Beco Gemini Baby CarrierProduct Rating: Product Review (submitted on May 28, 2012):
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.
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!
