Carrier/sling to replace "tiger in the tree"

Hi all,

My baby really loves being held in the tiger in the tree hold (resting his belly across my arm) however he's starting to get a bit heavy so I can't sustain it for too long and don't think I'll be able to do it at all in a few weeks! Does anyone know of a sling/baby carrier that can give him the same sort of comfort?

Thank you!

Stay away from Babybjorn and Babasling for starters.

I started with a Victoria Sling Lady stretchy wrap - they are good for up to 4-6 months depending on weight of baby. A bit of a faff dealing with all that long fabric but very comfy on.

I also have a ring sling - you can do a few different positions in this there are lots of video tutorials on youtube

My main carrier is a bondolino - I have found it great - there is a video on youtube. Other soft structured carriers which are popular are Ergo (beware of fakes) Manduca, Boba, and Connecta.
