Baby carrier

Can anybody share their pros and cons for lillebaby vs tula? Im expecting my second in December and wanting to get a good quality carrier that's easy to use for breastfeeding, comfortable and lasting. I was thinking of getting the lillebaby but after looking at them side by side the tula looks like it would fit a petite person better than the lillebaby (I'm 5 ft and about 115 lbs [pre-pregnsncy]). Any firsthand advice/ experiences are appreciated!

    I’m not sure what those are, but are use the infantino 4-in-1. I love it

    It’s very adjustable and fits a lot of body types. Me and fiancé alike)

    I’m 5’2 and the lillebaby fits me pretty well. I’ve never had a Tula but I really like my lilliebaby.

    I’m almost exactly your size and love my Tula. Never tried the Lillebaby though.

    Does anybody know a place I'd be able to try on both and compare?

    I have both. They are both great. Unless you get the Tula free to grow, you can’t use until baby is 15 pounds. Both are supportive. I find myself reaching for my lillebaby, because I got the all seasons and I can use it more comfortably in the summer, and she can forward face.

    I am also tiny and have a Tula no lillebaby. I am going to try a Sakura bloom-scout next. I am not crazy about the shoulder straps on the Tula. You can nurse really well wearing it tho

    I love the Lille baby but never tried the Tula. I used to nurse her in the Lille and it worked well. I also just took my 23 pound toddler on a hike yesterday in the Lillebaby and she was comfy the whole way and I never felt even a bit of pressure on my shoulders or lower back. It was awesome. As for places where you can try both side by side, You can google “baby wearing international” and find a local chapter. They usually post their libraries right online. Then you can go to the next meeting and try them on and see what you think. That’s how I chose the Lillebaby.

    I loved the beco brand carrier. I’m virtually your size and it was so comfy. And super easy to adjust to my husband’s larger frame and back to mind.

    150% get a Sakura Bloom Scout. Better than both of these.
