I bought an ergo and found it so much more comfortable for both of us!

I had a Hugabub on my first baby. Gave it away.
Too much fuss and heat for a summer time infant.
We then got a Babybjorn and an Ergo after researching.
I still love these two carriers and I'm on my third baby.
The Ergo is beyond comfy, so much support there.
There's a 12 inch height diffeenrce between myself and DH and we can both wear it within in minutes of each other without much adjustment. Just a little tightening of the arm straps.
The Babybjorn isn't as comfy but once your little one wants to be involved in everything you do, it's great to use around the house with baby facing out.
They say it's not great for baby's legs to be dangling like that (so luckily it gets uncomfortable fast) but it allows me to get the dishes done, or put dinner on, without baby screaming for me formt he next room.
I did buy a Manduca on this baby, just because I thought it would be better for my short frame.
Nope. I hate it.
It's so rigid even after washing it three or four times, which brings me to a tip for you - don't to buy new carriers.
Second hand ones are worn in a bit and not so stiff and bulky.
So much more comfy.
I'm looking for a second hand Galaxy Grey Ergo at the minute.
I could buy new, sometimes the bids on second hand Ergos are so close to the brand new price but I'd prefer it to be softened up beforehand
I'll sell all of my carriers on eBay or gumtree when I'm done too.

I work for paeds and they all say the stuff about baby bjorns and hip dysplasia is rubbish. I've also seen a report from a paed orthopaedic surgeon where they recommended a baby bjorn for a bub with initially immature hips (which can turn into hip dysplasia if they don't mature).

Yes I saw a big sign about hip dysphasia on the baby Bjorn aIsle. It says something about baby Bjorn works closely with the hip dysphasia institute. It sounds a bit like they r defending their product.
Thanks ladies. So many choices. I will give ergobaby a try at the shop next time.

I had a baby bjorn with my first and she and I both disliked it - I found it dug into my shoulders.
With my second I had a Moby Wrap (like a hugabub) that he lived in for the first six months. I also had a Bubzilla sling but looking back, I don't think it was optimal when it comes to the TICKS guidelines of baby wearing.
I also have an ergo which was great for when number two got bigger and I had a Baby Breeze ring sling which was nice in warmer weather and at the pool.
My third was never very happy being worn but he was 8 weeks prem and in the nicu for two months and just never got used to it. He was also so tiny that he just got a bit lost in the ergo.
The good thing about carriers though is that the resale value is always pretty good so I've never regretted buying different carriers.

Boba 4G is another option that doesn't require a newborn insert.
I love mine, I tried an Ergo, Manduca and a Bjorn and disliked them for different reasons...
I have had friends try my Boba and have gone on to purchase their own...

Personally I love my ergo baby but haven't tried a Tula.
