I absolutely love my Becco Gemini. I started out using another brand carrier and it was killing my back by the time my son hit 3 months old. One of my friends had a Gemini and let me "test drive" it. My husband and I fell in love immediately and the cost of the product did not even play a part in our decision. We both carried my son around in all the time and used it more than the stroller. I loved how well my son was supported and that he could face forward and see what was going on. It was also comfortable wearing him on on my hip and back. Once I learned how to put the carrier on, it was a piece of cake to use by myself. We carried our son in it on our backs until he was two years old and 35lbs. We another baby on the way now and cannot wait to use it again with this baby. I am looking into learning how to nurse my baby as well while still in the carrier.
Pros:Simple to use, convertible (4-in-1 ways to wear it), comfortable, great support for both the person wearing it and baby, easy to clean
Cons:Took me a day or so to learn how to use all the carry positions without someone else helping me with the baby, but this would be the case with most all carriers.
Best Uses:Great all around - hiking, shopping, going to the park, cleaning the house, football games, and much more!
