Bought this online, because it can be worn 4 different ways as my son gets older. We needed something my husband would be willing to wear too. It also had a great sale price and free in store pickup option. It is easy to put on. I watched a YouTube video on how to wear it prior to purchasing. I do wish there were added saftey features (such as a loop), just in case the clips fail. The top part where my son's head sits for the "facing in" position is more curved than I thought it would be. I am also 5'2", and while it sits ok on me and I can kiss the top of his head, tightening the straps to lift him higher does not seem to work very well. They actually seem to tighten the area around his thighs more. I would be careful of that so your child isn't uncomfortable. It is nice it comes with the detachable bib, I thought that was a "sold separately" item. The material is soft. While the carrier does what it is supposed to, I find that it is better suited for out of the house use. Clips and straps seem like too much going on if you use it around the house. I plan on purchasing a wrap for at home so both my son and I are more comfortable. I'm happy with my purchase overall, and I am excited to use the other positions when he gets a little older.
