    I'm a similar size and love the ergo. It's FAR too hot though on a warm day - especially with a young bub as you then need the infant insert for it to support them properly.

    Yep just try some on and see what feels best. I'm the same size as you and had a baby bjorn - DS was 4.2kg born so not a tiny baby at all! And I found the BB very comfy and used it until he was about 6 months (?)

    Same, I loved the BB and then went to the manduca.

    I am small framed and love mei tai carriers, they work well with smaller people IMO.

    Well I decided on the boba! I went and tried some one and the Boba fit the best for me and was super comfortable. I didn't bother trying the ergo as it would be just too hot with the infant insert. I loved the manduca too but it didnt feel as snug on me like the boba did

    Have you thought about a mei tai or a wrap conversion mei tai. They are very adjustable and super comfortable , more so than any of the soft structured carriers. Look on tinoki , its a website with a wide array of carriers , and the good thing with any of these is their re-sale value is close to or the same as their new sale price and they are nearly always in high demand. Just a thought.

    I'm the same size as op (just 1cm taller) and will be going for a mei tai with #2. It seems to be the most compatible for my size.
