I lived in it for the first 3-4 months of my baby's life. I wore it one evening when I did a boutique show. He nursed in it and then fell asleep. I wore him for probably 3-4 hours and no back pain! The new colors we just got in are perfect for summer - light and breezy.
You can do things with a wrap that you can't do with other carriers. The main one I love is the front carry facing out. Even the Mei Tai and Ergo don't allow for the baby to face out due to the way the baby's hips are positioned. And my baby needs to see what's going on!You can use the cradle hold for an infant and then a back or hip carry for a toddler. In between, there's the upright position either facing in or out.
