Beco Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



I contacted Beco well over a year ago about a review. Never really heard back from them. BOY was I surprised when I got an email about a month ago asking if I wanted to review a product!! How exciting was that?

It was nice to know that even if I didn't get a response before, they are reading and paying attention!

So I was offered my choice of Beco Mini. I told him I'd be interested in either the Carnival or Natalie.
I was shocked to open my box and find BOTH of them in there!! How generous!
They come in their own little carrying case.
 Each one has instructions on them!!
 When you put the carrier on the front, you just cross over the straps and attach them to the sides.
 Natalie! It's so cute!
 You can see where it snaps on the front/side there
 Carnival. I love this print.
 When you have the carrier in back. Instead of just crossing them, you twist them like you're going to tie them in a bow and then snap them. It keeps the straps away from child's neck.


We both love them. They're super easy to do. She can even KIND OF do the front carry herself. She's been figuring it out. 

She asks me multiple times a day to put on her carrier for her so she can wear her dolls. She loves it and so do I. It's a great learning skill for her now so she can one day wear her own babies!

I love the prints they come in. These are the two girliest. There's also a cow print and a Paige print. It's grey but does have white flowers on it, but I think it's neutral. So boys can easily wear their babies too!

I won a Beco Gemini on a blog a long time ago and I loved it with Avery for a while there. I don't wear her anymore, one because she's plenty big enough to walk places and two because I'm pregnant and don't think it's for the best. 

But I can't wait to use it again when baby comes!

Price: The Mini is $29. It's worth it.

Overall: *****

I would want the Mini Paige, because that is the one I have. I would get it for my neice... I used a Moby wrap when MacKenzie was first born and my neice, Rileigh wanted to wear her baby in her "shirt" like Aunt Amanda :) so I purchased her a Mini Moby. Now that I am using a Beco she wants a new carrier also :)
