It has so far been a very successful purchase, as not only does my very fussy son seem to like it my partner also doesn't mind wearing it! we've found in the past that my son has fought against being restricted in any way and because this sling allows the arms to be free he doesn't seem to mind being in it. I have yet to try it on my back but have found the other carrying methods (front and side) very effective, although I have to admit it can be a bit fiddly getting him in, although I'm sure with time I'll get that sussed. My only negative is I wish there was more of a range of colours (I know they had a greater selection in the past and don't quite get why they've restricted the choice - the ones on the sutemi site looked nicer to me). Anyway all in all I am very happy - to my mind it's like a cross between a baby bjorn and a hippy chick seat... which both I liked using. Thankyou.
