-Strong stitching and clasps (well built)
-Adjustable for parents' and baby's size (our baby is just at the lower limit of 7 lbs. and at times needs a folded receiving blanket to keep his head from moving too much; even for our small baby this "Vent" model has plenty of gaps for safe uncrowded breathing.)
-Reasonable padding of shoulder straps, good foam padding for baby (the aqua color)
-Low cost compared to other brands (appears equally functional to much pricier brands)
-Easily opens to either side top and bottom to get baby out/in
For sizing perfections, some company should make a small and large size for the baby portion that can be interchanged when baby grows (think about it- it might carry 7 to 26 lbs, but for 7 he's deep down in the carrier and 26 I'm sure he'll be hangin' all over!)
Bottom line: Great product at good value compared to competitors. Would buy again.
- Great for babies under 10 pounds
- Good for short outings (20 min)
- Folds up easily
- Nice Color
- The straps really dig into your shoulders
- It does not distribute the babies weight very well - hence a sore back in no time.
- It does not fit a man very well, so forget sharing the carrying with your husband.
- It's a little tricky getting the baby in & out
- My baby is now 4 months old and it's pretty tight.
If you will mostly be using a stroller, perhaps it's good to have this model as an option. However, your needs & the baby's may change and it is good to have a high quality carrier to provide you with the freedom to roam as you please comfortably. Cheers!
At 6 months, our son still fits the carrier but I am afraid it won't be long until he outgrows the carrier. It's just so convenient and easy to use when traveling with the baby. Still praying that we can still use the carrier on our next trip when our son is 8.5 months! Conclusion, if you're not sure if your baby will appreciate the carrier, this is a good buy! And unlike most carriers, this one is flexible where you baby can either face you or outside! Now isn't that great?
(However as one of the customers mentioned already, you may need to attach velcro/button/hook to keep the "flap" down when the baby is facing outside - I put the "glue-on" velcro and it works great).
Just a note, I've heard from a few moms that carriers like this are supposed to be bad for the baby's back. I've never heard that from an authority such as our doctor, so I don't know if that is true or not. However, my son definitely did not suffer any ill effects from using this carrier--he's strong as an ox & healthy as a horse! And so far my daughter doesn't seem to have any problems, either.

The Snugli has been very helpful in my house. Our baby (now 2 months) has never liked her swing and barely tolerates the bouncer; she just wants to be held. Read morePublished on December 20, 2010 by C. Morkunas
