Wearable baby carriers for 25+ pounds

I currently use the classic baby Björn carrier. I love it. However, my 7 month old son is 20 pounds already and the carrier only goes up to 25 pounds. I love having the option of the carrier for errands when he’s tired or when we go to a crowded place so I don’t have to deal with the stroller. I don’t want to spend a fortune on a new carrier but I would love recommendations for a carrier that would work when he hits that 25 pound mark.

    I have a Lille carrier that goes up to I think 32 pounds but my one year old doesn’t seem like he’s comfy in it any more - user error maybe! At any rate it does have great support now that he’s bigger and I had hoped it would last us for future hikes, park adventures etc.

    The LiLLEBABY goes up to 45pounds and I have this one and it has different ways to carry your baby and a back support my baby is only 22pounds and he falls to sleep in it when I carry him in it.

    I love love love my Tula. The standard goes up to 40 lbs (I'm pretty sure) but they also make a toddler one that goes up higher.

    Lulu thank you for the information. The price point is the only issue because idk how long he will actually love the carrier for.

    Consider it an investment if you want more kids!

    I have a Lillebaby and a Boba 4G and use both all the time (never pack the stroller in the car). They're essentially the same as an Ergo original or Beco or Tula. Difference is pockets, fabric choice, color and price. I carried my older son past his 2nd birthday and still carry my 16 month old at 26 lbs. It really helps if you master the back carry position.

    Look up Babywearing on a Budget on Facebook! People sell their practically new lillebaby and Tula carriers for really good prices all the time. Some will even arrange a payment plan with you
