Best baby carriers?

I want to be able to "wear" my next child. I had a Chicco carrier with my son, but it killed my back! I'm only 5'1" and have a 40DD chest. So weight distribution is imparative! I've looked at the Moby sling and the Ultimate Baby Wrap, but would like to know opinions not just on these products, but others as well. Thanks for your help in advance:)

  • I tried the Bjorn..hurt my back!, I tried a really horrible padded ring sling and DS hated it and i just couldn't get it to sit comfortably.. so I'm going to get the Moby wrap (which i should of got in the first place as I'd heard so much good about it).. MAson is getting on in weight now (Just hit 3 months) so i need some good support!

  • I had a jeep carrier... its red and black... I loved it... I would put my baby in it and play on the wii and she would fall asleep... of course I had to pick the simple games... I couldn't really get down with yoga or nothing with her Lol. I didn't use it a lot though because she just grew so quick... shes 6 1/2 months and in 12 months clothing.

  • I'm a big girl with really big boobs. A Moby style wrap is perfect for this body type and a newborn. Once my son was a bit bigger, (15+ lbs) I felt more comfortable with a ring sling, with him sitting on my hip.

  • I thought I would love slings and wraps, but my ds hates them. Every type I've tried makes him sream. He doesn't like being confined or squeezed. We went and tried different styles on yesterday and he seems to like the snugly, so that's what we got.It just depends on the kid.
