I'm swapping my hoppediz and have two offers, one thirdhand pikkolo without the chest belt for back carrying or a second-hand wilkinet, which one would you go for?

<waves to knitta and sends psychic messages that she should come back to the feb thread>

I've got a wilkinet. I have nothing to compare it to so this may be useless but we find it good. That main drawback is it's quite a faff to work out how to put it on/off, but, once you've got the nack it's pretty good and it looks quite carrierish as opposed to sling like so dh will use it without a grumble of looking lady like wink. It also washes really well in the machine and there are videos on you tube for how to use it for different ages (it works until dc is something like 2 years old I think, but don't quote me on it)

Yeah, saw just that yesterday Loopymumsy! I actually have another offer now of a toddler patapum, so now I'm looking into whether it can be used for a baby. The problem with the catbird is that I'd need to buy the support belt sepparatedly as well as improvise the chest strap...
Reastie, I will, I promise. Thank you for being so kind! xxx

he's 4.5 but the average size of a 10 month old, that would make it ok, wouldn't it?
