Great product and speedy delivery!

I'm a grandmother of a beautiful baby girl. My daughter received 2 infant carriers as gifts, and while I love "wearing" the baby, they both gave me back problems and weren't comfortable overall. I googled to find a better carrier and as a result, ordered the Beco Baby Gemini, Ellie, which has a lovely design on the front perfect for a baby girl. It has been a dream for both me and my daughter. No back problems and baby loves it! Loved Albee for the good price, bonus $20 Albee gift certificate that came with it, which made the deal unbeatable. The delivery speed and packaging were perfect!
Pros:For my 3 month old granddaughter, almost 15 pounds, front/facing in: Easy to put baby in carrier, good ergonomic leg position so that there's no damage to the hips, love the flap that can be put up for greater head support or to lull the baby to sleep, or turned down for baby to look around, baby can be removed from carrier without waking and put down to sleep with no problem. Very comfortable for both the adult and the baby. Designed to diminish any back or other muscle strain, and I found that to be true. I live in Florida and don't find it a "hot" carrier as some of them can be with the material they use.
Cons:This is a safety feature and a very minor "con," but you need 2 hands to unlock most buckles as there's a button that has to be pushed in with one hand while releasing the buckle the usual way with the other hand. Not a big deal, and this 60-year-old can handle it with no problem.
Best Uses:Infant carrier for infants through toddler, 4 ways of carrying, including front facing out.
