Any suggestions on back carriers?
Jul 30, 2010 2:21PM
Can anyone recommend a good back carrier for my LO? We're off to Italy when she's 5 and a half months old and I was thinking of investing in one. Also - what shops should I be looking in for these?

Hi, I only have experience of one - this Mothercare one:
Sorry about long link.
We've never had any problems and it's very comfortable. I like the quite roomy storage space under the seat, and the way the frame folds out so you can stand it upright on the floor with LO in it before hoisting it onto your back. The sunshade is very effective, too.

cant reccommend mei tai carriers enough! i get mine from www.bigmamaslings.co.uk and www.babyhawk.com these types of slings are so much better as they distrebute babies weight better plus you will hardly be able to feel babies weight.
my LO is nearly 16 months and 28lb and i can hardly feel her weight on me and i;ve got a sever back problem!

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!
