The Beco Gemini is a great all-purpose soft structured carrier for babies from newborn to about 18 months. It allows you to wear your baby from birth through toddlerhood in a single carrier. The Gemini is sleek, stylish and incredibly comfortable. A huge perk to the Beco Gemini is its ability to safely and comfortable hold your baby in a forward-facing position. Most forward-facing baby carriers don't support a baby's thighs, which puts all your baby's weight on the base of it's spine, compressing vertebrae with each step and bounce. Sleeping babies will definitely benefit from the high headrest in the Beco Gemini which comfortably cradles your baby's head eliminating neck discomfort.
The Beco Gemini is shorter and narrower in the body than the other carriers, and has no sleeping hood (just a headrest), so it's not ideal for use with toddlers, but it is a very good, comfortable, intuitive and easy-to-use carrier for newborns and younger babies.
Made in the USA and China (depends on print/colour).

I have little doubt that this baby carrier is the best one out there! My 6 week old baby loves it. It is sometimes the only thing that stops her from crying instantly! I could seriously go on and on about what a great buy this carrier is... I mean not only does it look really cool when its on, the organic cotton material is soft and cuddly, it's very comfy for me, it's easy to put on and off, and easy to wear over any type of clothing. My daughter feels totally secure in it, even though she was quite small when we first started using it (about 8.5 pounds). And I think we both love how close she feels to my body, since there is nothing in between baby and your chest. Of course I have only tried the front facing in position so far, but I can't wait to try the other positions when my baby is older.Would you recommend this product to a friend? Without hesitation!
This is so worth the extra money. I went through a few less ergonomic and cheaper carriers (bought second hand/given to me by friends) before I ordered this, and I completely don't regret spending the money. The only downside... and it is extremely minor for me since I live in northern Ontario... is that the fabric is padded and kind of warm. But this would only be a problem on the hottest days of summer, and its what makes it so comfortable. Also there is no sun protection for the baby in it, but that's the case with most carriers...I will just get us both big hats. Don't hesitate...it is as great as it looks! (Posted on 5/28/12)
