Before the arrival of Scarlett, we knew we needed a baby carrier but we were unsure of which brand/type exactly. There are just too many of these in the market. Our plan is to invest in just one good carrier that would last us. We always thought that the sole purpose of a baby carrier is to make life easier for parents when they are out and about, somewhat like a substitute for a stroller.
We had initially set our eyes on a carrier of another brand that allows both forward and back facing but eventually got a baby carrier from Tula after an incidental recommendation by a friend. It was the best buy ever. Scarlett was a very high need baby, to be honest; she wants to be carried all the time. The lack of sleep and the fact that we are inexperienced new parents plus her behaviour really pushed us to our limits both physically and mentally during the infancy period.
