LOVE this carrier!
This is our first baby, and so I researched many different carriers to decide what would be best for us. We were given a Mei Tai and Baby Bjorn as hand me downs, but this Mercedes of a carrier beats both hands down. It is easy to use, super comfy, very adjustable (I'm 5' and my partner is 6', and we can both adjust it so it fits), and doesn't have extra straps hanging down all over the place. Most importantly of all, it's super comfy for both baby and parent for hours of wear. Currently, we use it for our 6 week old (~10 lbs), and we feel that it fits him comfortably and doesn't let his head bobble around without smothering him. Apparently the Manduca is very well known in Europe, while here in North America the Ergo is the most popular; however, I didn't like the Ergo Infant Insert - it just seemed too bulky and hot. The built in infant seat is just brilliant as an alternative. This particular colour is more of a faded teal. I was actually worried after buying it that it would be too bright, but I was very relieved upon opening the box. The colour is bright enough to be fun and energetic, but not too eye catching. I also love that it's organic. The only drawback is that baby can't sit front facing in it, but I figure when he's old enough to enjoy that, we'll just put him on the back.
