure that once I got good at it, I wouldn't have to bend over as long and it would be better.

    They're both great posts!!!  I had to tease him about it a bit when I saw him at our October walk.  What does he mean that she doesn't need all those carriers?!?
