I have a beco butterfly and absolutely love it - especially love that you can put the baby in it first then put it on, so I find it much easier to get on my back and swap from back to front, and between me and DP without taking ds out.
It doesn't go front facing but I don't really like having babies front facing anyway so not an issue for me.
Thanks everyone.joined one of the babywesring sites and had some advice. Don't think Gemini will do. Also looks like only ergo would be and option for both kids as/when we need it. Otherwise need to buy two!! Which is what I'm trying to avoid.not that fussed bout outward facing -I think-and tbh I stopped using B Bj by then anyway as my back was getting too sore.
Manduca looks good too tho. Betwixt!! Always loved Rose and rebellion for their designs and ethos...but doesn't gt v good score on mn reviews.
I use the hood if 10 month old ds falls asleep on my back - he rests his head on my back as belindarose says but I like having the hood up too to support him.
You can see him asleep in the Beco with the hood up here
I used to have a Rose and Rebellion but sold it to get the Beco instead. I loved it on my front with ds between about 5-9 months, but my then he was too heavy and I found it impossible to get him on my back. I couldn't master chucking him over my shoulder and holding him there while I got the sling around him.
