I now use a wrap as I didn't feel that this supported my back. I also struggled with the instructions they weren't clear with how to fit your newborn in so in the end I went on YouTube. Once you know how to put baby in given the price compared to others it's ok for a short trip to the shop but I wouldn't take long trips or walks with it.
I purchased this after having a caesarian and not being able to bump the pram up the flight of stairs to my maisonette. This is very awkward to put on-if you put it on yourself first you a nt get your baby in, or you have to put baby in then try to strap it around yourself whilst holding them!
There is no head or neck support so I defiantly wouldn't recommend for newborns and the the spacing of the straps do not evenly distribute weight across your back so it is a a strain!
If worn for a longer period of time can cause back and shoulder pain

I bought this carrier to make my school runs a bit easier as baby isn't always keen on her pram and I have to go back and forth to school 3 times a day. I found they carrier easy and quick to put on and take off. The carrier has good support for baby from a young age. The only down side I found was when wearing for longer periods of time it can cause shoulders and back to ache.
I actually got this carrier for dad to use as he could not figure out how to tie a cloth sling (he isn’t much better with all the buckles on this one) product works well baby loves it as she can see around her. Very good price however because of how the straps lie my shoulders, back and chest are always very sore after carrying her. Good for getting on quick if baby won’t settle in the house but not recommended for long walks
I hardly use it as my baby did not like it first. He is used to it now as he needed to accept it he has to be in it sometimes. I bought this product to travel. I visit my family often so I needed help at the airport. I prefer to carry my baby in my arms without it but when I need two hands it is really useful.
I've use it only once as I went doing groceries and I didn't want to use the car seat. It was a big mistake. For newborns it is not good to use this product. From now one I stay with local groceries and using carrycot and for a long distance I'll use car seat or special trolley for babies ( on retailer that I know it has). Probably I'll use it later when baby will be 4-5 months old.
This carrier is too week for the purpose and not suitable for any age

This Chicco Easyfit Carrier was a huge disappointment, it could not keep baby thigh enough while he was a newborn, it felt like he is always collapsing to one side or the other, and when he finally grew into it, he was already 9 kgs so we could not use the carrier any more. It is not at all easy to put on compared to other buckle carriers and it does not provide enough support to the back or the hips of the baby, and it is very uncomfortable for the parent. The material is also very uncomfortable in warmer weather. Although it has a good price, I wish I spent a bit more and bought a proper carrier right away. I would recommend you research carriers before you buy anything, as this product is not even acknowledged by carrier and sling expert websites.
It looks very good, is quite cheap compared to most of the baby carriers. It feels secure although the first few time wasnt very confident with it. Does feel slightly uncomfortable when baby is in, the straps do dig in the skin. Perhaps you get what you pay for - good for the short term.
Good value for money, easy to wear and put baby in and remove
Can be more comfortable by having extra padding where baby's head is

In general though im quite pleased with it but would have certainly liked it to be padded to make baby more comfortable.
Rubbish design and doesn’t provide good support for baby or wearer. Not suitable for newborns and only a bit more confident now baby is 6 months. Flap doesn’t stay down for front facing. Clips placed too high. Padding gets in way so baby I want get get breathing space.
Love my baby carrier, put over your head and clip baby in. But once baby is in it hard to adjust the height of baby once in on your own, and you do have to undo the straps to get in and out. But the carrier itself is brilliant, baby doesn’t feel like she is going to fall out and you can have them facing away from you too!
