I bought a Beco Butterfly II when i was pregnant with DS2. I was on the look out for a buckle carrier, but i wanted it to bepretty too. 

After much deliberation i chose the Butterfly. When i received it i was very happy. It was pretty,but really really easy to put on. It came with a DVD with instructions. 

I use it whenever i go shopping, i even used it when travelling on the plane recently, i was on 7 planes all up and it came in handy. I would just strap DS2 to me (not during the flight) and it left my hands free for all the inevitable bags. 

I would highly recommend the Beco Butterfly II. I have a "river" design. I get comments whereever i go :)

I have a Beco Butterfly 2 for use with my 9 week old. It has taken her a while to grow into liking a carrier and is only just getting big enough now. It is a good carrier overall. The main problem is that there are just too many adjustments to make to get a good fit and so it is very difficult to getting it feeling right. It also cuts in badly under the armpits and needs more padding along here. I am a plus size Mama and it fits well, where as I would need an extra hip strap for something like an Ergo. The Beco uses organic cotton which is great, and is thick and looks hardwearing. The hood is a nice wide one which is detachable. We never really used the newborn insert as DD is very tall. The main difference in this carrier is the Y panel between the bub and the wearer. This makes it infinitely easier to put bub on your back and pass between wearers. But it also means you cant have any direct skin to skin and for me it is impossible to breastfeed in. Machine washable and lightweight.
