I was given this carrier as a gift from a friend who had used it for her son, and said it was good, but didn't feel comfortable for her.
I wore it shopping with my little girl when she was 8 weeks old, and I had to agree. The straps were only JUST long enough to go around my post pregnancy body (and I'm a larger lady to begin with), they sat at awkward spots, and to make it worse, there was no head support for my girl. Her head was rolling around inside the carrier and I had to leave shopping and head home because she did not like it one bit.
It was very difficult to figure out the first time I used it, and the second time I used it, I put a piece of cardboard behind her head to give her extra support, but it still was no where near comfortable enough.
I thanked my friend for the gift, but told her I've had to throw it out. She told me she should have done it herself and saved me the trouble. Best to know now though!
I've since bought myself a ring sling, and my little girl loves it.
