Has anyone tried this baby carrier? Reviews look good:

No, I wouldn't. Firstly because they advocate face-out carrying in a stretchy wrap, which most babywearing consultants will tell you is a bad idea as it's almost impossible to get a carry which is ergonomic ally comfortable for the baby, and secondly because they don't rule out back-carrying in it, which again most baby-wearing consultants would class as downright dangerous with a stretchy. If a company isn't able to advocate best-practice babywearing to sell their product I wouldn't buy from them.

There are loads of reputable stretchy wraps for around the same price point - look at Hana or Moby wraps for example.

Also, if you read the good reviews, they could basically be good reviews for any stretchy wrap - nothing special about this one.

What Quod said with bells on.

Get yourself to a sling library.

I have a stretchy wrap, I love it. We are just moving on to a woven now. I love carrying and would thoroughly recommend it however I wouldn't buy that wrap simply for the dreadful example pictures they use- the way that baby is positioned is bad for it's hips and back.
