Lillebaby CarryOn Review
As babies grow, and still enjoy being carried, their baby carrier may no longer fit properly. Luckily, Lillebaby has a great like of CarryOn toddler carriers in many different fabrics, patterns and even limited runs. Take a look at our CarryOn sample below.
When my 2 year old was diagnosed with a bone tumor, child-wearing became a real need. I wear my infant to our toddler’s appointments and tests so I can hold and nurse him, and I wear my toddler to help him receive sensory information that he didn’t get when he was in a wheelchair. There are many benefits to wearing a disabled child. He walks now, still really enjoys babywearing and can be seen here in his footie jammies. I have my two youngest babies photographed here. My baby, who is 14 months and 33 lbs and my now almost 3-year old who is 35 lbs in this lovely Lillebaby Toddler Carrier. Here come the photos.

In between the beautiful sunny Spring day in the photos above at our local farm preserve, we had the most movie-like snowfall I’ve ever experienced. It fell gently overnight, then opened up with sunshine and 40 degrees in the morning. I knew it would soon melt so we ran outside for some photos! The snow was falling softly from the trees, the air was still and the sunshine was spectacular!
Overall Impression of Lillebaby CarryOn
The Lillebaby Toddler Carrier is very supportive and both of my children feel weightless. The fabric has bounce and breathability to it. When I exaggerate my steps, I actually bounce my baby in the carrier and my almost 3 year old was laughing so loudly the neighbor heard him and had to call us over and see what we were doing! I really like the canvas and mesh combination. I like to wear a carrier on walks for exercise and I’m often pushing a stroller, this allows both of us to stay as cool as possible and even feel a bit of a breeze. I am 5’4.5″ (hey, that extra half an inch counts!) and 134 lbs in these photos. I have a short torso, and this fits lovely in the smallest settings but is tightened all the way. I’m not sure if someone with a smaller frame would get a good fit since the carrier doesn’t go any smaller. I did notice that the canvas waistband folded down some under my son’s bottoms at first. This was resolved by tightening it more. Aside from that minor adjustment, it has performed really well and I would recommend this carrier to friends, family and anyone else looking for a great toddler SSC.
Fit: As you can see, my boys have room to grow. One reason I knew it was time to switch to a toddler carrier was the fear that my son would tip out in a back carry. They both love to lean back and our Ergo carrier, which has served us so well, barely comes up under my infant’s armpits or out towards his knees anymore. My husband who is 6’2″ fits even better in this carrier then I do. He even wore our 59 lb 4+ foot tall toddler around Mommycon comfortably in this! I have this tightened as small as it will go, and would be concerned about it fitting someone with a smaller frame well. In that case, I would recommend going with the regular Lillebaby line of carriers. You can see how well their new Essentials carrier fits my toddler in my Lillebaby Essentials Review.
