    Default Recommend me a baby carrier

    so with my first 2 little's i had the worlds most uncomfortable baby carrier, seriously it was awful, but silly me never got a new one, anyway its now in the bin thank goodness.
    anyway i want a good new/second hand one, that i can use from birth till when hopefully this baby grows out of the colic and reflux i just know it will get.
    im looking into things early so i can get everything i need to get over and done with so its not a mad rush. so please recommend me some or link me to websites

    I would recommend an Ergo or Manducca carrier. If you search threads there is alot on these carriers.

    We're loving our ergo- it has the newborn insert so can be used from birth

    I really don't think you can go past a plain ol' sling?!

    They're cheap, Machine washable & dry quickly, so easy to adjust, so quick and easy to get bub in and out, fold up small for traveling/squashing in nappy bag, took me all of 2 and a bit days to get the hang of positioning DD correctly & I carried her in it till she was 14 KG and decided to walk every where.

    Brought it 2nd hand for $10, sold it for $10. How can you go wrong?

    I have a Baby Bjorn and while my DH likes it, I find it really uncomfortable even when my DD was younger (now 10.5 months). I have switched to an Ergo and love it! So comfy for both me and bub! If I am lucky enough to have anther baby I think I will also get a ring sling for the newborn stage.

    Love my Manduca carrier! So comfortable to wear and DS always falls asleep in it. Comes with the newborn insert so you can use straight away.
