Less Bulky Carrier

M

I have the Ergo360 but it’s much too bulky for my frame.. any suggestions for a soft structured / structured carrier for an almost 1 month old?

    I had a baby Bjorn original handed down to me and find it more comfortable than the ergo 360 as well.

    I was looking at those! They even have a mini version coming out.

    Have you tried a wrap? The Moby wrap is super lightweight & comfy. I have a smaller frame & I started using it with my little girl when she reached about 8lbs.

    I liked the K’tan when my daughter was an infant. As she got heavier, we moved to a Tula. I am petite and the Ergo was too bulky for me. Check out Babywearing International. They have meetings where you can try different carriers so you can see what you like before you buy.

    Pikkolo carriers are also supposed to be good for petite frames. The belt is separate so it is less bulky when the baby is little.

    I haven’t tried a wrap yet.. I think they are a bit intimidating, ha. I’ll look into them though because I definitely need/want something!

    I love my Lillébaby all seasons complete carrier. The lumbar support is awesome!
