You're going to get lots of different reviews for any carrier you mention - but here's mine! I had a babyhawk but I sold it because once my son was around 20lbs (6 months) it just hurt my neck and upper back. I couldn't get it comfy no matter what I did. I ended up using a SSC with him - and now with my daughter I use woven wraps. Lots of it is personal preference and sometimes a carrier just doesn't work right with your body no matter what you do. I loved my babyhawk when my son was smaller though - I used it every day from 3-6 months (used a moby until 3 months) but after that it just wasn't good for me. I can still use my SSC with him though (and a woven if he will let me) and it's comfy - and he's 2.5 years old.
Lots of ladies love theirs though - it just didn't work for us long term. Is there any way you can test one out and see if it will work for you? That's the best thing to do!
I bought a babyhawk, and I do like it but get more use out of my woven wraps. I think the babyhawk is easy to use from the beginning, whereas wraps take a bit of work to get the hang of. But I still like my babyhawk and use it regularly.
As Sun said, if there is a way you can try before you buy then I'd do that caus what suits one person doesn't suit another.
I didn't care for mine. I prefer a wider strap, so I have a couple different brands with those, one is a wrapstar wrap conversion MT that are sewn overseas somewhere. These can cost quite a bit more. I have talked to people who love them & this is their only carrier, too! I would give it a 6/10.
I really like ours. I've had it since my first LO was 6 weeks old. I used it a lot up until she was really into scratching my face and pulling my hair at around 18 months. I think she would have been around 25lbs then and she was still on my front (she preferred it, as did I) and it was still comfortable. Now, I have that and a Rose & Rebellion. I still prefer the BH for comfort but for the way I use carriers at the moment I tend to use the R&R and the BH is a bit sad sitting all neglected Now with 2 kids I always tend to take the buggy anyway (for luggage space!) so I only really wear my youngest if the older one wants to go in the buggy which is rare, or if LO wants feeding on the go. Over winter the R&R has been easier as it doesn't touch the floor (puddles) as I put it on, which the BH does unless you're very careful. Anyway, I do love the BH and writing this has inspired me to get it out again!
Thanks ladies, i don't really have an opportunity to try one before i buy, i have heard a lot about woven wraps so i may try them out, i got given a baby bjorn and used it once but i did not like that so that went on ebay, as did the moby, my kari me is ok but to to stretchy now she is bigger and it has done so many children! x x x
