LÍLLÉbaby 6-in-1 carriers

Before I get started with how they are different I think it’s important to go through what they have in common. LÍLLÉbaby carriers are ergonomically designed to be comfortable for both parent and baby. They all share the following features:

  • Newborn to toddler (3.2 to 20.5kgs)
  • padded shoulder straps and wide supportive waistband 
  • Structured lumbar support that is easily positioned to your body
  • Easy to use on your own (no assistance needed!)
  • Two-way adjustable straps for secure fit.
  • Cargo pockets for all your extra items
  • Hood for weather protection and privacy.
  • Adjustable to fit most bodies (and optional waistband extender sold separately)

    LÍLLÉbaby carriers offer 6-in-1 carry positions for versatility including parent facing, forward facing, hip and back carry to grow and adapt your carrier as you and your baby's needs change. As well as two carry positions for newborns (standard legs out position and optional legs in "fetal position" with the newborn pillow sold separate.

    The LÍLLÉbaby Elevate is the newest addition to the LÍLLÉbaby carrier range with so many thoughtful updates. With the linen outer shell to be cool and comfortable all year round, super soft hypoallergenic cotton lining and stylish leatherette details the LÍLLÉbaby Elevate is the more premium option in the LÍLLÉbaby carrier range. 

    Additional features have been updated for ease of use including:

    • Easier to adjust panel width - just zip down, tuck in and go. 
    • Magnetic closure on the cross shoulder support.
    • 3-way adjustable head support for a more customisable fit
    • Clever bottle holder on the lumbar support.

    LÍLLÉbaby COMPLETE Carrier Range

    The LÍLLÉbaby COMPLETE carriers come in a range of different fabrics and styles to choose from, all offering slightly different features, but also essentially the same carrier. The key differences comparing the COMPLETE to the ELEVATE carriers are:

    • Multi-step process to adjust panel width.
    • Regular buckle closure on the cross shoulder support.
    • 2-way adjustable head support.
    • No bottle on the lumbar support. 

    However the LÍLLÉbaby COMPLETE carriers can offer incredible value for money with more options and price points to choose from.

    Which LÍLLÉbaby carrier is right for you?

    When choosing the best LÍLLÉbaby  carrier for your family this will come down to which features are most important to you. If you’re looking for the most affordable all in one baby carrier that will take your baby from newborn to toddler, with all carry positions, and is comfortable and easy to use then the LÍLLÉbaby Complete Original might be the best LÍLLÉbaby carrier for you. 

    If you are more active, live in a warmer climate or expecting a summer baby you will want to look at the COMPLETE Airflow and ELEVATE carriers for their lightweight and breathable fabrics. 

    Or if you prefer a more premium carrier you’d be choosing between the LÍLLÉbaby COMPLETE All Seasons with the versatile zip down panel to adjust easily for warmer and cooler days or the LÍLLÉbaby ELEVATE with the luxury feel of linen and super soft cotton to keep baby cozy and comfortable all year round.
