    A way to carry my toddler

    I am looking for an Ergo or maybe a Beco or something like that. Anything easy to use and not super expensive. I will pretty much just be using it to walk to DS's preschool to pick him up, but DD has to go with me, and the terrain is not conducive to strollers. There were some on zulily a few days ago, but I missed it before I could talk DH into it.

    I will be selling my beco. It's about to be washed. It's carnival print with expresso straps. Comes with infant insert, sleep hood and original box if needed. Used for about 6 months regularly before I got my boba.

    Say $70 shipped? No stains but it's got a couple of spit marks from teething babies (hence the need to wash) it's a butterfly 2 so no recall.

    I have an all black Beco Butterfly 2 that I hardly ever used! I didn't like the fit on me. Let me know if you're interested!

    Um, what's the difference in an Ergo and a Beco? I'm on the small side. Would one fit better than the other?

    We had an ergo sport and a beco (gen.3, not made anymore). The ergo doesn't fit me AT ALL. I feel like I have fairly broad shoulders, and I still always felt like the straps were sitting on the very edge of my shoulders. My beco always fit me amazingly well (and, um, was way cute than the ergo )

    The ergo sport was for my DH (5'10, 165 lbs) and he loved it.

    The Ergo Sport is totally different from the Ergo Original. Mine is the original. I am not sure what Beco Chrissy has, but if its a Beco Butterfly then there is an internal harness system.
