Which Lending Library: Saturday
How the Carrier was Obtained: Purchased direct through Soul Slings using a Lending Library discount!
Waistband: The carrier adjusts using snaps in the waistband, similar to a Tula Free-to-Grow. Panel base width is adjustable from 7” to 15”. The AnoonA offers a pocket but instead of being on the panel-side of the waist band it is on the side of the carrier. Thus accessible whether baby is on your front or back!
Panel Height: Instead of PFAs it offers an adjustable panel at the top (in the same location PFAs are found) again like the Tula Free-to-Grow. Panel height is adjustable from 11” to 16”
Panel Width: The carrier also has an adjustable cinch from left to right on the panel near the legs-out-padding to help the body cinch in the mid-section. The Ergo Adapt offers a similar snap-adjustment on the middle of its panel. Body panel width is adjustable from 6.5” to 14.5”.
Neck Support: the soul has padding at the top of the panel, this reminds me of the neck support on a Beco Gemini and Ergo Adapt. When the carrier is cinched it provides more structure near the infant’s head. When fully extended this provides back or neck support to larger babies.
Buckles: Soul’s wait band buckles on the hip, similar to a Tula waist. The shoulder straps offer a unique buckling option. The buckles are located on the front of the carrier, this allows them to be unbuckled and crossed-straps. It also allowed for straight backpack straps. BUT my favorite feature it the lack of buckle-in-armpit which can eb uncomfortable in a tank top, or rub, just depending on your fit!
Positions: The AnoonA can be worn in 5 different carry positions. Including forward facing, inward facing, hip, and back carry.
Hood: Large, flat hood which uses snaps to connect to the shoulder straps. Similar to the Ergo.
We really enjoyed our trip through Target in the AnoonA and found it to be comfortable even with a big kid!
