Anyone have the ergo backpack? I mean in addition to the ergo, the back pack that attaches to it. I often feel that I need a little bit of space to carry stuff. How much fits in there? Is it too bulky? I often feel I have to turn to the side when in front carry(to reach stuff), so would it make the problem much worse?
I personally don't know anyone who uses the backpack (I honestly make DH use a backpack or I wear a purse/bag across my body with the straps going under the carrier), but I do know several people who use the front pouches and who actually use them on all their SSCs, not just the Ergo. I also like Sleeping Baby Productions's pouch since it snaps on to any carrier and can be used when not BWing too. Hopefully somebody else will see this and have some info about the backpack so you can make an informed decision.
Thanks, I have the pouch, but I need something a bit bigger.
Here is the situation, last week I walked #1 to the bus stop. Afterwards I realized we needed a few groceries (lunch supplies). I ended up buying more than what my bags could carry (where I live you have to buy bags, so I bring my own). I had to buy more bags and carry a ton all the way home.
That is when I had the idea to get the backpack, of I had that I could carry more stuff.
I have a few similar ones :P I have like a million reuseable bags because I hate buying the plastic ones and having them rip My problem is I either outright forget them at home or I don't bring enough and I still have to buy more. Sometimes I try sneak giving them away. Like, "Oh you forgot your sweater at my house, let me put it in a bag for you."
