My 19 month old still likes to and needs to be held sometimes. I wanted to make a sling to carry him in can I safely carry a 36lbs kid in a sling? I'm pregnant too if that makes a difference.

 a pouch?

i'd recommend a different one, b/c as you increase/decrease in size it won't fit

also, single shoudered carriers can make mamas sore after being worn for more than a short time

Yes I think it's a pouch. That makes sense for the size and it beginning to hurt. What kind would you suggest? I guess I'd better just invest in one at least the new baby will be able to use it as well.

1 mom liked this

I would get a woven wrap. It will spread weight out and offers many positions, includin back carry. 

Or you could go structered. Maybe a babyhawk
