Lillebaby Original Elephant Party
Why we love it: The Lillebaby is a great looking soft structured carrier that has two width settings and so is often our first suggestion for people who want longevity from a carrier.
A clever system lets you quickly and securely alter the width of the base so that the Lillebaby can suit babies from 3 months or so up to around 18 months 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!) I
t has a detachable purse and detachable lumbar support which some people find more comfortable. It also 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!
