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 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)
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.
