Just wanted to add in regards to carrying bubs being hard. I have scoliosis and bad back and neck issues. I had a 4kg baby and I've carried her easily with the right carrier. My DD is over 7kg and I can easily carry her for 5/6 hours in a stretch wrap. I can't even feel her on me actually. We also regulalry go for long walks (hilly area) and other than her sagging from being heavy now I have no problems. It's much easier than carting a pram around. Your definitely making the right choice
