I bought this carrier on a whim because it is so beautiful. It’s lovely and soft in person. I usually carry my 15 lbs 7 month old in front in a Lillebaby SSC. I liked the idea of having a simple back carry option since she is just now sitting independently. I am surprised how much we both like the Onbuhimo. I find it just as comfortable as the Lillebaby, and less cumbersome. My daughter really seems to like it.
The small negative things:
It could be cooler. I find it comfortable, temperature-wise but I think my baby gets hot in it.
I wish it was machine washable.
I wish the good was easier to put up while wearing. My baby started falling asleep while we were walking the dogs and I didn’t have anyone with me to help adjust the hood, and couldn’t do it myself.
