    hi there. I'm very petite as well and yes the baby bjorn is a back killer.. even when I make my hubby carry the LO.. Just a question. how long do you carry the LO till? Mine is coming to 1 year and pple tell me that he should really not be carried around anymore but rather sit in the stroller...

    our son is 13 months old and we still carry him in the ERGO especially in HK taxis or when we traveling. sometimes a stroller is just not pratical.

    My son is 24 months (15kg) and I still use the Ergo occassionally. I'm 4'11" and it causes me no pain. Love it!!!

    After reading these posts, I think I will forgo my original plan of buying the Baby Bjorn and go for the Ergo. I went on the website and learned more about it. But it looks like I have to buy the infant insert as my baby is still a newborn. Does that mean the regular carriers are meant for bigger babies?
    Does anyone have experience using the Ergo with small babies, under 6 months?
    Also, is there a Doubibou in HK? Whereabout is it?

    I used the Ergo from the time my daughter was a newborn. I used the infant insert at first - only really for maybe 2 months or so, until she was comfortable "straddling" instead of keeping her legs together. I don't know if the infant insert is really "necessary" but maybe it is for smaller babies, I don't know. And in all honesty, I think that maybe a blanket would work just as well...

    After about three carriers I settled on the Baby Bjorn (which was then only used for about 3 months before she got too big!). The one with the back support.

    I really liked the Phil&Ted but it didn't offer the same support as the BB with the back patch in it.
