Why we love it: The Beco Gemini is great looking soft structured carrier that is particularly narrow and so is often our first suggestion for smaller babies.
A clever system lets you quickly and securely alter the width of the base so that the Gemini can suit babies from 3 months or so up to around a year old (on the wider base setting). You can wear the shoulder straps 'back pack style' or crossed over (its personal preference as to which is 'best', so try both!) It also has 'safety buckles' which mean that you need to hold down an extra bit to take the buckle off - this is great for nervous types but can be fiddly for those who struggle with small movements with their hands.
It has a fold down head rest that attaches to the main body of the carrier with simple poppers. Finally - its comfortable and comes in beautiful designs. big thumbs up!
This carrier is for sale. We also have several Beco Gemini's available for rent - see the 'rent' menu option.
