ERGO Baby Carrier Organic Denim with Solid Blue Lining | ERGO Baby Carrier, Inc
This was the fourth carrier that I tried--the first three being a wrap, a pouch, and the Baby Bjorn. It is wonderful! The weight of the baby is carried on your hips rather than your shoulders, so you can carry the baby for hours. My son is a year old, and I got this at about six months. I can clean house, prepare dinner, do yard work, and shop easily. We're still working on perfecting the back carry, but I know it'll be great when we get comfortable with it. It holds up to 40 pounds, so we'll be able to use it for at least a couple more years. The only downside is that you can't face the baby outward. My son occasionally gets restless when he can't see what's going on.
