A Very Good Carrier
May 3, 2019
Upfront notice: I'll come and revise this review after I've worn it for a longer stretch of time.
My first reaction to this product was, holy crap that's a lot to adjust. BUT, don't let it intimidate you. The instructions only guide you. Once you start adjusting this thing from narrow seat, to wide seat, to front facing yourself, you'll have it down fast. It takes actual practice adjusting it, not just reading the instruction booklet, to get comfortable with it.
I love the front-facing-out option. I got this structured carrier for the back carry, not expecting to care about the front-facing-out carry, but uh, it's something I didn't know I needed. My 8-month-old LOVES to face out. And it's STURDY. I mean, rugged. She's hefty. She's going on about 17-18lbs and very chubby. It's roomy, comfortable, and very easy on her skin.
I love the fabric. I love the colors. Visually, it's a pretty carrier for boys/girls/whatever. Grey is like my favorite color, so of course I love that.
Also, big bonus: big girl friendly. Momma chunky. Chunky af. I'm a 2XL, with a larger stomach from having 2 kids and loving food. It FITS. It could fit someone far larger than me, too. The waist strap can kinda dig in, but that doesn't bother me personally. I'd rather that than have lower back pain like I get with my sash-wrap-carrier and Moby.
Back to this carrier. Try it. Seriously, go for it. I got an Amazon Warehouse "Good" rated product for only 27 dollars US. I saved SO MUCH MONEY getting it used. And it said on the rating that the product would have cosmetic damage. This thing is untouched. The tags were present. Maybe it was used as a carrier to try on before buying or something, somewhere? I have no idea. It's never been used, though, as far as I can tell. Budget friendly. Back friendly. Baby friendly. Bigmomma friendly.
If you want a good carrier to try, try this one. It does look like a puzzle at first. It is a little extra af to try and mess with initially. But it's damn sturdy and damn good especially for the price.
