For serious walking, definitely the Macpac range. You find them in the outdoor shops rather than the baby shops (and they aren't cheap) - but I understand they are they only one designed by starting with a normal rucksack and back system, rather than by designing a new carry system. Even when we broke something on ours - we had great service.

Amazed you have managed a sling to 11 months - think we gave up around 4-5!

I was just about to say Macpac! They are amazing and ever-so comfy for parent and child.

We like our Kelty Kids one. It looks like a normal rucksack, and works very well. It's also good for tall folk, so DH can wear it too.

We had a Karimoor one which was great - still have it somewhere!

We recently acquired a Vaude Jolly back carrier, which is great. Comfy to wear and dd2 loves it - she keeps giggling as we walk along.

I got it on eBay for about half what it would have cost new.

there's a review section off the home page

I'm looking for a good quality 2nd hand one if anyone's selling

can't recommend the ergo enough - it has been so fantastic and as distributes your babys weight more evenly I can carry my 22 month old for miles in it. have used it from when he was 1. any more questions let me know

Another vote for the Ergo! We have both the Ergo and the LittleLife carrier (the mid-range one, around £90)

I much prefer carrying DD (23mths, 28lbs) in the Ergo, she feels weightless, whereas the LittleLife feels heavier. DH likes it though, and it is very adjustable (back length, straps, leaning distance from shoulder etc).

DD likes both but probably prefers the Ergo
