    I NEED A BABY/TODDLER CARRIER! one that can go on my back so i can get some household chores done =] I am pretty new to baby wearing so no idea what I want lol but I have a wrap & it is wayyyyy to complicated to get baby wrapped on my back...so i need something different! something easy for beginners! & for pretty cheap! I dont have a lot to spend, but I'm gonna be a divorced woman if I dont start getting more done around here LOL My baby boy is 10.5 months old & 20 lbs....if that matters at all....


    Also, I got my oldest son a LeapPad for Christmas....now I need Games & accessories for it! He's a boy, so I dont think he'd enjoy princess lol but even if it is girly, he would still love a Dora Game, & of course any other Boy games! Let me know what you have!!

    If OP isn't interested in your LeapPad games, I'm on the look out for games that will work on the LeapPad Explorer for a 3/4 year old boy too. Feel free to PM with anything after OP! Thanks!

    What about a ring sling? (I'm quite biased) but they are very versatile & really pretty easy to use. You'd have the option of carrying on either hip or your back (or several other positions).

    If you don't mind something more bulky (but also incredibly comfy) Ergos are my next favorite.

    Not sure what you consider pretty cheap for a good baby carrier but I have a like new baby hawk mei tau for $65. There's some purple on the print though but it is tan.

    Re: baby carrier & leappad games/accessories

    I have a 4th generation Beco (brown with a blue pattern) that I'd let go for $50 shipped. I also have a size 3 all black hotsling (can't use it on your back though), that you can have for $10 plus shipping.

    And sorry to derail a little, but do the leapster explorer games work with the leappad 2? I'm getting dd3 one for christmas but I need to get some used games.

    I think I'd prefer a Mei Tai (sp?) over a Beco....but to answer you Question, yes, leapster explorer, leappad explorer, & leappad explorer 2 games are interchangeable!!!!!

    Re: baby carrier & leappad games/accessories

    I have two mei tai style carriers that I made myself.

    The first is a turquoise stripe print with tan backing and straps. The straps are heavily reinforced and include padding at the shoulder. It is built for a smaller kid, I'd say birth to 2ish, depending on the size of the kid.

    The other is all black, heavily reinforced, with padding at the shoulder. I made it for a bigger toddler, but my DS hates being in a sling. It could probably be used for smaller babies, but the fabric pouch area where you put the kiddo is bigger than average.

    Let me know if you're interested or want pics.

    The black would probably last longer, but it depends on how long you want to use it for. The turquoise one would probably work fine for now, but the body of the black one is wider and taller. The turquoise one has a rounded top edge, which is supposedly better for carrying infants; the black one is squared off.

    Here are pics of the turquoise one in use, when my boy was maybe 10 months. Sorry they're not the best. I'm not entirely sure where this one is at the moment, LOL, but if you want more pics of it I can find it. The turquoise is more vibrant than these pictures make it look.





    Here is the black one. There are snaps sewn into the back, as I intended to make some removable decorative covers for it, but I never got around to it. I can remove them before shipping. The top straps look kind of twisty, it's just because I didn't bother straightening them before taking the photo



    And here's a pic of the padded strap. The padding is 1/4 inch thick, nice quality foam.



    I would like to get $35 shipped on either of them.

    I can do $35! do you have any pics of the black one in use? I'm just trying to pick which one would work best.
