Virtual Baby Shower Event: Belle Baby Carrier Review and Giveaway



I never carried Libby in a carrier when she was a baby. I remember owning one but she hated being on it. We were both uncomfortable. It was complicated to put on and had so many straps. So when I was pregnant with Emma, a carrier was not on my list to buy. However it all changed when I had a chance to try the Baby Phat Carrier. I fell in love with babywearing. Now, I would rather wear her than use a stroller. In fact we hardly ever used our double stroller anymore.

I recently had a chance to try the Belle Baby Carrier. This carrier is ideal for infants 8-30 lbs. I have been using it for a couple of weeks and I really love this carrier. It is so lightweight and it folds really small. It easily fit in my diaper bag without taking a lot of room compare to my other carriers. In fact when it came in the mail, I was not even sure if it was a carrier because it came in a small box. When I saw the label where it came from, my first thought was they sent me a carrier without a box. It really is the least bulky out of all my carriers. I don't even think any of my other carriers fit in my diaper bag, if it does I would not be able to put anything else inside.


The Belle Baby Carrier is also a little different compare to my other carriers. It has a cross-over straps which distributes your baby's weight to your hips, instead of your back and shoulders. And I can really tell a difference. I hardly carry Emma in the front because she's getting too heavy so most of the time she is being carried on my back. But with the Belle Baby she did not feel heavy at all. I was comfortable wearing her even at 20 weeks pregnant. The cross-over straps however made it a little difficult to put on the first time. But now that I have gotten used to it, putting it on and off is a piece of cake!

Also, out of all my carriers, Belle Baby has the least fabric which gives you direct contact of the baby. Your baby is nestled directly against you without straps or fabric in between which increased bonding. The fabric is also much thinner compare to other carriers I own. The carrier I reviewed is the Organic Jubilee which is made of organic cotton and hemp blended straps and waistbelt. The inside liner is also a blended organic cotton and hemp undyed ultra-soft fuzzy fleece.

I really like that you can carry your baby facing toward you or away from you. But I do wish you can also carry in the back. I also wish that I can use it longer than 30 pounds because Emma is already 24 pounds and I know she will outgrow this carrier soon. But I am definitely looking forward to use it for the next baby.

Another nice thing about Belle Baby carrier is that it comes with a head support for infants. You don't have to buy it separately. They also offer twelve stylish patterns, including five organic baby carriers made of hemp / organic cotton fabrics.

Overall, I love the Belle Baby Carrier and recommend them! They are great for smaller babies up to 30 pounds.
