I don’t know how many baby carriers I tried out when I had Sadie but none of them suited me or Sadie. She nor I liked any that we tried, borrowed, bought or dreamt about. I always found she got too hot or it seems liked her little arms and legs were digging into the straps.
I wanted Crissy to have a nice one but had no idea which one to buy for her or tell her to look into. I was beyond thrilled to received a baby carrier for review from Belle Baby Carriers. It was the Belle Baby black organic carrier which retails for $109.95 from Belle Baby Carriers. It is actually the same carrier seen on Angelina Jolie in W magazine last year. I loved that it looked both chic and manly. Any dad would be proud to wear it. It is made with 100% organic cotton and hemp blended fabrics. It can be machine washed and lined dried which is awesome as well.
My sister loved it and has been using it since Gracie was a month old. Its not restricting in anyway and I love the fact that the baby can see and it not all nuzzled down behind the fabric. She said it was easy to put on by herself which is a bonus when you are home alone and need some free hands to do something. Gracie tends to get really hot easily and she seemed to stay cool and comfortable while in it. She never fussed to get out and the only time Crissy had to remove her was when she had a real big spit up and covered herself. She is a BIG spitter. It also has a removable head rest so that you can use the carrier both forward and inward facing. Its easy to put on and take off by yourself which is nice.
There are 12 different carriers to chose from in all different colours. This would make an excellent shower gift for the new mommy in your life.
