Body (neck support up)  18.5” –not including waist.

Can I babywear while exercising?
Yes. Once your doctor clears you for exercise, you may want to include your baby. Power walking should be fine when baby is at least 6 months and have developed strong neck muscles. Never jog with a baby carrier. Always bend in the knees. Never lean forward.
  
Washing instructions:
The wash instructions are located on the warning label of your carrier (for future reference).
Machine wash cold, mild detergent, no bleach. Hang dry.
 
Can you breastfeed in the lillebaby COMPLETE?
Yes.
In order to have the optimal experience we suggest that you play around with the different positions to see what works best for you. We recommend practicing at home a few times in front of a mirror in order to get the hang of it. Wearing a nursing shirt may also be helpful but is definitely not necessary since you can cover up with the hood or the neck support of the lillebaby carrier to ensure privacy.
Use extra caution when nursing in your carrier to ensure that baby has a clear airway. Be sure to reposition your baby to a more upright positioning after nursing.
 
Do you use flame retardant in your carrier?
We don’t use any flame retardant in the carrier and still meet the California as well as higher flammability standards.

ESSENTIALS - Original - Silver Cloud is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 110.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply wonderful! I love this carrier! It's so simple and so comfortable. I used my sister in law's complete for the first 4 month of my son's life and like it so wasn't sure about the essentials. But I am so happy with it, it's the perfect budget carrier. The pocket is huge and can gold my cell phone, pacifier, and debet card / money so it's perfect for shopping and not needing a purse. The drop paneling is perfect for when my LO falls asleep because he kicks off body heat like no other! And don't get me started on the print, it's absolutely beautiful!! This is the first carrier I have every purchased and I've never been happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This carrier stands out above the rest! I have tried multiple carriers for my babies at different sizes and stages and my Lillebaby is, hands down, my favorite! I used to deal with an aching back after a long day of baby wearing. My Lillebaby carrier has given the perfect amount of back support so that there is no pull on my neck and shoulders. Also, the storage pockets for my phone, keys, sunscreen...I can't imagine carrying a separate bag again for those necessities. And can I say how cute it is! I love the fun, modern designs and colors they come in. Didn't break the bank and had everything that had been lacking in other carriers. My baby is happy and comfy and so is his momma!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around! I bought this a few weeks ago and I am so glad I did. I went back and forth between the Lille and another carrier, but ultimately chose this one for the ability to carry my daughter more than one way, and for the ability to unzip the front for the mesh barrier. We live in Texas, so to be able to make it cooler for both of us while I'm wearing her is a huge positive! The instructions to adjust the straps are straightforward and it is easy to wear. I was nervous it would be to complicated, but it wasn't at all. The lower back support is excellent and my daughter loves being worn in it. I would highly recommend it!

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 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, supportive I have tried many carriers over the years, a friend had given me an ergo baby carrier, which was soo much more comfortable and supportive than those I'd tried before, but after much use and 4 babies( not including before use) it stopped working properly and so I was looking again at various baby carriers...and so many that were similar to the ergo had come out I wanted to check them out...I spent a couple weeks reading and looking at various ones, I had been receiving emails from the Lille baby co. B/c I'd signed up while I was pg, I found this one, I loved the colors, and it looked pretty supportive and comfortable, but it said it had hip support...which is very helpful! I have def. enjoyed it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfy! I looked into lillebaby because of all the beautiful prints. But then I saw reviews that talked about how comfy the straps were, and I knew I needed one! The last carrier we used for my first son used to hurt my back and shoulders and my husbands too, but we're big baby wearers, so we knew we wanted something for our second baby that would allow us to wear him for hours without feeling back or shoulder pain. And our lillebaby didn't fail us!!! We wear him everywhere, and he is so snug and comfy in there, and it's easy to put on by myself. I just can't say enough good things about LÍLLÉbaby! I am already trying to convince my husband to let me order another print!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Comfortable for Me and Baby! Lillebaby recently ran a promotion to send in an old baby carrier to be recycled and in return receive a coupon on an order. I love that this company cares about being green! So I used my coupon to get an airflow essentials carrier, which I thought would be awesome for summer. I use my new carrier all the time! It's so easy to put on and is really comfortable to carry my 14 lb baby. The airflow option is so nice, especially since I like hiking and it can get pretty sweaty in the summer time. I love that the weight is distributed to my waist. The hood makes it easy for baby to nap on the go, and the design is cute but neutral enough to match most clothes. I only wish I would have gotten this carrier from the get-go!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New and improved I recently bought the Essentials- All Seasons (fall in fern) carrier. First, I'd like to thank Lillebaby for listening to their customers and improving their products. I owned a Lillebaby about 5 years ago that didn't have the nicer, more comfortable features that their newer lines have now. Second, thank you for having beautiful and fun patterns to pick from. It's nice to be able to pick something closer to my personality and color preference.
