Wearing your baby can be a wonderful way to bond and get places without lugging a heavy stroller.

So why not make the experience as comfortable as possible?

We suggest Infantino‘s EcoSash Wrap & Tie Carrier ($59.99), which can be used in three positions: face-in, face out and as a backpack.

It also features an ergonomically-designed seat with a cozy headrest that can be folded down.

Versatile and easily adjustable, it grows with babies up to 35 lbs.

For your comfort, there are padded no buckle straps that you just tie on.

Gah, my daughter is only 2 yrs old, and I swear there were no where near as many affordable carriers in stores when I was pregnant. It was either handmade slings, the Ergo or the Bjorn.

It’s so awesome that carriers are becoming more affordable and people can buy them in stores instead of just on line.

I have not tried this brand, but I do love mei tai’s in general. I made mine, and use it all the time.

That looks like almost an exact copy of a Babyhawk carrier; they’ve been around for several years. I sure hope they didn’t knock off someone else’s design…

babyhawk must love this!

I agree. This is clearly a Babyhawk knockoff.

Shame on Infantino AND Step2 (their parent company) for mass producing more Made in China crap & stomping on the toes of a Made in the USA product like the Babyhawk carrier.

Also, if you’re a plus-sized momma or well-rounded pop, BabyHawk will make longer straps to guarantee that your carrier will fit you. I wanted to make sure that the knot would never, ever let go on mine; and BabyHawk graciously made the straps long enough to fit me with strap length to spare.

Well if that’s the approach you are going to take, you can easily say that Baby Hawk ripped off their design from the olden times. From the research I did before buying my Mei Tai, seems that this kind of carrier has been around for a very long time. Love the design of this carrier. Super chic.

Kris must have more money than most to throw away on expensive carriers! Or work for Babyhawk. I know that many of my friends and I couldn’t afford one of those over-priced carriers she’s talking about. The Infantino carriers (including this one) are all reasonably priced and work perfectly! Shame on anyone who tells you that you should spend more than you need to!

The first thought that came to my mind was that this reminds me of my BabyHawk!

Janet, there is no shame in supporting products made in the USA… the reason this one is cheaper than Babyhawk is because it was mass produced in china.

And not everyone can afford to buy things only made in america. Look at the price range of this carrier, yes there is the Moby wrap but if you aren’t in to wraps there are bjorn styles and now this I think its great that babies will be in better carriers than a bjorn…

agree with olivia. great that mass marketed baby carriers have moved beyond the bjorn. personally, the mei tai-style never worked for me, but i love my boba carrier. still carry my 14-month-old (she’s about 26 lbs) on my back. my son lived in his ergo for quite some time too.
