My 16 lb baby was too big for this carrier.
January 28, 2019
For the price this is VERY well made and the material is of great quality.
However, it says in the description it’s made for babies up to 35 lbs. My peanut weighs just 16 lbs and is 24 inches and because of her length she is not stable in this carrier front or back facing.
I posted a photo of her front facing to show what I mean- the weight of her head makes her want to ‘fall forward’ and I’m having to lean backwards or hold her in place with both arms.
For a smaller baby this would be a great carrier. The babies in all the product photos are probably up to 10 lbs from what I can tell and by where their arm stays below the top strap they’re most likely only -8 inches tall or so would be my guess.
I am going to return this but I wish I had this carrier when she was smaller as it would have worked nicely.
