líllébaby COMPLETE Original Carrier Review and Giveaway

>> Wednesday, March 13, 2013


Now, as most of you probably know when most people do giveaways, it's because they received a product for free, tested it out, and do the review and giveaway.  This time I bought a product, loved it so much that I contacted the company about doing a giveaway, and they agreed.  That's just how much I love all of you and they do, too!!

So it wasn't until recently that I learned how important it is to have a baby carrier that is ergonomically correct for babies hips.  I knew that I needed to find something comfortable for ME because the one I had was killing my back.  And when I started researching, that's when I learned about how important it is to have a carrier that has a wider seat to support the baby/child in a seated position to support proper hip development and prevent hip dysplasia.

After reading around online and asking for suggestions, I decided on a carrier.  It was a no-go.  I couldn't get it to fit comfortably on me, and my baby just kept grunting the whole time he was in it. I tried another carrier.  It was better, but I still wasn't 100% comfortable wearing it.  And that's when fate brought me to líllébaby, and the líllébaby COMPLETE carrier.  After doing a search online, I found them listed on consumerreports.org under their baby carriers section.  Once I looked at the líllébaby website, I was pretty convinced that this was the carrier that would finally win me over.

I needed the carrier soon, so I contacted them on their facebook page to ask if their was somewhere locally that had their carrier.  They responded the same day giving me a couple of locations that were doable.  I went and tried it on and knew that it was the one.  Just to be absolutely, positively sure I tried on yet another carrier and it only confirmed that the líllébaby COMPLETE carrier was the one for me.

Immediately after my purchase, our family went to this amazing (ie, very large) park to let our older kids play.

 For an hour and a half I followed my kids all around this park, and for an hour and a half, my back never ached!  And there my 4 month old slept comfortably!  (See, look how comfy we are!)


What I love:
--It has several different positions of wear (front carry, back carry, side carry, forward facing) that are all safe for babies hips (seat can be adjusted to fit newborns without being so wide).

--It fits newborn up to 45 lbs.  This carrier is with you and the little one for the long haul!

--I could actually get a great fit on my shoulders.  For some reason with the other carriers the shoulder straps always felt loose and like they were going to slide down and I just couldn't get them to adjust correctly.  I could get the straps to fit perfectly on the líllébaby COMPLETE.

--Not only does it have a hood for sleeping, but it also has adjustable back support for newborn babies.  And then you snap it down when they are bigger and don't need the support so they can see around better.  This was HUGE for me since the other carriers came up so high and it was hard for my little ones to see around.
--They have great color options in soft and comfy 100% cotton (organic is an option!).  They don't have super fancy designed fabrics, but that is just fine with me!  I chose the warm orange carrier, and I think it convinced me that it needs to be my new favorite color!

--When it calls itself the COMPLETE, it's the truth.  I love all of the options!  (Ok, maybe I do wish there was a zippered pouch for a few of my things, but it's awesome enough without it.)

The only downside:
I wish there were videos!  I'm such a visual learner that even the best directions and pictures aren't good enough for me.  I like to see it being done. (But the good news is I found out they are in the process of getting videos together!!)

It should be noted that if I have learned anything in my quest for the perfect carrier, it is that it takes time to learn how to use them and figure it all out.  But once you do, they are the handiest things ever!  And my  líllébaby COMPLETE Carrier will definitely be getting a lot of use!

So now, your chance to win a líllébaby COMPLETE Original Carrier of your own!

I like using giveaway tools or raffle copter compared with comments to enter giveaways. I find the comment entry hard to keep track of when there are lots of possible entries and the page keeps having to reload. Thanks

Does this pin count? http://pinterest.com/pin/571675746419479181/

I was trying to rein yours but it gave me an error 3 times! If this isn't a proper pin let me know so I can change it, please :)!

Keeping my fingers crossed for the black/black carrier! I really need something that can handle long outtings, but purchasing another carrier is definitely not affordable for me at the moment.

I liked using the tool. It was concise and I felt like all of my entries will count.

Tried several times, but it won't load properly. I would choose the airflow. I bought an everywhere sport on eBay, but didn't ask if the former owner was a smoker. So I love the carrier, but because of the smell, haven't used it as much. Being a military family on one income, I can't really afford to buy a new one. Maybe I will win the giveaway :)

Hoping I win ~ I really need a comfortable carrier since I have a toddler to chase as well as the baby on the way :D

Thanks for the giveaway. I like the new entry form. Easier than making separate comments, and much easier for you, I'm sure.

I LOVE the lillebaby COMPLETE and would love to win a second one. I particularly like that the baby can face forward in a comfortable and healthy way. I would pick the black. (I hope I win)

...Ahhh I just read the navy wife comment and now I hope she wins.
