    Ok great I think DS was about 2 months - checked the box and it recommends from 3.5kg - I will definately be needing to babywear asap so I can chase DS around.

    I used mine straightaway too but had to by another carrier within a couple of months as it didn't have enough support for my back.

    It was really handy for those first few weeks though!

    I used mine with DS from when he was about 1-2 weeks old. He wasn't a huge baby, but he fit very comfortably in it. Mind you, it wasn't a baby bjorn.

    Why? A 10 month old would be too heavy.

    They're not supposed to be good for baby's hips.. I used an ergo with an infant insert, which is supposed to be better or slings are also a good option :-)

    They don't keep babies hips in an optimal position, basically they dangle baby by the crotch rather than a seated position which supports the hip joints.

    Eta think about how you carry a baby, you don't do it by the crotch you carry baby with their legs froggied and their bum lower than their knees (think about how you would carry a baby on your hip) this is a natural position for bub to be in. A carrier should mimic that.
