This carrier is nothing like i expected.first off it is very uncomfortable to wear and it hurts rather bad. again this could be due to the fact that i have a rather large child. at 3 months he is 16 pounds! It is also very hard to put on by myself, when i have tried this i felt as if he was leaning to the side and he wasnt put in evenly. so i always have to have some sort of assitance. there also is this ring on the back that i guess is meant for even weight distrabution, but it kind of just digs in my back and hurs quite bad. and i really wanted to use one but now that my son is so old i don't want to buy a moby wrap what i heard so many good things about. but it is rather cheap so i guess you get what you pay for.
