(Off topic sorry) What carriers do people like for their toddlers? My almost 2 year old has decided she wants "uppies" because baby gets them. But she won't stay still for me to ruck her. I'd like to try an onbu, but I'm not sure what carriers my local group has.

Baby wearers - second hand wraps

Fidella do Onbus which look beautiful, but I kind of feel the onbu thing is a bit of a fad at the moment? I still prefer a SSC for better weight distribution - with an onbu all the weight is on your shoulders.

It's super easy to make your own hug-a-bub style stretchy wrap, no sewing required.
I got the fabric on clearance at spotlight and the width means you can make 2 wraps out of one length. So mine worked out to about $10 each.

Thanks @rosey82 that looks comfy for your toddler! I guess the reason I was wondering about the onbu was I thought it would be easier to change between DH and me, less straps to adjust. How does your Lenny lamb go for that?

You ladies have pretty much covered it all. Yay for babywearing!!!! It certainly is an addiction that I need to curb...

I'd love to try an onbu too, just too see what they are like.
What about a mei Tei? No adjustment between wearers. The Fidella fly tei's are pretty generous in size.

One thing to add is that different carriers suit diff people and babies so don't get disheartened and put off if the first one you try doesn't seem to work for you. For example I never got on with stretchy wraps and preferred a ring sling or buckled carrier for a newborn but now my baby is getting to heavy for front carries I'm really enjoying using a woven wrap. That's why starting with cheap ones is good or getting a good deal on one with good resale value so you don't lose much if you don't like it and want to try something different.
