I am posting my Love & Carry Air review because I want to share the experience and to suggest an alternative especially for budget conscious mommies who want a quality yet affordable tool for baby wearing. This cost Php 4,000 + shipping fee.
How’s my baby wearing experience? Great! I find it more personal and interactive than strollers especially when we’re out. As I love talking and describing whatever we pass on to my son. I am sure that he could hear me, compare to when we’re using stroller. Also I get to kiss him often and see his reaction every time and he likes to taste it — it soothes him — thank you drool pads!
I have also joined a forum in facebook re baby wearing and am learning a lot. Baby wearing helps a lot of mothers to be closer to their child and most of all to be flexible and be able to do more.
Happy Baby wearing Mommies… I hope that somehow, I am able to help you with your SSC decision making.
Enjoys Babywearing my son,
