My son is six months old and he has a fairly cheap sling/baby wrap I just don't feel its enough support. And I am eager to take him on walks since its getting warm outside. I looked up the ergo baby sling and its a little pricey wondering how long will we get to use it? Or mei tai

Depends on the child I still wear my 30 month old in a ring sling or woven wrap. And occasionally my 4.5 yr old.
Never owned an ergo so I'm not sure at what point they no longer fit/comfortable.

I wear my 30 pound 2 year old in my back occasionally. Amazingly enough, it doesn't hurt. I mostly use my ergo for my 18 pound 10 month old.

I just carried my 35lb 2.5 year old all over Disneyland in a back carry with my ergo. I love it!

You can wear them all the way through toddlerhood.  Ergo has a shorter body than some others so if you have a tall kid they might not get enough back support at some point.

I think the limit is around 45 pounds.

I have a Boba, which I like better than the Ergo because you can wear taller, heavier kids in them. But typically people wear their child as long as they let them in an Ergo....up to 3,4,5 yrs old.
