Hi, my 7 month old has outgrown our current carrier and I can't seem to find any to accommodate a chunkier baby. She's 22lbs with really chunky thighs which I'm finding difficult to get one she'll fit comfortable in.
I really love using a carrier so any recommendations would be great, thank you
Are sling libraries doing loans during Covid? Might be worth talking to your nearest library, and trying some out.
I'd look at a connecta. I wore my nearly 3 year old (without chunky thighs) on my front, and could just about get the nearly 5 year old in it on my back if I had to when we borrowed one to go on holiday.
