Mothercare 3-way baby carrier

DESCRIPTION: A black nylon fabric baby sling which can hold baby in either a front position facing you (from 3.5kg), a front position facing out (from 3 months), and a back position (from 6 months). The sling comes with a lumbar support, removable head cushion, two dribble bibs, a dummy holder, and black net storage bag. Suitable from birth to 12kg (approx 18 months).

GOOD POINTS: The carrier is very reasonably priced. It is a very practical sling and can be used to carry baby both round the home and out and about. The carrier is simple to put on and importantly, is easy to get baby into and out of on your own (and even one-handed!). It is fastened together using a number of adjustable straps to suit you and your baby’s body sizes.

The carrier is made from padded breathable (and machine-washable) material, and its ergonomic design spreads the weight well across your front, shoulders and back, which makes it very comfortable to wear. The lumbar support not only eases the pressure on your shoulders, but also holds the baby into your body. The head cushion is suitable for supporting a newborns head and neck, and can simply be detached once your baby gets bigger. The dummy holder prevents your baby’s soother from being lost should it fall out whilst they are in the carrier.

BAD POINTS: The back position is more difficult to master on your own, and when the baby is in this position, the straps sit across the chest which may be uncomfortable for women with larger bust sizes. The carrier may only last one child due to the fact that the material starts to stretch over time through general wear and tear and also as your baby gets bigger and heavier. Once this has happened it may become uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time.

PRICE: £39.99 from Mothercare
