    I have used both. Bjorn Miracle is great when bubs was young and I still sometimes use it when she is clingy. The miracle is good on the back too. The ergo is HOT for both bub and I, great for back carrying. It really is personal preference. Borrow a baby and go to the shop if your belly isn't too big or get hubby to try.

    I highly discourage a baby bjorn. I bought the active with lumbar support and it hurt my back and they are also no good for bubs hips. I sold it and we now use a manduca.

    Thanks ladies. I was pretty much planning on getting the ergo. Are there different types? Is the newborn insert sold separately? Would you recommend buying new or is secondhand ok? I'll have to try one out in the shops but is it easy to use? I had a sling and couldn't get that to work for me.

    Just be careful if you decide to go secondhand...there are a lot of fakes out there unfortunately...

    I didn't use the newborn insert as it was a bit too snug n bub didn't like how she had to sit in it with her legs crossed so i just used the cusion that comes with the insert and that made her sit higher with her legs around me. They are bit tricky to start with and its important you have the straps right and not too tight over your shoulders as its meant to sit on your hips (if that makes sense?) Youtube has some great demo's. Once you get used to it its easy peasy

    This for me too. I didn't/don't like the ergo for newbies, but after a few months its fantastic.

    I reccomend trying them on though first - the BB never once gave me a bad back, yet everyone seems to complain about that. So all carriers fit people differently.

    You could always try something like a hug a bub for the newborn stage
