I purchased this for my 8 month old daughter. I had another carrier but she wasn't very comfortable in it and I noticed that her legs would turn purple after being in it, perhaps from her legs just dangling down. I tried this one out and took her to the grocery store with me and she seemed to enjoy it. She was happy, squealed and was excited to be out people watching. Her legs didn't turn purple and she moved them freely. I would recommend this carrier.
Carrier is very convenient, took off the load from the hands more than 70%. My son three months old so I could not test it completely, the age of the son does not allow yet. About the delivery, ordered from the USA promised to deliver in 7 days and it took 5 days only.
This is my fifth carrier and my favorite so far. We tried Ergo baby (didn’t fit my body well), Baby bjorn (bad for baby’s hips - legs just dangle unsupported), a ring sling (I like this one but it’s hard for me to adjust it and keep him in the right spot), and a JJ Cole Agility (I like this one too but it is uncomfortable for a long day as it puts the weight on my shoulders). This carrier is the best because it takes the weight to my hips, has great storage pockets, has multiple ways to wear, is easy for me to do myself, and he loves it. He is five months and it is perfect for facing in, facing out, and putting him on my back. (I can’t put him on my back alone yet, but I’m very comfortable putting him in the front myself.) The pockets are convenient and the quality is great!! I take this thing everywhere! I shopped a ton of reviews and I’m really happy I bought this one.
I have tried other hip seat carriers and other kind of baby carrier including the famous babybjorn. My older one does not like the babyjorn and cried immediately when him inside. We turned to use the hip seat and he was very happy with that. Our old hip seat has the biggest problem is there is almost no cushion for the seat and we have to put a small cushion pillow on top of it. We decide to order a new one this time for our coming baby. The one we received is very good quality! With thick cushion and the front cover seems to be breathable. The front cover is detachable so can be removed when needed!
