Just ordered a Freehand Baby Carrier***its here***

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
After all the talk on another thread here I decided to order one. Can't beat the price. I got a Kozy quite a while ago and while I loved it and it was very comfy for me, my babe wasn't too impressed with how the fabric ate him up. Plus the one I got was just the natural.
I just ordered #118 Guatemalan woven cotton stripes with black straps

She is making the straps shorter for me and adding a bit of padding to the straps. She is alos making the body a bit shirter too so hopefully my little guy will like it a bit better. I am so excited. I think it's going to be beautiful. Kaire is wonderful to work with. I will definatly post a review once it arrives.

I've looked at her site a few times and debated about buying one...I love her fabric-it's really gorgeous. She has good prices and I've been waiting to see more reviews so let us know when you get it!
Good luck!

If the body of an ABC is too tall for your babe, roll or fold it over a few times at the waist before tying the bottom straps.

Just want to say I have one of her carriers and it's awesome. She very much stands behind her product and I give her a big

I have 2 of them and I love them! I was able to wear my 5 1/2 year old for a short time.

Those are great looking. I may have to go ahead and order one also. But not before I get the hang of my girasol.

These pics are with my 2 1/2 year old and 4 year old cause my 6month old was very cranky today and I didn't want to have him trying out a new carrier and posing for pics

I'm confused.

Am I deranged? I'm looking at her site and I can't find the fabric you used for yours, Sebrina. I was hoping for something for a mixture of blues, didn't see it on her site, and then discovered that's exactly what you have!

I think becuase her carrier are one of a kind so when I ordered she took it off her site. But I am sure if you emailed her and tell her you like mine she could do one up for you. Tell her that I don't mind at all

It looks like the straps would rub under your arms, does it??

Not really, but the fabric is really soft so may not have noticed

Sweet pics, lovely fabric. Did you go with padding? And how much do your boys weigh?

Yes I did get the padding. My oldest guy is 42lbs, middle is 36lbs and my babe is 18lbs (the carrier is really for him, but the older guys like to have a "ride")

sebrinaw, your sling looks fabulous....just what i am looking for. i am wondering what the straps do in the front when the baby is being wore on your back. i couldn't find any pics that show the front view on her website. if it's not too much trouble, would you mind showing us front view pics? i have large, milk-filled boobies, and don't want a sling that the straps either get in the way or squish them in a funny way. KNIM!?

cheers,
jenifer
