Re : Ergo versus Frame carriers (Kelty)

I've never tried a Kelty but I've heard really good things about Ergos. Baby Hawk is another soft brand/style that many of my friends love. I used Moby wraps & pouches when my 3rd was little & then an Ella Roo Mei Hip when she was older (over 6 months). I carried her all over Disney for 7 days when she was 13 months in my Mei Hip - I loved it & so did she. It was super easy to get on & off and folded up very small.

But she's 2.5 & still not 25 lbs yet so I can't say how it would be for bigger babies. I haven't tried it in a long time but we're going back to Disney in Dec. (she'll be 3 later that month) and I'm thinking of taking it!!

Ergo versus Frame carriers (Kelty)

Postby alexa5 » Mon May 24, 2010 09:51 am

Anyone with experience with one or both of the above? We are in the process of trying out a Kelty because I thought that would be the more comfortable option for a 25 lb baby, but now that I have worn it once I am not so sure.

I am considering trying an Ergo as well, hoping that a soft carrier might be easier to get on and off as well as feel more comfortable? Or is there no hope to be comfortable with 25+ pounds on your back?
