We wanted another one that we could keep in the car in case we found ourselves out and about somewhere and forgot to pack the Ergo. This Snugli turned out to be the right choice.
Pros: This unit was the right price for what we needed: really inexpensive. Even with the low price it works well for what we need. It's compact, easy to use, and allows good flexibility: you can wear it in back or front and with the baby facing you or facing out.
Cons: It's functional, but not super comfortable. After extended wear you will feel it either in your lower back or neck. The straps are thinner than on the other carrier we use and can dig in after a while. They're also all nylon and not too comfortable if your arms rub on them walking around.
Bottom line: I like this as our secondary carrier for shorter use, but am very happy we invested in the Ergo for longer use. I have no problem recommending the Snugli for those looking for an economical option that gets the job done, but would have them look elsewhere if they want more comfort.
When we purchased the Evenflo Snugli, I thought this axiom had seen its last. The Snugli would vanquish the happiness/comfort negative correlation and all would be well with the world. Alas, this was not to be.
As babies, my children loved to be carried around in the Snugli, especially my youngest son Ben. We would place him in the Snugli (a feat of Olympic proportions to do alone) and could almost guarantee he would be asleep in 5 minutes. But, as fate would have it, it would take about that long for my comfort level to begin its decline.
The Snugli is fairly well padded with a crisscross strap that goes over the shoulders and under the arms. The underarm straps are easily adjustable and hook/unhook to the main body of the carrier. Because the straps are wide and padded, I found they didn't dig into my shoulders as much as I thought they would. Unfortunately, there isn't much back support and after awhile, my back was really starting to ache. And of course, the baby slept on. However, this may be true of most, if not all, carriers.Read more ›
BTW, My 4 month old is still getting used to it. She is not a sling or carrier baby, YET. She likes to see me and Dad so inward facing she would cry and strain head to see us. Now, she is strong enough to face out and we are teaching her to like it. - Have her sister (5) encourage her as we put her in, take her to mirrors so she sees herself and parent, and distract her with toys. She goes about 15 minutes before getting tired and bawling - but that is from bawling when we put her in 3 months ago. Use for quick trips to the mailbox or when I need to carry something up or down stairs.
By June, she should be comfortable and happy. Just takes patience teaching, like all else.
When he was first born, using it was a breeze, and I could go for a couple of hours without feeling very tired, but now, at 20lbs, i can only carry him for about 30-40 minutes at a time, until I feel my neck and shoulders are all numb.
THe convenience of being able to go for walks or do things around the house with baby, and still have free hands is wonderful. I do have to be careful not to trip over things, because I dont see too well right in front of me while wearing it.
It's easy to wash, easy to adjust and a breeze to put baby in and out, with a little practice.
I would use it forever if not for the weight limit, which he is quickly approaching.
