Review: LÍLLÉbaby® Complete ALL SEASONS Baby Carrier (Part 2)

Vern @ 9 mo - 30 April 2016

This is Part 2, a continuation of the review of the LÍLLÉbaby® Complete All Seasons Baby Carrier that I did last year. You can read all about Part 1 of the review here in which I talked about my first impressions of the carrier.

Now that I'd finally had a chance to babywear baby Vern using this, I'll share with you the babywearing experience of this LÍLLÉbaby® carrier.


This is basically how it looks like wearing this on me. 
I prefer to use Front-Toddler style, where I'm wearing him at the front of my body with him facing me. 
These are the side views, the front and the back views.


When baby Vern was an infant, I preferred to use the wrap or sling to babywear him. But this LÍLLÉbaby®carrier can also be used to babywear an infant without the use of an infant insert. All you need to do is to use the wide seat setting and the baby will be positioned in the natural newborn frog-legged position.

As you can see, baby Vern is being seated very ergonomically and comfortably in the carrier, with the M-shaped bottom and legs. 
This seating position is also achieved using the wide seat setting, which ensures a natural seating position as baby Vern can sit comfortably with his legs around my waist. 

I like how natural it is for baby Vern's body to curve into mine as I babywear him in the Front-Toddler position. This shows how ergonomic the carrier is and how both of us are so comfortable in it.  

Wide Padded Shoulder Straps & Waist Belt
The first thing I noticed when I tried it on is how well padded and wide the shoulder straps are, giving me comfort and it did not dig into my shoulders. 
The waist belt is also wide and comfortable enough, distributing my baby's heavy weight properly all around the waist.
As an experienced baby carrier user, I know how important this is. 

Lumbar Support

The highlight and my favourite feature of this carrier is the Lumbar Support. 
This piece of cloth on the baby carrier which is the lumbar support, does actually increases comfort for me.
I felt it helps to provide support for my back and thus prevents lower back strain.

It also helps to maintain a healthy posture and alignment as I felt that this lumbar support ensures that I always wear my carrier at the center position and not slide to the side. 
When combined with the extra sturdy waist belt it maximizes my comfort. 

Two-Way Strap

LÍLLÉbaby® carrier has a two-way strap feature which I find it so very helpful. 
The carrier straps adjust in 2 ways - you can either pull forward or backwards to tighten it. This two-way, dual adjustable belt makes it easy to adjust the carrier to my most comfort level in no time at all. I don't have to reach my hand to pull a strap backward. I could just simply pull forward or backwards as long as it reaches my desired length for my maximum comfortability! 

This dual adjustment buckles also simplify breastfeeding and adjusting straps on the go. This two-way strap ensures that I could breastfeed discreetly and no one would ever know because I would just pull the straps easily to adjust positions. 

Extra Tall, Extendable Torso

Another one of my favourite features of the LÍLLÉbaby® carrier is that it has an extra tall and extendable torso. This feature provides neck and back support for the baby's head.
I don't think I can say that baby Vern is tall, but then I can safely say that he is definitely a big baby. 

So whenever he falls asleep in the carrier, I like to unbutton and extend out the extendable part for a higher support for him. 
This is how it looks like with the extendable part up.
You see how the silver part of the carrier is being extended up to baby Vern's ear and cover half of his head.
You can definitely see how it helps to support his neck and back, and is definitely helpful when he is asleep. 

Vern sleeps ever so peacefully in it. ;) 

Temperature Control Planel (ONLY FOR ALL SEASONS carriers) 

And now for the uniqueness of this All Season's model, is the Temperature Control Panel.
This panel has 2 zippers on either side of the midline.  This panel can be zipped up for warmth or down for a much cooler, breathable babywearing session.

On the left is when the panel is zipped up, with the extra cotton fabric. 
And on the right is how it looks like with the panel being zipped down, where the silver mesh material is exposed. 


In a cool and air-conditioned mall, I usually zipped it up.

But lately the weather in Penang was crazily hot with the Equinox phenomena hitting us, so even in the mall we felt not that cool and sometimes both Vern and I could even be sweating.
So this temperature control panel really comes in useful as I can kinda adjust it according to the temperature. So I've been using it zipped down most of the time. 
It also has a tiny strap below it for you to roll up the cotton panel to be tucked in below. I like these little details that LÍLLÉbaby® put into the carrier. 


As for the pocket size-wise, it is a little tight. It can fit my iPhone6 but not anything else. I would prefer a bigger pocket, perhaps pockets with a wider base so that at least I can fit in my car keys and a little cash perhaps.

All in all, both baby Vern and I are very happy with 
LÍLLÉbaby® Complete All Seasons Baby Carrier. Albeit a little bulky, but it comes with the comfort and the many features mentioned above and more.

Let me end this post with the happy faces Baby Vern in this
