I’ve been keeping a secret this last month. And, it’s been a hard one. Because I love babywearing and haven’t been able to with this one lately. You seen, the fine people at LÍLLÉbaby have been working on it, too. And, they sent the ambassadors one to test out and tell you about it the minute it came out!
Introducing the LÍLLÉbaby Essentials.
It is the newest carrier to join the LÍLLÉbaby family in a gorgeous chevron print. So, last week, I asked our incredibly artistic neighbor to come over and take some pictures that weren’t me standing with a tripod and remote!
I think the first question people will ask is, “how much is it?”
You guys, guess what…. it’s $89.99! It’s a beautiful, comfortable and essential-to-parenting carrier under $100!
If you prefer a chart or a video, scroll down to the end for both of those.
The LÍLLÉbaby Essentials is suitable for 7 pounds (with an infant insert available in early 2016 ) all the way to 45 pounds. This means it’s great for B (21 months, about 33 inches tall and about 26 pounds!) and our 3.5 year old has also had some rides in it, too! They both get a great seat and great support and we are comfortable in it.
It allows for four carrying positions; front, back, hip and infant carry (seen below). The straps have three-way adjustments abilities, with two under the arms and one at the top (PFAs). If that doesn’t make sense, check out the video…it’s a must). The straps can be cross if preferred.
It has an attached mesh hood that can be put in the hood pocket.
The Essentials also has a full pocket on the panel, great for a couple diapers and wipes, pacis, lovies, hats, etc.
A favorite thing that LÍLLÉbaby does is put the male part of the buckle along with the webbing on the strap. It makes a hip carry so much easier because you can reach the strap all the way around (again, check out the video if this needs more explanation. I think you need to see it).
I don’t consider myself petite, but I am on the smaller side with quite narrow shoulders. This carrier is amazing for me. I can get a great fit and there is even more I can tighten if I wanted. With the perfect fit adjusters, I can pull the carrier even tighter and get a closer fit with B, especially on my back. Don’t think this means that it won’t also fit people bigger than me. That’s one of the great LÍLLÉbaby qualities. It will fit a wide range. The Essentials also fits my 6’3” husband with ease and room to go bigger.
We are really enjoying this cost-effective, comfy and patterned carrier for our family. Check out the three carries with our girl. For reference again, she is 21 months, about 33 inches and about 26 pounds.
