I am new to Onbuhimo carriers but I have tried several other carriers and wraps. This is by far one of my favorites! The shoulder straps are thick and cushioned, this helps make carrying my toddler (about 25 lbs) feel weightless. I don't have the best shoulders, so to have extra support and cushion is huge for me. The wrap used to make the carrier is so soft right out of the package! Anytime my toddler sees my pull the carrier out he gets geeked until he's up and snug on my back. I also love that I am able to adjust the body panel of this carrier, so it becomes a custom fit for us. I love how small this carrier folds up, I can easily add it to my LL Shopper Bag along with my other essentials, diapers, toys and snacks. If you're looking for a carrier that has comfort and fits any wearer, along with fitting any baby or toddler that needs a quick up, this is the carrier for you!
