I was not too impressed with the overall look of the carrier. These are sold in stores too (now I know) with different designs, this one looks a bit dated.

the head support is inadequate for infants that don't hold their heads up by themselves

This is the only comfortable baby carrier that I have found. I have tried both sling and soft carriers similar to this Baby Bjorn, but they were very uncomfortable and caused back strain and pain for me. This carrier is comfortable for both me and baby (now toddler.) The leather is easy to wipe clean and will last forever and still look great. Black goes with everything. My baby loved being carried facing me when she was tiny, now she loves riding in it while facing the world as a toddler. If you are considering this item, but are worried that it costs more than it's worth... it doesn't. Save yourself the frustration of trying four other carriers (like I did) before finding a good one that you and your baby will love. This carrier is adjustable, so it grows with baby, and will last through however many children you will have. The only downside is that baby cannot ride facing away from you *on your back* with this carrier. It works with baby facing toward your back if worn in that position, but not facing away from your body. If baby is worn in front of you, then he/she can face either direction. Not a big deal for me, since that's not a position in which I would use a carrier, but it is one thing that some other carriers offer (including one other Baby Bjorn carrier model.) If your baby is a drooler/chewer and you wear him/her facing away from you, burp cloths can be folded over the carrier edge and tucked under the fold to prevent baby from chewing the carrier. Buying the specially designed bib is not a requirement. This is a great way to be mobile with a baby. I only regret not purchasing this three kids ago!

Skip the snuggies, bjorn and all the other crap carriers. This is perfect and my daughter loves it. It truly does grow with your baby. She slept in it hammock style for her first 3-4 months, then she sat up in it facing front and now she uses it as a sling on my hip. This was the only carrier besides our Ergo and a copycat sling my sister made us that we have had success with. And easy to use - nothing to adjust at all. Save your money and buy this.

This was ordered for my daughter's newborn and has been used 3 times now. It is very similar to the "Snugglie" baby carrier I used 25 years ago, though not made of denim fabric, is the same design. An infant always seems to get fussy or needy just when you need to get household chores done, and the baby is very content to "ride along" while you're working in the home. My grandson smiled very brightly when first placed in it -- he loves it!

I gave this as a gift. Upon trying it on- my brother-in-law did seem to need a bit more room in this carrier- he's a big guy, but not bigger than alot of Dads-to-be. So I was disappointed that it will only fit him over a t-shirt. He will have to have the baby under his jacket if it's cool or windy outside.

Sizing is not as advertized. I bought this for my husband to wear with our 9 m.o. who is 19 lbs. She barely fit in the carrier. The leg openings are adjustable, but the carrier itself barely fit around her. We would not be able to use this with her much longer if we were to keep it. If you have a chunky baby, which we do, your baby probably won't fit in this. Our other child was always thin, and I think this carrier would have worked well for him. Also, the carrier barely fit my husband. He wears a size 36. We had to let the waist strap all the way out to fit around him, and he still was slightly uncomfortable.

I returned this carrier to Overstock.com. My son fits the size limits mentioned by the manufacturer however, he did not fit in this carrier. The seat area was just too small for him. It is not adjustable so I had no other option, but to return the item. It was disappointing. My son is only 3.5 months and 17lbs. He's a big boy, but far from a giant. I think the manufacturer should make the seat area adjustable. Other than the sizing, the carrier was attractive looking and appeared to be well made. Like I said, it was disappointing. Oh, and I payed $2.95 to have it shipped to me, but $7.01 to return it. I didn't think that was exactly fair either.

A very soft, yet sturdy carrier for baby. Helps Moms have hands free while keeping baby close to body. I purchased this for my new grandson. My daughter uses it while doing household chores and out walking. Good value for the price.

This works so well when my baby is fussy. She goes right in and falls to sleep within minutes. She's so cozy and comfy and leaves my hands free for chores and also just to give my arms a break! I also used it when I went shopping and she slept the entire time and so much easier than lugging around the infant carrier.

I have another sling, a wrap and an ergonomic carrier and this is by far the easiest to throw on in a pinch. My other sling isn't nearly as comfy as this. It's slightly stretchy which makes baby more comfortable and the fabric is very leightweight without feeling flimsy (perfect for summer). I'm so glad I bought this (and at a much lower price than I could find anywhere else).

I have several slings and carriers, and this one is by far the simplest and easiest to use. No complicated wrapping and tying, no messing with buckles, just sit baby in there and go. However, it is not as secure as some of the more complex slings, so this one is the one I use mostly when baby is fussy and wants to be carried, but I have to do simple housework etc., where I can still keep one hand on baby most of the time, but appreciate the sling as "extra" support. I would not use it for a long walk or an extended shopping trip, but it's great just for around the house. It was also one of the only slings that worked for our newborn when she was too little to use the kind of carriers that go between their legs. In this one she could have her legs scrunched up like many newborns prefer.

I ordered this sling after experimenting with three other baby slings/wraps/carriers. I was in between sizes, so as the site recommends, I ordered up a size and wish that I hadn't. My mother, who is bigger than I am, has tried to use the sling with my son as well, and it seems big on her as well. The sling hangs considerably lower than pictured. The pocket of the sling is deep and has an excessive amount of fabric that surrounds the baby in the cradle position, making it difficult to get the baby out of (especially when sleeping). I have reserved writing a review for multiple months, as initially, I thought that perhaps my son was too small for the wrap, but even now that he is 4 months old and is able to support his head, the wrap seems big in not only the cradle position, but when he is on my hip as well. I am apprehensive about using the sling to hold the baby on my hip, for fear my son will slip as it seems to offer little support. The company's site offers multiple 'holds'/uses for the sling. When actually having the sling in your hands and experimenting with it, most of the holds end up being very similar, and those that are different lack feasibility in getting the baby in and out due to position and the very deep pocket. The sling is very light weight and seems to distribute weight better than some that I have tried. I'll give credit where credit is due and say that even encompassed with fabric and sunken into the pocket, my son seemed quite satisfied in the cradle hold as an infant. Now that he is bigger and more alert and aware, he does not enjoy not being able to see what is going on. I have experimented with the sling and recommend putting the tag farther back on your shoulder/back than the company recommends. It seems to work/fit better that way. I will continue to try this product with my son as he grows. I am interested to see if it will better accommodate him as he gets bigger. I would reserve recommendation of this product as of this point.

This was a gift but I inspected it before wrapping it up. Craftmanship not great. Looks okay for the price.

Baby does not like being in this sling. I will just use it to carry laundry....
Baby carriers are great for so many reasons. Wearing your baby lets you be close to them while also keeping your hands free. Baby backpacks and carriers are one of the safest ways to take your little one out because they keep your child right there with you and they are perfect for activities such as hiking, riding public transportation and gardening. Let us help you find a baby carrier that will complement your parenting style.
A recent trend in attachment parenting has left a new wave of parents considering the benefits of closeness and all-natural parenting techniques. Regardless of your parenting style and lifestyle choices, baby backpacks and carriers offer many benefits to both you and your child. Baby carriers such as baby slings, baby wraps and infant carriers are hands-free, and each can sooth your baby with closeness and gentle movement. Other baby gear, such as baby backpacks, is perfect for older children and can keep your mischievous toddler safe and entertained. Consider our list of the top five benefits when shopping for baby carriers, slings and other baby gear.
A pet carrier can serve as your furry friend's home-away-from-home when you're traveling or visiting relatives. More pet owners are taking their animals with them on short jaunts and lengthy vacations, and a pet carrier provides a familiar spot for your dog or cat to rest. A comfortable dog carrier is also beneficial for use at home. Pet carriers and strollers come in many sizes, but they should all offer one basic thing: protection for your beloved pet.
It's important to have a hands-free way to carry your baby, but with all the baby slings and baby carriersavailable, how do you know which is best for you and your little one? Baby slings and baby carriers both have the same basic function, but achieve it in different ways. Some parents will prefer a sling, while other parents will prefer a traditional baby carrier, or they may even choose to purchase both and use them for different times and purposes. Before you get swamped with all the baby gear options available, read the following points to help you decide if baby slings, baby carriers or both will best fit the needs of you and your baby.
A messenger bag has one wide strap and is worn over one shoulder, wrapping around your chest on one side and lower back on the other. Messenger bags resemble those used by postal carriers and other couriers, hence their name. Because of their styling, messenger bags can be a great alternative to a backpack, making it easier to carry large items or numerous items without straining your back or shoulders.

Not only will dad have new equipment to take as many pictures and videos of his new baby as he wants; he'll also love having a new gadget to figure out and play with. Baby carrier. Infant car seats are great for getting around town with your baby in a car, but there are times when an infant car seat is too bulky to carry while you're walking.

There are plenty of stylish designer diaper bags available for moms but what about dads? Most dads don?t want to carry around a women's diaper bag; get him a "dad bag" instead. There are many new masculine diaper bags on the market. These dad bags typically look more like standard backpacks or messenger bags but are designed with all of the handy compartments necessary for toting diapers, wipes, bottles and more. Masculine diaper bags will be a great hit with the new dad as he adjusts to life on the move with a little one. Parenting books. Many new dads are overwhelmed by the responsibilities of becoming a parent and would probably appreciate a little help understanding their new role.

These books make some of the best baby gifts for new dads by providing them with a resource to answer some of their many questions about parenthood and serve as a reference for future dilemmas.
