Giveaway: Summer, Sun, and the Beco Soleil!

20130505-150300.jpg
Another day, another carrier, except today was the day that American Airlines’ entire computer system crashed right as we boarded our Chicago bound flight from Phoenix. Here I was, Atticus strapped to me in the Beco Soleil, Alyssa gripping my hand ever so tightly and our captain making an announcement about their computer system “crashing.” Lesson for the wise, don’t say the word “crashing” on an airplane. Luckily, mass hysteria didn’t erupt, but a slightly unnerved squishy mommy was going to need another cocktail.
20130505-150250.jpg
As we sat on the Tarmac, we waited, Atticus squirmed and we waited some more. Our four hour trip quickly turned into over two hours on the Tarmac, before the captain allowed us to get off the plane and settle in for another two hours at Phoenix’s very boring airport.
Prior to deplaning, Alyssa and I joked that we should get up and give the bored and restless passengers a Babywearing lesson as we were the only ones traveling with a carrier. You could see the envy in the other moms eyes, and little did they know I happened to be wearing one of the newest carriers on the market.
20130505-150320.jpg
So lets see, where to begin? The Soleil is Beco’s brand spankin’ new carrier that features; padded straps, their signature safety lock buckles,dual adjustable shoulder straps (DASS), a darted seat;padding at babies knees, a pocket at the waist perfect for stowing an ID and credit card and toy/key chain rings.

(Katie from Beco can show you the Soleil in The Babywearing Lounge at MommyCon)
The DASS system brings baby close to you. I really dig this feature for two reasons; I have not had to adjust it since we first put the carrier on and it makes Atticus feel lighter. I have never tried another carrier with this feature, and it’s nice to be able to adjust how high and low baby sits in relation to your face.

The Soleil is a welcome addition to the Babywearing market and I’m going to tell you why I really like, scratch that, love this carrier.

This is a really good looking carrier. We all know that I love Babywearing, but the average fashionista isn’t always so keen on wearing so many buckles. I usually tell her to try a wrap conversion or a wrap, but lets be honest, they can be intimidating and drive the more mainstream mom away.

What all SSCs have going against them are the buckles and webbing. Webbing hasn’t screamed fashion forward since the 90’s and even then, the goth inspired webbed and buckled trends weren’t overly popular. While the Soleil still has plenty of buckles and webbing, somehow they are muted compared to the overall design of the carrier.
Beco uses really great prints that are proprietary to their carriers. The shape of the carrier is a huge plus. Some SSC’s have a really boxy shape, and the curves of the Soleil are not only comfortable for baby to sit in, but extremely flattering for mom. Also, the extra wide waist band (in comparison to let’s say the Gemini) does wonders for eliminating the dreaded muffin top. Dare I say that the carrier is actually flattering from behind? Yes, I just called an SSC flattering, you can quote me.

Beco also makes their carriers with cotton (huge plus for the organic variation) and the foam they use is flame retardant FREE! My baby chews on the straps no matter what I do and it makes me a lot happier knowing he isn’t ingesting cancer causing toxins.

With every great thing, there will be some negatives. dun dun dun. It’s not small enough! Darn you small waist. When i back carry I like to wear the carrier on my natural waist, unfortunately with a 24″ waist, this carrier “floats” on me. While short term carrying is fine, back carries for an extended amount of time will not be as comfy for someone with a smaller build.

Second downfall of the carrier is the price of the carry all bag. I love that the bag snaps to the underhood, has a buckle at the base for added protection, and when not in use, you can store the carrier in it, but for over $40, it’s not worth it. There is a super fine line between the bag staying snapped on, and coming unsnapped. I guess that should probably serve as a signal to me that I carry too much crap.
20130505-150216.jpg
While its sister carrier, the Gemini, can be used from birth, the Soleil does require an infant insert which is sold separately. If you truly only want one carrier (do people like that really exist?) this would be a terrific option since you can utilize the infant insert until roughly 14 lbs and then ditch it and use the carrier up until 45 lbs. I tested it with a four year old and felt it was very supportive, Atticus is just shy of 30 lbs at 32.5″ tall and felt as weightless as a 30 lbs kid can get. The best thing the Soleil has going for it is the width of the seat allows kids to really grow into the carrier.
20130505-150148.jpg
Since the carrier can expand to 60″ at the waist, it is a terrific option for larger parents or those that want a carrier for mom and dad. I also think that the carrier looks great on guys despite being so flattering for women. This really cannot be said for all carriers.

Here are the carrier measurements and stats.
body 16″ wide x 17″ tall
shoulder straps 23″ (can be adjusted up to 21″ LONGER for a total of 42″)
padded waist belt 28″ (can be adjusted up to 60″)
weight capacity of the carrier: 7 – 45 lbs (3.2 – 20.4kg)
weight of the carrier: 1.5 lbs
20130505-150232.jpg
I think it’s pretty clear that this carrier rocks. It is comfortable for extended periods of time, case in point an eight hour airport adventure. It’s a really attractive carrier, and on top of it all, Atticus enjoys his rides in the Soleil. Now that I’ve shared my love for the carrier with you, i would love you to win one!

  6. Marissa -  May 5, 2013 - 3:47 pm

    We love to go on hikes and with only wraps right now its not as easy, but having this SSC would make hiking a breeze!

  7. Meg M -  May 5, 2013 - 3:50 pm

  9. Amie -  May 5, 2013 - 3:52 pm

    My family has a beach house on Kelleys Island and being able to carry my little one in the carrier when being out and about on the island this summer would be perfect!!!

  10. Kimberly M. -  May 5, 2013 - 3:52 pm

    The zoo! I have been wanting a new carrier (and would probably decide to get the infant insert since we have baby #2 on the way) but money for one of the better carriers is hard to come by. 🙂

  11. Ashley -  May 5, 2013 - 3:52 pm

    I want to win this for my group! I will try it out this summer with my toddler but it will probably go on lots of hikes all over Oregon between my other group members :).

  12. Tiffany -  May 5, 2013 - 3:52 pm

    We walk our dogs everyday and now that my daughter is getting bigger (18lbs and counting) our Moby isn’t working as well. We tried a friend’s Beco Butterfly & Gemini and LOVED them both. Sounds like the new Soleil is even better!

  13. Tasha H -  May 5, 2013 - 3:56 pm

    Would love to win this for the new squish we had on the way! <3

  14. Katie -  May 5, 2013 - 3:58 pm

  26. Lacey J -  May 5, 2013 - 4:51 pm

  31. Candice -  May 5, 2013 - 5:12 pm

    We’re hoping when we go to Kentucky we will be able to go to Louisiana also. I can only imagine the heat Down There so this would be perfect!!!

  32. Joella Maron -  May 5, 2013 - 5:15 pm

    I would take it to the beach!

  33. Heather P. -  May 5, 2013 - 5:20 pm

  34. Sharon Stone -  May 5, 2013 - 5:25 pm

    I would wear this all day with my little 13 month old who won’t leave my side but also won’t hold on with her legs lol! So I don’t get much done with her little 18 lb body attached to mine.

  35. Madison B. -  May 5, 2013 - 5:26 pm

    I would take it everywhere! Zoo, park, grocery shopping!

  36. Jessica -  May 5, 2013 - 5:29 pm

    I would use it to walk around the arboretum and zoo with baby this summer!

  37. Heather SF -  May 5, 2013 - 5:33 pm

    we’re moving this week, so we’d use the new Beco to go exploring around our new neighborhood 😀

  41. Charlotte Lapetina -  May 5, 2013 - 6:03 pm

    I would wear it when we go to SeaWorld this summer. I’d also wear it shopping and when we go camping.

  42. Jerra -  May 5, 2013 - 6:09 pm

    I would be so delighted for a new wrap that would be comfortable for long periods of use! We are about to move to 5 acres and will be tending a large garden. My 9 month old is a speedy crawler so, therefore, he will need to be worn when we are outside or when we go on long hikes in our woods. My 3 year old still loves to be worn and this would be a great way to have “mommy and me time”. Thanks for the chance at this beautiful Soleil!

  43. lace -  May 5, 2013 - 6:23 pm

    I’d go to the beach, the zoo, hikes, farmers markets and many, many other places. What an amazing carrier.

  44. Kimberly D -  May 5, 2013 - 6:30 pm

    I hope I win it! It would make our summer trip to cali so much easier if I had this to carry ben in 😀

  45. Emiley -  May 5, 2013 - 6:31 pm

    My husband and I love to fish but a babysitter is not always available so I would carry him in it while fishing! 🙂

  46. Erica -  May 5, 2013 - 6:45 pm

    This post makes me want to try it! I definitely need a few new wraps and have been considering a carrier for baby number two. Winning one would be awesome too. 😉

  47. Karly -  May 5, 2013 - 6:57 pm

    I love Becos and want one of these so bad!!

  48. Megan -  May 5, 2013 - 7:17 pm

    I would use it EVERYWHERE! We have a trip to Boston coming up and this would be awesome!

  49. Debi Lynn -  May 5, 2013 - 7:35 pm

    Love the ability to use the Soleil for a newborn and toddler!!

  50. kelly v -  May 5, 2013 - 7:50 pm

    This carrier looks awesome! It would be awesome for when we move to the second floor next month

  51. Ashley -  May 5, 2013 - 7:54 pm

    I’ve been wanting to get an SSC but I was worried that me being plus sized would be a problem. I would love to try this one and see if it works with my big ol’ butt 😉

    • Ashley -  May 5, 2013 - 7:55 pm

      Oh! And I’d use it mainly around the house and to take ds to see the sites in the city 🙂

  52. Andrea -  May 5, 2013 - 8:04 pm

    Baby #2 is coming in September and I’m hoping to do a baby moon in Hawaii or Mexico

  57. Jami M -  May 5, 2013 - 9:24 pm

  61. Sue // As It Seems -  May 5, 2013 - 10:29 pm

    I would wear my baby on our cross-ocean flight we have coming next month! And of course, everywhere else we go.

    Camping & Manhattan (not the same trip!)

  71. Allison -  May 6, 2013 - 6:07 am

    This would be fabulous to try out with my guy! I’ve been wanting to branch out to SSCs. =)
    This looks perfect for longer trips out with the whole family, zoo, museum, etc.

  72. Jen -  May 6, 2013 - 8:38 am

    I have a feeling that I’m going to be using the crap out of my carriers when baby #2 comes along this fall. This one looks perfect!

  73. Sarah -  May 6, 2013 - 9:11 am

    Where wouldn’t I use this carrier?!

  74. Marie -  May 6, 2013 - 9:15 am

    I would take the new baby to the playground so I could chase after the twins

  79. Chelsea -  May 6, 2013 - 11:19 am

  80. Cassie Dull -  May 6, 2013 - 12:13 pm

    We would go to the zoo, the mall, cookouts, visiting family, walking around the neighborhood! Anywhere!

  82. Amy -  May 6, 2013 - 2:00 pm

    We would go hiking this summer! Maybe my DH would use a SSC : )

  83. Carrie -  May 6, 2013 - 3:28 pm

    I would love a carrier as functional as this! I did not baby wear as much as I would have liked with my first and intend to do much more wearing this time around. Especially if I can get a quality baby carrier!

    • Carrie -  May 6, 2013 - 3:29 pm

      Oh, and I would wear him everywhere!

  84. Karyn -  May 6, 2013 - 5:06 pm

    I NEED this!!!! We live outside and I have to chase big brother around. A beach trip wouldn’t be bad either 😉

  86. Bri -  May 6, 2013 - 11:48 pm

    I am due here in May (18 days left) and want to get into wearing. My family thinks I am crazy, but I love to hike and frankly think I need three hands, so I should at least be able to use my two! If I won this I can assure you we (baby and I) would go many places and convince my family that wearing isn’t so strange (heck it is even useful)!

  87. Marianna -  May 7, 2013 - 1:58 am

    This would sooo be going with me to CA this summer!!

  88. Marta -  May 7, 2013 - 7:47 am

    Doing errands and running around the city with two kids. I have 2.5 yo and newborn. This would be great for my baby while the older one would seat in the stroller. 😛

  89. Tracy -  May 7, 2013 - 9:54 am

    I would fly to California in it. 🙂

  90. MigZubie -  May 7, 2013 - 10:22 am

    I would take the Beco Soleil and our new born on a hike through the woods!

    LOVE this carrier..would love one of my owen 😉

  93. Tabitha -  May 7, 2013 - 1:03 pm

    Love my Gemini, but wish it had a place to stash keys. I found the soleil and love it. My husband will finally be done with residency and we can take some real vacations. I’d love to use the Soleil in D.C, the beach, NYC, or anywhere else life may take us.

  94. Joanne Gregory -  May 7, 2013 - 1:22 pm

    I would use it when I walk along the pier downtown.

  95. Amanda -  May 7, 2013 - 2:27 pm

  96. Melissa -  May 7, 2013 - 4:02 pm

  97. Delaina -  May 7, 2013 - 6:03 pm

    I would go everywhere! I am always wearing my 1 year old while chasing my 2 year old where ever we go.

  98. Tara -  May 7, 2013 - 6:05 pm

    I would use it anywhere I go! I really think this would turn into my “go to” carrier!

  99. Erin G -  May 7, 2013 - 6:07 pm

    I would take my older child to the activities at the local parks this summer while keeping my younger child safely contained when needed.

  100. Laura -  May 7, 2013 - 6:10 pm

    Great carrier for summer concerts and walks!

    We would go to the zoo, museums, parks, the possibilities are endless!

  105. Alicia Burns -  May 7, 2013 - 6:20 pm

    I almost bought an ergo before I did my research. Now, I need and want a beco!

  106. Kristen -  May 7, 2013 - 6:21 pm

    I need a carrier so bad!! I’ve tried everything under the son and nothing works for me or my son. I have a terrible back and my son is a whopping 19 pounds at 4 months old! I’ve heard these carriers are excellent for both issues. I’d love to win and carry my son more often without having both of my hands tied all the time! I would use it for shopping, going for walks, and of course the zoo! Thank you for such a wonderful giveaway.

  107. C Reeves -  May 7, 2013 - 6:37 pm

    Would love to win one of these! Love my 3G

  108. Erin T -  May 7, 2013 - 6:55 pm

    I would wear it on lots of trips to the zoo and checking out Minneapolis later this summer!

  109. Neluszka -  May 7, 2013 - 8:54 pm

    We’re planning a road trip out to CA to meet up with family. This would be so great to use on a beach stroll, visiting historic sites, and just walking around.

  110. Jillian -  May 7, 2013 - 10:30 pm

    I would love one for summer hikes and trips to the zoo!

  111. Desiree -  May 7, 2013 - 11:32 pm

    I would love wearing it to the zoo, hiking and Worlds of Fun this summer!

  112. Alyssa Hoffmann -  May 8, 2013 - 11:45 am

    Everywhere! I love doing anything and everything with my 2 daughters. ( alot of beach time 😛 )

  113. Jessica -  May 8, 2013 - 2:49 pm

    The beach, zoo, and anywhere else I decide to go. My babies love to be worn and are not stroller fans.

  114. Jennifer -  May 8, 2013 - 11:02 pm

    I would go to the beach, the zoo, fishing!! Everywhere!

    I need this to carry my tot! His little legs get tired when we’ve already walked 1.4 miles out to the river and are on our way back home.

  116. Melissa Alexander -  May 9, 2013 - 10:54 am

    We would go to the zoo more! We have 2 kids of carrying age and only one carrier so we end up lugging the stroller along! I would love to leave the stroller at home!

  117. Misty -  May 9, 2013 - 11:22 am

    Hiking more..we love the outdoors and being together as a family.

  118. cat -  May 9, 2013 - 1:25 pm

    getting out of the house-my 8 wk old demands to be carried!

  119. Kelly -  May 9, 2013 - 4:37 pm

    We would go to the zoo and museum.

  120. Rachel D -  May 9, 2013 - 8:04 pm

    Looks like a great carrier. Curious to try one out.

  121. Sabrina Wells -  May 9, 2013 - 8:04 pm

  122. chelsea walters -  May 9, 2013 - 8:07 pm

    how nice it would be to have such a nice carrier!

  123. stephanie -  May 9, 2013 - 8:09 pm

    i’d take it to my SIL in alabama .. she’s expecting in october!

  124. Amy -  May 9, 2013 - 8:11 pm

    What a great carrier. It would make chasing after my older child a bit easier!

  125. Amy Sanford -  May 9, 2013 - 8:13 pm

    everywhere! vacation, day trips, supermarket.

  126. Jasmine -  May 9, 2013 - 8:13 pm

    The park is where is go 🙂

  127. Dina -  May 9, 2013 - 8:18 pm

    Sounds like such a great carrier, really want one!

  128. megan -  May 9, 2013 - 8:25 pm

    I would wear this to the zoo and any other outings we go on!

  129. megan -  May 9, 2013 - 8:26 pm

    to the farmer’s markets, vegan festivals, the shore! to church and events!
    The Blood Of Jesus!!!

  130. Caitlin Azzari -  May 9, 2013 - 8:34 pm

    I’d go everywhere with this carrier, but definitely the concerts at the Oregon Zoo. I didn’t have a carrier last year, and my 1 year old loved the music, but I was holding her in my arms the whole time!

  131. Natasha Puryear -  May 9, 2013 - 8:34 pm

    We would go everywhere! My oldest is a cub scout so this would be amazing for three days of scout camp plus football and cheerleading practice!

  132. Nicole Laudenslager -  May 9, 2013 - 8:35 pm

    I would love to try the new Beco Soleil with my daughter! Thanks for the chance 🙂

  133. Sydney N -  May 9, 2013 - 8:43 pm

    We would/will go hiking at bushkill falls, rehoboth beach and the zoo & much more! I can’t wait for summer 🙂

  134. samantha thorn -  May 9, 2013 - 9:25 pm

    Ahhhh I need this new Beco! ((:

  135. Leslie -  May 9, 2013 - 9:32 pm

    We would go to the beach… Our ergo is too hot….

  136. Heidi -  May 9, 2013 - 9:49 pm

    I would go hiking with my 2 year old.

  137. Rebecca L. -  May 9, 2013 - 10:09 pm

    I would use this to take my 5 month old on easy hikes, walks in the neighborhood, airport trips, and shopping!

  138. Lauren A -  May 9, 2013 - 10:38 pm

    I would go explore our new city with baby and dog!

  139. Renee -  May 9, 2013 - 10:45 pm

    I’d go to the zoo and the park!

  140. Anna Parks -  May 9, 2013 - 11:14 pm

    We would use it to walk from place to place in our small town. Nothing i hate more than to put my DD in the carseat and take the car the 12blocks to the store on a nice day.

  141. Cindy B -  May 9, 2013 - 11:17 pm

    I would love to go visit my sister in Houston 🙂 with my Beco soleil and my lil guy… thanks for the great giveaway

  142. Tanya W -  May 10, 2013 - 12:14 am

    Everywhere! Walks, Library, Cafe, Tea Bars and shows (music).
    Would dislike to think my concert ging days are over. I’m only missing a groovy carrier & protective headgear for my little one. ^-^

  143. Amanda Copeland -  May 10, 2013 - 8:53 am

    We would go to Washington DC with our Beco Soleil this summer! I have a work trip in June, and the babe comes with me when I must go! And of course everywhere around Austin where we live.

  144. Shakeeta W -  May 10, 2013 - 9:40 am

    I’d take my Beco to the beach and to MommyCon 🙂

  145. Rebecca R -  May 10, 2013 - 4:43 pm

    where wouldn’t I go with this carrier? lol the zoo, museums, the park, hiking, etc…

  146. Jenna -  May 11, 2013 - 12:13 pm

    Sea World!! and the grocery store! lol.

  147. Kellie -  May 11, 2013 - 3:04 pm

    I’d love a Soleil for all of our summertime adventures: the beach, museums, parks, visiting family, exploring new places… Not to mention the not-always-so-adventurous stuff like trips to the post office, the grocery store, the mall, etc. 😉

  148. meghan reed -  May 11, 2013 - 8:49 pm

    I would love to have this carrier for our cross country plane trip this summer. Not to mention the beach, the aquarium, Zoo, and disneyland. With 3 boys and a military husband who isnt always around, a good carrier is the only way to get out and do anything fun. I love my gemini but REALLY want the Soleil.

  149. Jennifer Penrod -  May 11, 2013 - 10:32 pm

    I would to have this carrier for our first trip to Disneyland this summer and also for our new baby girl arriving in August 🙂

  150. Lindsey D. -  May 11, 2013 - 11:59 pm

    Hiking in Honolulu!

  151. Morgan -  May 12, 2013 - 12:18 am

    This carrier would be great for a disneyland trip!

  152. Allyson -  May 12, 2013 - 3:17 am

    I would use the carrier to go everywhere I have both my 2 year old and 2 month old with me at the same time.

  153. Tina T -  May 12, 2013 - 10:03 am

    This summer we are having a new little girl and moving to the UP of Michigan. I would love to take my new baby in the Soleil to see the Mackinaw Bridge as well as all of the other naturally beautiful landscapes in Michigan. Thanks for the chance 🙂

  154. Sydni -  May 12, 2013 - 10:08 am

    to visit our family 🙂

  155. Sheetal -  May 12, 2013 - 10:13 am

    I’d go EVERYWHERE with this carrier–the store, the zoo, the farm, a walk, the backyard 🙂

  156. erin@coldnoselodge.com -  May 12, 2013 - 10:56 am

    We would go everywhere! Especially the park to take the dogs for walks.

  157. Carrie -  May 12, 2013 - 12:00 pm

    I’d go to the beach, Atlanta Zoo, and Georgia Aquarium.

  158. Megan -  May 12, 2013 - 3:40 pm

    If I had a Beco Soleil I would take my son all over in it! Have 4 dogs to walk every day, go to the zoo and have it at the hospital for my son’s surgery this summer!

  159. tania -  May 12, 2013 - 5:31 pm

    I would love to bring baby camping with us! I miss camping last year with a newborn it was too stressful.. this year I have discovered baby carriers now just to find one I love!

  160. melanie willis -  May 12, 2013 - 10:48 pm

    I would weary soliel to the farmer market here in Louisiana’s swelterijg 105 degree summer! And to our sister state of Texas’s zoos to bring my 3 year old daughter and my 6 month old son would be so comfy in a soliel! I would wear it to my shreveport bossier baby wearer club meeting too and show it off to everyone !
