The Beco Gemini is a great all-purpose soft structured carrier for babies from newborn to about 18 months. It allows you to wear your baby from birth through toddlerhood in a single carrier.
The Gemini is sleek, stylish and incredibly comfortable. A huge perk to the Beco Gemini is its ability to safely and comfortable hold your baby in a forward-facing position. Most forward-facing baby carriers don't support a baby's thighs, which puts all your baby's weight on the base of it's spine, compressing vertebrae with each step and bounce. Sleeping babies will definitely benefit from the high headrest in the Beco Gemini which comfortably cradles your baby's head eliminating neck discomfort. The Beco Gemini is all about flexibility and simplicity. There are no detachable accessories, everything you need is built into the carrier. The Gemini converts from one form to another by folding and securing various parts of the carrier with snaps.
The Beco Gemini is shorter and narrower in the body than the other carriers, and has no sleeping hood (just a headrest), so it's not ideal for use with toddlers, but it is a very good, comfortable, intuitive and easy-to-use carrier for newborns and younger babies.
