    Default Which ergo baby carrier?

    Which carrier can I use to go front ward facing? Only a bjorn?! I don't like the previous reviews on them

    I am in SA too and I am looking at the organic ones because of the patterns or is that too ignorant LOL :s

    Yes, try them on (preferably with a baby) first, going by reviews I almost bought an ergo online but when I tried it on both baby and I hated it! Tried the Manduca and loved it. I also loved my baby Bjorn for the first 6 months and I know they get bad reviews but you never know til you try.

Perhaps a local sling meet? I know there is a group in Adelaide and Semaphore (from memory) operating regularish meet ups
    Thank you missie! I live near Marion but that's fine my mum lives near semaphore I will get my ergo and try out a sling too I think. I just thought front ward facing when bub was older I have been looking at more organic options for me and bubba!

    I just bought a mei tai of a lovely wahm from SA who has a website called nurture nest. she rents out carriers and is the most lovely and helpful lady. she also will come to you with her stash so you can make sure you get the right carrier for you 😀

    HAha NOOO
    No baby required. I have two friends who come to meets all the time and aren't due till next year. They borrow my bub instead ;-)and there are a few demo dolls who come to some meets forums who don't have kids yet, or who only have older children who no longer want to be wrapped.

    Seriously. There's a meet in mile end tomorrow, and then a meet near Marion on the 9th, I think?
    Come along. We're all nice, and it's soooo much easier to impart knowledge face to face, while holding these carriers.

    And also, I agree with the previous poster! Nikki from nurture nest is amazing! :-)
    Between her, and our second hand trading, we'll get you kitted out for bub

    Any pictures of your demo dolls? I am curious!
    I'll ask one of the girls to post a pick of one on the aus bw circle facebook page? Which I assume you're on LOL
    I don't have any picks of me with a demo doll, cause my own is almost as easy to wrap as a demo. :P

This is why very few people use carriers like the baby bjorn past the newborn stage.

    However you will find with the carriers I have listed that you can hip carry with them, which allows your baby to see where you are walking (if they want to) and still carry them comfortably for everyone. Otherwise a lot of babywearers pop their babies on their backs so they can see over your shoulder No matter what you choose my advice is to find someone who has one and give it a try with a child in it (a borrowed one even)

    Oh I didnt know you can hip carry with a mei tei hoe do we do this? I have one but wasnt going to use it during summer because I thought it would be too hot

    Default Re: Which ergo baby carrier?

    I am wondering same thing. I live in Darwin which is just hot all the time. I have an original but was thinking to get the ergo peforamance S its just too hit and this bub will need to b carried on me a lot more. My original is super comfy though. I'm not sure the other ones would b as comfy after comparing them all in the shop. The peforamance is meant to b the coolest.
