Review of the LILLEbaby COMPLETE 6-in1 Baby Carrier
**This item was sent to me in exchange for an honest review**
First, let me start off by giving a little bit of background. I have been carrying my children in carriers, slings, and wraps for about 5 years. Even though I have tried different things for babywearing, I tend to stick with wraps and slings. I think that is because most carriers cause discomfort when I wear them. Also because it takes me more time to put on a carrier than use a wrap or a sling.
When I was given the opportunity to try out a carrier with back support and comfy straps, I jumped with excitement. I thought that maybe this would convert me.
The shipping was very fast and the packaging was nice. It wasn’t all dented up from shipping either, so that was nice as well. I opened the box to find such a great looking carrier. I believe that’s when I started falling in love with it. It was so soft and yet so sturdy. I was anxious to try it out. I read through the instructions and watched a few videos to get the hang of it before trying it out.
It was time to try it out. Here is where it got tricky. There seemed to be so many straps. I felt like I was skipping a step or adding a new one to the process. Of course, with all of that fumbling around, the baby wasn’t too happy with me. Once I got it on and made sure it was secure, I really enjoyed it. It seemed a little bulky compared to my wraps, but it wasn’t too bad. The baby even fell asleep while I was wearing him.
The carrier is definitely a win. While I am not certain how often I will use it, I am sure that it will have it’s place in my carrier line up. However, it will take a lot of practice before I can use it on the go.
By the way, my husband liked it way better than the wraps and slings.
