Close Parent Caboo Carrier, Dark Denim
Was shown how to use this baby carrier in the Glasgow store. The store assistant was very knowledgable and patient helping us select this one. At first it seems too simple a way to keep your baby safe but it really is a wonderful and comfortable baby carrier.

Very Comfortable Carrier
I'm really enjoying this product so far. It's very easy to use for a fabric sling, it's stretchy and very comfortable for both of us. Didn't get as much use as I'd have liked when she was tiny but it makes up for it now she can support her head more. Only issue is the warmth worries me so would advise stripping down according to the temperature.

Really lovely product
Once you understand how to set it up and are comfortable getting the little one in and out, this carrier is very comfortable and allows you to get on with bits and bobs whilst still being close to baby. Within a few minutes she also has fallen asleep and then its really easy to put her down for the night or a much needed nap!!

I've been using this for the past three weeks with my new baby boy - he instantly falls asleep when it's on, which must mean it's very comfy. It's very easy to use, no clips to do up etc.

Fantastic - all the ease of a structured carrier but the comfort and flexibility of a wrap!
I bought this baby carrier on the spur of the moment and honestly intended to try it and return it as I already have a scarf wrap and a sling. But as soon as I put my baby in it, I knew it had to stay! I always liked my scarf wrap but didn't use it that much as it took time on put on and off when i just wanted to wear baby for short spaces. But you just pop this one over your head, tighten straps and away you go. Brilliant! Also, my 4 month old is something of a wriggler and previous to this carrier would have days where he really disliked being worn as he wanted to move about. I've found that he loves the Caboo as there sent quite so much material which gives him a little more space to flex those tiny legs and arms!
It comes with an extra bit of material for added security (the vertical wrapped bit in the picture), I don't tend to use this it it's great for when it's cooler as you cn stuff a blanket in there for added warmth. It's made from organic cotton and is wonderfully soft. It's slightly stretchy too which makes it good for beginners.
The only negative I guess would be that I don't think you can use t to wear baby on the back (I may be wrong?!) But this doesn't bother me as I only wear my baby on the front so far anyway (facing in or out) and personally I have other back carriers.
All in all, it's my favourite carrier so far - looks good, easy to slip off and on and comfortable during extended wears. I love it and would heartily recommend it!!

Easier on the back and shoulders
Bought this for my son when he was about 8 weeks old as he wanted to be held for naps and a sling allowed me to do other things at the same time, but was finding the one we already had (a Baby Bjorn) was starting to put stress on my shoulders. After watching an instructional video on YouTube, this was pretty easy to get on and there is no faffing about tying lengths of material which you get with other carriers of this style, but it's nevertheless not as easy as the Baby Bjorn and there is a bit of a knack to it, which is not ideal if you're trying to get a howling baby into it. I also had hoped to use it for breastfeeding but found this position awkward and my son hated it. The main downsides I've found are that I get very hot wearing this with my baby in it, and for babies who can't yet support their head, you have to tuck their head under one side of the fabric, which my baby really didn't like. The main upside is that it is much more comfortable on my shoulders as the weight is better distributed, so I'm expecting to get more use out of this sling as my baby gets older and heavier and can support his own head.

Couldn't manage without it
My 4-week old baby loves sleeping in this (shame she doesn't like sleeping anywhere else, but that's another matter). She feels nice and secure and I can do things like bend over and pick stuff up off the floor without worrying about her slipping around. I haven't worked out how to breastfeed my baby in it yet, and it can be a bit tricky to put on the first few times until you get used to it. The back support is good enough, but not fantastic.
