We are off on holiday for three week to Italy and I decided we would be best getting a couple of soft structured carriers for the girls. So, I bought Ergos, but it turns out they're fake. I'm sending them back and getting a refund, but just wondered if we should get something different instead? My husband and I are both quite slight, and the girls are not big for their ages (only just turned 1 and 3). Any recommendations much appreciated, it's driving me mad!

I have friends that use Huckepack (I think that's the right spelling) and tula soft structured carriers and really like them. I prefer mei tais and find the lenny lamb ones are excellent both for my son and nephew who are now 1.5 and 3.5

have a lovely holiday I don't mind admitting I'm quite jealous wink

Are you near a sling library? You could potentially borrow something for your holiday, then decide if it is something you want to invest in or not.

I have the ergo and think its great.
I use it for my 10mth old but my sister says she could still get hers in when they were 4 or 5.
They are completely adaptable so fot all size of parent.
