Soft Structured Carriers
“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
“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
The Beco Gemini Overall has the same great features of their Gemini carrier, but now the whole carrier is made of printed fabric. The Beco Gemini Baby Carrier provides support and comfort for you and your growing baby.
“ We got this carrier because at 6 months my daughter was 22 pounds, and we knew we would want to carry her past the weight limits of some of the other carriers. I used this carrier until she got to be tall enough to hit the back of my knees with her feet, which was at around 3.5 years old. I could still carry her in it at this point, but it would be kind of funny. Both...” --AdinaL

“ This is the carrier I used for small infants. It is the easiest to get them into and out of. I own two of the same ones, one for in the house and one for the car. Also good for babies who like to face outwards. Once the babies get bigger, though, the straps dig into your shoulders. It is great for easy, short trips like the grocery. ” --nicolerenee515
“ 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
“ There is no denying that Boba is my favorite baby carrier. And toddler carrier. There is honestly no contest! Ever since I started using one almost two years ago, I have yet to find a carrier with all its benefits. The features that made it stand out to me were the high rise of the back,which could accommodate my long-torso son; and the footrests that helped keep his feet in proper ergonomic...” --tubbytelly
“ 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
