I am thinking of getting the Ergo carrier andhave a few questions. My ds is 9.5 months old and 21 lbs. He loved being in his baby bjorn and i carried him around in it everywhere until he maxed it out in length. I pretty much carry him on my hip now and my arms get so tired. He is quite independent now that he can crawl, and enjoys being out and playing on the floor at home. When I go grocery shopping he loves sitting high up in the cart with his soft cart cover and toys to play with. He hates the stroller but does like the jogger when we go on nature walks. Anyway, I have found that I carry him when I do menial stuff around the house, as he is very curious and loves to watch what I am doing. I wonder if this is enough reason to get the Ergo.
So my questions are
Do you use your ergo (or other carrier) with your dc 9 months or older?
Will this inhibit my ds from wanting to play on his own?
Weight wise will his 21 lbs be too heavy to carry?
How often do you put your dc in the carrier and for what activities?
thanks so much in advance for anyone who has time to read and answer this!!
