Hi I just wanted to ask what carrier you would recommend for carrying baby while doing housework. I usually use my ergo but with the infant pouch it is too bulky in front of me(my baby is 3 months). I also have a hug a bub (like a moby wrap) which I havent tried to do anything in but I find when I have her in it for walks and stuff it is really stretchy around her head when I try tuck her head in when using front carry so I don't use it much. Am willing to buy something else If need be.

I find back carries easiest for doing things around the house, but you might be comfortable doing that with such a young baby yet. When you do, a mei tai (like Babyhawk), a woven wrap (stretchy wraps like the Moby are not safe for back carries), or a soft-structured carrier (like Beco, Ergo, or Boba) can be great for it!

For now, I would either just use the Ergo without the insert (I just laid a receiving blanket across the bottom of the carrier so his feet wouldn't fall through), or maybe try a mei tai.
