    Default best newborn carrier for mom with back problems

    I am looking for a carrier that will work for a newborn, and also distributes weight well such that I will not have increased back and neck pain. Any suggestions?

    Moby wrap - but you have to wrap it well to distribute the weight well.

    FL, but Midwest at heart!


    If you don't want to deal with all the wrapping (the Moby is literally a long piece of fabric), the K'tan is a nice option: I used it when DD was a newborn and I love how easy it was to put on. You have to buy it according to size though; it's not a one-size-fits-all option.

    The Boba 4G is a soft-structured carrier that you can use with a new baby (starting from 7 lbs.):

    I'm sure that others will chime in with their favorites. There are a lot of options! I think that the key for comfort factor is to use something that distributes the baby's weight among both shoulders (so, basically anything other than a sling). Frogmama is a good resource to get you started:
