We have got 2 ergos. We have used them with the newborn inserts when the children were, well, newborns. J would still go in the ergo on her dad's back if it wasn't for the fact that she has two younger sisters who use the ergos instead! She is 4. My son used it until he was 3 or 4

Does the Ergo cross at the back when you're wearing on the front? If not I think I'd lean towards the Manduca, but I think they're both great carriers.

I think a crossed back might make front carries more comfy after the baby gets a bit chunkier (though you could always switch to back carries at that point too!) Do you have a sling library near you so that you could try both out? I don't think you can go wrong with either though really. Ergos have a problem with fakes, so if you do go for one it's better to get it from an approved supplier (Eg John lewis, not ebay!)
On a side note, I thought your ticker was a Brussel sprout this week rather an a lettuce at first glance!

I've a Manduca and love it. It can be worn in a number of ways, but so far I've only had her on my front with the strap or cross over when H is around to help me put it on. Just be careful with Ergos as there are a lot of fakes around.

Apparently jojomamanbebe have manducas reduced at the moment £60 delivered I think? No idea if that's a good price just saw it on hotukdeals ans thought of this post. HTH
