    Default Recommend me a baby carrier that won't exacerbate neck issues

    Just wondering if there are any types of baby carriers out there that won't pull on my neck/shoulders? If so, could I please have recommendations?

    We were given a baby bjorn but I have heard they are bad for people who have neck or back issues so I was looking for other options. I'm not sure if there is even anything out there like that will work, but I thought I'd ask - if the weight of the baby pulls downwards on the front or back of my shoulders I will end up setting my neck off again which I really need to avoid.

    It would need to be something that I can use for bub from newborn. It also needs to be something I can put on & take off easily by myself.

    I'll probably need to use a baby carrier for fairly long periods of time (going out & about on public transport as I don't drive) so it needs to be comfortable for both me & the baby.

    I find the Tula great and I have a dodgy neck following a motor bike accident. Maybe you could go to a local baby wearers meet and try a few out?

    I second the idea of a local meet. And have a look at ergo's.

    Definitely something with a snug waist strap, and something that has wide straps that cup the shoulder, rather than sit on top of it.
    The most comfortable and supportive carrier IMO is a wrap. Yes you need to learn to tie it, but after you do it a few times it's really easy.
