    My new 8 arrived in the mail today and I thought I’d leave a little review for those considering it! I am a huge review reader and it was against my nature to make such a big purchase without reading a million reviews first. But, I’m SO glad I did! I am really loving this carrier.

    Some background info – I have tried a Tula (hated that the straps didn’t cross) , lillebaby all seasons (way too big), soleil (liked the features but hated the fit of the waistband) and Gemini cool (my go to, but the mesh was kind of rough on my baby’s legs). I’m 5’0” and 100lbs. My girl is five months old and right around 15lbs. She is about 26in tall.

    So, my first impression was that this carrier is pretty similar to a Gemini. The seat base is a bit wider, and the panel is a little taller, but the fit is similar. My baby jusssst fit without the infant insert, but we may use it for a few more weeks to be on the safe side.

    What I love about this carrier is the additional padding. The leg openings feel really nice, and my favorite addition is some padding behind the buckles that clip under your arms. That’s awesome, because I accidentally clipped my babies arm skin once with the Gemini, and she got uncomfortable if she managed to work a hand under there. The straps were very comfortable. I love the lumbar support! The waist band just fits me on the smallest setting with the lumbar support, so somebody super tiny might have to take it off to get a tighter fit.

    I love the zip down panel feature. I took baby girl for a walk today and it was in the 70s and very sunny, and she didn’t sweat at all. The carrier felt like it would be pretty warm with the panel zipped up, which will be nice for when we visit family in Michigan. The hood worked pretty well to keep the sun off her head.

    Another thing I LOVE is the size and accessibility of the pocket. You access it from the side now instead of the top. I don’t know about everyone else, but I found it almost impossible to get into the pocket on the Gemini because the baby’s butt obstructed it. No problem with that anymore! It’s also pretty big, enough so to fit my iPhone 6 Plus and some keys. It zips, which feels more secure to me than Velcro. Also, for extra storage, the soleil pouch will fit on the buttons meant to hold the headrest down, with a little bit of stretching.

    Cons – the hood could be a little bigger, it took a little finagling to get it to completely cover the baby’s head. I also don’t love that the headrest needs to be up to use the hood; not a huge deal, but it seemed like it obstructed my girl’s vision a little and she likes to see out when the hood is up. The straps were also pretty hard to pull and adjust, but I think they will probably loosen up with time. Also, this should be obvious from the pics, but – it’s not really a “cute” carrier. The look is pretty utilitarian, haha. I’d rather be comfortable than have a cute print though, so it works for me! I’m going to dress it up with some cute suck pads.

    Overall, I am so happy I bought the 8. Definitely my goldilocks carrier, it does everything I need it to!

    As an educator, I find the 8 to be a refreshing meld of ideas, broadening the appeal to a wider audience.
    At first glance, I thought that the 8 was simply a more complex Gemini. Upon closer examination with after using this carrier with children of varying sizes in a variety of carrying positions, I’ve come to realize that it really is something new and different.
    The 8 has some things that I already love – similar waistband shape to the Gemini, the ability to cross straps, support for forward facing with the narrowing base and folding headrest, and similarly padded shoulder straps. I feel the 8 is just as comfortable as my Gemini, but it’s different – I like both!
    The 8 infant insert is the same insert Boba has been using for years. This was my first exposure to it and at first I was a bit skeptical. I was concerned that this insert didn’t have a padded back to provide lateral support. But the 8’s panel is very moldable; the panel molds to the natural curve of the newborn spine rather than using extra padding. The insert’s added height bring’s baby’s ears out above the panel, making it easier to monitor the newborn airway.
    The Beco 8’s panel versatility definitely widens its audience. While I live in a colder climate, we do get a few months where babywearing can be hard! Some newborns sweat a lot. The mesh material is not harsh or uncomfortable to the touch, while allowing great breathability. I like that I don’t have to choose between a solid panel and a mesh panel – that I have both available to me in the same carrier.
    The addition of the lumbar support has changed how I feel about front carries, especially with bigger children. It off-sets the weight nicely and makes front carrying much more comfortable. I also love that the waist pocket both zippers, making it secure, and opens to the side rather than the top, to make it easier to access with a baby bum seated above it. I was able to slide a cell phone in and out of it easily.
    Having worked with the Becommunity for a few years, I’ve seen many wearers lose or damage half of their chest clip. I’ve always appreciated that the Beco chest clip is completely height adjustable, allowing you to place it wherever you need it, but the removability did increase the chances of losing a piece. Replacing the plastic and webbing with a slider is really nice. I can still move it around wherever I need to, but I don’t have to worry about losing anything anymore. In fact, aside from the infant insert and lumbar support, everything about this carrier – hood, chest clips, pockets – are all housed in the carrier itself. The hood has a little zippered pocket in the headrest, which provides some extra neck support when not in use. There aren’t extra pieces to misplace.
    The last few things that really stood out to me about his carrier were the waistband sizing and the ability to forward face while still having a higher weight limit. Often petite wearers struggle to find a SSC that will cinch small enough for their waist – and waistbands must be snug in order to prevent them from sagging under the bum and digging into the wearer on the other side. The 8 waistband adjusts all the way from 24”-59,” covering a wider range of wearers than many other SSCs. The 8 also allows forward facing while having a weight limit of 45 pounds, while most top out at 35.
    I feel the 8 brings a nice fusion of ideas to some classic Beco things that I just love. I can still cross my straps. It still feels comfortable in all the same spots. But the new additions are very cool. I can’t wait to see it come in some different colors and prints!

    We have tried and used many carriers and it always remains that Beco is our favorite buckle carrier. They just fit so well on both my tall husband and my plus size frame. They are also comfortable for baby (from tiny to young toddlerhood in our experience).

    When we tried the Beco 8 we were blown away with the options it has, but at the same time remaining simple to use. If it’s not simple, it’s not my jam. It is currently our favorite of all carriers, even among the Becos. I only recommend things I truly love and I am in LOVE with this carrier. It’s the only one we need.

    The beco 8 is my first ever beco. I love all the features of it. We used it for the first time this weekend at the aquarium and it was nice to use a hip carry (which I’d never done) and forward facing out with a toddler! My daughter loves to see the world around her so I’m happy we can forward face out still. Only downside was that the button on the side buckle is a little hard to press down but I think it’s because it’s new and I’m not used to it! Otherwise it’s really great. The cool mesh was perfect for in a crowd of people and neither of us were too hot. Really love this carrier! Thanks beco for picking me as a winner in the giveaway!
