Works well for newborn, with a small hack
September 12, 2017
I'm taking my 2 week old around the neighborhood in this carrier and she fits well into it, with a small hack. Unlike some other carriers, you do not need an infant insert with this infatino. The straps tighten enough to offer good support for a newborn at the back and neck. One problem is that it kind of cuts out my baby's blood circulation in the legs. You can watch the little feet turn purple in a few minutes... BUT, we found a hack - roll up a towel or small blanket and put it at the bottom of the carrier as a booster seat. That way the legs can bend down naturally instead of forced into a split. As the baby get bigger and her blood circulation improves, you can remove the booster. Overall great carrier at great price, easy to put on and my baby always falls asleep in it. By the time she’s 5 months and weighs about 15lbs, we switched to ergo as she can fit in it without an insert and it’s more comfortable for the adult.
