Lillebaby COMPLETE Original Baby Carrier

Anyone that reads this blog, or knows me, knows that the wife and I have a serious collection of woven wraps, and ssc’s (soft structured carriers); which are, of course, baby carriers!  I have found that woven wraps and ssc’s are both handy to have around.  The wife and I currently own a couple other ssc’s, and now, thanks to being on team Lillebaby with my wife for the Babywearing World Record, we own a Lillebaby Warm Orange Complete Original Baby Carrier.

Since my wife and I are on Team Lillebaby for the Babywearing World Record, I figured I would share some of my thoughts on this carrier, so here we go!

First impression:  

First thing I noticed with this carrier was that it was packaged immaculately, in a nice box with a carrying handle.  It came complete with great instructions, along with directions on how to use the carrier in different positions.  The color we got was a nice soft/burnt orange color, with a cream colored interior.  The quality of this carrier is excellent, and it looks like it’s going to be a great carrier that is fairly simple to use.

In Use:

The carrier was delivered to us just in time to head to Disneyland for a day of walking and babywearing, and I figured, what better way to test out the carrier than to go to the happiest place on earth and walk around all day?  For some reason, we had to park in the Simba parking lot, and walk all the way through Downtown Disney, just to get into the park, so we got in our fair share of testing before we even got to the gates!

Since I was the one taking the pictures to put up on the blog for review, and my daughter can’t seem to be more than five steps away from her mom for any length of time, my beautiful wife was the one doing most of the testing for the day.  I was asking her how she felt about this carrier, and how it compared to the other ssc’s that we currently have.  She seemed to find it to be just as comfy and easy to use as either of them, and she seemed to have no problems when our daughter wanted “milkies” (my wife breastfeeds, so I’ll leave it up to you to decipher what “milkies” means). She also used it for both front and back carries, and found it to be really comfortable in either position. (The Lillebaby also has the option to be converted into a narrow based, front facing carrier; but this position usually isn’t as ergonomically correct/comfortable for larger babies like our daughter, so we skipped it.) The wife would have loved to try the hip carry, but in all the excitement of the day, we simply ran out of time!

One neat feature the Lillebaby has that our other ssc’s lack is the adjustable neck support. If you have ever had a toddler with a floppy head fall asleep on your back, you know how handy this is. It can be snapped down to the body of the carrier when not needed, and then flipped up and snapped to the strap.  Really neat!

Our daughter spent A LOT of time in the carrier today, as we got there at about 8:30 a.m. and left at about 3:45 p.m.  She seemed to find it comfortable, and did not complain about it, as I’ve seen her do with other carriers.  I have personally tested it with our daughter on a few walks around the neighborhood, and I found it to be very easy to use, and very comfortable. My wife’s one request was a pocket, but she carts too much junk around anyway!

Overall Impression:  

Overall, I have found that the Lillebaby Complete Original Baby Carrier would be a great addition to any wrap or carrier stash.  Given the price point and the comfort level, I think it’s a carrier that everyone should have around.  They come in a wide variety of colors and are very easy to roll into a compact, easy to tote package when not in use.  If you’re looking for an easy to use carrier, that’s comfortable, and has a nice price point, Lillebaby’s Complete Original Baby Carrier should be at the top of your list!

  1. […] We had originally looked at attending MommyCon in Los Angeles, just because it looked like it would be a cool event where we could learn a lot about parenting, but unfortunately, it wasn’t in the cards for us to pay to go.  While researching MommyCon and seeing what it was all about, we came across the Baby Wearing World Record event that was set to take place just before MommyCon, and best of all, it was FREE to register.  So of course, we jumped on that chance, and registered.  We just kept thinking about how cool it would be to be a part of the largest, record breaking group of baby wearers.  Shortly after we registered, my wife was talking to her friend Amanda, fellow mom, and baby wearer, as well as the writer of the awesome Mommy Mandy blog.  Amanda mentioned that she had been talking to Lillebaby carriers about being on “Team Lillebaby” for the event, and she pulled some strings for us, and got us in touch with the crew from Lillebaby so we could get setup to be on their team.  So, Thanks Amanda for the awesome opportunity.  If you’d like to take a look at my thoughts on the Lillebaby Complete Carrier, check it out here!
