You have a new baby on the way! What are some of your must-haves for new parents?
"This is a fun oneÖ As most moms have learned, thereís a lot of crap out there that leaves us wondering why we have certain things lying around the house, let alone why we even registered for them in the first place. In the spirit of keeping it simple (this time íround), Iím gonna go with 3 things:
1st Ė a Safe, Reliable, Easy to Operate + Easy on your Body stroller/car seat system. Weíre going with the Orbit Stroller Travel System. Itís got a big price tag, but after having been through my share of snap-n-go systems with the first kid, this is the way to go. Not to mention that Iíll be saving money (and my back) in the long run.
2nd Ė a Good Carrier. Speaking of back-saving goodies, this is a biggie. Iím not a fan of slings because of the asymmetric way they force you to hold the baby. My pick is the BECO Baby Carrier. Infant to 45lbs all in one system. And itís organic!
3rd Ė Good Boob Pads. "

"If simple is your style and on-the-go is your lifestyle, check out the new Gemini 4-in-1 by Beco Baby Carrier, an O.C.-based company. The Gemini trends with current patterns, is made of organic cotton and has little hardware. Its versatility lets you carry your child (newborn to toddler) front-facing in, front-facing out, in-hip carry or back- carry configurations. Dads look good in it, and moms can multitask more.

Maternity & baby gear reviews Gemini
"Beco Baby Carrier solved these issues of mine with a simple term: four-in-one. (Read: more bang for your buck.) Beco's Gemini is a 4-in-1 carrier. That means it can carry in four positions: on the front facing inward, on the front facing outward, on the hip, and on the back. So you can figure out what works best for your little one without having to purchase and try multiple carriers. Also, because it fits babies from 7 to 35 pounds, there is no need to purchase an infant insert or a second carrier for your newborn.........."

"Beco is one of the biggest names on the market when it comes to baby carriers. Good baby carriers, that is! The other is Ergo. Many, many parents find themselves looking for an excellent carrier, and try to choose between the two. While both are great options, I'd like to touch on some of the features that makes the Beco really stand out.......
- Beco Baby Carrier Review
""Even in the face of some negative press, has anyone noticed how popular baby wraps and carriers have become? One of my favorites is the adorable (and affordable!) Beco Baby Carrier for newborns and toddlers (weighing 7-45 pounds). ""
- Travel in style: Beco Baby Carrier
"If its stunning fabrics (tasteful prints and sophisticated solids), ergonomic design (wide padded shoulder straps and a cushy, adjustable belt for lumbar support) and ability to be worn four ways (facing in, facing out, on the back and on the hip) didn't have you at hello, then Becco's response to concerns about spinal development will likely seal the deal. The new carrier's bottom can be folded up, creating a seated position (rather than dangled from the crotch) for forward-facing rides. This adjustment also provides a snugger fit, and eliminates the need for an infant insert, while carrying smaller babes. Better still, it has a foldable headrest to accommodate growing babes (7 to 35 lbs.) and straps that can be crossed at the back for front carries and can even be used while nursing. Need we say more?"

"I LOVE, LOVE the inside panel of the Beco Baby Carrier-- which I have not seen on any other baby carriers before. The reason why I love it is because if you have an infant, the inside panel ensure the security of your baby. My friend who has tried other baby carriers before said that her baby fell out a baby carrier (falling out from the bottom) because there was no fabric panel on the inside to provide that extra security. And this is why I think the inside panel support is so awesome. "

"It is by far the most comfortable carrier I've worn...... This carrier and some features comes with an instructional DVD, a hoody that snaps on to the carrier to protect babe's head while sleeping, and it has a little pocket on the carrier where you can store it, it also comes with an infant insert and when you fold this up, it can be used as a hip carry!
What carrier has that? Beco!
