    Default What age did you stop baby-wearing?

    DH thinks DD is to old to wear now (10 months) but I think we have a while yet as she still loves it....! Why do I have to stop something that is working right?

    What age did you stop? What age is to old?

    I haven't stopped yet and DS is 17 months. He's only around 10.5kg's and I can still comfortably carry him in the ergo for a few hours. I think as long as you and bub are happy and comfortable keep going as long as you like!

    Ha DH !!!!!.....so I still have time. I think because she is 11.5 kg he thinks she's to heavy for me.
    It just makes life easier sometimes especially when popping in and out of the shops.

    Thanks ladies xx

    I wear the 20 month old I look after and I doubt he'll be stopping anytime soon.

    I stopped early last time. By about 6mo, but that was because I only had a crummy Baby Bjorn and it was killing me. This time I have a Hug-a-bub and an Ergo.

    Sorry to crash your thread but I'm curious - don't they get heavy?? My boy is pretty big (6.1kg at 6 weeks) and my back gets sore already so I can't imagine going for much longer. Maybe I need a better carrier lol.

    With my Baby Bjorn the longest I was able to wear a baby was around 8 months; this was DS3 who was a skinny minny, DS2 was more like 5 or 6 months.

    I have an Ergo this time, and intend to wear for as long as we both enjoy it. DD loves her pram, and I guess she will spend more time in it as she gets bigger, but there are many situations where the Ergo is just so convenient. We're going on a holiday in November when she'll be 14 months, and we don't want to take a stroller; the Ergo will be so much easier!

    If you have a carrier that distributes weight properly it isn't a problem. I wear T on my back in an Ergo and the weight is carried on my hips, not my shoulders, so it's a lot more comfortable, more comfortable than leaning forward to push a pram, actually.
