    Hello everyone,

    I am quite petite at 160cm and 49 kgs and I have a terrible back. Can someone recommend the best baby carrier for me please? I am new at all this stuff and need your help and inspiration!

    Thanks mums......

    I have back problems and I found the the most comfortable was the mei tai style. The bay bjorn is a killer for your back. It is okay whenyou baby is really small, but once they put on some weight it is terrible. Any style that you tie on will be better than one you strap on.

    i have a really bad lower back. we had the bjorn, but i am sure it made it worse. when my son was 10 month, we bought the Ergo Carrier which makes a huge difference! Can be bought at Bumps to Babes or online at www.doubibou.com.

    i agree with NYCMel - Ergo is the only way to go without killing your back!

    Ergo! B2B only carry black. Doubidou has more selection.

    Good luck.

    hi January!

    i am in the same situation as you! I had the babybjorn but it was really terrible for my back even though i bought the latest design with the back support. Presently - I am using a babysling which somehow helps to distribute the weight across my shoulder and back. It is still not perfect but i feel much2 better as compared to the bjorn ie i am able to carry bubs for an hour strap to me.

    Am told that the Ergo carrier will be better suited for bad back. Yet to try but will soon. My baby is now abt 7.5 kg...and getting heavier...

    hope this helps

    Not Ergo...

    Hi,
    I am 158cm and weigh only 42kg and though my baby is only 6kg, I have bad back and shoulders from using 2 baby carriers before.
    I recently brought a wrap from US (not Ergo) that is great, after using it, I cannot feel my baby's weight anymore, what's more , my baby who is a really fussy one,fell asleep the first time I carried her inside there. If you are interested I can PM you the details.
    Cheers
