Does anyone have one of these? I am interested in purchasing a woven carrier because I love my Sleepy Wrap, but I find as DS keeps gaining weight he slides down a little more and more in the carrier! I’ve read that woven carriers eliminate that issue and can be used up into the toddler years, but I hesitate if that is safe? Does anyone know if they are safe for an older child or is a more structured carrier like the Egro safer for their development?
I’m not sure if I would like the Egro. I’m most likely to use the carrier around the house or while running errands (I prefer my wrap over the stroller) and I feel like the Ergo might be overkill for that.

Can you go into a store and try one out before purchasing?
I just got my husband an Ergo for Father’s Day, and I have to say that it is really supportive and comfortable, even for extended wear. It’s also really easy for one person to put on/take off, which is important when you have a 20 pound toddler you have to chase around and wrestle into the carrier. 🙂

I obviously dont have my baby yet (please this week please this week) but I just bought a Sakura Bloom ring sling…Im not sure if theyre similar to what you are referring to. I have friends that have them, and they carry their toddlers in them a lot. One has an almost 3 year old that she carries (when she wants to be carried) and likes it bc she can choose to carry on her front or her hip so its comfortable. She also says it feels very safe, but they all suggested to go with the silk instead of the linen bc its more hearty.

We used one until about 20 lbs at which point we switched to the Ergo. We loved it and so did Cecilia!

@KellyV: I’m referring to these. Basically the same as the Moby wrap, but the fabric doesn’t have give to it. By The Way I hope you get your wish! It get’s kinda frustrating at the end waiting and waiting.
@Mrs. DG: I use the Sleepy Wrap which I love and so does DS. He’s only 11 weeks and already 14+ lbs. If he keeps growing like this I feel like I’m going to have to give up the comfort of the wrap so soon.
@Mrs. Spring: Maybe I’ll go try the Ergo out and then decide if I want to invest in another wrap type carrier or one with more structure. Price wise they are about the same, I think.
