I got one of these as a shower gift and I thought I liked the idea of basically carrying my baby in a purse. I loved taking walks and wanted to walk with my baby, so I thought this was the perfect solution! But when it came time to actually put him in it, it was awkward to tuck him in there. I was always checking him to make sure he was breathing. If he were to turn is face to the right, he would suffocate, so I walked awkwardly trying to make sure that didn't happen. If he was laying flat on his back, his chin would fall to his chest in a way that looked incredibly uncomfortable. So I put it up, ordered a different type of carrier for a different company, and then a friend of mine posted on my Facebook page that the carrier she had gotten us both for our babies was recalled because babies were suffocating!! I was not surprised, but I cut it so no one else could use it and threw it away. I would not suggest that anyone buy this or ANY sling type baby carrier that has them lay on their back.
