To be honest, I wasn't interested in getting a baby carrier, however once the little once arrived I found him to want to be close to me all the time, making it impossible to do anything, therefore after reading a number of reviews I decided to by this carrier when my son was a few months old. To be honest it was a bit expensive, however was a life saver as I was able to put him in it and my hands were free to carry on with other things. The carrier itself is great, and lightweight and comfortable. The material helps keeps the baby cool and it can be used facing you or facing outwards, which I personally think is really important. Once you have managed to adjust the straps for you and have put in on, it is quite esay to put the baby in and out - the only thing I found was if the baby was screaming, I would get my self stressed and it took alot long to sort it out putting the carrier on. I took it everywhere with me incase my little one decided he didn't want to be in his pushchair or just simply wanted to be close to me. The only problem I occurred with this is was it gave me a back ache if I used it for long periods of time, however I think this was because I hadn't managed to adjust the straps properly. Overall I used it until my baby was 9 months, I probably could have used it longer, but he was getting bigger and I was struggling with my back.
