I loved the look of this carrier, at first impression. The included diagrams on how to use were very helpful- at first I didn't see them and I looked up info online. The material is soft and thick so it definitely provides support. I shy away from the traditional structured carriers because there are too many buckles etc and it's such a hassle to use, but slings can sometimes not feel supportive enough, so I was eager to try a semi structured carrier like the Yema! I will say, it takes a little practice on how to quickly wrap this carrier, but after a couple tries at home, I was pleasantly surprised at how quick it was to use. I don't know if I feel comfortable yet throwing it in the car and quickly using it for outings, but hopefully once I'm more comfortable with it around the house, I will use it more often when we go out to provide some free hands! The carrier provides lots of support which is definitely a plus with carriers like this. The waist band is nice and sturdy and it feels so good to wear on my lower back. My newborn is 11 weeks and I first tried it when
he was a newborn and he fit nice and snug in there, so I think with some more weight on him, it will only get better.
I love the quality of cybex products and have enthusastically recommended them to other moms, especially the strollers. This carrier has the same high quality I expect from a high end brand like Cybex.
In summary, my only con is it goes take some practice to use, but if you stick with it and give it some time, it will quickly become one or your favorite carriers.
