After two years of parenting and twice as many carriers, the Beco really is the best all around carrier. And if I had to do it all over again and only choose one, it would be the Beco. With its infant insert you can use it from 7 lbs. to 45 lbs. and for both comfortable front and back carry. It is machine washable, made from high quality tested materials for the safety of your child and their website features easy to follow instructional videos. Did I mention how pretty they are? We have many styles to choose from at Hip Baby. Come in for a demo!
