Pros: distributes weight evenly, comes in nices styles, nice high back for older toddler support
Cons: can only use on one shoulder, cannot wear like a fanny pack when not in use unlike other ssc's
I purchased my Scootababy when my DD got too heavy for me to wear in our ring sling without a lot of neck/ shoulder cramping. It is very easy to use and I can wear her on my hip or my back. The back is high for her long torso. I love it it has been worth every penny.
