I LOVE it and would recommend it to ANYONE!
A couple of months ago I won the Tour in Yoshino carrier by Petunia
Pickle Bottom! I never win anything-I couldn't believe it! I was so
excited to see if I would love the carrier as much as I love my PPB
diaper bag. Well, all I can say is, I am hooked! When I first got the
carrier I thought...YAY, a cute carrier for my new baby girl. Little
did I know, there were WAY more things I would love about this carrier
than just it's looks! I have had other carriers & brands, that have
collected dust because they were either uncomfortable to me or my baby,
or more importantly..too much of a hassle!
Where to begin...I LOVE this baby carrier!
My bruised legs are a thing of the past! The Belle Baby Carrier is about a million steps up from baby's car seat and better than any other baby carrier I've used. I have owned a baby wrap in the past, but it took a really long time to get my baby in and out. Her weight wasn't distributed evenly which gave me a lot of back pain, so I never used it. This baby carrier is completely different! Every piece that touches your body and your baby is very well padded and soft. It has mesh fabric to keep you and baby cool and the criss-cross straps relieve pressure on your back and shoulders. It reminds me a lot of how my baby's weight is distributed when I'm pregnant, especially when she is facing me. She has fallen asleep several times in this carrier and the extra attachment for head support is great for keeping her comfortable. It's awesome for a sick, whiney baby and I think it would be a lifesaver for a mom with a colicky, fussy newborn. It's really easy to put on after the first initial time of adjusting the straps; I'm down to about 20 seconds.
And the most important part, my little girl loves the Belle Baby Carrier! Whenever she sees me put in on she squeals! She loves having a bird's eye view of the world and kicks her legs and laughs almost the whole time--so I think it must be pretty comfortable for her! It frees up my hands to chase around my toddler and I don't have to worry about my baby tipping when I bend over of lean to the side; she is completely secure. My toddler loves that she gets to walk instead of ride in the stroller. And I love not being tied down to a stroller. There are so many situations that aren't stroller friendly. The pictures are from my brother's graduation yesterday. I needed to haul both my kid's into the building and then hike back to the car, but there was nowhere to store a stroller once I was in the building, so my baby carrier was perfect.
Some of my favorite places to take the Belle Baby Carrier are the park, church, and short trips to the store. It's great for those stores that have narrow aisles. Next time I fly I will definitely use my carrier instead of dealing with the stroller hassle. It's perfect for me because I have two kids and need an extra hand, but I think moms of one will still put some serious miles on it because it's so convenient and comfy . I honestly can't say enough good things about it. Out of all the baby gadgets; jumpers, walkers, strollers, high chairs, swings, this is probably my very favorite . In my baby's mind, it's probably second only to her binky!
"Our daughter loves to be held, and our son loves for us to play with him. Our Kokopax allows us to do both! We even use it to keep our daughter safe while we do yard work. Our daughter is comfortable and secure, and Daddy and Mommy have both arms free for the tasks at hand."
"Being a new parent, I have found it challenging to keep my daughter happy when she just wants to be held and at the same time accomplish all the things I need to get done. When we purchased the Belle Baby Carrier I immediately discovered how useful, comfortable, and easy to use it is. It provides an extra set of hands and is a product I would encourage any parent new or experienced to get!"

"I have been using the Belle baby carrier for almost seven months now. This is by far the most versatile baby carrier that I have tried. The Belle is small & does the job great. I nursed my baby to sleep while typing this note with the Belle."

"My husband and I love the Belle and recommend it to all of our friends! We can hike for hours in the Belle, and we'd all be perfectly comfortable. I love that the Belle allows your baby to be snug next to you, rather than having a piece of material in-between. I loved the convenience of being able to nurse while wearing the Belle; it's so easily adjustable!
very safe and easy to put your baby in the carrier alone. We really
like the fact that this product in engineered and manufactured locally.
And, it's simply the coolest looking carrier out there! The icing on
the cake is that it was so easy to contact the company and get an
immediate response to any questions I had about the carrier. It's a
small company, which equates to big service. We tired so many different
carriers, and the Belle is simply the best."

"I deeply enjoy using your carrier for my 7 month old son, look at the picture, he is very happy, and my whole family is very satisfied with your product, thank you! Thank you again for providing us such a nice product!!! I will recommend it to all of my friends."
