We purchased this carrier before heading on a two week long vacation in Europe, it came highly recommended by a friend. Our daughter is 24 lbs and almost 1 year old. The carrier is pretty comfortable for extended periods, there is good support. However, the shoulder straps have a tendency to slip off when our daughter wiggles around, even when we’ve tightened them as much as possible. But I’m giving the carrier two stars because a week into our vacation the plastic clip that holds the carrier around the waist partially broke. We can still use the carrier, but it’s definitely not as secure. We are really disappointed that it broke a week after we started using it. It was also a bummer because we had no other way to transport our daughter on our trip - we did not pack a stroller. I’m not sure I would purchase this carrier again.
