Baby wraps are great if you have the time to deal with loose straps and are comfortable with a greater learning curve, but I needed something with simple buckles and adjustable straps that wouldn't hurt my back after wearing it all day. Prior to the Pikkolo, I had a Peanut Shell sling (which is very easy, but hurt my back) and an Infantino soft structure carrier (hurt my back AND had straps that easily tangled). I'd also tried the Becco Butterfly to determine what works best for me.

The Pikkolo is structured the same as the Mei Tei wrap (both made by Cat Bird Baby), but the Pikkolo has easy buckles and straps for us moms who need the ease of using a carrier. I chose the Pikkolo over the Becco because of the carrying options- front, back, outward facing & hip.

The Pikkolo doesn't hurt my back, I have ease of use without any additional help (a must for a single parent!), and it has versatile carries which will come in handy as my son grows.

I LOVE this carrier! I have a Bjorn Air carrier and it was killing my shoulders with my 15lb baby. He wants to be carried a lot and my arms have been tired and also I can't get much of anything done. SO, after much research I bought this carrier. I tried an Ergo and it was just not that comfortable for me and felt big and bulky. Also, I couldn't do the back strap by myself which was a huge negative. I am a stay at home Mom and need to be able to use this during the day - not just weekends. For reference I am 5'5" and about 130lbs. I didn't actually buy the black, but bought "Whitney" print from another site - it is very pretty and gender neutral. Frogmama.com I was afraid the black would be too hot in the summer and when I ordered it was on backorder through Amazon anyway. I also got a better price through the other site and she included the optional support belt with my order at no additional cost.

Anyway, so far I've used the hip carry and front carry with great success. Both are very comfortable and my 4 month old seems to be very at ease as well. For a recent family gathering I wore him for several hours with no strain or tiredness. Please note though: you need the additional support belt that goes with this for extended wear with out the baby getting heavy. It helps to transfer all the weight off your shoulders and to your hips instead. He took a great nap while I walked around visiting with everyone in a very loud environment. Once my son is a little bigger (he's 4 months right now) we'll be trying out the back carry. I am trying to stay away from doing much front - facing out carry just because that isn't as easy to distribute the weight and I don't want him to get used to it so he isn't as cooperative in the more ergonomic positions.

I absolutely LOVE this pack! I've had it for just over a month now, and it gets used every day. Sometimes multiple times during the day. Learning to use it can be a bit complicated, but it's not difficult once you get it down. My 3 month old hates being in his stroller or car seat, so I carry this pack with me everywhere. It's his main mode of transportation when he's not in the car. Originally I was given a Jeep front carrier, but that hurt my back and shoulders. I've had two back surgeries and deal with a lot of back pain already. This carrier has the hip belt, which is a must for me. It's much better on your back and shoulders. Plus, I like the fact there is nothing between me and him. He is securely held in waist belt, and then pressed up against me. Since my son always falls asleep in his carrier (front carry, facing in), it makes it easy to remove the pack after we get home. I can even just lay down on the sofa, unbuckle and slide out everything, and then he can nap right there with me!

He isn't quite big enough for the back carry yet, but I have practiced putting the carrier on that way. It is a little more complicated than some, again, but not hard to figure out. I love the fact that this can be used in so many ways- front facing in, front facing out, hip carry, and back carry. And since it holds a baby up to 40 pounds, there won't be any need for me to look into a new carrier over the years. It is well worth the money.

I am so pleased with this carrier. I spent an hour in the sling store, going back and forth with my 5-month old baby between this and an Ergo carrier. In the end I went with the Pikkolo because it was more comfortable to me, you could wear baby front facing out (cannot do this in an Ergo), front facing in, hip and back. I also found the carrier body to be short on the Ergo and my baby's legs seemed to be sort of sticking straight out, rather than appearing seated as they do in the Pikkolo. I like that you can narrow the leg area to get a comfortable seated position for your little one.

I'd been using a Moby Wrap but it was getting too hot in the Texas heat, and my son was too heavy (18 lbs!) for me to carry him in the Bjorn Active anymore. I wanted a soft-structured carrier that would get me through toddlerhood and this one fits the bill. I use it at the grocery store, Target, running just about any errand. I can put it on right there in the parking lot quickly and my baby really loves it. All in all a great carrier and well worth the money in my opinion. I got the Mocca Rouge fabric and it is adorable to boot.
