Question Gemini or Beco Butterfly II???

Hi there! I've been wanting to invest in a new ssc, but I'm torn between the Gemini and the BBII.

Things I like about the Gemini, based on the description:
-It just *looks* more comfortable than the BBII. Is that true?
-No newborn insert!
-The ability to cross the straps... I'd imagine this helps to achieve a nice fit.

Things I don't likei:
-Those weird, dangling cords that hang from the head support
-No pocket
-No true sleeping hood

Things I like about the BBII, based on the description:
-Easy back carries (I'm not much of a back carrier, but it would be cool to try)
-A pocket

Things I don't like:
-The need for the infant insert
-More buckling necessary

What do you think? I'd especially love to hear from mamas who have both! Specifically, how annoying is it to use the BBII infant insert?

Oh-- and if this helps, I have a 4 month old and a 2 1/2 year old. I probably want to have at least one more child, so I'm looking for a carrier that works well from newborn to toddler.

Wife to my best friend, L Proud, first-time mama to lively toddler, E (2/10)
