Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very useful Absolutely love this sling. My baby was a bit hesitant at first but got used to it very quickly and that gave me my arms back to get on with chores! 04 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfortable and practical Easy to use once you get used to it and very comfortable for the baby. Washable and packs away very small for travelling. 20 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Baby feels very secure compared to others I tried in the shop. She always falls asleep once in it after a minute or two protesting. Great for keeping my hands free when doing things about the house. Very useful for short trips to the shops etc. instead of digging out the pram. Mind you getting baby in and out does take some practice 08 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely Product 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. 22 August 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. 27 July 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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!! 13 June 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely carrier 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. 15 May 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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!! 11 April 2012
