A super comfortable baby carrier
I had a carrier that I used all of the time that really hurt my back and shoulders whenever I used it. The only reason that I continued to wear it was because I loved the feeling of my baby being close to me at all times. I finally got fed up with it and decided that it was time to find a different carrier that would be more comfortable and make the entire experience of baby-wearing more enjoyable for me. A friend of mine recommended this one and, after reading some reviews, I decided to give it a shot. The first time I put it on I noticed a huge difference from my previous carrier. It didn’t pinch like my other one did and instead fit nice and snug almost like it was made for me. It fit right on my hips and the shoulder pads made it so it didn’t feel like there was a ton of pressure on it even with the baby in the carrier.
The Flip Front 2 has some cool features.
I love the fact that I can wear this carrier three different ways. It can be worn on the front with the baby either front facing or rear facing or it can be worn on the back. This makes it so much easier to move the baby around depending on what task you are doing. When I am cooking and don’t want him to be near the hot stove I will put him on my back but when we are going for a walk or something I like to put him front facing so that he can see all of the scenery. Of course for younger babies it is most comfortable and safe for them to be on your front and be rear facing because that way they can snuggle up to your chest and not have to worry about holding their own heads up and such. I also really like the pocket that is on the front of the carrier because it is the perfect size for my phone. This especially comes in handy when I am babywearing out of the house so it is easy to access if I need to check my messages, missed calls, or shopping list.
A couple ways that Infantino could improve this product
I do wish that there was some way you could tighten it so that the baby is more snug against your body when they are facing in. When I have my son in this in the rear facing position and go to lean over for whatever reason he always tips more than a comfortable amount and makes me worried that he might fall out of it. I always have to use my arm to support him that extra little bit which is fine but it does make some tasks a little bit more difficult. It is also made of very thick, padded material which means that it is also very warm. This is a good thing in cool or cold weather but when it’s warm outside it is nearly impossible to wear it between the insulated padding and the heat of mine and my son’s bodies. This is fine with me because I have bought a cooler, more breathable carrier for the summer time but it is something to keep in mind.
An awesome baby carrier
I have read mixed reviews on this carrier but I have honestly had nothing but positive experiences with this baby carrier. It has worked really well for my son and me and I really enjoy baby-wearing again! It is super affordable too which makes it an even better deal overall. I am so glad that my friend told me about this wrap and I will be using it until my son will no longer fit into it and probably use it again with my next child. I would highly recommend checking it out if you are in the market for a baby carrier!
