It does protect the baby's back, and the back of the baby's head, but I don't get a lot of use out of this. It is also made well, and looks even cuter than the picture.
However, the baby hates wearing it, and it is easy for the baby to loosen the straps. The straps also dig into the baby's arms/shoulders in an uncomfortable way, making the baby reluctant to crawl. The only way to prevent the straps from bothering the baby, is to loosen the straps to a point that makes the product useless.
So the concept is great, but the product needs to be redesigned a bit. I think a waist strap that the shoulder straps attach to would dramatically improve the design flaws. That's something one could even do themselves (with a needle, thread, elastic band, scissors, and patience), so I may just adjust it myself. Will upload pictures if I do!
This is exactly what we needed! My 8 month old is no longer worried about falling back when she scoots around on the floor. Although she hates shirts and things touching her arms, once she realized that with this on her falls dont hurt she happily kept it on, despite the occasional slipping of the strap. The strap does slip down on her right arm some times to the level of her biceps, but if she is playing with both hands it stay up just fine. It slips more if she does not have a shirt on.
Does the job! I've purchased the little bee protector for my 9 months baby who started crawling and standing, she tend to fall raughly on her head and it broke my heart time after time. This really does the job and protects her little head, also, its extremely cute and make everyone laugh when ever they see the little bee :) Thank you!
Thought this was adorable and now that my son is at the age where he is pulling himself up doing all things baby! Lol I figured this would help him when he took a tumble... I feel so dumb go Buying this! Did not give my child any safety if anything it was in the way... looks like a costume you would put on your dog! Don’t waste your time!
