I had tried another popular brand of carrier, and had to return it because it pinched my shoulders so badly. Very uncomfortable! I spent the extra money to get the Ergo carrier and it is so worth it!! Very comfortable in both the front and back positions. My daughter is now 13 months and she still loves being carried in it. Love the Ergo!!! I suggest getting the strap covers, because my daughter loves to suck on the shoulder straps and the covers protect the fabric/are softer for baby.
Pros:Doesn't hurt your back or shoulders. There are lots of different patterns, both decorative and simple. I also like that you can use it as a front or back carrier (or side carrier, although I haven't tried that)
Cons:You can't use the Ergo with baby facing out on your front. I could see some babies liking this, but I haven't missed it.
