Really great price for one of these

EasyRider is a great value 2-position carrier - baby starts facing in (approx. 0-4mths) then faces out when they can hold their head up unaided. With lightly padded adjustable shoulder straps for a comfortable fit and detachable dribble bib to protect clothing, EasyRider also opens fully on one side to help ease baby in & out.

Baby can be carried facing in to the parent's chest from birth (min. 8lbs/3.6kg) and then can be positioned facing out to see the world around them from approximately 4 or 5mths when they can hold their head up unaided.

* Suitable from birth for babies 8-20lbs/3.6-9.1kg
* Shell = 100% polyester
* Lining = 65% polyester 35% cotton

Does it look like a natural position for a baby to be in to you? compared to something like this maybe http://www.littlepossums.co.uk/slings/coorie/coorie2.jpg (no thats not me just a type of carrier that is highly recommended) Safety tested or not have you seen people wearing their babies in these things, baby head always unsupported and usually flopped over to the side. My daughter was in slings till she could walk properly and these things are horrible, strain on your lower back, hastle to put baby in and out of ect ect. Go for a sling type if your going to buy this kind of thing much kinder to you and baby.

@EBT .... Wasn't it those baby slings (that you pictured) that were banned last year. Not sure why people get so bloody evangelical about baby stuff, there is more than one way to raise / care for a child.

Anyway ... hot deal, great price.

It might look natural because the baby's practically in a foetal position, but that doesn't mean it's good for its spine! All the advice I've seen is that you avoid that sort of position for extended periods - same issue applies with car seats on very long journeys. Those one-shoulder type slings are also very bad for the wearer because they don't distribute the weight evenly or give you support where you need it. If you've seen people a young baby whose head is unsupported, they've either bought the wrong sling or are using it incorrectly...

We got a Baby Bjorn (Active Synergy?) one on eBay for a reasonable price, and it gives fantastic support all round, including your lower back. Tempted to get this as well though just as a spare.

from the pic I thought it was a giant popcorn holder!

EBT is right, these aren't the best baby carriers- especially for newborns.

Commonly referred to as "crotch danglers". It provides no support for the babies back.

Here's a link with decent advice. Even "advised" carries can be used wrong... but when used properly are fantastic.

Shan't vote either way, as presumably a good deal if you want this type of carrier, but I'll stick with my woven wrap and connecta.

Not sure I want to enter the vipers' pit debate of which is more 'natural', however if you want to reduce the chances of your baby being affected by CDH you should carry your baby in manner adopted by nearly all non-western cultures ;

Having said that, this deal at under a tenner aint bad.

I wasn't aiming at the more "natural" way to carry babies... but this made a lot of sense to me
"Positioning

A good baby carrier should mimic the way we hold our babies in arms and the way our babies position themselves when held. When you hold a newborn, he will automatically draw up his legs into the “froggy” position with his knees apart. The holder instinctively places her hand under baby’s bum and holds baby at a height where the top of his head is easily kissed. An older child will automatically bring his legs up around the holder’s waist so that his knees end up slightly higher than his bum. Pick up your child and try it for yourself".

So perhaps I am saying there are other carriers which do the same job but are a more natural position for babies... having them dangling by their crotch with their legs practically straight isn't a natural way you would hold your baby without a carrier, so why do it with?

The sort of carrier which frog-legs your LO isn't widely sold, or advertised - you just have the same basic carriers, as the deal, in the big chains (Mothercare, Boots etc) so I was just trying to raise awareness. There are other options. As I said, I haven't voted either way.

never mind the deal, this debate is getting hot lol :p
i just thought i'd add that argos and amazon issued a recall last year of all those side sling carriers due to risk of suffocation so i dont know about you guys but i'd rather see the child and know they are ok
I have used this style before and will again - never any back / spine issues, obviously common sense applies here folks ;)
