Summary: My boyfriend loves it, and I like it. It's great to give your arms a break when all baby wants is to be held. The only thing is my baby can stay calmly in it for 15 mins, after that she seems to not like it much.
Summary: I bought this carrier after purchasing the k'tan which was too complicated to use and the ergo which seemed uncomfortable for my son- my son hated being carried in both of them! This carrier is very easy to put on and get him in. He seems comfortable in it but it is very uncomfortable for me! There is not enough support and you definitely can't wear it for too long or your back will hurt! I think the ergo would be better for heavier babies or longer walks.
Summary: If you are home alone with your baby, is easy to put it on and add him or her. I had returned this product And literally bought every other carrier, the rest failed. This one by far is the easiest fastes one to do by yourself.
Summary: I use this carrier quite often during the first 2 months when my newborn wanted to be held all the time. It has good neck support for the baby. I feel safe carrying him around in this carrier. However, the safety mechanisms also mean difficulty to put baby down without waking him up. So I end up having to let him sleep in it and my upper back would hurt after using the carrier for an hour.
Summary: This carrier was great for our son starting at around 6 weeks old, once he was able to hold his head up well enough. It was too hard for me to bring the stroller down to go outside with him so this really was a life-saver. He seemed very comfortable in it and was able to look around even though he was facing me. My only regret is that I wish I knew that it would only last us a couple of months. By the time he reached 4 months (around 15 lbs), it started to get too snug.
Summary: Having used this on and off for 6 months now I feel qualified to comment on the product. Appears well made and worked reasonably well when she was newborn. However as she got heavier it became really uncomfortable to carry her as weight is carried through upper body and pulls you forward (but maybe they all do that). She hated going in it from about 2 months as it seemed too tight especially with her snow suit on and we haven't used it much as a result.
Summary: For the price it's not all that special! The plastic clips at the bottom where your baby sits are very uncomfortable for my baby, and he fusses after sitting on the plastic after about 10 min, and will not fall asleep in it due to the discomfort. It is very easy to use, and very nice looking! But I wouldn't reccommend it due to the lack of comfort for baby.
Summary: This product is uncomfortable to get in and out of and makes my baby fussy each time we use it. Once she's in it and I walk around some, she calms down. I rarely use it though, because of the difficulty of getting the baby in and out of it. The most useful feature I found is that you can use this carrier with newborns before they can hold their head up.
