Summary: I tried it at my lamaze class and it was great, but I needed help putting it on. I tried it again after the baby but was too busy to try to figure it out. It's great once you get used to it, but expect it to take a few tries before you get it right.
Summary: I like the wrap cause it does what it is supposed to but it would be nice to have an instruction video. Its a long piece of cloth.for the price I would use a long skinny blanket and wrap it around. It would do the same thing. My 2 month old falls all over in it unless I have it tied super tight around me. Its good but im sure I could of found a better one.
Summary: We researched baby carriers for a while and everyone said this was wonderful. In theory it is great. Unfortunately I am not as coordinated as others and was not able to successfully wrap myself while holding the baby. It's a very large piece of material with which you are basicly doing origami (sp?)on yourself. My little guy got so frsutrated with me each time I tried it that it was not calming for him at all. We have moved onto another carrier.
Summary: My baby did not weigh enough (they have to weigh 8 lbs) to use this until she was around 6 weeks old. By that time she didn't not like it; she seemed to feel constrained. I thought the wrap was bulky and very complicated. I gave it to my friend who had a baby 10 months after me, and she LOVES it. She used it right away, and her baby loved it. She has breastfed while using it. She made it look easy to use, and it didn't seem bulky on her.
Pros: Strong Construction
Cons: Bulky, Complicated, Difficult To Set Up, Heavy
Summary: First all the good; great color, soft material, simple instructions, it distributes the baby's weight very well so it's not too hard on your shoulders or back, and there are several possible positions to hold baby. Not so good; the fabrics is really long because you wrap it all the way around yourself so it ends up being a little hard to manage all the material, it can get hot; I had my baby during the summer and because this wraps around your entire upper half it tends...
Summary: Attempted to use couple of times. My baby seemed to be overheating in it during skin-to-skin contact, even though all we had on was a bra for me and a diaper for her. Inserting the baby and readjusting the wrap seemed more difficult and time consuming, than in BabyBjorn. When you have an already screaming child timing becomes important. Also, I was continuosly doubting if I did it right, is she positioned correctly, etc.
Summary: I LOVE this wrap in theory! But practically I find it hard/time consuming to put on and use often, way too hot for our Miami climate most of the year and I just can't relax with the baby in it because he slides around and I have to keep checking to make sure his face isn't covered by all the fabric.
Summary: Love this wrap! I've used my sister's when I babysit for my nephew and it's a really comfortable easy wrap. It takes a time or two to get the hang of it, but it's perfectly do-able and it's easy to let it grow with the baby.
Pros: Attractive Design, Comfortable, Easy to Assemble, Lasts As Baby Grows, Sturdy
