I'm looking to use a backpack carrier but do not know how to put on/take off the carrier when I am by myself. The specific situation I am most concerned about is taking my child from the car to the carrier. I know getting the child into the carrier is easy, but how do I hoist it onto myself? From the backpack carriers I have seen thus far you have to insert the baby, sit down, and then hoist the backpack on yourself. However, when you're in a parking lot you do not have the luxury of having a seat to hoist the backpack on (as the car seat does not provide enough clearance to do this).
So far the only carrier I've seen that addresses this problem is the Ergobaby, but I'm also told that the baby's head tends to flop when they've fallen asleep.
I'm looking for a carrier that's easy to use by myself and also provides some support for the child. Does it exist? Thank you.
