    Thanks. I'm liking the look of the boba. I was very happy with my ergo but if there's a better product out there is rather know. The Boba looks softer.

    I'm quite little myself. .. Does it sit quite wide on the shoulders? Does it have the strap across the back between the shoulders where you can pull it in tight?

    Then put child in the seat part and pull it up and lift the back strap over your head (this gives you some support while moving them to your back).

    Then you put your right arm over the shoulder strap and left arm under the shoulder strap. You then move the ergo and child around from the front to the back by twisting it to the right with your arms in front. Then when you cant reach anymore (for me when he reaches my hip) you put your right arm over their head to continue pushing them around to your back while using your left to reach around your back from the left to help.

    Then put the shoulder straps on.

    If you want to twist to the left just reverse the arm positions.

    I hope that makes sense. After her showing me once it was pretty easy and I've never back carried before this.

    As for standing - no they only need to be able to sit and that is more so they can hold their head up.

    Your dd is tiny so I would think the ergo would be very comfortable for you and last you for quite some time.
    Thank you. This is great. I sort of thought that people must have their toddler stand and get in. .. like piggy backs. There's no way dd could do that. I found front carry really easy with the ergo.

    There are heaps of clips on youtube on how to back carry. Maybe even check on facebook for a Babywearing page near you. The one here in WA have meets at lots of locations to try out carriers and get help on the ones you might already have.

    You can generally pick them up much cheaper second hand.

    There's a bit of tula-craziness in the Australian baby wearing scene at the moment! I bought my tula brand new for $169 and the following week someone was selling exactly the same one for $230. I couldn't believe it, very cheeky!

    Yeah they are expensive. Not sure if this would help but if you order through nurture nest or carry them close, both offer layby which might be an option for you
