When searching for a carrier for my little man, high prices and inconvenient weight restrictions crossed many a carrier off of the list. Why couldn’t someone create a carrier that would fit my tot when he was a newborn and when he grew into a toddler? What if he didn’t like being carried in a certain position and the carrier I chose only offered that position as an option? Beco Baby Carrier solved these issues of mine with a simple term: four-in-one. (Read: more bang for your buck.) Beco’s Gemini is a 4-in-1 carrier. That means it can carry in four positions: on the front facing inward, on the front facing outward, on the hip, and on the back. So you can figure out what works best for your little one without having to purchase and try multiple carriers. Also, because it fits babies from 7 to 35 pounds, there is no need to purchase an infant insert or a second carrier for your newborn. But it’s not just the obvious marketing points that make the Gemini such a gem. It ranks high on the comfort scale, for both mom and babe. With a wide, padded waist belt, baby’s weight is distributed across your hips making the extra weight much more bearable. With wide, padded shoulder straps, you won’t find yourself with uncomfortable, sore shoulders. With a wide, completely padded center panel, baby is cozied up to your torso snugly yet gently. The Gemini even has extra built-in head support (also padded) that can be folded down and secured once your babe gains full control of head head and neck. My little guy also loves to use the head support for napping while I’m wearing him. The Gemini is also a breeze to use. It has one clip at the shoulders/chest and one at the waist. Simply secure the waist belt, place one strap over your shoulder, position your tot, place the other strap on your shoulder, and slip the shoulder straps together. Once in, you can snuggle your babe in the carrier by pulling on one end of the shoulder straps. Also, if you find yourself struggling, the online video instructions are incredibly helpful.
To top it off, you don’t have to sacrifice your sense of style to carry your babe. The Gemini comes in super cute prints appropriate for babies and mamas. I would absolutely recommend this carrier to anyone looking to maximize bang for their buck. Price: $129 To buy: becobabycarrier.com
