    Default Manduca or ergo?

    Which would you buy to carry your 12 month old and onwards. ... And why?
    (Unless there's another structured carrier out there you'd recommend)..

    My son was getting a little big for his ergo by 18months and he has always been small. We are now using a toddler Tula carrier and love it. I would look at either a Tula or Kinderpack.

    I've never used a Manduca, but I've got an Ergo. I still occasionally use it with DD and she's a tall 2.5 year old. Very comfy

    I've just purchased an ergo in the last month. Have used it so much already and wish I had bought it sooner. Ds is 18 months and around 11kgs, slightly over now probably and I think he is quite tall but he still fits in it no worries (they are designed to go to like 21kgs or something).

    I mainly use it in the front carry position because I like to snuggle ds and he can't get away when in it lol. But I used the back carry position while setting up camp at Easter and it was quite comfortable and probably didn't feel the weight as much as on the front (not that it's bad on the front).

    We love our Manduca. Was so excited when I was pregnant with dd2 that I asked dh to put dd1 in it on his back so I could see how it works. She was 3yo and very tall. It was a little bit squishy but still doable.

    I'm still using my ergo for dd on occasion. She is 2, just over 12kg and very tall. Apart from her legs dangling quite a bit because of her height, she still happily 'helps' get herself in. She's a cuddler so is usually on my front

    I've been given a Becu Gemini, I can't comment on carrying a toddler but another brand to add to the mix

    Thanks. I should mention that I had an ergo. And don't anymore. Long story.
    So I'm looking at buying a new one. And wondered which was better and more comfy.
    Dd is tiny. . she's 17 months and only just 8.5kgs... And very petite. I started to back carry her once but can't do it on my own.
    Are any of them easy to back carry without a second person helping?
