  • I know, I know... it seems like I should stop using it... but my dd LOVES it. Also, of all the various carriers I have tried between my 2 kids, it is the only one that doesn't kill my back. I do not like the wrap-style carriers (too cumbersome for me). It does not always cut into her legs- I do not understand why it happens sometimes and not others.

  • Probably because sometimes she's stretching her leggers out, and sometimes she has them popped up. Also, my babies get fatter before they get taller.
