“ Brand: Samsonite / Carrier Type: Framed / Carrier Position: Front „
I was given this carrier shortly after the birth of my son. It comes in red or black and I was given the black one which has a nice contempary pattern of purple and cream circles on it. This carrier can be used to face both inwards and outwards. The instructions are very easy to follow however the first time I put the carrier on I found it really difficult to adjust the straps so that they were comfortable. It resulted in taking it on and off, I think it's because the clasps were so stiff. I did get my partner to help me in the end. Once on, there is an insert to use when baby is facing inwards to support their back and neck or just take the insert out to face forwards. I really liked this carrier but it was a pain if the LO fell asleep whilst fron facing as you are supposed to turn them around! Very difficult to get him out, put insert in, put him back in all whilst he is sleeping! It was also difficult to get baby in and out if he was wearing a bulky snowsuit.
It was comfortable when on for about 20minutes but any longer and you could really feel the weight of baby. He loved facing outwards so he could see where we were going but he also liked facing inwards so he could sleep on my chest.
A lightweight carrier that straps on effortlessly. Features a lumbar support for mom and a removable pod for the support small babies need.
