Rated 5 out of 5 by from stylish with great features Love this carrier more than any other. It is very comfortable and the padded shoulder straps are what really make this stand out above any other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have! Out of all the baby gear I have for my daughter, this is the one thing I couldn't live without! I am blessed with a very snugly baby who won't allow me to set her down long enough to get anything done. My carrier is comfortable enough for both of us to wear for long periods of time, allowing me to get things done around the house. We also get a lot of use out of it going to her big brothers' football games. I'm able to watch with my hands free for cheering. It keeps her warm when the weather is chilly, and keeps us both cool in the heat when we leave the front panel unzipped. I had purchased a cheaper brand first, but couldn't wear it longer than a few minutes because my back would hurt so bad. With my Lillebaby, there is no back pain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO comfy! I bought my lille about a month ago and I'm loving it! I borrowed one from a friend for a couple months and liked it so well I decided to buy my own! It's so comfy and breathes well. My baby is super hot blooded and so is her daddy, but they can stand to be in the carrier together without overheating. Highly recommend a lillebaby!

Does this carrier need newborn insert? And does the part where their legs go get smaller? Most carriers have snaps to make that part smaller since their legs are shorter and shouldn't be opened as wide as a toddlers

Asked by: JenJoc
Carriers from the Essentials line do require the use of an infant insert for the first 7-15lbs and do not have an adjustable seat. Essentials carriers are classically designed 4 position carriers. For a LILLEbaby carrier that has an adjustable seat that can be narrowed or widened based on the age and size of your baby, you will want to consider a carrier from the COMPLETE line.

 Am I able to use this carrier without an infant insert with my 17 pound four month old ?

Asked by: Angelap
The infant insert is required for 7-15lbs. At 17lbs of size, it is likely your baby is large enough to go without.

Can the toddler be in the front facing position with this carrier?

Asked by: blueeyes1687
The Essentials carrier is a 4 position carrier, which does not allow for forward facing-out. If that position is important to you, you may want to consider a COMPLETE carrier, which does allow for an ergonomic forward facing-out carrying position.

Can you carry a baby front facing in this carrier? Thanks a lot!

Asked by: Annah
The Essentials style of carrier is a four position carrier, and cannot be used forward facing out. For that position, you may want to look at the COMPLETE style, which does allow for an ergonomic seat while forward facing-out.

What is the difference between complete all seasons and essentials all seasons?

Asked by: Stacey88
COMPLETE carriers have 6 carrying positions available, include a lumbar support and have an adjustable seat and neck support. No infant insert is necessary with carriers from the COMPLETE line. Essentials carriers have 4 carrying positions, and an infant insert is necessary to use an Essentials from 7-15lbs. The Essentials is a conventionally styled carrier, without an adjustable seat and neck support. The lumbar support is not included with your Essentials purchase (however they are available as a separate purchase). The COMPLETE All Seasons and Essentials All Seasons both feature temperature control panels, a mesh inside and a cotton outside. There is a panel that can be zipped up in cool weather, or zipped down to help cool baby off in hot weather.

There is no mandatory length necessary to stop using the infant insert. When your son has great head/neck and trunk control OR weighs 15lbs, he could be ready to use just the infant pillow in your Essential carrier.

The LILLEbaby COMPLETE style of carrier can be used starting at 7lbs, with no infant insert necessary and can be used in a narrow seat setting.

Hi I'm trying to decide which carrier would be best. My son is 18 months and 25lbs. We are moving to Africa which is roasting in the summer and freezing in the winter 

Asked by: Tasharwt
Our suggestion would be to look at the All Seasons style of carriers, either in the 4 position Essentials line, or the 6 position COMPLETE style. With a temperature control panel, you can leave the front panel unzipped in hot weather (it rolls up to stay neat and tidy) or zipped up in cold weather. Either style will fit your son for quite some time with a weight limit up to 45lbs.

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?
Yes.

 

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?
Yes.

 

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