    The Baby Whisperer of Baby Carriers

    If you're on the fence about buying this, hop on over...you will be so glad that you did. I swear this is the baby whisperer of baby carriers. Prior to my MiaMily I used a Bjorn, an Ergobaby, a Lillebaby, and a number of slings and wraps. No, I don't have multiple children that I've cycled carriers through, I have one 7-month-old spunky little guy who knows what he likes and from what I've learned, what he very much doesn't like. BOB Jogging Stroller? Nope. All aforementioned carriers (prior to the MiaMily)? Nope. Car seat? Double nope. Wear your baby they said, they'll love the closeness to mom, they said. Maybe I smell funny, but that was not the case over here. I wanted to take the bambino for a walk with the dog. I wanted to walk to Starbucks (can I get an amen?!) I wanted to do some dishes and get the laundry done. Nope. Fuss, fuss, wiggle, struggle and fuss a bit more. Other than these instances he's a really happy little dude, too! My anxiety was through the roof! I didn't want him to be unhappy/uncomfortable by any means and despite reading every bit of instructions and watching umpteen youtube videos on proper ways to wear every carrier, wrap, and sling he just wasn't having it. And then.... There I was spending my nightly precious moments where I should be sleeping, lying in bed playing on Instagram when I received a notification that "MiaMilyBabyCarrier" "liked" one of my posts. Clicking to check out the profile was one of the best decisions I've made recently. I looked, I learned, I read reviews and decided to give one. more. carrier. a whirl. Hallelujah!!!!!! I'd give this thing a million stars if I could - my bambino LOVES this thing. Front facing, facing inward, riding on my back, sitting just on the hipster seat....NO MORE FUSSING. Smiles, lots and lots of smiles. You guys, I did dishes and cleaned my kitchen for an hour yesterday with him on my back. Today I vacuumed the entire upstairs and did laundry. He fell asleep. Baby Whisperer. We've done 4-mile hikes, I wear him around the house in all different positions....oh, almost forgot to mention the hour and a half we spent at the grocery store the other day without a meltdown at checkout. The little seat makes all the difference in the world. He has to be so much more comfortable than when he was in all of the other carriers (still not sure why he hates the BOB but that's for another review.) Not only is he comfortable, the MiaMily is really comfortable for me, too. Most recently prior to this, I was rocking the Lillebaby All Seasons which I thought was comfortable because of the lumbar support pad in the back....oh no....this is hands down much more comfortable. But let me back the baby wagon up for a second and fill you in on another reason why I switched from the Lillebaby to the MiaMily, and no, it wasn't just because I like to spend money frivolously on baby stuff (I'm talking to you, dear husband.) When I started wearing little man front facing in the Lillebaby, he seemed much more content than any other position so I thought, "Okay, great. We can just do this all of the time and at least get our walks in." But, what I didn't account for was him being so comfortable front facing that he would fall asleep and then his poor little head is just flopped forward, chin on chest. The recommendation is to switch to inward facing when they start to get tired/they want to sleep....well, that sounds fine in theory, except that the seat configuration for front facing versus inward face is different for proper leg/hip support. Changing the seat configuration in the Lillebaby on the fly is no easy task. You cannot hold your precious cargo and do it at the same time - and as much as I was tempted to just lay my 6 month old over in the grass and tell my dog to watch him, I had too much on our calendar to deal with CPS that day. The beauty of the MiaMily is because your babe is sitting on a seat, there's no need to change anything to switch between front facing and inward facing. I actually managed to do it mid-walk the other day when he fell asleep front facing without even waking him. Worth every penny right there! But wait, there's more. (High five to you if you're still reading!) The creators of this carrier really, truly thought of everything. Removable drool pads...check! Sun cover...check! Zip out section to mesh for warmer weather...check! HUGE, GIANT, pocket under the seat...heck yeah! (I keep wipes and a diaper in that bad boy so I don't have to lug a diaper bag a lot of places. AND....THE STRAPS ZIP OFF SO YOU JUST HAVE THE SEAT. Yes, this is exciting enough to warrant all caps. I use just the seat to carry him into the doctor's office and exhausted moms' mouths drop everywhere. No more tired arms. No more feeling like at any minute you're going to drop sweet baby cakes because he/she just wants to be held and every last ounce of your strength is gone. Did I mention this thing is AWESOME?! Well, there you have it folks, one of only a handful of reviews I've ever written but feel it's my civic duty to sleep-deprived, frazzled moms and dads everywhere to do my part to talk you into buying this magical baby-taming, life-saving, game changer of a baby carrier.

    I have tried just about every carrier out there and have found that the Mia Mily Hipster 3D is by far the most comfortable carrier I have ever used! I have traveled through cities, airports, trains, working around my house, and many hiking trails with this carrier. I can wear it all day and not be in pain at the end of the day. It has a wide band that goes all the way around the waist making it where it doesn't cut into my sides. So now it not only doesn't hurt my back but it doesn't hurt my sides either. It has storage opportunities; under the seat is a large pocket and on the hip a location to hold your phone.

    This is a truly fantastic carrier. I've gone through 5 different brands and this has been the best for shoulder and back support. This is THE most important feature for me since having my 10lb baby via C section has weakened my lower back and abs. We took this carrier with us on an international trip when my boy was 6 months and 21lbs. We rarely used the umbrella stroller as the carrier was so much easier to maneuver with. My son was comfortable and so were we. The pocket under the seat was especially helpful for my husband who liked to keep his wallet and keys in there.

    I used to love to have a bunch of different carriers around, but now I just want to only ever use this one. It is just so comfortable and has so many little thoughtful touches that make it stand out from the crowd. My first thought when I discovered it was that someone had read my mind and designed a carrier that solved every problem I'd had with other carriers in the past. My kids also love the seat and fight over who gets to ride. I might need another one!

    Most comfortable and versatile carrier

    This carrier has been a part of my baby’s life from infancy to toddlerhood, and it has held up amazingly despite almost daily wear. We use it for everything - cooking around the house, walking outside, and even long trips. My kid absolutely loves it and can sit for hours in it, and now that she’s a toddler we often use the seat alone so she can hop on and off. I also love how ergonomic it is for me - I can carry her for hours!

    I love so many things about this carrier! I love the hip seat that allows babies hips to sit in a safe position. I love that there are multiple carrying positions and that even when carrying it doesn't put weight on your upper back or shoulders. I use this to carry my newborn and also my toddler and i love that I can get so much use out of it. My sons love being in it and it's made traveling so much easier on all of us

    I am so happy that I found a carrier that meets all my needs. I have high expectations for things and I searched high and low for a carrier that allowed me to hold my baby safely yet was practical and functional for me. I am able to carry all my essentials, car keys, cell phone, chapstick, all while carrying my baby conveniently .

    This carrier is by far the most comfortable one I have found, for both me and my toddler. We have been using it since he was born and it is still just as awesome as when he was a newborn. It really has grown with him. I even wore it until I was 7 months pregnant with our 2nd child. Absolutely the best!

    I can't say enough good things about this carrier. I just used it to carry my 1.5 y/o all around Europe and without it there was no way that we would have made it! It's easy to use, the baby loves it, and it's very secure. Best carrier on the market IMO!

    My squirmy eight month old loves hanging out in this carrier. Its just about the only way I can get anything done is when he's strapped to my chest in the carrier. Love the netting feature especially in the desert. Definitely recommend

    I've tried many carriers (ergo, lille, and tula) and only this carrier has been able to alleviate my chronic back pain! My baby also loves the innovative hip seat, she is so comfortable and being able to face out safely is a big plus!
