Soft Structured Carriers
“ 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...” --capucine
“ To anyone looking for a carrier, BECO is the brand! I recently had purchased the Gemini, great carrier! It has everything you will ever need and want, its ergonomic, comfy, organic, made in California, elegant, not bulky, 4 positions, just amazing. Ergonomic: it holds my DD in a ergonomic (Proper) position not like the Bjorn crotch dangler. Comfy: It...” --2jmama
“ My husband and I are anti-"baby bucket." Everyone these days seems to carry their baby around in a plastic bucket with a handle, holding her at shin height and putting her on the floor for convenience. When I got pregnant, we swore we would never be "bucket people." We didn't know it at the time, but we were destined to become Ergo people instead. Need to get your...” --JulieInChicago
“I used the Ergo with my first until he was nearly three. He preferred to be on my front most of the time, right up till the end. We used it for grocery stores, walks, travel (so great for airports!) and some epic hikes. I am now using it for my second baby, age 3 months. She was too big for the newborn insert (birth weight 11 lbs, 4 oz and the insert goes to 12 lbs!), so I had...” --MinneapolisMama
“ We use this carrier all the time. We love to hike and walk all over town with this carrier. One thing that I really like is that the ERGO sport carrier keeps me cool on the outings which is no small feat carrying a little love oven everywhere. Definately worth the price if you want a carrier that can take long hikes. Sometimes it seems like the straps slip on long hikes and...” --psmama
“ This carrier worked really well until baby was about 15 pounds. After that, my back would always hurt when I carried her for more than half an hour in it. It's definitely easy to put on and off and can be stuffed somewhere pretty compactly. My daughter always seem comfortable enough in it. One nice thing is that she could face out in the front carrying position but I don't think these type...” --Andrea Kim
“Bought this in 2009 and used for maybe a month. Then, I found out about crotch-danglers, discomfort, and hip-displasia. I also found alternative ergonomic carriers which were better for baby and WAY more comfortable for me. I couldn't do ten minutes in the store with this carrier without shoulder pain. Infantino is the maker of the infamous bag sling o death. Most of the...” --BellaRose0212
