I've been using this carrier since my daughter was 8lbs pretty much everyday 1-3 times a day for about 1-3 hours each time, so you can say I use this quite often. I use it for walks and while running around the house which includes daily chores and a toddler. She is only around 15 lbs now and the carrier has been confortable so far, BUT when I tried to do front facing, I found it very tiring on my back because her weight was distributed differently than rear facing. The neck support is also quite flimsy, I find I have to hold my babe's head up when she naps. It can be kind of hard to figure out how to use at first, but after a few times, it's really simple to put on and adjust.
I'm fine with the construction of this harness, except for one very important detail. If you have a waist larger than about 38in, you're hosed. The waist strap won't make it all the way around. Now, I know that my wife and I are not the most fit couple on the planet, but dang, can't something as simple as this have straps long enough to handle any size parent?
I placed this on my baby registry and recieved it as a gift. I am overall very happu with it, my only qualm with it was when my little guy was newborn and fresh into the world. I felt he did not sit up high enough in it and like i had to have the carrier so snug that I was seriously concerned about him smothering into my chest (which, for what it is worth is not overly "padded" if ya catch my drift.). So when he was itty bitty and new, I preferred a wrap carrier. Now, at 3 months, I love this one. It feels supportive of him, doesn't kill my back, super comfy for being so simple and easy to take on, put baby in and remove when needed. Very good product!
I ordered this carrier around spring before covid hit. I had previously used a hybrid wrap type carrier but it was just too hot once my baby was over 15lbs. This carrier rocks. Its so light and easy to wear. I can go for hours with him in it and it doesn't hurt my back. I even lent it to my babysitter for him because she was watching him while she moved. She said it was such a blessing to use, she was able to keep her hands free and it barely felt like he was there. Seriously. My 15 month old also often falls asleep in it too. Gotta love it. Every parent needs one of these. Bar none.
I am from Brazil and my husband brought it from USA. This item was one of the best purchase we have made so far. Very comfy and useful. It does help a lot us (moms) that need to have things done and have also to carry a baby at the same time. It really did make my life easier. I would recommend for sure.
This worked great when my baby was a newborn. It was comfortable and she fit very well. But she grew fast. I tried using it with her on my back. It took 2 people to get it on and put her in it. I had to use the tailgate of our truck to help her in and that was a pain. The front clasp across the chest kept choking me. No matter how much I adjusted the other straps. And I felt my daughter wasn't very comfy. I am plus size, and this fit well with a little slack to spare, which was nice. Maybe this works better for small babies and petite parents? I got this as a gift and used it for about 5 months. I'm not shopping for something different and wouldn't recommend wasting your money on this.
I use this almost every day whether it be to get my child to fall asleep, calm him down, or house work that needs to get done. In my list of top ten things that's a must have as a first time mom.
