Hi!

I just saw this carrier: http://www.bellebabycarriers.com/ and was wondering if anyone had one. There are no reveiws on babywearer.com or MDC.

I'm thinking about getting one for DH becuase he has two pouch slings and a Babyhawk mei tai, but wants something that DS can face forward in. This Belle Baby thing looked like it might do the trick (?). We have an ergo, and DH tried the hip carry but said it wasn't comfortable enough. We also have a Moby, but DH doesn't like the look of it or the amount of fabric.

Any ideas?

Thanks

ouch...did you see those legs? not much different then a bjorn. You might like a MT or a pikkolo. the base is adjustable and they can go outward facng. (for the pikkolo)

I second the vote for a Pikkolo, which can also be used as a back carrier. The Belle looks to me like a tricked-out Bjorn, but it's still only a front pack and your dh and baby will outgrow it quickly.
