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 only, so it is not completely tested yet, the age of the son does not allow yet, later I will check and review. It was delivered within 10 days. "thank for speedy delivery".
This is a very well made product; however, I returned it because you have to click the back closure and then put on overhead, followed by tighten straps unless you have someone with you to click back strap. It just wasn't an easy on off for me unit for me.
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!
