Hi Alli,
Your training looks great - ready to run green this year! How are you and how is Inara doing?
Have a question, you are useing an Ergobaby, right? Have you ever tried the Lillebaby or Manduca? What would you recommendt? We always used Babybjörn but I got backpain with the second baby - if it is related to the carrier or not, I don't know. I am just thinking to get a new one for our last babyboy

Hey Ursula!

I have heard that same thing about the Babybjörn from multiple friends. I have never had back soreness with the ergobaby. Even Boris, 8 months after back surgery, didn't have a problem with the carrier. I would absolutely recommend it. However, I haven't had any experience with the others.

When is the little mr due? As always, we are so impressed with you guys! Hope all is going well!

Thanks we have a good time but we are missing the big snow. Little boy is due April 14th, but I am sure, he will be as early as the other two but hopefully not e preemie again. Maybe we (five of us) see us on the Westpoint.

It is just strange about the Babybjoern. I used to carry Janne for many many hours and Andrin way less but I got backpain with Andrin. Patrick never had problem. I will get Lillebaby and the Ergo to see which one is best. Good to hear, that Boris didn`t have any problem with the Ergo - looking forwart to compare.

I can also second the Ergo. We have an older model, but we love it and neither of us has any back pain from it. I also think it keeps her legs in a good position and is really comfortable for her (with the infant insert).

We have the ergo adapt and I've been doing 8 hours of walking a week with it plus art least that much time again around the house. My son is two months old, for reference. This one is nice because you don't need the infant insert.

However, I bought it second hand but basically unused because the baby of the lady I bought it from hated it. There's a store near me that rents carriers so you can test them before buying and I think baby wearing international groups often let you try them out too. Maybe you can find something like that. Pretty sure the wirecutter just reviewed carriers and wraps which might give you some more info as well.

Thank you for the recommendations! I now have the Ergo Adapt and Lille Baby at home. I will try them with my 18month old son and see how they are. Lille Baby Lumbar Support looks really nice, though.
