When my youngest was 11 months old and we were on holiday in Sydney I comfortably carried her in the ergo on my front, from about 9.30am until 5pm - most of the day was spent walking around, apart from a couple of ferry trips, when I was sitting but she was still in the ergo and at lunch time when she sat in a high chair.
My back wasn't at all sore the next day, and it was so much easier than using a pram. I find baby carriers good for quick trips into the supermarket, shops, school pick ups etc. Much easier than just carrying them on your hip or getting the pram out of the car etc.

PP, if your back hurts then yes you need a better carrier!

I still wear my 17 months old boy (about 12kg) in manduca or wrap- most of the time on my back. It still more comfortable and quicker than a stroller!
I think I will probably use my carriers till he will turn 3 ....

I carried my 10 month old in the ergo on my front for 8 hours straight last weekend. I can carry my 2.5 year old on my back with no problems.
Wear them for as long as you want or can!
