Our DD is 11 months and I still carry her on the front in a gauze wrap or a mai tai. Not brave enough yet to try her on my back.

The Naturalmamas forum might be a good place to ask for advice.

Also, have you been to a Slingmeet? There are usually experienced mums there and a selection of slings/carriers to try and help with practicing different positions etc.

i have been carrying dd4 on my back since she was 6months old. she is now 11months old. i do love front carries as well.

the moby d wont work aS ITS A STRETCHY, ITS BEST TO USE A woven wrap for back carries.

you can back carry with the babyhawk.

There are videos on Youtube of different carrying positions with different carriers and how to do them so that might be worth a look too.
