    Yep, bad back, new baby, wraps are awesome.

    For carriers, I'm starting to see from other people that there is much better than ergo out there too though. At the moment I'm waiting to pick up a manduca from the post office to use for my 13kilo toddler cause the hugabub is really front only carry.

    I loved the stretch for newborn, but would consider a woven wrap once they get a little bigger.

    I have a hug a bub and couldn't reccomend it enough my daughter lived in it for several months she found it very soothing and she had easy access to boobies! The quality is very good and my back felt very supported. Love it. However, it was a gift so I didn't have to pay for it. If baby number 3 is a boy he will be cruising around in a pink one

    I brought a second hand hug-a-bub on ebay for $50. DD3 lived in it for the first 6 months of her life, it was fantastic! It held her nice and close, supported her head well so I could move and bend without having to support her as well.

    A friend made herself one with some material from spotlight, but it was only good for when her baby was quite little, by about 4 months it tended to sag a bit, maybe it was the type of material. If you do make your own get good quality knit material. My friends looked fine and worked as well as mine did when bubs was little.

    From about 6 - 7 months we moved into the ergo which I also loved and used with her until she was 3 years old. I don't like the ergo for tiny babies, I don't find it supportive enough.

    Default I just want to confirm that this is correct! Hug a bub

    Was just at spotlight - and for the $14 a metre it will cost me to purchase decent stretch jersey I would rather just buy the hugabub for the advertised $99, even though I would have gotten 3 from the material.

    There's quite a few gently used wraps on eBay for those interested.

    I bought one from eBay for $45. More expensive than buying material and making it myself probably but oh well still happy to get it cheaper than new.

    Plan to switch to an ergo after 4 months or so
