I will say that I frequently carried Thing 1 in our Complete Organic with no issues, but putting him in the Carry On made a world of difference. The body of the carrier has a wider footprint with padding on the legs, and the shoulder straps and waist belt are also wider, all of which help distribute the weight better. It truly makes for a more comfortable experience for both mom and little one.
A few other convenient features are:
- Lumbar support: The Carry on comes with the same amazing lumbar support as the other LÍLLÉbaby carriers
- Three position (Front, Back, Hip) ergonomic carrying for children up to 60 lbs
- Three-Way Straps, allowing for maximum adjustability (fantastic when you have parents with two very different frames!)
- Pockets: There is a large zippered storage pocket, as well as an easy to reach pocket for storing the hood and other essentials.
Of course, the Carry On works wonderfully for Thing 2 as well and, since I have it, I use it when I am out and about with only her. Toothless the Night Fury says it is just a tad too roomy for a newborn...(Yes, the dragon wearing was heavily influenced by Thing 1.)
