I have both ergo and Moby. Moby is cheaper. I got my ergo fron a friend and use it for my 32lbs 2 yr old. Good luck.

But I would look at a childrens consignment/thrift store or craigslist to get them cheaper. Baby bjorn is another one.

I like the sleepy wrap. The mob wrap likely wouldn't be a good option because he weighs so much and its quite stretchy (not in a good way for you, for newborns its awesome).



I would recommend something that gives you and option to anchor around the waist for better weigh distribution and support for your back.

ETA: Sorry I hit the reply button too soon. I was going to say look for a woven wrap to given him better support as he grows.

I hear great things about them. I am personally a plus size mom, so wraps worked best for me so I know more about wraps. But its also been about 7 years since I have used one.

Not sure I personally won't carry my child at that weight in a carrier. I know lots if Moms will so I hope they can help you find the right carrier for you. Good luck

If you don't have a big budget then stay away from wraps. A mei tai should fit your needs and your budget. An Infantino mei tai will run you about $30-$35 new and it works just as well as the more expensive brands.

Edit: Moby, sleepy wrap, and k'tan are cheaper wraps but they are not meant for a 29 lb baby. They start to stretch and sag once your baby hits 15 lbs.
