I had the opportunity to try a Buckle Tai baby carrier from the Etsy seller Abuela's Baby Creations on my family vacation to Disney World a few months ago. Let me tell you, Disney World is an easy place to take a baby if you have a fantastic baby carrier, and the Buckle Tai fit the bill perfectly.
There were all sorts of instances on the trip where my baby couldn't be in a stroller (strollers aren't allowed in many attractions throughout the parks). Even though he was only 5 months old at the time, any baby gets heavy very quickly when you have to carry it! The Buckle Tai allowed me to take the baby out of the stroller and keep him close while still enjoying every aspect of the attraction. I also learned that my little one was not going to sleep in the stroller with so much going on around him! I could put baby facing me in the Buckle Tai then pull the unique “sleep hood” over his head to block out lights and sound around him. The hood, combined with the closeness and warmth of mom, soothed him right to sleep.
Along with all that, the Buckle Tai is easy to use. As its name implies, the carrier fastens with buckles, instead of complicated wrapping and knots. It takes all of 30-seconds to get it on, and just a few more to get baby secured inside. The straps are all padded for extra comfort, and I could wear it for hours without discomfort. The designs are also fabulous! I loved my brown floral pattern, and I receive tons of compliments on it whenever I wear it.
