I've heard good things about the ergo and manduca.
I love my ergo! It can be used from birth with the infant insert and is so comfortable for bub, plus comfortable to wear! It's so sturdy too so I don't stress like I do when she's in a wrap
I loved my boba which is similar in design to ergo and manduca.
I second the boba. Love mine and still use it regularly for my 14 month old although I'm just now switching him to be on my back.
I have an ergo and love it. The only downside is that I can't face him outwards if he's on my front.
I have an Ergo and am using it almost daily for my 19mth old- she goes on my front. I have serious hip and back probs and it seems to 'absord' the weight well. I didn't use it when she was newborn though, only from about 12 months, so can't comment on the early stages.
I have a mini monkey baby carrier (not sling) it's like the ergo but cheaper and you don't need a newborn insert I love itImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1394951650.633470.jpg
Love DD and DS with all my heart and more x
I have a Tula, it has been a lifesaver. Especially while traveling! It's pretty too
I am currently swaying in my living room watching tv with 6 mth old DD napping in the Ergo. We feed to sleep, and if bub is full and has an annoying cat nap, like just now, she is impossible to resettle in her cot so I pop her in the ergo, do the dishes or a load of laundry, sway from left to right briefly in front of the telly and I can get a handsfree cuddle and nap for DD. I have also used it in the shopping centre and Coles etc. I got some use out of the infant insert, but prefer the Ergo without it once they're a bit bigger. I have the Ergo Performance. Totally recommend it.
