    Hi there, I wondered if anybody had any recommendations on a baby carrier for a 6 month old? I have used a sling in the past but I feel he's too heavy now and it's no good for my back X

    There are so many! There is a couple of sling library's on line slingsandthings and sling heaven, perhaps try a few before buying. Or see if you have a local sling library they will have loads to try. I personally don't like carriers (ssc) and prefer to wrap but if I had to chose any I'd go with a sleep nico.

    We used a Boba 3G which was great.... but there are loads of other types of soft carriers. Ergo is one I see coming up a lot. I was always advised to avoid the BjornBaby and other front facing 'crotch danglers' though, due to possible contribution to hip problems.

    I've recently hired a Tula and love it! So comfy and easy to use and they come in such lovely patterns. They seem to keep their value too as second hand they are the same sort of price as brand new.x

    Yeah I did like the look of the Tula but it's just so pricey, I'll just need to go for it I think, I'm sure it'll be worth it especially with the summer coming. Thanks girls X
