I posted a month or so ago about a carry for our Russian Adoption (http://messageboards.ivillage.com/n/mb/message.asp?webtag=iv-ppattachment&msg=18640.1&ctx=4096). Since my sister was willing to loan me her Maya Wrap, that's what I ended up taking and our daughter loves it. She is happy to be carried in the hip position for hours on end -- however, at almost 24 pounds, my back is not quite so happy about it!
I've read such great things about the Ergo on this board (although the pricetag makes me cringe), that I'm seriously thinking about asking DH for an early christmas gift. However, I'm guessing she's probably too big for the front-carry position. And I'd prefer to still be able to look at her (not wear her on my back right away). I read that the New Generation Ergo offers a hip carry position. However, in the photo and instructional drawings on Ergo's web site, it looks like the shoulder strap in the hip-carry position rides really high on the wearer's neck (versus farther out on the shoulder). I ended up taking back a Playtex Hip Hammock because the strap was really high on my neck and was really uncomfortable for me.
Has anybody actually tried the hip carry with the new Ergo carrier. What do you think? Is the strap up on your neck. or does it just look that way in the pics?
