Wearing a Special Needs Child

David and I have always appreciated being able to wear our babies and keep them close.  In order to keep an active lifestyle with our girls, though, it's still very important to us to be able to carry them around.  The problem, of course, is that as they get bigger the girls get, the harder it is to find a solution that works for us.

When Conner and Madi were tiny, I loved a good baby wrap.  Once my kiddos got a little bigger I really loved my Beco and Ergo carriers.  After Madi got even a little bigger and we adopted Ramya, we needed something even bigger yet.  We got Babyhawk O' Snap carriers in the toddler body size and really liked them.  It wasn't too long though before they outgrew those as well.  The carrier we now use is the Kindercarry in the Preschool size.  This is a really nicely padded carrier that is also nice and wide to keep their legs and hips in proper alignment.  It also has a nice long body.  Once the gals outgrow this I'm not sure what we will get next, but we are hopeful these will last a while longer.  Here are a few action shots with us out hiking.  Our backs didn't hurt afterwards, but our booties sure did hiking up the hill!

Just stumbled across your blog from another adoption blog. We adopted our daughter recently, and she doesn't walk yet (age 4). She still fits in an Ergo, but we wanted to upgrade for hiking. We love our Osprey Poco Premium! It is very adjustable as the kids grow. It is a frame pack, so not ideal for running errands, but it is amazing for hiking! Just a thought as your girls grow. You have a beautiful family!

Hi! Just stopped by from Linny's blog - so nice to "meet" you. We have a Tula Toddler I love that goes up to 50 lbs, and it is so comfy and built like Ergo. You can check out the reviews online, don't know if that gets you past where your current carriers take you or not...
