As baby gets older it can be more difficult to get a secure and comfortable fit
Value for money
Been using for 7 months, it's great when baby is parent facing you can snuggle them in with a great support on your back and have them at a good height to be safe. As they get bigger and in the world facing position you have to have the straps looser around your back to have the little one at a safe height and to allow yourself to see while wearing it. Now this in itself is not a big deal but wearing it for a while will lead to backache as you are not as supported as you should be ( note: my LO is a big baby, 99th centile, so parents of children lower on the centile charts may not have the same issues)
My little one is 14lbs and I tried this out to go for a walk. Baring in mind I do suffer with my back I was in agony within about 10 minutes! I think it would be fine for a short walk or if you're very fit but I found this too painful on my shoulders and back to use any more.
I have used my Easyfit carrier a couple of times but after (and during) each use have had sore shoulders.
My boy isn’t the largest, weighing 15.3lbs at 4 months, but it feels as though his weight is not evenly distributed in this carrier.
He does though feel very secure once in.
Do find it relatively difficult to wrestle him in and find the sling I use around the house a lot easier (though not as sturdy).
I am yet to find a decent carrier which doesn’t cost the earth which I feel is safe and comfortable.
I bought this baby carrier and I was not very impressed as it’s very complicated to get on and try put baby in on your own. It’s not very secure and not easy to adjust either. The only positive is that it’s soft on baby’s skin.
This is easy to put on but feels uncomfortable after around half hour.
Not very high so feels like baby is pushed into your chest (I found this worrying as baby seemed to be pushed into my breasts).
The baby is well supported in the neck and back and she seems comfy and happy.
Does not let you have baby facing out.
I recently purchased this to help carry my 2 month old in whilst out with my toddler. Overall I really like it, it’s comfy to wear and easy to get on. I’m not took keen on how low it sits on the body despite tightning as much as it can go but it does It does its job.
Such a brilliant product especially to get things done around the house never mind taking her out and about.
When she just wanted to be next to me it was great to get things done
Myself and baby felt secure as she was so relaxed she use to fall asleep and it was so easy to get her in and out of the sling. Would definitely recommend this product.
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!
