Summary: I love my Belle baby carrier. It is so easy to use, very stylish and not bulky like other carriers. I can easily put it into my diaper bag and I can easily place my baby in it. She loves facing outwards, exploring her surroundings yet still close to her mommy!
Summary: Received my Belle as a gift and am loving it. At first I was a bit hesitant b/c it is very lightweight - I didn't know it if would hold up & give me/my baby the best support. I am AMAZED at how sturdy it is. My baby stays snug and comfy (the liner is incredibly soft) and its also incredibly comfortable for me. I also love the Belle style- it's more elegant and has none of the frump that other carriers seem to have.
Summary: I'm 5'2 and my husband is 6'4 and we can both use this carrier. Our daughter is 4 months old and 13 lbs, 8 oz. she fits great and enjoys walks in the carrier (facing our bodies. we only tried forward-facing once and she didn't care for that). To shorten the top of the carrier if your baby isn't quite tall enough, just twist the shoulder straps before fastening them. The carrier is comfortable for me even though I have a bad back.
Summary: I bought this product after trying three other brands that I was very unhappy with. I happened to find the Belle carrier in the clearance isle for[$] and I love love love love it. I have been using it since my daughter was 3 weeks old and she is now 8 months old and it still fits very comfortably. Best of all she loves it as much as I do. Also, I am very happy to see that it is made from organic materials and made in the USA....doesn't get any better than that!!!
Summary: I had read great reviews on this carrier before buying it and it has turned out to be a great product. When I first put my baby in it at 2 weeks she hated it and screamed to get out. I think the problem was that at just over 7 lbs she was a little too small for this carrier. Now that she is 1 month old and a whopping 10 lbs she loves it!
Summary: I really like this carrier. It doesn't hurt my back or cause me any strain. The waist strap/belt helps to distribute my daughter's weight. I also like the way it looks. It's simple and easy to use. I love that my daughter can go forward facing and also face me. I have been able to use it with her since she was 3 months old by folding down the front panel. It would be helpful if it had a pocket somewhere to bring along a few necessary items.
Summary: I use this carrier with my 9 week old son and we both love it! We have tried sling carriers and other front carriers and none were comfortable to either of us. My son rides in this facing forward just fine and will only fuss if I stop moving for too long! Very high quality fabric and assembly and the fabric is very soft. I love the hip belt and I love that he is right against me and not seperated by any padding. It is easy to fold up to take places and easy to put on.
Summary: The belle carrier is not what I expected. The front comes up very high, and it covers my sons face. Also, many other carriers come with an infant insert so that you can start using it earlier, and the belle carrier does not.
Summary: I bought the Belle carrier for my second child after using the bulky Jeep carrier with my older child. I thought the Belle would be great based on all the wonderful reviews. Unfortunately, my 5 month old does not like it! The front comes up too high, so it either covers his face or digs into his neck. Also, I can't seem to get it on where it really feels secure and that makes my little one uncomfortable.
