  • A 9 month old is an infant. But I would go for a ring sling like a maya or a mobi wrap, there are lots of different positions you can carry them in.

  • I know that i mean a lot of them seem to have little weight capacities I had the moby wrap and it was good but i was trying to see if there is something simpler out there that i can quickly put her in an out of the moby wrap was a little time consuming... I will check out the ring sling thanks =)

  • Honestly, I've never paid any attention to that, most carriers go up to 30 pounds or so, I think. My kids are small, so they don't hit 30 pounds until they are over 3 years old.

    I just looked it up, the maya has a 35 pound weight limit.

  • The ERGO is absolutely fantastic. I have a 13 month old and we still use it! The weigh limit is up to 40 pounds :) It's great and I barely feell him at all. I found the slings to be painful because they put so much pressure on one shoulder. Good luck!
