PSMM Reviews
• BabyHawk (oh snap) fits all sizes adult comfortably, wide seat base good for toddlers and large babies. Only com is lack of a sleeping hood.
• BabyHawk Mei Tai is AMAZING! I’m a size 30, and it fits like a dream! Totally worth the price, and super easy to use! I like it because there’s not a lot of fabric to drag around, and it’s really comfortable!
• I loved my BabyHawk because I choose the actual fabrics, it is an extremely versatile carrier and it has a higher weight range for the child. I used mine until mini me was 4, made our trip to Disney nice, we rolled up my hawk and stuck it in the backpack, rented a Disney stroller then used the babyhawk to get back to the resort on the Disney bus at the end of the day.

• Baby K’tan is awesome! Im size 24 fits great! Daughter loves it very comfortable not back breaking like some
• Doesn’t cut in or squeeze me where I don’t want it too. The cotton is a wonderful breathable material for longer wears, and Daddy can use the same size. Plus – it’s only an XL.
• I really love my baby k’tan. It’s soft and flexible, very easy to put on and get baby into and easy to adjust with baby in it if you need to. I am carrying my one month old regularly but I have put my 18 lb 7 month old nephew in it as well as my 40 lb 4 year old daughter. It’s worked for everyone!

• Boba Organic is comfortable. It has long straps to acommodate larger body sizes without extenders. It’s nice to be able to front or back carry comfortably.
• I loved our Boba, mostly because it was the only one I could find that both fit AND was slightly stretchy. I loved the t-shirt like material and that it fit dad, too. I’m 5’9″ and 450lbs, daddy is 6’4″ and 450lbs, and it was plenty big and comfy.

The Xtra Carrier is the Flex Fit, which means that it fits a wide range of body sizes and is especially designed for larger frames. The Flex Fit has straight shoulder straps which makes it easier to use in the hip carry position. The Performance Carrier is the Active fit with a slightly larger waist belt than the Original and Organic and curved shoulder straps, which makes it especially comfortable for long adventures in the back carry position. Both Carriers have waist belts that extend to 55” but the Xtra has an extra 3” of padding, making it more comfortable for larger frames.

• Ergo is east to use and the weight limits are high.
• I love the Ergo because my baby calms instantly when I wear him in it and I love that I can wear it front or back depending on the need. It’s so comfy, too, and doesn’t squish my large breasts!
• Ergo (x-tra) is perfect for plus sized mamas and actually feels stable and supportive. It’s just a few clicks before you’re ready to go and is very user friendly.

As a larger mom, it was such a relief to not only feel like a carrier would fit but that I would feel comfortable wearing it for an extended period of time. The craftsmanship is outstanding and meets all safety regulations. It was super helpful that the carrier came with easy to follow instructions. Valerie is happy to speak with mamas to help them find the best carrier and fit! She helped me to select the right carrier for my body type and answered any questions I had right away.

• 
Kindercarry – bar none for the plus size mama… I am comfortable, baby is comfortable, and am now happily using the toddeler plus.
• I’m obsessed with KinderCarry cause I could carry my 5 year old if need be. I’m still carrying my 3 year old in it and can for another 10lbs! If you can carry a big kid in a carrier and feel like you’re carrying a baby, THAT is a good carrier.
• Our Kinderpack is awesome! I love the fact that it comes in plus size option and is so customizable. I got a toddler/plus to carry my tall toddler and she is really secure in it and I am quite comfortable wearing her. The cute prints are a great added bonus.

PSMM Reviews
• Love my Mei Tei. But as a plus sized mommy with large breasts, I have a tough time double wrapping the straps like they were designed to.
• I loved my Mei Tai for my babies. It was a great wrap beauce Im a big girl and hubby is not so big but it is easy for both of us to use and very secure for baby to be in.
• Mei Tei is simple and easy to use and adjust. Not very comfortable for heavier babies. Easy to nurse in. Not having padded straps makes for long wearing uncomfortable

PSMM Reviews
• We loved the Moby when our son was younger! It had a nice stretch for maximum comfort, but was also secure. Great alternative to carrying a bucket seat everywhere!
• Moby Wrap takes the pressure off and evenly distributes baby’s weight on your body. It has many positions.
• I loved my Moby Wrap when my son was a sleepy newborn. I was worried that it wouldn’t fit at first(I am a size ~26), but it fit with some extra fabric even! It’s a little hard to get used to putting on but keeps baby cozy against you. I’ve had plenty of people compliment me while wearing it in a grocery store – “how handy”, “baby looks comfy”, those kinds of things. However, as he’s gotten older and more curious he isn’t too keen on being so “restrained”.

• Love, love, love my Oscha wrap! 
• Oscha starry night Shona is soft, supportive and gorgeous. I will never use anything but hemp now.
• I really like Oscha wraps. I own several and have owned ir tried many. Their designs tend to be quite artistic, and their weaves are usually dense, making a solid, supportive wrap even with just cotton. Right now I have a 100% linen, a couple of all-cottens, a silk blend, a silk-wool blend and a hemp blend. All very solid with my heavy toddler, and all beautiful to wear.

• Wrapsody is good for all sizes, has beautiful colors, and can carry two kiddos at once.
• Wrapsody water wrap size long is great for plus size moms. It breathes better than moby, has spf built in, goes in the water oh so well and dries fast, washes well, and is fancy to wear compared to moby.
• I’m a big fan of the Wrapsody Breeze. It’s the carrier that gave me the wrapping love. I loved the stretch and found the fabric much easier to drape and wrap than some similar stretchy wraps I had tried in the past. Big bonus was that it was also very lightweight. It’s my favorite carrier for a newborn. I recommend the Wrapsody Breeze to all new moms.
