What beautiful carriers. You have really opened up my eyes to so many wonderful topics and concepts. I had NO idea that I had any other option besides the Baby Bjorn, which is not working for us. The Ellaroo carriers are gorgeous and SO stylish. I love the many options that they offer, both in type of carrier and designs. I am so excited about babywearing now. Thank you SO MUCH.
