I'm on the petite side, and I really liked the Baby Bjorn. It offered soft but structured support that was really comfortable for me and my kids. I liked that the kids could face inward when they're more »

Thamks for the suggestions! We're not taking our carseats, we've borrowed some on the other end to avoid dragging them through the airport.
