COMPLETE Airflow Baby Carrier - Anchors Away is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 240.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Addicted to Babywearing! I love how this beautiful baby carrier lets me snuggle my baby and get things done around the house at the same time. (She is very high maintenance and hates being put down.) We love it for walks outside too. My baby girl is absolutely my favorite thing to wear!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable I bought the the lillebaby complete airflow after trying a different carrier that requires an infant insert and getting way too hot! I'm glad I did- not only is the lillebaby much cooler, I found it to be much more comfortable as well! I can't wait to use it more as my little one grows!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features The carrier is easy to put on, is light weight, and very supportive. My son has down syndrome and it's great support helps him to stay upright, despite his low muscle tone. I think this is a very wonderful carrier that should be shared to the down syndrome community!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and airy! I still love carrying my toddler as the stroller is a nuisance riding the subway (stairs are the enemy!). He is 20m and weighs 27lbs so I hadn't been able to squeeze him into the Bjorn in awhile. My new LilleBaby is amazing on my back and he fits into it no problems. I wish I had bought one from the start!p

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have baby item! I bought the expensive swing and the expensive play mat and anything else you can think of that you only use for a few months. I never wanted to invest in a carrier until now. This is a must have. I feel like I must tell everyone I know to get a Lillebaby. It will change your way of life! So far we have ventured to a hike on the beach, the boardwalk, amusmentparks, even a NASCAR race. I have been able to wear for hours on end. The back carry is my favorite. Thank you! Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect This is my second Lille baby carrier. I keep one in my house and the other in my car. With a toddler to chase after, this makes holding a newborn easy!! I recommend this carrier to all of my friends. Both my girls really enjoy the closeness and comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Carrier This my first baby and I was having a hard time deciding on a carrier. I am very glad I went with Lillebaby. This carrier is very breathable which is great for being out in this Arizona heat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best carrier ever I am so happy I finally invested in the airflow! NC heat is no joke. Airflow is the way to go if you live somewhere warm! Back support, comfortable straps, adjustable straps make it even better. I also love the fact the hood is mesh too. Go buy one!

Does this require a separate infant insert? Also it is very breathable in hot muggy weather?

Asked by: Mary E
The COMPLETE Airflow is our coolest carrier, with the 3D mesh body panel, and is a great choice for hot summer weather. There is NO infant insert required to use a COMPLETE carrier starting at 7lbs.

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.

When do you plan to restock the complete airflow in champagne?

Asked by: Daniellealfaia
We don't have an exact date that will restock, but anticipate it will likely be in late July. You may be able to find a retailer near you with it in stock currently. You can visit our store locator here: https://www.lillebaby.com/storelocations

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!

What is the maximum weight your child can be.

Asked by: Angel35
COMPLETE carriers have a weight range of 7-45lbs, you can find measurements for the carriers here: https://www.lillebaby.com/measurements

Can a 300 pound fit in the carrier straps?

Asked by: Mack
We have found that most Moms who are a 22/24 are able to use the carrier without the waistbelt extension strap. That adds another 9 inches in addition to the 52-54 (some carriers vary a little) inches that the belt has available. A great place to check for measurements is our measurement chart here: https://www.lillebaby.com/measurements

What's the age limit on this carrier?

Asked by: Glutman
There is no age limit on our carriers as babies and children vary so greatly in size. The COMPLETE line of carriers has a weight limit of 45lbs, and we find many families wearing their children in a COMPLETE carrier well into the toddler years.

What are the weight limits on the COMPLETE, the CarryOn and the ESSENTIALS baby carriers?
The COMPLETE does not require an infant insert and is recommended for children 7lbs-45lbs.

The ESSENTIALS can be used from 7 lbs with the required use of the Infant Insert . The Essentials is approved for use without the insert from 15-45 lbs.

 

What are the differences between the COMPLETE, the CarryOn and the ESSENTIALS?
Please see our Compare Chart for a side by side look at the differences in these carriers.

 

What are the number of carrying positions I can use on the COMPLETE, the CarryOn and the ESSENTIALS?
The COMPLETE has 6 carry positions: fetal, infant, toddler, hip and back.
The CarryOn has 3 carry positions: toddler, hip and back.
The ESSENTIALS has 4 carry positions: infant (with insert), toddler, hip and back.

 

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.
