From The Manufacturer

A recent study showed that carrying your baby at least three hours a day reduces crying and fussing 43% during the day, and 51% at night (Pediatrics Magazine). Babies are happier, they have less need to cry, and parents enjoy their babies more as a result. Enhanced Bonding – More constant feeding, touching, eye contact and cuddling releases greater levels of the “Love Hormone” Oxytocin. Elevated levels of Oxytocin mean you literally fall in love with your baby to a greater degree than you otherwise would. The more you wear the more you love. Enhanced Learning – Carried babies have enhanced visual and auditory alertness. Carrying a baby promotes cognitive development and speech development, since babies are exposed to more experiences and conversations. Material – Our baby wraps are made from a proprietary blend of French Terry Cotton and Spandex. It has just enough stretch to keep you and your baby safe, snug, and comfortable.

What reviewers didn't like

On the other hand, a short or very lightweight parent might feel a bit overwhelmed by so much fabric.
Persons of a smaller build might find a lot of extra material to wrap around, making it bulky.
It is better suited for infants and newborns and is not meant for toddlers.
Sags over time
Isn’t the most convenient for older babies who weigh more and are active and curious about the world around them.
Needs readjusting – After a while it can slouch and needs to be re-wrapped.
