    Default Baby Wearers, what's your advice?

    Hey tree girl:

    Yes the Beco is the only one to do forward carry. It's still not recommended for longer periods of time.

    I just found a pic/diagram of the Gemini and it says 'adjustable chest strap' so I'd say that's it

    Default Baby Wearers, what's your advice?

    I have a bamberoo ssc fb hehe

    In babywearing land that means soft structured carrier, full buckle (similar to ergo, manduca etc)

    I am also getting a wrap from Bali to try and also going to invest in a ring sling!!

    My dreammm carrier pretty much NEVER comes up for sale

    Are you on f@ceb0ok?

    (fyi: weird characters are to stop the spammers )

    If so there is a fantastic group, search babywearing buy sell swap.

    Let me know if you need any more help!!

    Missie I agree with you. We only tried it that once and apart from it clearly not working for ds, it didn't feel very secure once he'd wriggled and pushed around. I tied it tightly, but he's a strong lad.

    We've been enjoying wearing him on our backs (esp. Dh) in the beco. He's pretty well adjusted to being worn now, so long as it doesn't go on for too long and there's plenty for him to look at.

    I'm going to wear the next baby for a period each day very soon after the birth to get them used to it from the get go. Carriers are such a help!

    Default Baby Wearers, what's your advice?

    I used a baby Bjorn with DS but only for the first couple of months, and not at all with DD. I've been using an Ergo with DD and I have to say, when I see older babies in Baby Bjorns facing outwards, there's something a bit wrong looking about it. Just looks really odd the way their legs dangle :/
