Boba? Oh Snap? Can you help me decide on a toddler carrier please?

I am looking for something i can use with my almost four year old. We have a BB2 we love with our almost one year old but i dont think it gives her good knee to knee coverage. She is 40 inches and about 40 lbs. We wont use it much just places like fairs etc when her legs wear out. FWIW i am 5'6'' and 125 lbs.
I also like MTs but am i correct in thinking an MT wouldn't be supportive enough for a kiddo her size? Thanks!

I absolutely LOVE my Boba! I'm the same height as you and it's perfect.

DelicateFade, Do you need to use the foot straps for your LO to get good knee to knee coverage? I can see my dd refusing to use them, which makes me hesitant to buy one when the measurements for my BB2 are so similar.

I've never really used them, but for longer trips, it would be beneficial. I have the older version where the foot straps aren't as nice.

My ODD is smaller than yours (3.5 years, 36 inches, 26 pounds) but I'm a huge Boba fan. DD won't use the foot rests, tho. Honestly I've only worn her twice since YDD was born but that's mainly her choice.

I'm a huge fan of Kinderpack for toddlers and bigger kids. Super comfortable for me and my 22 month old DS.
