Review: Evenflo Snugli Front and Back Carrier
Written on November 22, 2005 by Kevin.
I had looked at baby carriers prior to Rylan being born and my initial thought was that they were quite expensive. Well atleast expensive for the nice ones. Its not uncommon to see people throughout the internet promoting the Baby Bjorn carrier but that was too rich for my blood. One night though my wife and I were at Babies R Us and I noticed on their clearance table a Evenflo Snugli Front and Back Carrier, for cheap. Normally the price of this item would have been $29.99 but I got it for $12.90, well within my budget.
My initial question for the customer service at the store was asking them why it was on clearance. My main concern was for the safety of Rylan sitting in it. They assured me that items on the clearance section where not recalls or defective, but simply returns or merchandise no longer being sold. To make sure, I did do a recall check on this item and did find a recall but for a different model number.
As for the product itself, its great. It allows me to keep Rylan close to me when he is having one of those days where he is either crying or in our arms. I have read many reviews saying that putting this carrier on and putting in a baby is difficult. I would agree with that to some extent but I have successfully and safely been able to put Rylan in it by myself with minimal issues. This carrier allows for a lot of expansion as it works with newborns that can and cannot hold their heads up and later on will allow me to put him on my back as well. Overall, for the price, I would certainly say it was a great deal and has already come in handy on a couple of situations. Now that the weather is nicer here in Arizona, it will work great for walks and maybe short trips where a stroller is a bit much.
