I really like this carrier. I have used this carrier with both of my boys and still use it with my 15 month old. I started using this carrier when my babies were a few months old. I really like how comfortable it is for the parent and baby. My husband has even used it - awesome!

Safety
There are so many ways to adjust this carrier so that you, the parent, feel completely comfortable with how secure your baby is. I like that the buckles have 3 pressure points and all 3 need to be used at the same time for the buckle to release.

Baby's Comfort
My babys have slept while in this carrier mutliple times. It definitely makes shopping, walks and other errands easier.

Parents' Comfort
There are so many things about this carrier that are comfortable. Not all of the weight and pressure from baby is in one area. The weight is evenly distributed between your shoulder blade area and hip area. I also like that there is so much padding but it doesn't feel bulky.

Ease of Use
This carrier can sometimes be difficult to put on by yourself - especially securing the top buckle that clips in between the parents shoulder blades. Adjusting the straps can be a little tricky, but once you get them to a comfortable position they hold that spot well. This carrier can be used by slender parents as well as curvy parents.

Design
I like how this carrier can be front or back. I personally have never used it for carrying on my back, but having the option is a plus. There is so much padding for baby and parent. I always look forward to wearing my baby!

Durability
Our carrier was given to us by a friend who used it until her son out grew it. We have used this carrier with both of our boys and now my best friend is using the carrier for her newest addition. Between all of the washings and transfering from family to family, this carrier hasn't shown any signs of wear and tear yet!

I've used the Infantino Front 2 Back carrier since my youngest was born, who is now three months old.  The carrier is comfortable and easy enough to use, though it is a bit of a pain getting it adjusted the first time, and my husband and I don't share the carrier because it's too big of a deal to adjust it from my size to his and back again.  Getting the waist strap adjusted is the hardest part in my opinion, though I think you could take it off in a pinch.

Putting the carrier on and getting it off takes some practice, especially getting the back clip in properly.  I was once stuck in the carrier because I didn't put the buckle in properly, and had to use a pair of pliers to get out of the carrier.  Just be careful when you put the carrier on, and you shouldn't have the problem.  This has only happened to me once, so I really think that it was a fluke.

My child likes to ride around in it, both awake and asleep, and it makes getting things done a lot easier.  I like to wear this while grocery shopping, since my toddler rides in the cart, and it keeps him happy so I can shop without issues.

Overall, I think the design and comfort is good, especially for the price.  My son and I enjoy using the carrier, and it has made shopping and doing simple tasks much easier and enjoyable.

Comments about infantino Front2Back Baby Carrier:

I love this baby carrier. Presonally I think its the best one yet! I bought it two years ago when I had my 1st baby. My experience with it was really great I had no back or shoulder pain and best of all my baby fell in love with it. He would want to be in it all the time from when he woke up untill he was dead asleep. Then I passed it to my sister for her baby and they seem to love it too. And now that im pregnant again i look forward to having it. NO MORE BACK OR SHOULDER PAIN FROM CARRING A BABY!

Safety
The safety is excelent! I love the way it has the velcrow and the buckle, so I know that my baby safe and secure.

Baby's Comfort
My baby falls asleep in the carrier and when I take him out hes' not sweaty or hot what so ever.

Parents' Comfort
I'll tell you that its really comfotable beacuse the shoulder straps are padded and soft.

Ease of Use
The first time I used it I was able to put it on with ease.

Durability
The durability of the baby carrier is great! It looks like I just took it out of the box and i bought it two years ago!!!!

great product for parents!

By 

from Chapel Hill, NC

Comments about infantino Front2Back Baby Carrier:

We received this baby carrier as a baby shower gift! It was not the carrier I originally wanted, but since we got it as a gift we kept it, and we actually really enjoyed it! Our baby always seemed comfortable in it, in fact he fell asleep in it the majority of the time. It did put a slight strain on my shoulders after wearing it for a long time, but I think that would probably happen with almost any carrier. He was able to fit in it from newborn until a little over one before it got too heavy for me to hold him in it. We took it on a hike with us and my husband sweats a lot, it was really easy to just throw in the washing machine. We loved that feature. We look forward to using it with our second child that is on the way!

Durable, Comfortable, Flexible...

By 

from Hopkins, MI

Comments about infantino Front2Back Baby Carrier:

We have owned and used this carrier for 3 months, since our daughter was born, and have no complaints at all about this product.

Starting when our baby was brand new we used this carrier for various reasons, including outings, errands, housework and comforting and cuddling. 

I love that this carrier is so versatile.  At this point our baby is transitioning from riding on the front facing parent to riding on the front facing outward.  Both positions cradle the baby safely, provide lots of support for body and head, and are comfortable for the baby and parent.  I have worn the carrier for 4 hours straight with no complaint from my back or shoulders, carrying a 12 pound baby.  The materials are very breathable, baby does not get hot and sweaty.  Straps are adjustable for different body builds for both baby and parent, providing comfort.  Shoulder and waist straps are padded and do not dig in.  It is easy enough for one person to put on, strap and place baby into (but be extra careful with baby if you do this!)  I absolutely love this carrier!

DOn't waste your money

By 

from Lubbock, TX

Comments about infantino Front2Back Baby Carrier:

I registered for and received the Infantino Front 2 Back Baby carrier as a baby shower gift. I unwrapped it and threw away the packaging. It taught me never to throw packaging away before I have tried the product. The first time I used it I had the hardest time trying to get it buckled. The buckles just wouldn't go easily. My husband got it buckled for me. The second time I used it I finally got it buckled after much trouble. When I went to take it off the buckles would not come apart. I ended up taking the baby out, loosening the straps out and slipping it off. Luckily, I am fairly slender or that wouldn't have worked! I worked for probably an hour trying to get the buckles unfastened. And then my husband worked at it. He couldn't get it undone either. I finally had to CUT the buckles off go to Hobby Lobby, buy new buckles and sew them on. HUGE hassle. I would have just taken it back but I didn't have a receipt or the packaging.

Design
The buckles mentioned above.

Durability
I am still using this with my second baby now.

Great quality, comfortable, durable

By 

from Sandy, OR

Comments about infantino Front2Back Baby Carrier:

I got this from my sister who had used it with two of her children.  That means this carrier is going on it's third child and it is still in superb condition.  It's super easy to wear and figure out.  It fits just front-facing as back-facing and is just as comfortable for both mom and baby either way.  It is sturdy and easily holds up to the recommended weight.  There are plenty of straps that are easy to figure out, but also make you feel very secure in that your baby is not going to fall or be injured in any way. 

 

Would definitely recommend this carrier for someone who wants a great carried but doesn't want to spend a fortune on it!  The price is great, it is clearly very durable and it's a nice simple black and gray (at least the one I have) so that even the husband can wear it!  (If he's anything like my husband, who doesn't want to have to wear or carry anything too 'girly'!)

Makes so many things easier!

By 

from New Haven, MI

Comments about infantino Front2Back Baby Carrier:

The Infantino Front2Back Baby Carrier was a great buy for me! One day my son would start crying every time I put him down... He would fall asleep in my arms after I rocked him for a little bit, but as soon as I would lay him down, he would start crying again. At the time, he was two weeks old and weighed about nine pounds. I remembered that I bought the Infantino Front2Back Baby Carrier and decided to try it. It worked perfectly. My son Emmett fell asleep in it and I got to get a few things done around the house. The Infantino Front2Back Baby Carrier supported his head perfectly and it is very comfortable for me to wear! The shoulder straps are padded and the part your baby sits in is cushioned too! The fabrics used allow air flow, so your baby will not get too warm. The Infantino Front2Back Baby Carrier was very easy for me to adjust and it fits me wonderfully. I would recommend the Infantino Front2Back Baby Carrier to anyone looking for a baby carrier!!

Infantino Front2Back Baby Carrier is comfy

By 

from New York, NY

Comments about infantino Front2Back Baby Carrier:

I had this carrier on my baby registry and received it as a gift.I love this carrier because I feel comfortable when I have to go out to the store with my 2 month old baby. I have only used it with the baby placed in the front but so far I love that she is snug and safe as if in mommys arms.

perfect way to keep your hands free

By 

from Beatrice, NE

Comments about infantino Front2Back Baby Carrier:

When we took our first overseas travel with our son we knew that we need a carrier so we can both have our hands free. We looked online, searched in stores and after few weeks of "just browsing" we decided to buy this Infantina Front2Back model. It is true that the first use seems too complicated, my husband and I both kind of caught our hands trying to adjust strapps but after we figured it out, everything was ok. It was a real blessing having this carrier consodering that we traveled for 16 hours and switched 3 planes....  But I also remember that after we arrived at the destination my husband complained of back pains for almost a week! My son is a pretty big kid (he was almost 32 pounds at his first birthday) and carry around all that weight is not very comfortable. So I would definitley not recomend it for big kids, it is going to hurt the parents in the long run. But for the average kid, I think it is perfect to use when you shop or do some outdoor activities.

Not the best quality

By 

from Columbia, MO

Comments about infantino Front2Back Baby Carrier:

I did a lot of research before buying a carrier for our son after he was born. This carrier got pretty good reviews so I was a little surprised when after using it like 3 times the strap was already starting to tear. I didn't pay that much for this product, but I was expecting it to last longer than 3 times! I was not too impressed with the quality of the product.  I didn't like how long it took us to figure out how to put it on. I also felt like it was too tight on my baby's legs. With that being said, I think it does have some good features that I liked before it tore. I liked the lumbar support thing, it made it seem more secure and helped give support. It was a good price, although we certainly did not get our money's worth out of the one we purchased. It was pretty comfortable, but only for a short time. I liked the front feature better, than the back one because when my son was in the back it was hard for him to see.
