I usually take out a double pushchair, but Archie is not the biggest fan of buggies and he won't fall asleep on his back so I rely on a carrier when he gets tired. The Ergo Stowaway fits easily under any pushchair, even with all the other bits I like to carry around and my baby boy is asleep within seconds as he cuddles into me.
The stowaway is comfortable for both parent and child and keeps baby in the best possible position for carrying, with their knees higher than their bottom and curved towards me. Babies should ideally have knee to knee support to keep their hips in the ideal position and this carrier is suitable for babies with hip problems such as hip dysplasia
Although Dylan is no longer knee to knee in this carrier, I find it incredibly supportive considering he is 35lb and he loves having a stroll on mummy's back. I have carried him for two hours without having any issues or strains and he had no complaints either. The beauty of this carrier is that whichever child wants to be picked up can fit and I don't need to carry two separate slings around with me. He loves being able to see over my shoulder and as we walk we can see all the same things and chat as we go.
It has a black sleep hood that can be tucked in during normal use, but when baby falls asleep, it attaches by poppers to your shoulders and stops their little head rolling back. It is also perfect for encouraging sleep as Archie found it very calming and dark with the hood on.
I can see us getting a lot of use out of this carrier as it is perfect for quick trips and I have also done full days with only a single pushchair and the sling for Archie. I have actually found myself reaching for this carrier more than any other as it is incredibly comfortable and unbelievably practical. I would recommend it to both experienced baby wearers and new ones as you really can't get it wrong!
