I was never a big 'baby wearer' with McKinlee (although I owned 3 or 4 different carriers for her!). With Madison, I had to be as I was juggling a newborn and a 22 month old toddler. I unfortunately never found a comfortable carrier when Madi was a baby, so I pretty much gave up after she was a few months old. I'd occasionally wear her, but it was hit or miss. Now that Madi is over 1, I have been trying to hold on to her baby-ness even more! What better way to keep a baby a baby, then to wear them!
LILLEbaby Complete 6-in-1 Baby Carrier
LILLEbaby was kind enough to send us this carrier to review, and we have been loving how versatile it is. I have to say Ryan is not really a fan of the color, but I don't really care. When I saw that they made their carrier in a gorgeous pink woven material, I just had to choose that one! We live in a neighborhood with lots of walking trails. There is even a small hike with a waterfall less than a mile from our house. The only real option when hiking with Madi is to wear her. We've loved using the LILLEbaby Complete for our family walks!

Who Can Use the Lillebaby Complete?
I wish we had this carrier when the girls were infants. You can absolutely use the complete carrier starting at birth. You don't need a separate infant insert which is so nice, especially with a summer baby. The complete carrier can be worn front-fetal, front-infant, front-outward, front-toddler, hip carry and back carry. I've never really worn Madi on my back, but this position was super comfortable and she seemed to enjoy it! You can wear a toddler in the Complete up to 45 pounds.
My Favorite Features
I've had low back pain for quite some time, and I love that the LILLEbaby Complete carrier comes with a really nice lumbar support. It helps reduce stress on my low back. Another feature that I love and really appreciate is the storage pocket. A carrier that we owned when Madi was a baby didn't have one! It was really frustrating not having a space to put your phone, keys, or a credit card. I love how versatile it is and how many different carrying options it gives you.
