Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Love! I bought this as my back up carrier (I already have an Airflow I love) and I absolute love it! I use the lumbar support from my Airflow when I is it so it's super comfortable. The colors are amazing in person!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my carrier Bought the essentials to have a second more lightweight carrier , also to be able to back carrier sooner as my 10 month old doesn't fit wide seat yet. We love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I originally bought the 6 position carrier but we lost it after only 2 months, used it only once. So I bought this as a replacement since summer was coming and I underestimated how hot it would get for my little guy. I love the pockets and the fact that I can just unzip the front part when it's hot outside and it keeps him comfortable. I also really like the color and pattern plus its easy to put on. One thing that wasn't clear when I bought it, and I'm still not sure about is whether it can be used outward facing. I don't think it can but I had read some people say that it could, the base seems too wide to do outward facing but maybe when he's a little bigger? I've tried to look it up and can't find an answer. The original one I ordered could be used outward facing and the base/seat part could be changed from wide to narrow and this one can't. So for me that's the only negative thing about this particular carrier, otherwise I love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the petite Purchased the essentials because of reviews, the PFA's mean that i can finally have a hight tight back carry! I am so in love (though the hood should be bigger)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great carrier!! I really love this carrier!! The only negative is i wish all of the lillebaby carriers came with lumbar support.. I ended up contacting the company about it and was able to buy one from them! But I think they should just sell the lumbar support with all carriers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love it but not suitable for extremely hot weather I bought this and initially I loved it. Pros: The colors were beautiful. I like that the straps and waistband are a little more flexible than the complete. I love that there is a large pocket. I love that the panel is non adjustable (because my baby is already 13 months. That might not be a great thing if you have a smaller baby).Cons: Non-removable hood. I could go on and on about this, but I just hate that it doesn't come off. Hood material. I wish it was the mesh material. I like a more breathable fabric if its going to be that close to my baby's airway. zip down panel. The big pocket is nice, but if you need to zip down the panel, you've lost your pocket. Not really all seasons. I live in a hot climate. It was 105 yesterday. It's warmer than my regular standard Tula, and much warmer than my airflow or embossed. I will only be able to really use it in the winter here, so the mesh is annoying since I don't need it anyway.Overall, I will still use it. I carry my baby on my back, and I really, really, really love the colors. My airflow is really my go-to carrier still, though. I thought I would be able to use a prettier one, but the airflow is more functional by far.Airflow's aren't much more expensive, so if you think you need something that will accommodate wearing in very hot weather, get the airflow. I wear it in the winter as well as the summer.I think the essentials all seasons is gorgeous and will wear it as a back up or in cooler weather. I do think that if you are buying it as a second carrier, if you have a bigger baby, if you don't live in extremely hot or humid weather, or if you don't carry for long periods of time, this would be great. I do wear it in the summer if I am just going to the store and I will be in air conditioning.Its comfortable, cute, and the pocket is great if you don't need to zip down the panel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loved it in front carry, but not back carry When I received this carrier I put my baby in a front carry right away, I was so excited to try it out. I have extensive experience in using baby carriers and I love that there is this budget option. I love the zip away panel and the shoulder straps. The body panel of this carrier fit my small 11mo perfectly. This carrier in a front carry was comfortable for me. Unfortunately when I tried it on in a back carry I found that the wide, stiff waist belt sat on and dug into my hips and rear. I believe this is due to my body shape, my waist is much smaller than my hips (by about 12 inches) and I am short-waisted. Because of the way the carrier sat I could feel after a few minutes of walking around that long term use would be painful. I was so disappointed that I had to return the carrier since I loved it so much in every other way. I think for many people this carrier wouldn't be a problem, the combination of my body type and the waist belt being wider and stiffer than the Complete (which I have found comfortable) is what makes a comfortable back carry in this carrier impossible for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for me I have tried other carriers from lillebaby and loved their fit but this one fit weird and uncomfortable. Unfortunately I have to return mine :/

New to baby carring but with my 3rd baby this is Necessary- with a lot of research and really like Lillebaby carrier all seasons however with a 22lb 7 month old I'm thinking I need the Essentials All Season? This works in 4 different possitions correct??

Asked by: MamaBear3
The great news is that you have lots of options with your 7 month old! The Essentials carrier is a 4 position carrier and from 15-45lbs can be used without the need for an infant insert. Our COMPLETE line of carriers will also work well for your baby, with a weight range up to 45lbs. The seat on the COMPLETE is adjustable to allow for 6 carrying positions, including forward facing-out in a comfy and ergonomic seated position.

How much weight can the carriers hold?

Asked by: Kldignin
The Essentials carriers have a weight range of 7-15lbs with an infant insert (available under the accessories tab on our website) and from 15-45lbs an infant insert is not needed. We do see many toddlers fit comfortably in an Essentials.

Asked by: Momtoallboys
The Essentials carriers have a weight range of 7-15lbs with an infant insert (found under the accessories tab) and 15-45lbs without the infant insert. This 4-position carrier works wonderfully for newborns through the toddler years.

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 January) and includes different features than the COMPLETE. 

Will the ESSENTIALS replace the COMPLETE?

Not at all! We believe the LÍLLÉbaby COMPLETE is the best baby carrier on the market and we will continue launching new exciting prints and options in the LILLEbaby COMPLETE line.

The ESSENTIALS, compared to the COMPLETE, is a simplified, traditional 4-position carrier option designed to compliment our higher end COMPLETE collection. We are proud to be able to offer it at under $90, allowing more families to experience the wonderful benefits of babywearing or to keep a second baby carrier as a backup (in the car, at grandma’s, etc) so that they are never without a babywearing option.

What are the weight limits?
The ESSENTIALS is recommended for children 15lbs-45lbs.  With the addition of the infant insert, which will be available in Spring 2016, it is approved for use from 7lbs-45lbs.


Does it have a hood?
Yes, the ESSENTIALS has a built-in, lightweight mesh hood which attaches with “hook and eye” elastic fasteners, and tucks neatly into the pocket when not in use.


Which carrying positions does the ESSENTIALS offer?
The Essentials is a classic 4-position carrier, which includes newborn with infant insert, front facing in, back, and hip. It does not have a forward facing option.


How do the straps adjust?
The straps features two-way adjusters so that you can easily tighten, carry with straps crossed, and loosen the carrier to breastfeed. In addition the ESSENTAILS features Perfect Fit Adjusters (PFAs) on the front of the straps which provide an additional way to customize the length of the straps and adjust the positioning of baby.


Can I cross the straps?


Is it easy to breast feed in it?
Yes. Both the two-way straps and the perfect fit adjusters simplify breastfeeding.


What is it made of?
Carrier is 100% cotton with a Cotton Mesh Hood


Do I need an infant insert?
Yes. The Essentials does not have a safety harness nor neck support like the COMPLETE, and a rolled blanket in place of the insert is NOT sufficient. You MUST use the LÍLLÉbaby infant insert for infants who are not ready to sit with their legs around the parent’s waist. The infant insert will be available in January.


How long does the Infant Insert need to be used?
The infant insert must be used until baby is ready to comfortably sit with his or her legs around the wearer’s waist. The age depends on the baby’s size and build and also the parent’s size and built, but normally is minimum 6 months.


Does it include a lumbar support?
No. Lumbar Supports are sold separately.


Why is it cheaper than the LÍLLÉbaby carriers?
The ESSENTIALS is made with high end fabric and material, but with fewer whistles and bells, it is simply less expensive to make than the COMPLETE.


Can I use the LILLEbaby COMPLETE waist extender on the ESSENTIALS?
No. The waist extender for the Essentials will be ready in early 2016.


Will there be other patterns or colors, in Airflow, etc.?
At this time we are launching the Essentials in cotton only.


Is it washable?
Yes. Machine washes on delicate cycle and hang to dry.


Can it be used to tandem carry?


19. Is this a limited edition?
No. It is here to stay!
