I have received this carrier from Infantino to facilitate my review. First of all I was really excited to try thos carrier as I had been thinking about getting a forward facing one. When I unpackaged it, the design looked a little different from other carriers as the top buckle could slide up & down (supposedly) to accommodate the best positioning on your back. After I got my LO all set up in the carrier, we went for a walk. About 10min into our walk, I started getting a twinge. So I had my husband adjust the top buckle to see if that would aide my discomfort. He wasn't able to adjust it at all. So I tried adjusting the straps & to my avail, that too did not change the ever growing twinge in my back. I took it off & just carried my daughter. A couple days later I thought I'd try it again, only this time try the forward facing option. I could not figure it out! I tried looking it up on YouTube, and was unsuccessful at making sure I got everything where it needed to be. I gave up. I have come to the conclusion that this carrier doesn't work for someone of my height & short torso (I am 5' 4" & of petite build). This would be better suited for someone who is taller or at least has a longer torso.
