Cant for the love of me remember what they are called but the ones that strap to you and you carry the baby in front of you either facing your or facing away. I was wondering if you use them and if your baby likes them also what age did you use them and were they hard on your back thanks

I use an ergo, and no it's not hard on me. My daughter likes it. The snuggli (dangle legs style one) is not good for the baby's back though.

I had an infanto (sp) baby backpack... I haven't used it since she was about 5 months because her chunky legs don't fit anymore lol. Id love to still use it.

We have a Snugli carrier.  We don't use it all the time.  She likes to be in the stroller so she can move around.

At what age or weight is to big for one of them? I'm planing on going on hikes come spring time and strollers can't fit on those trails.

I have heard the ergos are awesome.  I don't use a carrier with Audrey though, I like to just hold her when we are out and about.

Don't get one that has your baby have their legs dangling from the crotch. They are bad for their spine and hip development and are most often uncomfortable and bad for your own back.

Instead look into carriers such as ergo, beco, boba, manduca, or try others like woven wraps or mei tais... they all support spine and hip development by creating a seat for baby where knees should be higher than their bottoms (or at least level to each other) and spread the weight of the child across your back and hips so its a lot more comfy.

 
I wore my nearly 27lb toddler in our manduca to do a 6km off road trail run/walk and was comfy the entire time.

And don't carry your baby facing away from you. The ergo is fantastic. The back carry is awesome when baby is old enough.
