    I like carriers that 1) don't need an infant insert 2) can be worn with straps crossed at the back. I'm quite petite though & apparently many smaller people prefer straps crossed at the back for comfort.
    Neither Ergo & Tula can be worn with straps crossed. They are very popular though. I've heard the infant insert can get quite hot.
    Manduca, Lillebaby & Babyroo Huckepack all have adjustable seat & back panel (so can be adjusted small for newborn) & can be worn with straps crossed.
    Most baby wearing groups have a local sling library you just join babywearers in your state (about $30) then you can borrow carriers from the library until you find one you like. Most ergonomic carriers are sold online so it's hard to find a place to try them on in person, so the BW libraries are great.

    The Beco Gemini is another one that is suitable for a newborn without an insert & the straps cross over on your back. I got one when DD was 2 months old & still use it now (I used it with DD on my back just yesterday at 19 months old). I've tried Ergo & Tula as well but adore my Beco & always go straight back to it.

    I have the Stokke and disliked it too, have bought a Manduca and happy days. Like pp said, I like to be able to cross the straps over at the back.

    I have a sling (sits too low) two baby bjorns (apparently no good for newborn hips according to the Internet) a hugabub (I just can't wrap it I've tried, and I can admit I have failed plus who has the time to adjust it for ten minutes while bub waits?) and I just bought the Ergo.

    Loving the ergo.
    I can use it, I can put it on and take it off solo and wear Bub around a decent length grocery shopping trip without getting uncomfortable and he loves it

    That said I may also learn how to carry baby in a sarong using videos on the Internet as I'm pretty sure people in villages in other countries on subsistence wages don't have to buy the ergobaby...

    Yep I bought the 360 because it apparently does something more than the price point below and for $20 I couldn't be arsed working out what the difference was! I got it from an online shop called Bellas Little Ones

    I can't see if the insert is included or not. Does it include the new born insert?
