"I bought the Patapum when my rather heavy baby boy…"
I bought the Patapum when my rather heavy baby boy was getting too big for me to manage in the Baby Bjorn. (Pain in shoulders.) The Patapum fits snuggly on your front with the baby all cuddled up to you. easy to put on this way, and comfy to wear. Great when baby in a clingy mood. I loved wearing it on my back, though it is tricky to put on by your self, you really need an extra pair of hands to help. It is possible solo though, using a chair, or leaning on car (sounds odd, but works) start at side, and swivel baby round in carrier before you pop on second strap and fasten. Baby very comfy as in a sitting position and wearer comfy as just like a small rucksack on your back. I got the baby carrier and not the bigger toddler one, so my bigger and taller husband found it didn't fit him at all well. Liked that it all folds into its self and so is easy to pack away and carry. About half the price of the similar Ergo, but then maybe useable for half the time and harder to put on back. It worked for us though.Read moreLess
