    breastfeeding is possible in itß

    I've read alot of reviews on these and some say they can or can't breastfeed in these. I laid my 2 mo old in it sideways fully supported and i was able to breastfeed him while he was in it. But I did not have him in there in any of the positions they show to carry baby. And I do not think it would work to carry him around in it the way in had him but when I breastfeed I stack myself with pillows to help support the head legs and my arms. This helped support his body and head while he fed and I sat down and of course braced him this did all the work my pillows do only better and much easier. I wasn't bogged down by pillows he wasn't able to push off my breast or fight out of his swaddler. He often gets fussy and pulls or pushes off while feeding. Sometimes it's hard to insure he is getting a good meal. This kept his head lvl and body tight and secure. I was just added support while he ate. Best feeding we've had yet!

    Mom

    I bought this carrier just to try it and to see if it would come in handy in my trip to Disney world will it did. I use for all four parks. My baby was super happy in it. I carry him facing forward and facing out. I was also able to breastfeed (cradle) my baby in it as I walk around the parks, it also gave me privacy as I breastfeed my baby. The size that was recommended for me is a size med but I got a large because baby and me felt more comfortable in it, he was 2 months old. One more final thing you must use the sling that comes with carrier to give baby that extra support to hold him up, I always use mine on his butt and tie around my waist, make sure not to tie on baby legs. This item does not let you chose size, but if you look in Specifications box and go down and look in features you can see what size your buying.

    Good for 2+ mo. olds

    I got this "wrap" as an alternative to the actual thing since I could slip it on and adjust it just the same. Like someone else noted, it is not good for long newborns. My baby was 21.5" and 8 lbs and the newborn position just didn't work for him, the way it cross crosses didn't support his fragile neck without cramming his legs. He's now 8 weeks old, but is holding his head up for periods of time and is 25" and 12 lbs so I place him straddled, face in with the sash tied around his back and I am in love with this. It holds him tight to me, soothes him, and I can even bend over with him. I slip the right side over his head to keep it from falling back and he sleeps while I work and it's a win-win. I am 5"7" tall and 165 and I am wearing a large fairly comfortably. I normally wear medium shirts in women and large in junior-ish clothes. I am quite busty though, so I think how tight it is is mostly because of that. I do feel like there's enough room a larger person could wear this comfortably still. The fabric is really soft and quite stretchy. I wouldn't rely on this for tiny, weak newborns though, it just isn't good until their strong enough to be in the straddle.

    Love love love this carrier

    My son was born on Christmas Day 2014 and I ordered this carrier and my son is 12 days old and he fits so cozy in it and I love it it's a must buy and I like that it goes in a shirt and there is no need to tie anything

    Size

    I ordered this item for my sister in law and when it came in the mail it said size large. It did not give me an option on size when I ordered it and large is too big for my petite sister in law. I was only disappointed because it did not give me the option. I don't know the terms of returning it so I'm sure if I could exchange it for a smaller size it would be better.

    Love it

    Everyone who sees me carrying my baby loves it and calls it the kangaroo pouch. I have the medium size. Fits perfect for me (weight 170, bra size 38C) My baby is 3 weeks old and loves it when I carry her with this carrier. Perfect for her to listen to my heart beat.

    Love it!

    Easy to use. I was worried about not able to put my daughter in it by myself but so far no problems. Makes shopping and housework a lot easier!

    not bad

    It seems to run a bit larger then advertised (the online sizes said a large worked for a woman size 14-16). So I still feel the need to put my hand behind her back when I lean forward. Other then that it is easy to put on and is comfortable for both of us. My daughter is only 3mos so I think as she gets older/bigger the size of the carrier issue will resolve itself. Overall a good carrier.

    Not for big and long babies

    My son was born a nine pound baby and he was 21 inches. At two months, he is now 15LBS and 25inches. We were only able to use this twice before he was uncomfortable in the newborn position. He's the size and length of a six month old so he should be in a different position but he's only two months and still needs some head support. It worked well and was comfortable the two times we used it but if your baby is long as a newborn then it isn't ideal.

    Don't waste your money!

    If you have big boobs and a big baby this will not work for you. I got the largest size available and me and my baby were both like uhhhhmmmm NO this is too close and not comfy at all!. If you have small boobs and a small baby go for it!
