When go to the school, for carring my baby
Pensylvannia, Puerto Rico
I bought this carrier before my son was born. It was my intro to babywearing. I was nervous to use it for the first time and kind of intimidated by the long straps. After my son was born, I tried it around the house a few times. I couldn't get him to 'froggy' his legs as hey say. He didn't like it and he was a 10lb big baby boy so it wasn't because he was too small. The panel is very long and high which makes it hard for baby to look out. The shoulder straps were very bulky and padded which I thought would be a plus but it made it difficult to position them properly and stay put.
The Kozy carrier does not dissapoint! This style of carrier, called a Mei Tai, is amazingly comfortable and can be used for newborns to toddlers and all ages in between. You can have your baby on your back, front, or even on your hip - which makes it so versatile. The Kozy is made from very durable, yet comfortable fabrics, and the choice of patterns is great! I found that the straps and body material soften up with use and become so deliciously comfy over time. Your Kozy also gets shipped to you in a stylish tote bag that you can use for carrying all those last-minute baby items that you simply *can not* forget. The Kozy allows you to have your hands free and your baby comfortable to nap, nurse, or just be content to be near you. Kozy's always carry a good reasale value, and their customer service is excellent. I'm sure if more parents tried the Kozy rather than those other mainstream carriers, they would be amazed at the ease and comfort of wearing their babies!

The Kozy Carrier Mei Tai is a great carrier to use with newborns up to toddlers. I have used this carrier both with my son, who is 3and 35 lbs, and my daughter, who is 1 month old and 10 lbs and have been very comfortable each time. This carrier is great because it can be used for a front carry as well as a back carry, which makes it extremely versatile. It is also an easy carrier to learn to use and easy to put on in public. I also really like that the carrier is made in the USA and made with quality materials so that way it will last for years and years. It is also extremely easy to breastfeed in this carrier and due to its width, it provides more coverage if you are nursing in public.

I received the Kozy carrier as gift when I was pregnant with my third child. I like that the kozy carrier is very easy to use, I can wrap my baby up tight without anyone's assistance. My only complaint is that while the fabric is very pretty, it's stiff and almost seems like it would be uncomfortable on the baby's bare skin.
The Kozy Carrier is a mei tai style carrier. This is definitly the go to carrier for a pregnant baby wearer. I got this carrier when I was five months pregnant with my second child. I was still wanting to wear my then 17 month old son but my other carriers, a ring sling and a wrap, came across my ever expanding belly. With the Kozy Carrier I wore my son on my back up to the day I went into labor. When my second was born he did not like being in the ring sling or the wrap but absolutely loved the Kozy. He is now almost a year old and it is still his favorite way to be worn. The Kozy is so easy to use. The company's website has very easy to follow instructions on several different kinds of holds. Another plus is the fact that my husband who is a foot taller and 100 pounds heavier can use the same Kozy Carrier I use. He loves wearing our kids as much as I do and it is great that there is no need to adjust or have two different carriers.
There are a LOT of great mei tais on the market right now. But, if you are on a tight budget and can only buy one, and you want it to last you from the time your child is born until they are too heavy to be worn, buy a Kozy. Kozy uses stellar materials, and their straps are soft and sturdy. Their sewing is always perfect, so you don't have to worry about your child's safety when wearing them in a Kozy. Kozy's are big bodied mei tais, so if you are using it with a newborn, check out their web site for tips. You can roll the body of the mei tai down at the bottom, where the waist straps are, before you put it on. Kozy's are big enough that most newborns will be comfortable with their legs froggied inside, but if you happen to have a child that needs their legs to be out, you can tie a string around the bottom of the carrier to cinch it up for their legs to be out. Kozy's are made to take a beating, be run through the washing machine, and come out just as functional and trustworthy as they went in. They have a very reasonable price tag compared to many others on the market, and you get your money's worth out of these. The body is big enough to accommodate a larger baby or toddler without them leaning backward and hurting your back, and the curved top of the mei tai, or the headrest, is sturdy enough to keep their little head from flopping backward when they fall asleep.
In my search for the perfect baby carrier to replace my Moby and Ultimate Baby Wrap, when they began to sag and not support baby... I purchased a Kozy Mei Tai carrier. The Kozy has nice wide padded straps and a durable but super soft and comfy canvas fabric. You can wear baby in a front carry, back carry, and on your hip, from even a young baby, but I found it best for my 7 month old. The Kozy has a tall middle piece, but you can flip the top down if needed. It's not as easy to nurse in as the Moby (at least it wasn't for me), but it is possilbe. I liked it better than the Ergo for rainy days, as I could easily put it on over my coat without needing to readjust traps and buckles and put my daughter in a front carry. for a back carry it was a bit trick on my own. The long straps allow for a wide variety of options with strap placement so that you can get a comfortable position and vary it so shoulders and neck stay pain free. The long straps although helpful, are a bit of a challenge as they do drag on the and the ends fell in a puddle on more than one occasion- putting it on before going out on a rainy day helped with this.
I bought a Kozy when my second son was born. I was looking for something that would distribute his weight better than a ring or pouch sling and that I could wear on my front and back. The Kozy carrier was reasonably priced and had a lot of different print options. The Kozy is easy to adjust and put on. There is a definite learning curve when it comes to getting baby positioned correctly. When my son was a newborn someone told me the trick was to bounce up and down while tightening the top straps. It really helped make the carrier comfortable. I was able to wear him for hours. I also used the carrier for a newborn high back carry. It was a little scary putting him way up high, but because of where he was positioned I was able to see his head and no he was safe and breathing. As he got older I was able to use the carrier as a regular back carrier. I didn't find the back carry as comfortable as the front carry, but I used it for my older son on occasion too. I didn't have a kozy with a front pocket, but there is a small pocket on the waist strap that is good for keys or a cellphone. Overall, the kozy is a great carrier. It is soft, packs smaller than an Ergo, adjusts easily, and looks great too.
I have tried lots of carriers and absolutely love our Kozy Carrier. We have a wonderful black and white print with a pocket on the front, and it goes with everything. Every time I have our son in the Kozy people stop me and ask me what type of carrier it is. Our son is a big guy, 23 pounds, 31 inches at 8 months, and I can carry him for hours with no discomfort. It is very easy to nurse him while wearing him, and it is very discreet, too! Nobody can tell what I am doing! I love the versatility of being able to comfortably wear him on my back or front, and it is quite easy to switch from one position to the other. I was nervous to strap him onto my back alone for the first time, but no problem! I used my cars windows (just reflective enough) to see what I was doing. The strap pocket is nice for small things, and the straps are nicely padded for comfort. I am 5'8" and my husband is 6'6" and we can both use this carrier with ease. Kelly's website is very helpful, too!
