Infantino Flip2Front Feature List
Most Suitable For
Those who are on a budget and are looking for a functional baby carrier without a lot of the extras that you will get with the more expensive carriers.
Due to the very basic ergonomics it is not a carrier you want to use for long days out, but for a quick trip to the park or the mall it will do the job just fine.
If Dad will be the one doing most of the carrying then that will also give you some more leeway with some of the shortcomings of this particular carrier.
For those who live in a warmer climate the breathable mesh will also allow your baby to stay comfortable for longer.
Should You Buy It?
If your baby is still on the small and light side, and you only plan on shorter periods of baby wearing then this will be a suitable carrier.
There are three main limitations that would make this unsuitable for some and it will be worth asking yourself these three questions:
If you answered yes to any of these questions then perhaps another carrier would be more suitable. if you answered no then you may have found that sweet spot on performance and price that will work for you.
This is a handy carrier for those who only intend fairly light use of their carrier, and want to stick to a budget option.
For a reasonable outlay you get a basic carrier with a comprehensive structure to secure your baby. You give up a few add ons like storage, and ergonomics. But if light use is all you need then this will do the job well.
