Product name: Yamo Baby Carrier

Brief description of product: Structured soft carrier similar to an Ergo

Store/Site of purchase: Ebay, from Israel where it is made

Price: $85

How long have you used this product? 2 weeks

Fit/Sizing: one size, a tiny bit too big in the waist for me at it's smallest setting. I wear a 1-2 in pants so it should fit most people perfectly. It is not too big as to bother me much, but I would like to tighten it more.

Performance: Great! I love it! I can carry my 40 lb. 4 yr. old in it for 20 minutes or so and my 21 lb. 1 yr. old for hours. It is very comfy and easy to use. It comes with a bag to put it in that clips onto the carrier-- I have taken to using this bag as a diaper bag so I don't have to carry anything. It weighs half as much as an ergo and is less bulky.

Workmomship: It is very well made, the stitching and the buckles seem very durable.

Customer Service/Communication: Good

Would you purchase this product again? A billion times over. I wish I had gotten it when my oldest was born instead of when my youngest is 1.

Have you made a complaint to the WAHM about the product? If yes, please provide details of any resolution or lack thereof: Nope.

Additional Comments: The sleeping hood buckles up and clicks loudly enough that it could theoretically wake a sleeping baby. But it hasn't woken my light sleeper yet. I picked it over the Ergo because it comes in brown, my favorite color.

I give it (How many thumbs up out of five?): 4.5

I've tried the Yamo for two minutes yesterday (it was a friend's) and I love it, but I too find that the smallest setting for the waist is still too big (I'm not that skinny btw). I think it's great for back carry for a 6 m.o. baby and older.
In UK, it's around GBP 50 from Israel. As soon as I can afford, I'll get one!
