If you were around Creative Madness Mama in March, you may have experienced some of my fabulous reviews and adventures with babywearing. Thanks to Mom Central and Infantino I was able to experience an Infantino EcoSash. I have seen these in BRU and they have some great patterns and designs.
ECOSASH – Wrap & Tie Carrier
The EcoSash is designed with style and comfort in mind. It has a natural, form-fitting design that adjusts as baby grows, plus three carrying positions and a whole bundle of features, accessories and surprises. You’ll be ready to roll with a detachable hood, reversible fabric prints, extra padding, and a mesh washing machine bag.
Much in the same way that I loved the Big Sister Designs Mei Tai and the TogetherBe Mei Tai, the Infantino EcoSash is similar, but different. It also has features that are like a soft structured carrier like Belle Baby Carrier or even the ERGObaby Carrier. While not as structured as the ERGO and not as simplistic as the Belle Baby, it seems that the EcoSash is a good in the middle design. It would be a perfect carrier for a family that wants one carrier for multiple things.
A couple things we love:
The color coded instruction tabs on the carrier. As you are just getting use to the carrier, not having to go back time and again to the instruction manual, but having tips to help you along the way is great. (Of course, you should read the instructions first!)
The reversible panel. I love the panel that is there, but being able to reverse it to black if needed is really great and makes it a universal outfit match.
Easy to adjust and comfortable.
The loops! Oh the loops are fabulous. Definitely something that makes the EcoSash stand out above other carriers. No slippage and just that slight bit more comfort and safety.
The only qualms…
AppleBlossom is a really small girl, she’s just too short to really sit in in comfortably even with the waist band folded and the top snapped down. She’s just sort of enveloped in it. She is completely safe, but it wouldn’t be my go-to carrier for her current size.
