    Baby carrier

    Advertisements
    I want to get something to wear my baby, but I am not sure where to start.
    I need something that is going to fit over my big ole boobies, and be easy to use. I am not a huge fan of the wraps, as I can never figure them out lol
    I need something fairly inexpensive, I dont want to spend tons of money on something I can only use for a short time

    Any suggestions?

    I had an Ergo. I liked it but it's expensive. But it does go up to like 40lbs and I used it with a 2 year old.

    Ergo, absolutely. Super comfortable, Aubs loves it, DH and I can switch back and forth wearing it with four momentary adjustments. Absolutely the best IMO.

    Whatever you get just make sure that the carrier allows them to be in a hip healthy position. Legs extended down is bad and can cause dysplasia in infants. You want their knees to be higher than their bum, like a little frog.

    I like the infantino "wrap" (I think it's called sash) one if you don't want an actual wrap. It's kind of a hybrid.

    But I prefer my Moby

    On a budget look on etsy for a mei tai. You so have to wrap it but it's less wrapping then a moby.

    I am a ring sling gal. I am also big boobed and was able to wear the RS comfortably. You can also hip carry, front carry, and back carry with a RS. They are adjustable on the top and the bottom of the sling so yo get the perfect fit. No wrapping or buckling involved. they are mostly made from cotton so they breathe and you dont get hot. Kaia is 35 lbs. and can still sit in my RS even with my bad back.

    Which ring sling would you suggest? I have wrap, but I'm looking for something easy to run into the grocery store, or put on quickly when needed. I am big chested, but about size 6 pre-pregnancy if that matters.
