Rated 5 out of 5 by nimarang83 A great buy...
I purchased this product from this retailer because I was told in my Childbirth Preparation Class about the benefits of wearing your baby. I didn't want a regular sling carrier, and the parts and accessories required for a plus size lady to carry a newborn in a front "backpack" style carrier would have been out of my price range.
I am so happy with this product. I recommend watching the videos online and visiting the product manufacturer's website before purchasing if you haven't made up your mind yet.
This product is 5.5 meters of fabric. Yes, that is a lot of fabric. However, that means that if you are plus size, it will still fit you comfortably before you lose all the baby weight and it won't be a huge issue to go up or down in sizes. It also comes with a reusable carrying pouch, making it no bigger than a rolled up sweater when you need to go on a road trip or store it. It isn't too warm, either. I usually wear mine with the baby in it, but when I take him out to nap or change or feed, I don't find that I get too warm. Also, yes, like anything else it takes practice, so you might want to borrow a baby doll or something and try it on/out before you attempt to put a screaming newborn in it. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase and would (and do) recommend it. An excellent buy for this price!
