Really stiff and scratchy fabric
July 26, 2019
Love the idea, but the fabric was really stiff and scratchy. Baby had red rings around her thighs in the 5min she was in it. She also cried as if uncomfortable. The straps were scratchy and itchy on my shoulders. The stiffness of the fabric also prevented the carrier from conforming well to the small body of a newborn.
We returned it and purchased the all-cotton version and couldn't be happier with it! The cotton must be sufficiently breathable as baby isn't sweaty when taken out. And while a breathable back is a good idea, baby is warmed much more on the parent-facing side and if the weather was so hot baby needed ventilation in the back, then it was also too hot to be carried at all as parent's body heat would have caused overheating.
