    Default Baby carriers- Baby Bjorn or Ergo or other?

    I had a Baby Bjorn carrier with #1 but it got damaged so I am now looking to buy another carrier for when #2 arrives. I liked the baby Bjorn but have heard good things about the ergo. I heard it's possible to breast feed in the ergo, is that true? For those that have used more than one carrier which did you think was the best?

    Thanks

    ergo all the way, i have done a lot of research and personally believe ergo are much better for babies spines so i would never have anything else.
    you can double ergo too which is going to be a great help for us.

    Ergo 100% Baby Bjorn are not good for the baby so I would never suggest anyone use that brand

    If you look back over the years you'll see I used to be a huge BB supporter.

    Then I got an Ergo. Please trust me, if you value your back (and your baby's!) then don't bother with the BB.

    I was able to baby carry until between 5-8 months with the BB, depending on the size of my bub. DS3 was tiny and I couldn't go any longer than 8 months, and even leading up to that I could only put him in it for an hour or two maximum because my neck would hurt quite badly.

    I carried DD until 16 months in the Ergo, and the only reason I stopped was because I felt the need for some personal space. I could have carried her all day long, there was no pressure on any part of my body or hers.

    I haven't used it for extended baby carrying, but I did carry DS3 around the zoo all day in it once; he was 3 and a bit and it was fabulous!

    I used both, the baby bjorn is great for newborn to three or four months then bring on the ergo. I just sold my ergo and it was sooo hard to let it go. Love it

    I love, love my Manduca! It's pretty much the same as the Ergo but a different newborn insert (its built in, not as hot) and it's cheaper!! I looked at both and preferred the Manduca. You could go to a baby shop and try them out.

    Wouldn't touch a baby bjorn if my lifer depended on it. Saw a baby in one today and cringed!!

    Manduca all the way. Baby Bjorn is great for newborn but after that the Manduca is worth every cent. The ergo wasn't as comfortable for me, so I recommend trying them on before buying.
