Has anyone used the Connecta with the support belt attached for an older baby/toddler?
I love my Connecta but its just dreadfully uncomfortable using it for a back carry as there isn't enough waist support for me. I like a carrier with a belt, have been renting a Beco Soleil and have a Tula on order as well but I'm realising I don't actually like many things about them such as the annoying detachable hood which I can't do up from behind, the stiffness of the straps, the uncomfortableness of front carrying.
I want my Connecta to carry on being great. Will the belt make the difference or is it not great?
She's only seven months but very long and well over 20lb. I think for the sake of £11.50 I'm just going to go for it. I hope to keep her on my front for a bit longer and hope that the support belt might help me do it. I have tried an ergo and a beco Gemini but I found them both so bulky compared to the connecta, and they pushed my trousers down!
Well, I can't comment on back carries but I've been using the support belt for front carries over the last few days and I really like it. DD's weight feels much better distributed and it doesn't add too much more bulk.
I ordered one! It should arrive today. The Soleil went back, it wasn't that comfortable really. I have the Tula on hire now which is very very comfortable so if the support belt doesn't work out I might get this instead.
