    Default Ergo or manduca?

    I'm currently using a hugabub which we love but want to get another carrier (not a wrap) for when bub is a bit bigger.

    im looking at the ergo and the manduca but can't decide on which?

    If you've used one...
    Are they comfortable for extended periods of carrying?
    what do you like about your carrier?

    thanks!

    Trying them both on is the only way you will know. I have the manduca, love it, the ergo just wasn't right for my baby and I. I can use it for extended periods, the only thing is, (not carrier related) my baby doesn't like extended periods of restraint now she is crawling, so pram, car and carrier aren't used for long periods. The longest I have used it for at one time was 1.5hrs and had no pain from it. As every body shape and baby is different I highly recommend trying before buying.

    Completely depends on you and your bub. Im the opposite of MamaOJ LOVE ergo, HATE manduca - way too many straps and buckles for me to work out just cannot get it to sit comfortably!

    I was in the market for a structured carrier and ended up getting the manduca (thanks to missie_mack's super helpful advice!)

    My nearly 3 week old loves it. Im finding it very comfortable, I really like the super squishy shoulder straps. Obviously I've only used it a few times so far, but no complaints yet.

    Ooh ETA, I know its a superficial thing too, but I also got one of the limited edition patterned ones and its so pretty!

    Just to throw another in the mix, I love my Tula! So much more comfy than my ergo, and such beautiful fabrics.

    Love my MAnduca. So comfy and easy to use. DS loves it too and when he was younger would usually fall asleep!
