PRODUCT: Tomy Freestyle Classic Baby CarrierTomy Freestyle Classic baby carrier (www.tomy.co.uk)

DESCRIPTION: A fabric carrier which allows you to carry baby on your front facing either inwards or outwards (from 3 months). Features include lumbar support, detachable dribble bib, dummy holder, and pocket. Suitable from birth to 12 months (3.5kg - 9kg).

GOOD POINTS: The carrier can be purchased for a really good price and comes in pleasant colours. Baby is held snuggly inside, leaving you hands-free to do/carry other things.

It is easy to put on - simply place over your head and fasten round the left hand side of your waist using an adjustable Velcro waistband with additional security clip. Putting the baby in is just as easy and is something you can do on your own - place your baby in the carrier, do up the Velcro fastening and plastic clip on each side, and bring the top of the carrier up to fasten onto secure snap-on clips on each of the shoulder straps. This can be done with one hand. If the baby is facing outwards, the front of the carrier can be folded down and fastened with a button to allow them a good view.

The lumbar support waistband helps to prevent strain on your back and shoulders and spreads the baby's weight evenly across your body. The dribble bib protects your clothes (and stops them rubbing against your baby), and the dummy holder is useful for preventing your child's soother from dropping on the floor. It can be easily cleaned and is machine washable.

BAD POINTS: The button does not hold the front flap of the carrier down very securely, and can come undone fairly easily when carrying baby along. Once this happens it is difficult to refasten it with your child in the carrier. In addition, the carrier is difficult to adjust once it is on, and the waistband can easily ride up. The carrier also does not have the option of a back position like some other baby carriers.

PRICE: Approx. £28
