    Default Baby carrier

    Just after some advice... I'm going to go look at baby carriers and I'm completely a beginner!

    Is there anything in particular I should be thinking of asking/ looking for?

    I have a Beco Gemini and I love it. Easy to get on & off, I can wear it for hours before I get even a little bit sore (and my back isn't great) and DD goes to sleep in it easily. I use it all the time, probably at least 3 times a week, while shopping or at other peoples houses when I'm having trouble getting DD to sleep.

    We are flying to the UK in 10 weeks. Bubs will be 3 months so wanting to get it to make things easier for the flight... And because we have a pram already in the UK, the carrier will mean we don't need to lug ours half way across the world...

    And for quick shopping trips, or if bubs is not settled at home and I need to do something (eg. Cook tea).

    Thanks for the suggestions so far!

    I love my manduca. Easily storeable for use in flights etc. Good thickness for Australian and UK weather. Once you get the hang of it only takes a min to get bub in.

    I LOVE my Beco Gemini as well - I think it gives a bit more back support than an Ergo. Use it every day!

    Yeah. I should have phrased that better. Doing things like making a sandwich or getting ready for tea... I wouldn't put bubs in danger bar the stove top!! 😁

    I love our Caboo. It's by close parent. Avail online in Aus and through some boutiques.

    Feels really snugly and firm but incredibly easy to put on, adjust and wear. I paid $110. But I think you can get them cheaper online.
