I had always wished I had had a baby carrier when Thaddeus was a baby, but they were all way too expensive or hard to find at the time. Today, there are many to choose from and many different styles of them. Infantino just came out with a new carrier, the Sync Comfort Wrap Carrier.

My Take On It
When I first received the Sync comfort Wrap Carrier I was excited! I thought it was such a cute carrier and would be great for carrying Xavier around since he’s still pretty small.
I still think the carrier is as cute as could be, but I do not like it one bit.
The instructions are very easy to read, however the carrier is not as easy to assemble as the instructions make it seem to be. Especially not when you have an active baby. The baby in the instructional video doesn’t seem to be very active, which could be why they are able to put the carrier on so easily with no help. It doesn’t matter how many times I watch the above video for the proper way of putting the carrier on or with having help from my husband, we were never able to get the carrier to look like it does on the packaging or in the video. Nor do I feel that it holds Xavier as well as it should.
I have removed 2 images from my original post because Xavier was too big to be in the carrier in the manner in which I was wearing it.
As you can see, Xavier doesn’t look comfortable and I still have to give him a lot of support while he’s in there. I do not feel that I should have to still support a baby when they are in carrier and they should always look comfortable. I did like the fact that Xavier was able to look up at me while in the carrier, but I still do not feel comfortable wearing this type of carrier.
I have another carrier that I previously reviewed from another company that is much easier to use and doesn’t take a bunch of steps or the help of another person to get it on me and get Xavier in it. I love the look of the Infantino carrier; it’s just not that easy to use and it takes too long to get it wrapped around you and the baby correctly so it is not convenient to me.
The Sync Comfort Wrap Carrier doesn’t seem to be very comfortable either, at least for me.
