My wife has changed for opinion.  She is now a wrapper.  Some of these wraps are are a real fortune and there is a bit of learning curve (she watched YouTube tutorials and then practiced a bunch) but she claims they are much more supportive than anything else.
If you are interested I could ask her for more info a links.

I know this post is old, but I would appreciate some links, looking for a wrap and I don't know where to start!

I picked this up a few years ago on clearance and I am really happy with it.

This is what she wrote
"My hands-down favorite carrier for all ages is a wrap strap mei tai. I feel it offers the best of both worlds - ease of wrapping and excellent support. For bigger babies, I love to wrap them on my back!

Which carrier will work best for you will depend a lot on your needs (and budget). If you get in touch with me directly, I'd be happy to help you!"
If you pm me I will send you her email address.

What motivated my wife in the first place to wrap was that she figured that if the baby is kvetchy and needing to be held she can't make supper, wash the dishes etc.  if she can have the baby safely out of the way happy on her back then she will be able to do all those things.

I've never tried one but there is a learning curve so you need to practice using before you need it so when the need arises you will know what you are doing and be able to do it relatively quickly.

I used to be pretty yeshivish but I live oot now so I'm not as much anymore.  I have heard relatives comment that where they live they could never wear these wraps outside.  I don't know how prevalent that feeling is but it may be worth considering.

I'm looking for a baby Carrier to be used with a 16 month old baby,  basically for some traveling and around the house as he demands to be held...

Can anyone make a recommendation?

For older kids, you need something ergonomic that won't break your back. Those are usually pricey. Tula makes a great toddler carrier, but $$$.
