Finally found a carrier Carter likes!

So I've been avoiding purchasing an Ergo or any other fancy high price carrier mainly because of the price and also because Carter is not really into being carried any other way but in our arms. Which used to be cool, but he's freakin heavy now! So I broke down and bought a carrier. The gal at HappyBottomus in KC probably thought I was crazy but she was still very helpful. If anyone is in the Overland Park area I suggest you check them out. I, eventually after trying on a few with Carter (who protested the entire time)  chose the Beco Butterfly 2. It's really comfortable and Carter actually like it! Here's the color I chose :
And here's a few specs from their website:


  • newborn to toddler (7-45 lbs/3.5 - 20 kg)
  • front and back carry
  • easy On and OFF features
  • high quality tested materials
  • machine washable
  • DVD instructions included
  • made in USA and China


  • body 13" wide x 16" tall
  • shoulder straps 23" (can be adjusted up to 22" LONGER for a total of 45")
  • waist belt 28"(size 0) can be adjusted up to 57"
  • weight capacity of the carrier: 7-45 lbs
  • weight of the carrier: 1.8 lbs

They have a bunch of cute colors to choose from and it looks like they have some good deals on their website right now. You should check them out!

  1. Awesome! Have you tried back carrying? Nora thinks it's the Bee's Knees! Kind of like a less exhaustive piggy back ride!

  2. I've got an Ergo and I'm still not in love with it. Which is disappointing. I'm using it for Elliott now, I haven't tried putting Delaney in it in awhile.

    I love that Beco!
