    I have a manduca. Similar to the ergo but you don't need to buy a separate newborn insert for it (it's attached to the carrier and just rolls away when you don't need it). It's so comfy to wear. I love it!

    I prefered the Manduca over the Ergo! More comfortable, longer waist strap, adjustable back length for when bub gets bigger, inbuilt newborn insert (the ergo one is awful in summer!!) and cheaper too!

    Tula is another great SSC. I prefer woven wraps for comfort and versatility however a SSC is so quick to put on

    I have the Manduca as well and use it all the time. I love it. DS2 is 9 months old and we've used it since a week old.

    Carriers like Baby Bjorns are not recommended by the hip dysplasia association because the angle the baby's legs dangle.
    The ones like ergo and manduca are as the babies legs sit at right angles instead of dangling down.
    I'm not sure about the wrap types one. It's worth a quick look on the hip dysplasia website.

    We have the new Baby Bjorn One and love it. It has lots of adjustment options to make it comfy for you, and has a zip inside that allows you to make it into newborn size. We also like that we'll be able to convert it from a front to a back carrier when DS is bigger.

    We looked into the suggestions that Baby Bjorn cause hip issues and decided it was likely a rumour invented and spread by other carrier brands. DS's legs sit in a nice froggy position in the BB One, and he seems more than happy in it- in fact DH sometimes uses it to get DS to sleep.

    I am pretty sure the new baby Bjorn have had alot of adjustments done to them.
    I am happy to admit it's what I used for my older boys, but having used a ergo for my younger 2, I will be going ergo again :-)

    I have a manduca and love it so far! I found it more comfy than the ergo because of the insert.

    I also have a Hana Baby Wrap (similar to hugabub hut bamboo so less hot).

    I've used a baby bjorn and found it uncomfortable for my back in comparison! I do think the newer models have improved (which i havent tried) but still think carriers that have bubs legs in the M position are better (ie ergo, Tula, manduca etc).
