belle Baby Carriers are one of the best baby carriers I have reviewed. I love the way they hold my daughter close to me. She is still of the weight, where when we go out, I can carry her in this carrier. It is for babies 8-30 lbs. I received the Organic Earth belle Baby Carrier to review. It is handmade in the USA and is made from 100% undyed Romanian hemp canvas, The fabric has been prewashed for softness and has a nobby, textured appearance and wonderful smell. The inside liner is 100% Organic cotton and hemp blended undyed ultra-soft fuzzy fleece. It kind of reminds me of the burlap sacks, but not rough like that. The inside is super soft and comfortable and my daughter loves to be in it. It also comes with the detachable head support panel made of the same outer hemp fabric and inside fleece liner. That is very nice for the little newborn babies!
I also love the fact that baby can face front or back, very comfortably and allows for direct contact for a stronger bond and allows for discreet nursing too! The buckles on the Organic Earth are the same as those used on high-end outdoor backpacks, and the waistbelt rings are durable stainless steel. Wastbelt, shoulder straps and seat are lightly padded. So you have comfort and the security of knowing that baby is safe and sound right on you!
belle Baby Carriers site has a lot of useful information on it like the page on how to wear your baby carrier and the instructions on how to use it properly. It also has a page that explains the benefits of babywearing.
The Belle Difference (taken from their site):
Anatomy of a Belle
Cross-over straps with high-end closed cell foam for comfort
Nylon buckles and webbing are the same materials found on high-end mountaineering backpacks
Independent waistbelt brings weight down to your hips instead of shoulders. Steel rings and a natural rubber yoga mat pad provide a fail-proof mechanism to secure the waistbelt.
Baby can face in our out. Baby sits in a natural ergonomic position that supports the developing spine. Light padding in the leg area provides increased comfort for your baby.
Removable head support panel cradles your sleeping baby. Buy Head Support
Now, the only thing that I would make different on this particular baby carrier is that the straps, when on bare shoulders (think Summertime), the Organic bell Carrier is uncomfortable. The burlap type feel, though it is much softer then that, is still scratchy feeling on my bare shoulders. I don’t know if the others are like that, but the organic one I received is like that.
So, all in all, this carrier is great. My daughter loves it and I feel like it is very sturdy and strong. It is well made.
You can purchase the belle Baby Carriers on their site. They have a good selection.
