Baby Wearing

With Baby #3 coming into our family in the next couple months, I have a question for all the baby wearing mommas.  What carrier(s) did you use and did you like them?  Here are the two I have been looking at:

For my first two babies I used the Baby Bjorn, and wasn't overly impressed.  Mostly, it hurt my back.  If there is a carrier out there that doesn't put strain on your back, and allows you to have two free hands, will you PLEASE let me know?  Much thanks :)

Seems like all my friends love the Ergo, but I do like the way the Moby looks!

I used a snugli and agree my back KILLED esp after having a baby in my belly for 9 months. I know many women love the wrap but with three I could never figure it out :(

I use an Ergo and am totally in love with it! I never have back pain with it like I did with the Bjorn and I still use it to carry Silas everywhere on my back now. I was a little intimidated by the Moby, it looks so complicated and I like the reassurance of having buckles :)

I had both! As you know I had the Ergo with Macey and LOVED it! Erik and I can still put her in it ;-) I use the Moby around the house and at the grocery store during the first few months... But after they reach around 15lbs. It gets too hard on my back. So then I use the Ergo only. But I use the Ergo, and the Moby in the begining. I always keep the Ergo in our car and Moby at home. If you pre-wrap yourself in the Moby before leaving the house then when you get to the store it's pretty quick to slip the baby in it. Hope this helps! ;-)
