    Love & Carry LoveTai Review

    I carry my baby a lot! Sure, mostly in wraps as that's what I find the most comfortable, but I'm also very proficient with any type of carrier and have tried a little bit of everything after almost four and a half years of carrying my two children. So, when I saw the opportunity to try this new -to-me meh dai, I didn't think twice and applied immediately.

     

    The meh dai I'm writing about is the LoveTai made by Love & Carry, a Ukranian brand. It was sent to me as a tester, by their retailer in the UK, Love To Be Natural.

     

    The one I received was made from 100% cotton wrap fabric, in light

  8. Laurna's Love & Carry One Plus Baby Carrier Review

    Laurna's Love And Carry Baby Carrier Review

     

    What a carrier! My first impression when I first opened the Love and Carry One Plus baby carrier was that how light and compact it was, even down to the lightweight buckles.

     

    The whole carrier is well made and so amazingly but at the same time isn't overwhelming. The padding is a lovely thickness without being overly bulky, and the shoulder strap padding seems longer than other carriers.

     

    For smaller babies it adjusts down without creating too much bulk around baby and feels very comfortable on. The waistband is easy to adjust to the size you need for baby, and the height cinches down with two straps at the top of the panel. The straps buckle underneath
