Unsure whether to go for standard (16"x16") or toddler (18"x18") - can anyone help?
DS is 18 months old and around 22-23lb. He's average height but long bodied and shorter legged I'd say. We currently use a Connecta which I think is only 12-13" wide and 17" high. It's perfect for arms in still height wise (come up to his neck) but he's no longer knee to knee. I'd say he'd need 16.5"-17" for knee to knee at present.
Looking for the carrier to last him until at least age 2 - maybe 2.5. If we have a second child though, would be looking to use it from a younger age - maybe 10-12 months ish. But if it could do 12-24 months ideally that would be ok.
Oh, it's a Madame Googoo I'm thinking of if that makes a difference (I wrote a long rambling thread before that didn't get any response but I did ask in the title about MGG specifically which I think not many have experience of).
Good to know that you can cinch them in to make them smaller if needs be, whereas I guess you can't make them bigger. Also it makes sense to buy a carrier that's going to suit the child I already have rather than the hypothetical second baby that my husband hasn't even agreed to yet
Glad I'm not the only one, Tulip! Luckily, I'd like a 3-4 year age gap, so I have a bit of time to talk him round...
Now just need to decide on fabric for this carrier. I've scrolled through all the pictures on Madame Googoo's Facebook page about a zillion times and I can't decide. There's almost too much choice really!
