what is better than a baby born?
any carrier than doesn't suspend bubs by the crotch...it is bad for their spine....lots of info on the web if you google it
look for a carrier that has baby sit frog-legged, with bum lower than baby's thighs

ime hugabubs were fantastic for little bubs, but once they hit 8kg or so, the stretchy nature of the fabric doesn't work as well as non-stretchy fabrics for a wrap
there are sites that show you how easy it is to make a no sew baby wrap...type that in google and im sure something will come up....the woven wrap is not stretchy and recmmended for older/heavier babies.

my other reecommendation is an ergo. you may be able to get a secondhand on ebay. they look more like a commercial carrier, but are much better!
