Style: "I loved the modern, sleek design of the carrier."

"It was a little tricky to use the first time, but once I figured it out, it was very easy to put on and off. Plus, I could put the carrier on by myself, which was important to me."

Comfort: "I wore the carrier for an hour and found it very comfortable. I used it to take walks around my neighborhood, put laundry away and do other activities around my house."

"It was easy to put on the carrier and get my baby in and out, especially compared to other carriers I've used."

What It's Missing: "I wish the main carrier color came in something other than black."

Bonus: "The carrier's style and color works for either myself or my husband."
