Promising Review: “My baby instantly falls asleep once he is in this carrier! He is 6 weeks old and a little over 10 lbs and fits perfectly in the narrow seating position! I am 5’2″ with a short torso, and it is very comfortable. My husband is 6’1″ with a very long torso, and it fits him comfortably, too. It really doesn’t feel like he’s 10lbs when in this carrier! We love it and highly recommend it!” – Arlene Dobbins

Promising Review: “My son and I love this carrier. We have tried a baby bjorn, baby ktan, lilliebaby, and the original ergobaby carrier and this carrier is our favorite. It has all the features I wanted all in one carrier. It has a storage pouch and it is a nice size. It has a hood to block the sun and to cover him when he sleeps. I can carry him front facing in this carrier, which he absolutely loves. This carrier is perfect for me because I am slender at 5″4′ and 125 lbs, and I can adjust it tightly around my small waist. It is perfect and worth every penny!” – Babyjay528

Promising Review: “I’m either to dumb or not coordinated enough to use a wrap carrier. This carrier is so easy to use. When my baby was a newborn she would cry the second her body touched her rocker. This saved me during those first few months. Loved having my baby close to me while still being able to easily move about. My baby would immediately pass out. Very easy to figure out, and get baby in/out. I still am able to comfortably use with my now 6 month old.” – SL

Promising Review: “I am obsessed! Perfect for smaller babies and so comfy on! I’m so glad I went with this instead of a baby wrap…This is the perfect mix of both a wrap and carrier! No long extra material to worry about or drag on the ground while putting on. The fabric is so soft and has the perfect amount of stretch to it. It is SO easy to put on, 3 clicks and you’re done. When following the directions before first use, just be sure to lay the carrier out exactly as pictured…Super easy to follow. It has great head support also. Literally, the second I put my lil man in this, he stopped fussing and passed right out. My baby is just over 7 lbs now & this is perfect. Happy mom and baby over here!” – Jezlyn

We traveled by plane with my 4-month old and I’d highly recommend it for any mum traveling with a little one.

Promising Review: “I bought this carrier about 3 months ago and since then have been using it constantly. Although my baby is 13 months now, it is still the most efficient way for us to run errands, I literally don’t feel his weight on me. This was the major plus as my previous one did hurt my back! If I knew that, I would have bought it way earlier.
Baby is very comfortable, content and well protected inside.” – Lucia

Promising Review: “I was very hesitant about buying this after trying a few that never worked for any of my kids. This one has changed my whole perspective on baby carriers! I would add this to “must haves” list. Due to the solid sitting surface my baby feels comfortable sitting in it, and my poor back doesn’t mind carrying the baby. This is a great buy, my baby is 6 months now and I am sure I will use it for another year at least. I love how you can just remove the straps and it become a strapless sit for an older baby (instead of using your hip now you can just use this). We went on a 3 hour hike with my 6 months old and he loved it! I highly recommend getting one.” – AG

Promising Review: “I had bought another carrier and a ring sling before coming across this amazing product. My daughter was born small at 4lbs and 12oz so I waited until she was 8lbs to purchase this carrier and I can honestly say it changed my life! My daughter has colic and gas and only wanted to be held by me all day. I was very limited to what I was able to do around the house and it was hard to soothe her. As soon as I got this carrier I was able to carry her around and dance with her to soothe her. Sometimes I would even be able to get her to burp in the carrier because the pressure from my stomach and her stomach would help her burp. She falls asleep in the carrier and it’s awesome! I think it reminds her of the movement of being in the womb. I really recommend this carrier to anyone and everyone who is looking for an efficient carrier. The price was a small amount to pay for the sanity I have gained back. No joke this product is a lifesaver.”- Gabriela

Promising Review: “My wife is a member of an international babywearing organization (can you believe that even exists?) and they have a local lending library, so we were able to try a whole slew of these things before buying one. This is the best. It is hands down the most comfortable for both junior and us, and the mesh back makes a huge difference in junior’s comfort level in the summer, while being close-able in cold weather. I’m 6’4″ and the wife is almost a foot shorter, and we both find this one to be the most comfortable. When the baby was tiny we wore him on the front, and when he got bigger we put him on our backs. It’s so quick and easy to throw on that she uses it for random errands and shopping, but it is comfortable to spend a day hiking in the woods. The only downside is it doesn’t really have a pocket, so if she goes hiking in tights or something there’s no place to put a phone or keys. We ended up buying a small belt pouch from a home improvement store and she slips that on the waistband of the carrier–problem solved.” – Some Guy

Promising Review: “Hands down the best and comfiest thing in the whole world. Shoulder straps are super padded. The Thick waist strap helps A TON. Does not weigh down on your shoulders. The seat is probably the best thing about it honestly! My baby just sits and isn’t uncomfortable just dangling and I don’t have to worry about his legs hurting from the pressure from dangling for so long he’s just sitting there and he’s so happy because he feels like a big boy! Also, the sun cover and pockets are such a great touch. I’m so happy I took the time to look for a good baby carrier and found this one.” – Jaky
