You can wear the babe in the hip carry in a SSC like the Ergo. They can see fine, and it supports you well.

You can forward face your Bub in the hug a Bub sling. it wasn't particularly uncomfortable either.
Otherwise i recommend the bubba moe carriers

Not a lot of people on here seem to have them, but they were really highly recommended on the forums I searched (I have a small frame and people were saying the ergo sometimes doesn't suit smaller people).

I just had a look at the beco but it looks so similar to the baby bjorn, I m worried the same issues re back ache would occur?

I have a Manduca, just like an ergo and I LOVE it! Wish I was able to get one with my first!! I and DH actually wear our 3yr old in it sometimes on back carry, I'm 4"10, weigh 50kg so tiny and have never had a problem with pain at this age/weight I carry dd3 in it mostly who is 9m and can feed her in it and if DH is around she sticks to his back like a teeny koala like this ImageUploadedByTapatalk1341995607.787142.jpg
And is asleep within minutes, she can look at heaps on our backs!

I would recommend getting a SSC (Soft structured carrier) like the ones recommended: Ergo, Beco etc.
A SSC is a better carrier for you because of the waist belt and shoulder straps - evens out the distribution - which is why you can carry 20kgs in them and only 11-15 in a Bjorn.
They are also cheaper than the most supportive Bjorn (the miracle is $190 approx for one carry and 15kg) where as an Ergo say, starts at $159 and you can do a front back and hip carry - all which your little man may prefer more than just the front carry.
The Beco does face out but only goes to 16kg where the Ergo goes to 20kg.
Hope that helps

No point wasting your money when you can get it right the first time.
