    Morning ladies

    Can anyone recommend a good back carrier?

    I don't want a sling I want a good sturdy carrier.

    I've seen the littlelife ranger which looks good, it's for long walks in the country and really I don't want to spend over £100.

    I can't recommend as haven't got one but please look at leg positioning when you choose one. Depending on the age of your baby, the younger they are the more important it is to have a carrier that supports more than just the groin area. If it is just the groin that is supported and the legs hang down for long periods of time then it can damage the developing hips. If possible you want a carrier that supports the legs closer to the knee joint.

    E.g. - http://reviewbabycarriers.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/hip-dysplasia-carriers1.jpg

    Hope that helps when you are having a look around. X

    Thank you, I have read up on that kind of thing. I was given a babybjorn but don't like it for that reason.

    I just want a good sturdy back carrier for when oh and I go for walk and I'm hoping to get one that lasts until she's 3ish

    I've got one of the huge back carriers, looks like a rucksack (I think it might be a littlelife one) I bought it second hand off eBay. To be honest I've used it once it was just too big.

    There's a few sling/carrier selling groups on fb that often have back carriers listed.

    I have an Ergo and an Infantino wrap and tie. Both are great and still used with my 14 month old

    Honestly I would go for a SSC (Soft Structured Carrier) over a backpack style one.

    Something like this - http://www.lovetobenatural.co.uk/baby-carriers/buckle-carriers/tula-baby-carrier.html They can be worn on the back as well and fasten with buckles. I really think you'll find it a lot comfier than one like the Littlelife.

    Also consider http://www.lovetobenatural.co.uk/baby-carriers/buckle-carriers/jpmbb-physiocarrier.html

    & http://www.lovetobenatural.co.uk/baby-carriers/buckle-carriers/fidella-fusion.html etc

    Thanks for the response tbh it's really more the carrier type I want. I think I'll just take my oh shopping with me this week and try some out
