My name is Isabel and I have been proud to wear my daughter Rosie since she was 4 days old. She is 13 months old and weighed around 8.5kg when I was lucky enough to review this awesome carrier. We are used to using a variety of styles of carrier; woven wrap, Mei Tai, Wrap tai and SSC’s and were excited to find that the Neobulle Evolu’bulle takes the positives of all these carriers and condenses them into one easily adaptable and comfortable carrier.
The best thing by far is the adjustability. It can be tightened or pulled in at every side using drawstrings and the base has three widths changeable using snap buttons, meaning it can be used for any sized bub and can be adjusted to exactly fit your own baby which I found great as Rosie is quite little but still tall. Further, although it unfortunately lacks a hood, it instead has a panel that can be fully zipped to cover up to bub’s head, supporting the neck, or rolled down to allow an arms out carry. I had never attempted an arms out carry before but felt more confident doing so in the Evolu’bulle because I could adjust the rest of the carrier to make a tight fit (I was afraid she would fall out in other carriers) The manual suggests you can leave the panel half zipped to allow for taller bubs but I found it wouldn’t hold.
I also found the carrier very comfortable. The straps are padded and lead into long wrap straps which you can spread to support your chest and bub’s bottom when doing a back carry, which I had not done before I read the instructions in the manual. The material is also very soft and breathable. We wore this wrap walking to and from playgroup and at Rosie’s birthday party all during the heat of February and found the material breathed and remained quite soft. I felt as comfortable using this as I would using a woven wrap. My husband did find that the straps came up a little short on him, but still commented that Rosie felt more secure than using our other wraps. More so, he was able to use it unsupervised which is a testament to its usability.
