I found a used Ergo Carrier in good condition and the nice mother who I bought it from was willing to negotiate on the price, plus when I told her we were adopting she threw in some boys clothes and cloth diapers. What a deal! When I got home I tried it out with my daughter and yes it actually holds a 40 pound, just turned 6, little girl! And even at that weight it is amazingly comfortable, I can't even carry her in our frame backpack but in the Ergo her weight is evenly distributed on my hips. She thought it was great and immediately wanted to go to sleep on my back. Of course I did not buy it for her, but hey what a awesome bonding activity. For anyone adopting a toddler or bigger infant, I would highly recommend a Ergo Baby Carrier!
