    Hi!

    I am thinking of getting a baby carrier and sick if dragging out the pram when just going for a walk to the park at the end of my road.

    Chloe is 7 months old now and last week weightedjust over 15lbs so want one thats going to last (so at least 1 year if not longer) but don't want to spend silly money......any recommendations? Xx

    I cant recommend my connecta enough, you can get preloved for 40-50 quid. Ergo is great but more expensive. You can also go with mei tai but i prefer full buckle.
    Dont go with a high street carrier as most of them dont position hips right(knees should be above bottom)

    I have ergos and i love he design. Really well made and man friendly too, although i get on better with the carrier than my OH. I think having boobs helps, lol! In fact i managed to breastfeed in mine the other day, well impressed ;)
    However, i havent been able to use them much because its so hot in Madrid and we just end up sweaty. I wish i hadnt have brought the newborn inserts either, they were definately too hot, and the babies dont need them now.

    Nikki, there is a solarweave connecta esp for hot weather to keep everyone cool, check it out. They post worldwide too xxx
    Ergos are good but quite thick material

    I got one from mothercare, and i have only used it once. She loved it, but my back was in agony after just a short walk.

    next time I would defo try and borrow a more expensive one and try it out to see if its just my back or if a decent carrier makes a difference. x

    Sling library is definitely the way to go, different things suit different people depending on what you want.

    Knopk is right though about not going for a high street one - they don't hold baby in the correct position, and they become uncomfy a LOT quicker!!

    We have a connecta - which has buckles. And I have a couple of wraps. The connecta is DH's cos he HATES the woven wraps, but he liked the moby.

    Def test a few out to see what suits you.
