The Beco Gemini is shorter and narrower in the body than the other carriers, and has no sleeping hood (just a headrest), so it's not ideal for use with toddlers, but it is a very good, comfortable, intuitive and easy-to-use carrier for newborns and younger babies.

We can over 6+ hours in this. I ditched the umbrella stroller and always use this! Once fit correctly, it feels like a backpack. We bought it for the forward facing and BF option but I love the backpack carry and ND bubs loves to snuggle close into my chest on colder days. It's way more convenient then lugging the stroller down the stairs with a baby and dog in tow then walking with the dog beside the stroller. We're not limited anymore to where we can go. I do wish that the head support went lower when placed down - it lines up to bubs mouth which can be annoying when he's front facing. My son is 22lbs, over 2 ft, 9 months and feels like a feather plus chores can get done now without a crying fit. Also! It does have a phone/cards pocket or doggy bag holder as we use it. Aha.

I absolutely love this carrier! It's extremely lightweight, comfortable, and secure. I will say that although it is very safe for a newborn, it is too tall for my daughter even at 5 weeks (9+ lbs and 22" long), so I have to sit her on a rolled up receiving blanket even with the top snapped down or her head is several inches below the top. That would be the case for pretty well any SSC though, and the fact that she sits safely without an infant insert is huge for her comfort in the summer heat. Gorgeous print, too!
