Pros: Comfortable, well-priced, easy to use, versatile, beautiful
I purchased the Beco Gemini when our daughter became too heavy for our Baby Bjorn (she was about 15 lbs and 8-months-old). So we've had it for about 8 or 9 months. I chose the Beco after doing a lot of research on carriers because I wanted a one that allowed her to face forward. My husband and I both adore the Beco, and it is by far our most valued piece of baby gear. It is the one single thing that we cannot live without. There is so much I could say about how comfortable it is to wear, how beautiful it looks, and how versatile it is. But I won't ramble on about all of those things. There are just two things I really want you to know. First, this carrier goes everywhere with us. Even if we go out with the stroller, the carrier comes, too, because we are always guaranteed that she will be happy in her Beco. Also, it is much, much easier to strap baby on then to get a stroller out of the trunk! Second, the Gemini has saved my husband many times when I am working nights and he has to get our daughter to sleep on his own. Nothing else has worked for him, but taking her for a walk outside, cozy and close in the Beco Gemini does the trick every time! I would recommend Beco Gemini to anyone who wants to make baby-wearing a practical part of their parenting lifestyle.
