    Pros: The manly way to haul your kid around, comfortable.
    Cons: Can't see what the kid is up to, putting pack on is tricky.

    Summary: When I found out that a one-night stand was coming back to haunt me, I knew that I'd need to get the mandatory baby stuff for when I get the little critter on the weekends. So I didn't want a stroller - too girlie for me. A backpack seemed like the ... read more

    Pros: Fits anyone, attached back pack, canopy
    Cons: Frame makes it bulky

    Summary: I had the soft baby carriers but all the support for the baby was put on your shoulders. That would cause back pain for dh. I wanted something solid. I looked at many carriers and decided on this one. I must admit the canopy was a big deciding ... read more

    Cons: None

    Pros: Top quality construction, canopy for protection
    Cons: A bit more expensive, but worth it.

    Summary: My husband and I decided it was time to start doing a lot more of the activities we used to before we had the baby. We've tried the stroller--cheap ones, expensive ones -- the front carriers, the old fashioned way (just holding the baby) and just about ... read more

    Pros: Frees up hands, outings last longer since child is no longer bored easily
    Cons: If you have long hair, you must remember to move it before placing the child on your back...it is easy to get a few strands caught now and again

    Summary: I wish we had this when my son was younger...instead we used the Baby Bjorn, which he hated because he couldn't see anything when facing me and couldn't see me when facing out! We purchased this after our last move (husband is in the Army, so we do that ... read more
