I am a huge believer in babywearing, not only for my own convenience, but for the calming affect it has on baby among other benefits. Before having Liam I did a ton of research on different baby carriers (there are SO many options)! On average, I wear Liam about 3 hours a day, sometimes more if we are out and about or he is fussy. We hardly ever use a stroller, because he prefers the carrier.
We started off with the LILLEbaby Complete Organic Carrier and loved it, but had some issues with the fabric tearing where the neck-support piece snaps to the carrier (I believe because of the softness of the organic cotton). However, LILLEbaby is awesome, and they replaced it for us and we’ve been super happy and have zero issues with the new LILLEbaby All Seasons carrier.
LILLEbaby Complete All Seasons Review
Things we love about the LILLEbaby Complete All Seasons Baby Carrier:
- No infant insert needed – the LILLEbaby Complete can be worn from newborn to toddler (45 lb)
- Offers 6 different carrying options – facing out is Liam’s absolute favorite!
- Comes with lumbar support – super helpful as baby gets bigger
- The new All Seasons has a small pocket for your phone/ID (my biggest complaint about the first LILLEbaby we had), and the front flap zips open to allow for more air-flow in warmer climates (like Southern California or Mexico as seen in the pictures below)
Liam is a back breaker at 7 months and about 23 lbs., wearing 12 to 18 month clothes, and he and I are totally comfortable in this carrier. We primarily use it facing out, but we also use it facing in when he is tired. I just put him in, turn on his SleepySounds app, put the hood up and he is out within a few minutes.
We’ve worn the Lillebaby hiking, on hundreds of walks, through the airport, and during cross-country flights. It has been a lifesaver! Most likely when you started thinking about getting a soft-structured carrier (SSC) all of your friends recommended the Ergo. Yes, it is one of the most popular SSCs out there, but in my opinion, it leaves much to be desired. I think the best thing about the Lillebaby is the versatility it offers – it can be worn several different ways throughout different stages of your little ones life. I honestly can’t imagine life without it. When we had issues with our first one, I considered buying a different brand, but couldn’t find anything that offered what the LILLEbaby does, and I’m so glad we gave the All Seasons style a chance.
I honestly don’t have any complaints about the LILLEbaby Complete All Seasons carrier. It is hands down my favorite carrier, and makes babywearing super comfortable at any stage in any weather!
The LILLEbaby All Seasons retails at $139.99 and can be found online at Amazon.com.
What is your favorite baby carrier, and why? I always love to hear what other parents are using and loving!
