HELP! I HATE MY BECO BUTTERLY!!!!! Aaaah!

Okay - it just come in yesterday, I watched the video this morning like 10 times, because it goes wayyyyy toooo fassstt for me and I practiced w/ a teddy bear. I still don't really understand all the buckles and straps & wat knot... and I think I have myself suited up correctly and it rubs my armpits and the shoulder straps pucker up - I feel like my boobs are just too big for it...... I can't seem the find the right adjustment at all - - in a front carry my boobs are majorly squishing out the sides and not only does it look ridiculous, it isn't all that comfortable either. As of right now , I so liked my regular mei tai muuuuuchhhh better! All the readjusting w/ the beco really frustrates me

Sorry mama! I have really been wanting to try one but after this, I'm not sure. Thanks for posting it. I may just get a regular Mei Tai instead!

Yeah, too many bells & whistles for me - I thought tying up the mei tai was a job - but this thing is ridiculously overwhelming for me! I'll be posting it up on FSOT I'm sure.... Maybe buy a couple 2 or 3 mei tais instead...... i kinda wanna try an ergo... but dk, after this experience.......

Re: HELP! I HATE MY BECO BUTTERLY!!!!! Aaaah!

I just got mine too. I am still learning. I'm going to keep giving mine a try and hope that I figure it out and it gets more comfortable. I have big boobs too. I could get it comfortable enough front carry and comfortable enough back carry, but had to change the settings which frustrated me. In the video the person can just move them all around without having to change settings.

I hope that you can figure it all out and love it!!!!

I do find my MTs much more comfortable...I just need something quick for rains and such...and I needed help with back carries.

Good luck!

Re: HELP! I HATE MY BECO BUTTERLY!!!!! Aaaah!

I had the exact same problems when I tried a Beco - I could never get it adjusted to fit comfortably, even with all the different adjusting options. The straps being in my armpits was the worst part. I have an Ergo that is the most comfortable carrier ever, and I really wanted to love my gorgeous Beco too, but I ended up selling it.

And actually, I'm 5'10" and when my 5'3" friend tried my Beco, she had the exact same problem. She was trying to choose between the Beco and the Ergo, and she ended up getting an Ergo too.

Re: HELP! I HATE MY BECO BUTTERLY!!!!! Aaaah!

I suggest looking for a Beco 4th gen. They're much prettier than Ergo. And Ergo has some questionable business practices because of their broad patent . . . they're going after WHAM makers of SSC's.

I love my 4th gen. (I owned 3!) And when I got my Butterfly, I was sorely disappointed. If you don't want to look for a 4th gen, look at Angelpack LX or Calyx or Nana's Jetpack or Patapum. There are a lot more options than Ergo vs. Beco.

I've never really understood the difference between the 4th gen and the butterfly... guess i'll go do some research.... comfort to me is way more important than looks, im not too crazy about any beco prints really.... the one i got is morgan.
