I purchased this carrier because my chunky 4 month old was getting cranky in the Ergo with infant insert. However she wasn't big enough to sit in the Ergo alone. Plus the insert made it very hot in warm weather. The width adjustment of the Pikkolo allowed her to be carried legs out making for a happier baby. The carrier is put on "apron style" which works well for us and our baby who LOVES to stand in her carrier. Three problems solved with one carrier- huzzah!
I give it (How many thumbs up out of five?): 4.5 of 5
