Hi, I currently have a bubba moe sling and I love it! it's pretty much the only way anything every gets done around my house, DD2 is almost 11 weeks and 5.5kg and it's starting to put a real strain on my back, is there anything else similar that would be easier on my back? Thanks

I agree with the wrap suggestion. I am a bit of an addict though.
There is another forum that I hope I can mention called Kanga Collective, which has just started for Australian babywearers that has a buy and sell section, and the lovely (mostly) ladies there will be able to give you great suggestions.
My personal preference for a starter wrap (based on my limited experience) would be a BB Slen wrap (which was my first wrap). They are wider than some wraps which make them forgiving for new wrappers, and come in a good range of colors. They are also quite airy but also really cushy and soft straight out of the box so they are really comfortable. I bought mine from Tinoki in Melbourne (online) and it was around $80 or $90 brand new, but you could buy one cheaper used.
Used wraps are also good as they are generally broken in for you - they can be a bit stiff and crunchy sometimes.
Probably a bit TMI, but I love babywearing
ETA that I mean there are mostly ladies on the Kanga Collective forum, not that they are mostly lovely
