Carrier Defeat

So a couple of months ago, I was all excited about getting the Ergo Baby carrier, thinking that this was the most awesome carrier ever. I still think that it is. It is easy to put on (after some practice), and is compact. PK, however, HATES facing me while in the carrier. Instead, she prefers her Baby Trekker carrier, because she gets to face forward. She really, really LOVES it! When she starts squirming in the stroller (which is often, these days), I put her onto the carrier, and she's happy as can be. So now I'm once again lugging the Baby Trekker carrier around with me instead of my beloved Ergo Carrier. I'm happy that she's happy, but it's too bad that the Trekker is so damned dangly (it is aptly named the Octopus by many). I'm still hoping that the Ergo may work out if I can figure out how to do the hip carry. Until then, I've got to stick to what makes the baby happy.

Can't you do a back carry with the Ergo, too? She'd be able to see that way, wouldn't she? Or does she end up too low?
