LÍLLÉbaby has done it again. They have knocked their newest creation, the LÍLLÉbaby Active 6-in-1 carrier out of the part. This is a game-changer! It’s everything you already know and love about LÍLLÉbaby and more! Order the Active NOW!
Thanks to LÍLLÉbaby for providing the carrier for review. All thoughts are my own.
B is 4.5 years old here and about 40 inches and 38 pounds to give you an idea of the size! And just like most of the other LÍLLÉbaby carriers, the LÍLLÉbaby Active will allow for infants starting at 7lbs and all the way up to 45 pounds.
The LÍLLÉbaby Active doesn’t need an infant insert just like the LÍLLÉbaby COMPLETE.
You can use the LÍLLÉbaby Active in 6 carrying styles, fetal, infant, facing out, toddler, hip carry, back carry.
LÍLLÉbaby Active Styles
The LÍLLÉbaby Active Pro model will come in Space Dye-Grey and Space Dye-Cobalt and the All-Seasons will launch in Slate.
LÍLLÉbaby Active Pro Fabric
I’m showcasing the LÍLLÉbaby Active Pro in Space Dye-Grey. It is constructed from a super soft performance based fabric with NEW 3D birdseye mesh fabric that feels like your favorite pair of athletic clothes. You will find it to be a soft comfort active fabric and very responsive as it is a knit spandex/flex material. This carrier moves with you and your little one. There is no breaking this in. It’s super soft and supple right out of the box.
Lillebaby Active All Seasons Fabric
This model has the expected all-seasons zip down panel in the middle to expose the new 3D birdseye mesh fabric. This 3D birdseye mesh fabric is the softest mesh fabric I have ever felt. The durable, water resistant shell material is a polyurethane backed polyester fabric. The PU backing gives it strength, durability, water resistance as well a toughness/ruggedness without feeling like it is.
B now only requests this carrier for our walks to school in the morning. It really is so soft and luxurious almost without feeling like any of the structure is compromised. And, I like that I’ve now got a phone pocket, a water bottle pocket and a couple places to put my keys. Let’s touch on more of those amazing features.
What is new with the LÍLLÉbaby Active compared to the LÍLLÉbaby COMPLETE?
Carabiner on waistband
The carabiner and hook make a great place to snap your keys or even a snack or toy for your kiddo.
The LÍLLÉbaby Active has 7 pockets.
1. water bottle pocket on the lumbar support
2. cell phone pocket on straps with “tech touch” which means you can still operate the phone without taking it out of the pocket—still swipeable for fitness trackers, music playlists, maps etc.
3. smaller zippered pocket on body of carrier
4. larger zippered pocket on body of carrier
5-6. two pockets; one on each of the seat width adjusters
7. pocket at the top for the neck support
I’m super partial to the water bottle pocket. I like carrying one with me, but love that I can now do it hands-free. I also like the phone pocket so I can keep it close by without the chance of dropping it.
Head Support Pocket
I’m so happy about this difference, too. I’ve already told you about the pocket, but I need to emphasize it. The neck support can be folded up instead of snapping it down when not in use.
Once you fold it, you tuck it into the top pocket / pouch (with no zipper) and it stays out of the way until you are ready to use it.
Like the COMPLETE, the Active allows you to tuck the support buckles into the straps when not in use. When you need the neck support, just slip the buckles out, pull out the neck support and you are ready to put it back up.
The shoulder padding
If you’ve worn a baby in a carrier for any period of time, you know how important the shoulder padding is. The LÍLLÉbaby Active has new padding on shoulders that feels almost like a supportive mini-mattress. The feel like they mold to your body and offer amazing support.
On the Active, unlike the COMPLETE, you don’t have the seam down the middle so it allows the foam to not be quite so compressed. You’ll also see they have a binding along the edge.
The lumbar support
The LÍLLÉbaby Active has the amazing lumbar support that LÍLLÉbaby is known for with a little twist. Instead of 2 loops, it now only has 1 loop. This really helps people with smaller waists that were unable to get tighter fit on the waistband. And, as I’ve mentioned, the fabulous water bottle / bottle / sippy cup pocket right on the lumbar support.
The webbing and straps
The webbing on the LÍLLÉbaby Active is new and oh so smooth. It makes getting the perfect fit and adjustments happen with a breeze. Once you find that perfect fit, your buckles will be hidden under the super soft fabric of the straps so they are out of the way and not touching your skin or baby’s.
Hooks on straps
We are big fans of the retractable mirror offered by LÍLLÉbaby. These hooks make it super easy to attach the mirror so you can check on your baby in a back carry…or they can stare at themselves!
The chest clip
The chest clip on the LÍLLÉbaby Active now glides on a slider. Moving the chest clip up and down happens with great ease with this addition.
This new 3D birdseye mesh fabric is amazingly soft. I’ve never felt a mesh like it before. It feels silky to the touch. It is still just as breathable as any other mesh I’ve come across, but with smaller holes and a gentler feel making it nice on the carrier’s shoulder’s and baby’s skin.
The LÍLLÉbaby Active does not have a hood.
We are so pleased with the LÍLLÉbaby Active. It is an amazing addition to the LÍLLÉbaby family of products. You definitely don’t have to be into hiking or be “outdoorsy” to enjoy all of the great additions and upgrades to the new Active carrier.
Make sure you get your order now!
