We are excited to announce the arrival of the brand new Lillebaby COMPLETE baby carrier in Oklahoma!
One of the reasons we are so excited about the COMPLETE is the picture above – the Airflow carrier is made of 100% cotton and 3D mesh, and is so breathable you can see through it! After another hot Oklahoma summer, we are thrilled to offer what might be the coolest soft-structured carrier on the market.
We also love the COMPLETE because you wear babies from 7 lbs to 45 lbs – but no infant insert is needed for use with newborns, saving you money. It has a padded chest/back clip and optional lumbar support as well. Everything on the COMPLETE is adjustable – shoulder straps, waist belt, head support, etc.
Anyone who comes into Green Bambino asking about babywearing will quickly learn what big fans we are of ERGObaby carriers. We’ve owned an ERGO since my son was 10 months old (he’s now 4 & 40+ lbs) and still use it. As much as we love our ERGO though, there are a few things that could be improved, and Lillebaby has created a carrier that solves those issues.
Our big issue with the ERGO is my son’s height. He still fits weight-wise, but he’s so tall, he dangles in the ERGO as the body of the carrier isn’t wide enough to support his thighs. He tends to pitch forward, squishing his sensitive bits against my back. Foot holds or stirrups would help get him back in a comfortable seated position and take that pressure off. I asked ERGO about developing stirrups a year ago, but they didn’t seem keen on that idea.
This is where the Lillebaby COMPLETE carrier shines. They’ve created ingenious stirrups ($13.95/pair) that slide onto the carrier belt and adjust to fit any size child. My son pushed and stretched against the stirrups and the velcro held securely. Your secret tip of the day – the Lillebaby stirrups fit on ERGObaby carriers, too! So if you already have an ERGO and love it, but need foot rests for your child, all you need are a pair of Lillebaby COMPLETE stirrups!
The Lillebaby COMPLETE carrier is currently available at Green Bambino in organic cotton ($135 in three colors) and the Airflow style ($115). Four conventional cotton colors ($110) will be available in the near future.
