Please give me advice on what could be a good baby carrier for us. I have a big baby, 12lbs and is 1 month old lol. So i know the moby is not a good option & i dont want any that will hurt her crotch. Thxs!

Ergo. The born isn't good for their hips at al. Plus, the ergo goes up to 45+ lbs. I carry my 5 year old in it still.

Why can't you use a Moby?



I used it with my son until he was over 20 lbs. I loved it.

2 pounds will come fast for her as her baby is only one month old and 12 pounds already. $50 for a Moby you use 3 months isn't a great deal when you can spend $80-100 for an ergo and use it for 18+mo

Well ive read moby isnt good after 15 lbs... So i dont wanna buy smthing to use for only a month or so. I might end up with an ergo. I like the wraps but im extremely afraid of her slipping down lol. Plus i doubt my husband will want to wear a colorful wrap lol. Ergo looks " unisex" lol

Go with Ergo. I got a Moby and my DS grew out of it by 5 months. :? He was a big baby like yours. The Ergo is expensive but I heard it's worth every penny, especially if your baby is high needs or you hate strollers lol.

my grandma found instructions online for a DIY ring sling and made me one. I LOVE it so much and so does LO. she's a month old, just under 9 pounds and easily falls asleep in it :) I've also nursed her several times in it so I was free to use my hands to eat, clean, etc.



It's also very simple to use :)
