I'm an experienced babywearer and although nothing beats the quickness of a ring sling, I really like wearing the beco when I need more support for baby and for longer durations. I looked at both the Ergo and Beco and ultimately choose this one as the profile is a bit more streamlined and stylish.
The major difference between the two is the way the baby is put into the carrier. With Beco, there is an additional set-up inside the carrier so the baby is actually passable between two people (or front to back) without baby coming out. It is an extra step to get baby in but a quick one. I also love how the extra strapping rolls up and tucks away neatly.
A great buy and well worth it. Much better than those awful forward facing carriers that are 1) back for your back and 2) even worse for baby's hips.
