Beco Butterfly II Carrier

98% Positive Reviews


Pros: Cute and good shape for women's bodies

Cons: No head support when baby is asleep

This is the prettiest carrier, and fit my shoulders and figure (at 5'6") much better than the Ergo. I got it when my daughter was about nine months, two years ago - it doesn't appear to have changed much since then. Whenever she fell asleep, her head would hang straight back and swing around - zero support! The Ergo sleep hood blows this feature out of the water, and unfortunately it was a deal breaker for me. My kid always falls asleep in the carrier. I totally fail to understand the deal with the no-support thing, although I heard the explanation was Ergo sued Beco to stop them including a supportive hood. I believe with a small new infant, the baby would be far enough down inside to give head support, but not once the baby was big.


Whatever the case may be, it was very expensive and only used a handful of times. I see their new Gemini model, maybe that one solves the issue. But this one is useless without sleep support, especially when you've moved on to back carrying.


Pros: Comfortable, great design, cute print

I have tried many baby carriers (over 10 different kinds, as a matter of fact), This is by far the most comfort one I ever owned. I love that it is easy to use, I could easily breast feed while my infant is in the carrier. The print is adorable. I have a bad back from carrying my oldest daughter around when she was a toddler, so having the Beco Butterfly 2 for my second baby is a back saver. It might seem a bit pricey at first, but it is well worth the money for what the length of time I was able to use it -- especially since I use it regularly. It's very handy to be able to carry my baby in the carrier while I cook, clean or chase after my older daughter at playdates. We actually love it so much that we have recommended it to all of our friends.


Pros: Back saver, sanity saver for colic baby, ok to use right after c-section

This carrier has been an absolute sanity saver for me and my whole family. My baby is very colicky and spends most of her waking moments crying when she isn't in the carrier. With this carrier I can keep her calm and quiet and know she is happy. When she is in the carrier I am able to spend time with my other child and be able to give him attention. It was fantastic when we went to the Christmas tree farm to get a tree. I didn't need to bring my stroller in which was a relief. I am able to go to a play group with my son and have both of my hands free. She often is so relaxed in it that she falls asleep. I had a c-section with both of my babies and i was able to wear the carrier with 2-3 weeks post surgery. I also suffereed from a sore back after surgery and this carrier didnt bother it at all The freedom and flexibility that this carrier has offered me is worth more then the price tag. I highly recommend this carrier to any new mom or a mom that has tried others with no success.


Pros: Comfortable, wonderful prints, fits many sizes,daddy friendly

We love our BB2 its our go to carrier. Even Daddy likes it. Can easily switch front to back. Even the newest of baby wearers.


Pros: to many to list

Cons: None that I can see

I recently borrowed two carries, the bb2 and the ergo.  Ive heard lots of good things about the ergo but my baby(6 months) cried and cried in it.  Next up I tried the bb2 and it was like a dream, so easy to use and my baby was sooo happy in it that he cried when I took him out.  I will be investing in my own bb2 ASAP.  Hurry and get your own!


Pros: lightweight, baby loves it, easy to clean

Cons: inside panel can get hot

I wouldn't get any other carrier, I am so in love with our Beco!  I recommend it to every mom  I know!


Pros: baby falls asleep in the Beco Butterfly2

Cons: the straps are hard to adjust

I like my beco butterfly 2 . It's stylish, made with organic material,and seems pretty strong.My 5 month old falls asleep in it so that is wonderful for me. 

 Personally I don't like the straps.. they are hard to adjust while wearing the carrier with my baby in it.  I've found the Ergo 's straps easier to adjust and it's faster to put on than the beco. 

It was on sale so that was a plus.



This carrier is amazingly comfortable! I have used several carriers in the past 6 1/2 years and this has been one of my favorites. I borrowed one from a friend when I took three 1 yr olds to the zoo by myself. The waist support is very supportive and puts baby in a comfortable position. I was able to use this carrier for 4 hrs straight! I am looking to buy one for myself soon.


I love it! It's super comfy for my baby and for me as well. The waist belt is wide so it's very comfortable and helps disstribute weight. The material is durable but soft at the same time. The prints are very cute, I got the Owl Happy. I always get compliments on it.  It's very easy to put on, I do it sitting down and always feel safe doing it. Honestly, it's worth every penny!


Pros: Comfortable for mom and baby. Easy to use. Stylish.

Cons: None

I purchased my Butterfly 2 from Craiggslist when my son was 4 weeks and very colicky. He would immediately settle and nap when in the carrier for a walk.  The carrier is very comfortable for both of us. My son now weighs 25 pounds and he and I are both still comfortable. This carrier is very easy to switch form front carry toback carry without  removing baby. This has been my favorite baby purchase!!

Beco Butterfly II Carrier

The Beco Butterfly II Carrier is the new definition of style, function and safety in soft structured carriers. From infancy through toddler hood (7-45 lbs), fast and simple on and off, front and back carry, designer fabrics, durable and machine washable; plus with an organic cotton shell, you can't go wrong with Beco. Made in the USA! What Makes the Beco Carrier Different? Removable Infant Insert Beco Butterfly 2 is the ONLY carrier on the market with this (patent pending) feature. Infant insert enables even the smallest babies to ride safely and comfortably, in ergonomically proper position in our baby carrier. Infant insert can be removed once baby outgrows the need for it. Recommended use for infant insert is 7-15 lbs. Infant insert is INCLUDED with purchase, NO not need to purchase any accessory in order to have a complete package. Security Inside Panel The shoulder straps of the baby carrier are attached to the carrier's inside panel, which improves the distribution of the baby's weight (thus the carrier is VERY comfortable for the wearer and the baby), and it enables parent's to pass baby from one wearer to another without taking the baby out of the carrier (very convenient feature). Inside panel contributes to the safe use of the carrier (baby sits between this panel and the outside main body of the carrier, these two components together creates a harness for baby's body), also loading baby on wearer's back is much safer and easier with this inside panel, because it prevents baby from slipping down (or falling out). Main Features: From newborn to toddler Front and back carry Comfortable and stylish design Shell is made with 100% organic cotton Machine washable DVD included Made in the USA! Special Features: Removable infant insert that allows baby to sit upright Removable headrest Security inside panel Special Values: Stylish designer prints and fabrics For use from infant to 45 lbs, no need to purchase more than one carrier!
