This is why very few people use carriers like the baby bjorn past the newborn stage.

    However you will find with the carriers I have listed that you can hip carry with them, which allows your baby to see where you are walking (if they want to) and still carry them comfortably for everyone. Otherwise a lot of babywearers pop their babies on their backs so they can see over your shoulder No matter what you choose my advice is to find someone who has one and give it a try with a child in it (a borrowed one even)

    Oh I didnt know you can hip carry with a mei tei hoe do we do this? I have one but wasnt going to use it during summer because I thought it would be too hot

    Default Re: Which ergo baby carrier?

    I am wondering same thing. I live in Darwin which is just hot all the time. I have an original but was thinking to get the ergo peforamance S its just too hit and this bub will need to b carried on me a lot more. My original is super comfy though. I'm not sure the other ones would b as comfy after comparing them all in the shop. The peforamance is meant to b the coolest.

    Seriously. There's a meet in mile end tomorrow, and then a meet near Marion on the 9th, I think?
    Come along. We're all nice, and it's soooo much easier to impart knowledge face to face, while holding these carriers.

    And also, I agree with the previous poster! Nikki from nurture nest is amazing! :-)
    Between her, and our second hand trading, we'll get you kitted out for bub

    its the second link posted by missie-mack.

    We're awesome.
    definitely come along.

    its nice to find a like-minded community before you have the baby as well in my experience. eases the transition a little.
