The Mom’s Deluxe 3-1 Combo Carrier has been very useful to a large family of six. I love the fact that it is a multi-purpose carrier and compact in size. It cuts down on overpacking and you can leave the house with one bag, not four. My son is a big curious baby and heavy to carry . He enjoys facing out and I find it easy carrying him on my hip. My Husband enjoys using the Combo Carrier to walk our son up to our local cafe. He can still sit comfortably with our son still attached to the carrier on his lap. I have tried many carriers over the years and we are very happy with the deluxe 3 in 1 Combo Carrier.
