I bought this carrier used, if you can call it that. A woman got it for her daughter and the hubbie thought the print was too boyish, so they never even used it! Such a great carrier! My son will be 2 next week, and he still fits in it very comfortably. He love to be carried almost as much as I love to carry him. This carrier is so comfortable!!! The thick, padded shoulder straps and waist strap makes this carrier so nice to wear. Nothing is digging into my skin or hurting me like some carriers do.
The snaps with this carrier make it so quick and easy to put on and take off. We have a wrap to, which I also love, but when I'm shopping... getting in and out of the car a lot, that can be a hassle. This makes is so fast to get things done. I wear my son grocery shopping, around town at local festivals, and even at evening bon-fires when he's tuckered out.
The reason for 4 stars in performance...I think the ONLY thing about this carrier I would improve on is the face that there isn't really a head rest for baby if they want to sleep. I wish this carrier had some kind of optional attachment for better neck support, esp in sleeping toddlers. In all actuality though, this is not a common problem. We really do enjoy this carrier so much!
The ease of adjusting sizes for different wearers is amazing too. My hubbie and I both use it, and it's so easy to pull the straps a bit tighter when I put it on for myself.
And, last but not least, the prints and color options are incredible! These carriers are sooo CUTE!!! You can mix and match to create your own custom carrier on their website! That's a service most other carriers don't provide.
