mothercare three position baby carrier is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great carrier I bought this 10 months ago and have been using since.I found it really comfortable for baby and me.Easy to wear .We can fix the carrier to our body first and then we can hold the baby with one hand and do the adjustment with other hand .I feel it very safe as I know it will not fallen off while strapping the baby into it.My little one is 11 months now and we still love the product. She enjoys having a nap in it while I do the shopping.It was really helpful while you travel on flights also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort Bought this a month ago its brilliant comfortable for baby and good for mum to be hands free and when out in the car popping in to shops without having to put the whole pram up

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow I have my hands back! So easy to use and comfortable for me and baby. Easily adjusted. Got both hands free again. Lovely colour. Very reasonably priced. Fits my newborn and supports his head well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for smaller mum and baby A great carrier for a petit mum as the shoulder straps are adjustable meaning it can fit any length torso and padded straps are really comfortable. It also offers really good support for a petit baby as the carrier is quite compact (though is adjustable if required). As soon as I put baby in it she did nothing but smile and appears very comfortable when we are out and about in it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed Recently purchased this item (mainly for walking the dog or going to the shops so I don't need to take the pram) and I'm extremely happy with it. My 6 week old fits perfectly with plenty of padding for support. It is comfortable to wear and was easy to adjust to my size. Very good value for money and definitely one of the best items I have bought so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Carrier Last year I brought the 2 way carrier it was meant to fit a baby weighing 15kg and up to a year old. My baby wasn't even 3 months at the time and she couldn't even fit in it because the leg part was too small. Since buying this one we've found it easier to get her in it as it is adjustable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Back straps not great Really comfy to wear but you need someone to do the straps at the back for you. Or you have to do them up then wriggle in, getting out nearly impossible. Also my 9 week old already too big for newborn head bit.

Questions & Answers

How is this supposed to work forward facing? The carrier is too high and covers my babies face. She’s not a small baby either. There is no fold option 

Asked by: Laurenj1705
Hello, Thank you for your query. The carrier can be used forward facing from approx 3 months old, please ensure that you remove the head support when using forward facing so it does not cover the baby's face. If the child's face is still covered with the head support removed then unfortunately they are still too small to be forward facing and we would advise waiting until your child is larger. I hope this helps.
