Having tried numerous slings and baby carriers for my six month old son without finding a suitable one, I decided to try the 'New Genertion Ergo' in the hope that this would finally be the right one! It arrived exceptionally promptly from Free Range Kids and as soon as I tried my son in it I knew I had made the right decision. It fits perfectly, his weight is balanced evenly between my shoulders and hips, he doesn't lean backwards (as he did when I tried the previous model) and I even managed to get him into it onto my back the first time by putting him in my hip, twisting him round and putting each arm into the shoulder straps whilst holding him with the oposite arm. I took him for a good walk with the carrier on my back, and wouldn't really have known I was wearing it. My baby son seemed really comfy too and loved the little head hood which looked so cute, comfortable and extended for older babies. I would certainly recommend this product to anyone wanting a comfy, compact baby carrier for short to long walks.
