Back Carrier Recommendations please
Jan 9, 2011 2:54AM
My 9.5month old is getting way too heavy for her BabyBjorn so am looking to invest in a back carrier for both me and hubby to use, I have no idea where to start and as they look quite pricey would really appreciate any recommendations.

My hubby is a manager with Cotswold Outdoor - pop into any Cotswold store with your baby and they will test and correctly fit a carrier so everyone is comfy!
We have a Deuter Kid Comfort II and we love it, used it for DD from 6 months to 3.5 years, and am now using it for DS - it still looks new! Little Life are also good carriers.

have you thought about slings? i have a mei tai and with a severe back problem i can still carry her (on my front or my back) with no problems. she is 21 months and 29lb8. much more comfer in these than bjorn types. both myself and my husband tried framed back carriers and my LO told me it hurt her and we could feel her weight so much, plus the carriers weight.
just another option.

I second a mai tai type carrier - they're fab and fold up tiny to go in your hand bag! I've got a connecta carrier too which I love as its basically a buckle mai tai, so you don't have to tie the straps each time, just click and go. Have a look here -

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
