Anoona Baby Carrier Review
I recently received the AnoonA soulsling baby carrier and I really like it! The color, fabric and fit are all great. Since having the twins, I’ve been obsessed with carriers and slings. I started out with a double carrier I could put both boys in; but it was only good up until they were about 3 months. I also have a double carrier where one boy can ride on front and the other on back. I use that sometimes; but it’s hard to load them both on my own.
Lately, I find I often prefer to just wear one boy at once and push the other in the stroller. When I’m at the park or playground it’s always great to have the option of a carrier if one boy falls asleep in the stroller, I’ll wear the other and play with Timothy. If one gets super fussy as I’m pushing them home, I can just quickly pop him in the carrier to calm him down.
When I’m at home and need my hands free, I also like to wear a boy while the other one plays in the jumperoo or on the floor. Then I can alternate them too. I even find I can work out with one of the boys on me; or have one in the carrier and also hold the other one at the same time (this works great at bath time). I couldn’t live without a good carrier that’s for sure.
AnoonA is translated as “one without flaws”. It is a complete carrier that’s great for babies up to toddlers. It offers five carry options–newborn, front, front facing out, hip and back carries. It also offers the option of crossed or straight shoulder straps. It has a fully adjustable panel that’s easy to use and the perfect support for my boys as they grow. There’s a pocket on the waistband which I really love to stash a metro card, keys and some cash. It also has a removable hood.
I like that the AnoonA is ethically made by Soul in Bangalore, India. I chose the cotton AnoonA leaf in rich forest green (my favorite color). I find for the most part my William and Robert both like to face me at this point; but I will play around with different ways to carry them soon enough. I will definitely be wearing one boy in my AnoonA when we fly home to Idaho so I can push the other in the car seat snap and go.
What is your favorite carrier? I would love to know in the comments below!
