COMPLETE Airflow Baby Carrier - Anchors Away is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 596.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent breathable carrier We purchased this carrier because we were looking for more waist support than our previous carrier. This carrier is great - lightweight, breathable for baby, comfortable, adjustable - and most importantly, baby LOVES it. This color was a good choice for us due to the fact that my husband uses it as well. We look forward to more adventures in her Lillebaby carrier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The airflow has been perfect for travels and every I've used the airflow since 4 months and am still happy with it at 19 mo the. From airports to train stations, moving overseas and hiking the hills of Germany, our Airflow has been amazing and so comfortable. We use a front carry for when we are in large crowds of the train stations and airports and a back-carry when walking and exploring. I love this carrier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver! We have had our Airflow for a year and a half now and I still love it. It has worked wonderfully during all seasons. The color is a beautiful cross between navy and sapphire blue which allowed for plenty of fun suck pad options. We have 4 kiddos from 18 years to 18 months. Our Lillebaby has allowed me to attend field trips and sporting events that would have been impossible with a stroller. It also allows to keep babe close while out and about. I can only imagine how difficult our daily life would have been without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Lille's!! Bought this carrier in July because my all seasons (which I also love) was just to warm in the summer. I keep one carrier in my car now so I can do all my shopping while wearing my baby. She's 6 months old now and still loves being worn. I wear my lille almost everyday. I even use it to do my housework when my baby doesn't want to be put down. As soon as I put her on, she naps. It's a win-win! And how can you go wrong with the donut print? It's soo cute !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from True blue love I bought this carried on sale even though I had a other one I wanted, just because the price was right. And I seriously can't tell you how much love I have for it. It's so light weight and breathable, it's adjusted with us as baby has brown, he's now 22 months and still loves going "ups". My son has a handful of allergies that make shopping carts inconvenient for us, so he goes up in the carrier instead and we really use it regularly. I really can't imagine my life without this carrier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for babies! I LOVE my lille and have bought 3 more since being introduced to the company. The carrier itself is perfectly made and makes carrying the babies a breeze. My back never hurts like it did in my infantino carrier and my baby is always comfy. The airflow provides a breathable fit and is cooler when babywearing.

My daughter and I both run hot so this works great for us! I also love the fact I do not need to buy an infant insert for my girl! One more thing... I love that this carrier fit me so well. I am a plus sized mama and was nervous about fit, this has more than enough room for my curves! Thank you Lillebaby!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than a tula! I bought this a couple weeks ago because I have tried everything and my 5 month old HATES carriers.. literally every single one we’ve tried. I basically gave up on carriers and then I was googling one night and came across Lillebaby and I figured, why not? First day we put it on and I put Chloe in it.. instant love. seriously it’s amazing. The fact you can face them outwards is the best! A little bulkier than a tula but comfortable and easy to figure out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this carrier. I upgraded from an ergo 360 and the support is so much better. I am looking into purchasing more because of the great features of this carrier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love EVERYTHING about this carrier!! After doing much research and trying on different brands my husband and I both agreed on the Lillebaby airflow. We have used it since our LO has been 9 months or so and are still going strong at 2.5 years old. Nicely padded, pretty air, for front and back, and supports while child is sleeping! Husband and I along with other friends and family have changed the setting for our own body types with ease and comfort. I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone looking for a long term carrier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable fit and great versatility Have had my airflow complete for several months now and wish I would have had it much sooner! The frosted rose pattern is so pretty and LO loves the closeness, especially as she is now teething. It is super comfortable for me and my husband both (there's a full foot difference in height) and we love being able to carry her multiple ways depending on what activities we have going on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My single most used baby item I don't know how i managed without one of these for my first baby. But baby number 2 was in one from birth until now. She's 14 months and walking so we use it a little less now but it still is amazing for shopping, airports, hiking, theme parks and house cleaning! Or just to lull her to sleep. She and I LOVE our airflow and big sis (4) even occasionally rises in it.

I have a new airflow complete carrier. I am finding that now that I use it to have my son forward facing that the front flap does not stay snapped at all. Am I missing something or does it just not stay flapped down to the snaps. 

Asked by: Kristen0816
It does not. I found that to be a PITB as well. However, I still would purchase and recommend this carrier!

I understand the Airflow Complete comes with a mesh hood.  Is the mesh hood see through?  Or, would it protect baby's head from UV rays?

Asked by: colleen
The mesh is breathable to provide maximum airflow. Our hoods have not been spf rated for sun protection, so please use your best judgement when wearing your baby outside for extended periods of time.

My baby is only 10 weeks can she still utilize the forward facing part of the carrier? 

Asked by: Brady
We recommend that you begin using the forward-facing out position when your baby has good head and neck control and they are tall enough that their face is not obstructed by the front panel. This will ideally be at 6 months or older. At 10 weeks old, your baby is not quite ready for that position, but they do grow quickly so it won't be long!

Can a 300 pound fit in the carrier straps?

Asked by: Mack

Hi I have a four month old that only want to be facing outward when she is awake. The part between the legs looks wide- is that okay for their hips? I've heard a lot about walkers and those kind of tous that are ruining the baby's hips. Thanks so much, A

Asked by: AKML
When using the forward facing-out position, the carrier should be in the narrow seat setting. We do recommend that you begin using that position when you baby has strong head and neck control, ideally at 6 months. Please feel free to email us directly at customerservice@lillebaby.com so we can help with any other questions you have with positioning!

I am looking for a conservative/universal print but am concerned with the darker colors getting too hot in the sun. Even with the mesh and breathable design are there any complaints or comments about the darker colors like Charcoal retaining heat?

Asked by: Hot Daddy
We haven't heard any complaints about the darker colors being hotter. Of course, in the hottest weather, ANY carrier is going to feel a bit stuffy after extended use. One benefit of darker colors is that they are less likely to show dirt or staining. The COMPLETE Airflow is the best choice for maximum breathability, whichever color you decide on.

Asked by: Cely_rosa
You have quite a bit of time before the toddler carrier will be the right fit for your baby. In general, we find that toddlers begin fitting in the CarryOn once they are wearing at least size 2T pants.

The COMPLETE grows with your child through all the baby wearing years from 7lbs to 45 lbs. The patented cupped seat adjusts to keep baby ergonomically seated in all six carry positions through every development stage.

 

2. LUMBAR SUPPORT – Increases comfort, maintains healthy posture and alignment, and prevents lower back strain. Combined with an extra sturdy waist belt to maximize parent's comfort.

 

3. TWO WAY-STRAPS NEW! – Enables wearer to carry "backpack style" or with straps crossed on the back. Dual adjustment buckles simplify breastfeeding and adjusting straps on the go.

 

4. SLEEPING HOOD – Features dual adjustment points to provide tailored support for baby's head while sleeping, sun protection while exploring, and privacy while nursing. Removable.

 

5. EXTRA TALL, EXTENDABLE TORSO – So comfortable your baby will fall asleep. Provides extra neck and back support and keeps taller babies secure in the carrier. The adjustable width gently cradles baby's head. Elastic straps provide support while allowing for movement and easy adjustment.

 

6. POCKETS NEW! – Large zippered storage pocket, plus easy-reach pocket for storing
hood and essentials.

 

7. WIDE, PADDED SHOULDER STRAPS & WAIST BELT - Evenly distribute baby's weight
for maximized comfort.

FETAL POSITION

AGE: 
  • Newborn to 3 months (minimum 7 lbs/3.2 kg). 
  • Use wide seat setting.
  • No extra insert needed.

BENEFITS:
  • Baby is face-to-face with you and protected from the surroundings. You can see and hear baby, and attend to her/his comfort.
  • Natural Comfort: baby is positioned in the natural newborn frog-legged position.

INFANT FACE-IN POSITION

AGE:
  • Newborn and up (minimum 7 lbs/3.2 kg).
  • Discontinue use when baby is ready to sit with legs around your waist.
  • Use narrow seat setting.

BENEFITS:
  • Allows for wearing your baby during the baby wearing gap (when baby has grown out of the fetal position, yet is too little to sit in a wide-seat carrier with legs around parent).
  • Offers a carrying position that other wide-seat carriers don’t.
  • Is a carrying alternative to the fetal position.
  • Ergonomic: the patented cupped seat keeps baby ergonomically seated in a broad seating position with good support of back, buttocks and thighs, and with a natural rounded back.
  • Baby is face-to-face with you and protected from the surroundings. You can see and hear baby, and attend to her/his comfort.
  • Neck support adjusts to fully support baby’s head and neck.
  • Comfortably nurse baby with easy-reach adjustment buckles on sides.
  • Privacy hood for nursing or sheltering from the sun and wind.

  • Speech development and communication enhanced: baby is able to see and mimic facial expressions to communicate.

TODDLER FRONT FACE-IN POSITION

BENEFITS:
  • Baby is face-to-face with you, protected from the surroundings.
  • Ideal for carrying tired or sleeping babies.

  • Tall torso facilitates baby's weight leaning into you and keeps baby’s center of gravity inside the carrier. This is much more comfortable compared with other brands where baby appears to be “hanging” out of the carrier.
  • The wide seat helps improves weight distribution between hip and shoulders so you can comfortably carry for longer periods of time.
  • Baby is face-to-face with you and protected from the surroundings. You can see and hear baby and attend to her/his comfort.

I’m having trouble figuring out how to use my COMPLETE carrier, help!
Check our instructional video page which shows how to use the COMPLETE in all positions and settings; http://lillebaby.com/instructional_videos.

 

What is the difference between the COMPLETE All Seasons and the COMPLETE Airflow?
The major difference between the COMPLETE Airflow and the COMPLETE All Seasons is that the Airflow is all mesh, and the All Seasons features a cotton covering, and a zip away panel that reveals the mesh under so you can control temperatures.

 

Do I need an infant insert with my COMPLETE carrier?
The LILLEbaby COMPLETE carriers do not require an infant insert. Beginning at 7 lbs you may wear baby in the carrier in either the fetal position with legs inside in the froggy position or legs out in the narrow seat setting. You may use the infant straps for added safety if you wish. We also recommend watching the instructional videos here: http://lillebaby.com/instructional_videos

 

What is the "scrunch" method? My baby is in between the "wide" and the "narrow" seat, what do I do?
You can achieve a wider support in the narrow seat setting by trying one or more of the following techniques:

1. Position baby further away from belt: Ensure baby has a “deep seat” by positioning baby toward the wider part of the carrier panel rather than close to or on the waistband itself. Achieving this is easiest if your waistband is flat and snug to your waist or hip. Try moving the waist belt higher or lower, maintaining a flat, snug, and level fit, until you find a position that is both comfortable for the wearer and positions baby on the widest part of the seat.

2. Widen seat by loosening seat flaps:

-Leave flaps unbuckled, but folded in underneath baby’s bottom. Pull on each side of the seat to extend the fabric over baby’s thighs to achieve a widened seat.
-Alternatively, leave the flaps hanging loose. This results in a slightly wider seat compared to the flaps folded in and buttoned
-Once baby is in the carrier, reach inside and adjust where baby is sitting by lifting and moving baby’s bottom further away from your belt.
-Always make sure to tighten straps to ensure baby is sitting snug to your body. However, never over tighten – always allow for the natural c-curve of babies spine.
-Note: “Scrunching” the seat flaps on the waist belt to slightly narrow the wide seat setting is not recommended because it can warp the carrier’s waist belt.

 

What is the difference between the COMPLETE and the CarryOn?
The CarryOn is designed for larger children, as it goes from 20 up to 60 pounds. It has a roomier panel, and more adjustability in the straps to get a good comfortable fit. Children can be worn on the hip, the back or facing in, in 3 positions.

The Complete has a fold down neck support so smaller babies can look out and be worn facing forward. Children can be worn facing in, and out, on the hip an on the back in a variety of ways because the width of the seat adjusts.
The Complete weight range is from 7 pounds at birth to 45 pounds with no need for an infant insert, you cannot use the CarryOn with children under 20 pounds.

 

Which is more breathable, the COMPLETE Airflow or the COMPLETE Embossed?
The Embossed LILLEbaby carrier is made with a soft, light and highly breathable microfiber fabric often used in sports gear. There is no padding between the layers in the body of the carrier which make it super lightweight and it allows more airflow than most padded cotton carriers, but not more breathable than our Airflow carrier.

 

Can I use the LILLEbaby COMPLETE waist extender on the ESSENTIALS?
Not at this time.

 

How does the ESSENTIALS compare to the COMPLETE?
The COMPLETE is a 6-position carrier with a number of unique features. The ESSENTIALS was designed to offer the best solution in the more simplified, traditional soft structured carrier category. It features 4 carrying positions (with the optional infant insert launching in Spring 2016) and includes different features than the COMPLETE

 

What is the infant safety harness for?
The interior harness strap in the COMPLETE carriers adds the necessary security to allow parents to use a rolled-up blanket of their choice in their carrier without it creating a fall hazard. The harness is not common in SSC in the US, but safety certifications in other countries, like Japan, have started requiring harness straps to reduce the risk of error when using an infant insert or positioning the baby in the carrier. We are proud to be among the first to offer this helpful safety feature.

 

Do you use a flame retardant on your carriers?
It's Important to LILLEbaby that we make the safest products for children that we can. We test extensively for both voluntary and mandatory standards. Our products contain no lead, toxic dyes, phthalates, flame retardants and are CPSIA compliant and ASTM safety certified. The padding on our shoulder pads is comprised of a non-toxic PE, a material frequently used in baby mattresses. The waist belt is also made of non-toxic PEVA material. Many baby products (bibs etc.) are now using PEVA as it is considered “greener” and safer than PVC etc.
