According to a reviewer it is only forward facing (as in facing parent). True?

Nope, baby can face out or in.

The description also confirms that

if anyone is interested in buying this can i please refer you to this site gives you alternatives incase you dont get on with this

I have one and I love it. My baby can now definitely face out. Check the price on amazon, though I paid more 10 months ago.

Please read info on hip dysplacia before using these carriers. There are much better and more ergonomic carriers available. Carrying your baby facing out is really not good for their comfort or hips.

Out of stock now :-(

Agree with Samm182. There are much safer and ergonomically sound carriers out there.

Just got the comfort one for £42.50, plus I had a clubcard £5 off code so it was £37.50 (rep £129.99). Very pleased. Thanks for the link, heat added!

I don't want to put a downer on this post, but I want to be honest… I started off with a baby carrier like this, but quickly changed as it was so uncomfortable. I ended up using a stretchy wrap for the first few months as it was so much more comfortable and cosy for baby, and then moved on to a different type of carrier.
If' you're after a carrier like this, you're much better off getting something like a Moby Go, or spending the extra money on something like an Ergo or a Manduca; much more comfortable for baby and wearer.

Oos

If you prioritise appearances and like how these look, then go for this.

If your priority is your baby, don't get one of these.

Harsh but true.... These aren't called 'crotch danglers' for nothing.

You want a carrier that properly supports your baby - look at a Manduca or Ergo as examples. Buy second hand if needs be.

^^^agree with all the above £36.50 for something that will be uncomfortable and could potentially cause baby harm? Spend the extra and buy something better - u can always sell it on second hand once u are done with it and recoop most if your outlay!

As said above...
Not meant to be best for baby hip position (same problem with baby bjorn)...check out manduca, boba or r&r carriers instead

Does the same apply for this one: tesco.com/dir…771

.....with baby facing in?

That one looks a bit better but ideal position would be baby's bum lower than their feet, the 'frog' position. It's a more comfortable seat for them, a lot of high street carriers don't have a seat wide enough to support this so babies end up supported in the crotch area only.

I'm not sure what to think on the hip dysplasia argument, according to Which?:

'We contacted the Royal College of Midwives to ask if this was an issue that they were investigating and were told that they were aware of no evidence to support the view that front-facing baby carriers cause hip and/or spine problems'

I used a babybjorn original carrier with my first child and he loved it, I didn't personally find it uncomfortable... apart from when his legs were long enough to kick me in the groin!
which.co.uk/bab…ty/

Have a look at this website... mumsnet.com/rev…ngs the comfort one that I ordered seems to have good reviews.

The comfort one says it has two widths at the bottom so the baby's legs can be far apart (as you are suggesting is best) or closer together.

Why should the Royal College of Midwives be aware of this? Seems an odd organisation to ask! Why would they have investigated baby carriers?

Do you think you'd be comfortable dangling from your crotch for hours at a time? I know I sure wouldn't.
