When first time parents create a baby registry list they tend to think of the most obvious items at first – diapers, wipes, a stroller and cute outfits. These are must products, but what other items are too? As a mother of three, one essential baby product I would recommend to all new parents is a baby carrier. Baby-wearing has become all the rage in the last few years and for good reason. Not only can you keep your baby close from birth, but it makes navigating life so much easier.
One carrier I particularly like is the LÍLLÉbaby COMPLETE. I love that it is one of the safest carriers you can find on the market. The COMPLETE features an exclusive temperature-control panel that easily zips-up for warmth and zips-down to expose cool, breathable, 3D mesh. The hood can also be used to protect baby from sun, wind and rain. These features make the COMPLETE perfect for everyday use – from cold to hot weather. Their is also a zippered front pocket. When baby carrying my baby girl I leave the purse at home and zip my keys, phone and cash in the front.
The design of the COMPLETE carrier keeps the comfort of parents in mind. Not only is the carrier lightweight, but it also provides lumbar support that most carriers fail to do. From long strolls to hikes, the support helps maintain a healthy posture and proper spinal curve while preventing back strain when carrying your baby. It’s easy to adjust the straps without help and you can even do so with the baby in the carrier.
The COMPLETE has a long usage life, with the ability to carry children from 7 -45 lbs. Their is also no need for an infant insert when your baby is a newborn. Simply, add a tiny rolled up blanket under the babies bottom for the perfect fetal position. The neck support can also be used till baby is able to hold up his/her own head. As baby grows into toddlerhood, parents can carry their child additional positions – facing out, on the hip and back.
The carrier comes in a wide variety of colors and designs – girl, boy and neutral looking styles. Depending on the design, the original COMPLETE runs between $120-140. The price is reasonable and competitive to other brands. LÍLLÉbaby offers multiple variations of the COMPLETE carrier, so be sure to check them out here.
