Baby Carrying Back Pain

I love wearing Tate. My baby wrap is one of the more recent developments in Western baby care that I can really appreciate. The possibility of holding your baby while having the use of both of your hands is completely genius.

It took me a few months to get the hang of using the wrap. Tate loves being held, so the Moby wrap gets an insane amount of use around here.

I just have one major problem. At the end of the day my back is absolutely killing me. I constantly adjust the straps to ride over my whole shoulder, but they slide right back to my trapezius muscle as soon as I use my arms at all.

Am I the only one with this problem? I don’t know how my body can handle wearing Tate as he gets bigger. If you have any tips on minimizing the strain of baby wearing, please let me know.
