What We Don't Like

  • Not that breathable (all seasons and airflow models would be better in this sense)
  • Pricey compared to some
  • Some find it difficult to get on and off by themselves
  • minus-circle
    Not the best fit for smaller parents

The LÍLLÉbaby Complete baby carrier original is widely regarded as one of the best on the market. 

This is thanks in part to a highly adjustable, versatile design that allows 6 different carry positions depending on your baby's age, size and preferences. 

One of the great things about the LÍLLÉbaby Complete original is that it can accommodate a newborn without an infant insert and can accommodate toddlers well too - if you're looking for just one carrier to cover all the periods of your babies development, this is a great option for that. 

The original model isn't that breathable, compared to the other models (all seasons, air flow) but the fact that you don't need an infant insert does help in that regard, when it comes to carrying newborns.  

Some find it difficult to put on by themselves at first, and some find that it feels too big (if you're around 5' and ~ 100lbs, it may feel too big for you). 

But overall it's a very versatile, comfortable and secure carrier for those wanting that one carrier that does everything.   

Lillebaby Complete Baby Carrier REVIEW

LÍLLÉbaby The COMPLETE Original SIX-Position, 360° Ergonomic Baby & Child Carrier, Black of the Same Stripe - Multi-Position Ergonomic Baby Carrier for Infants Babies Toddlers

The Lillebaby Complete baby carrier is one of the most versatile baby carriers going around, with 6 carry positions, a convenient pocket, adjustable newborn head support, removable hood and adjustable strap lengths to fit a variety of body sizes. 

The carrier also comes with lumbar support (removable) for better comfort for the caregiver. 

It does everything that a structured carrier is supposed to do, but just does it a little better than most.

Who is this product for?

The LÍLLÉbaby complete baby carrier is great for anyone who wants just one carrier to grow with their baby and who want all the bells and whistles that a carrier can provide. 

This is an all-in-one solution that can grow with your baby from 7lbs to 45lbs and can be worn in a variety of ways to accommodate different babies and different parents. 

What’s included?

You get the carrier and the removable lumbar support and removable hood (for sleeping and sun protection).  

No infant insert is required to use this carrier for newborns. Baby must be at least 7lbs though.

How to Use It

See the video below for how to use the Lillebaby Compete with your baby facing in.

The Lillebaby is a great all-in-one solution for parents/caregivers looking to have just one carrier that can accommodate their baby from newborn to pre-schooler and at a reasonable price-tag. 

It's extraordinarily versatile, with 6 carry positions, adjustable seat width, removable hood, newborn head support, adjustable strap lengths and a built in pocket. 

Maybe not ideal for smaller parents/caregivers with some people feeling that it was large and not that breathable compared to the all-seasons and air flow models. 

But all round its a great buy and, though not the cheapest type of carrier you can buy, it represents really good value-for-money, IMO, given that you only have to buy it one.
