What we say about it...

Our son was one month old and at the beginning it appeared to be a fantastic option.  We even reviewed it within the week (as they ask you to) and gave it a great review.  However when I tried to write another review or amend the one I wrote on the site they wouldn't allow you to.

At first glance it looks great.  This carrier resembles the Ergo ergonomically designed but for half the cost.  For the newborn stage it seems to work well other than the pinching of the legs (will describe that more later)

I wore this carrier for 4 weeks during which time I discovered, though it looks like it could stand next to the Ergo after two weeks it started to fade literally and figuratively.

Walking I found that my back ached if wearing him for longer than an hour.  Once he reached about 15 pounds it was clear my back would be in trouble if we continued to wear him in this carrier.  The material faded in the sun after about 2 weeks of use.

On a positive note, it was easy to breastfeed my newborn son in this carrier.  I had no problems doing so and no one could tell I was feeding him when I was.

For the cost of the carrier you should expect more however it should not fade so easily in he sun, should give you adequate support and allow you to carry your baby for longer than an hour.  In the end I would not recommend this carrier to my friends.
