My friend just had a baby not too long ago and received a very luxurious Lascal's M1 baby carrier. Honestly, I had never heard of this carrier, but she registered for it for her baby shower. This is a very pricey baby carrier-over $100 for this thing! She urged me to try it out with her baby in it. So, I strapped it on and found it to be extremely comfortable. It is strappy, as are most baby carriers. There is great back support in this carrier, for both parent and baby! The neck support for baby is incredible-much better than the Snugli baby carrier that I used for my kids. The trim around the arms, legs, and chin is a soft, washable bamboo fabric. I would not have known that but my friend informed me of that. The nice thing about this carrier is that you can face baby inwards when they are little and when they get older and more curious, you can face them out. The fabric is very breathable which helps baby not get so sweaty. This carrier is wonderful in so many ways, although honestly, I would never pay that high price.
