I love babywearing.
Babywearing was one decision I made long ago–when I was 7 months-pregnant. But when I browsed through the website of various brands, I was always surprised by the price range. I won’t lie, I found carriers pretty expensive at first. Thankfully, Soul’s traveler program came to my rescue. So basically, through their traveler program, they send a carrier of your choice to you for a couple of days to try and test and then you can decide if you’d like to buy it or not. Now, after using their carrier for almost a month, I’d give away anything to get one for myself!! I’m not even exaggerating! The quality, the built, the fabric- everything about their products is top notch!
After I became their brand ambassador, I got one carrier of my choice again and I picked Linen Full buckle in the color peppermint. Now that I have both, here’s a comprehensive comparison for you in case you’re confused as to which one to buy
Soul AnoonA VS Soul Full Buckle (Standard)
AnoonA is the one in the colour lead (grey)
Full buckle is the one in the colour peppermint
1. Weight Carrying Capacity
AnoonA: AnoonA is one ingeniously designed carrier. I guess, it’s the only kind of full buckle which is fit for children from birth to toddler-hood. So, if you’re an expecting mom or a new mom- this carrier is the best investment for you. As per their website- it can carry babies from 3.2-20kgs.
Standard Full Buckle: Full buckles come in two sizes, standard and toddler. The standard one can carry babies weighing 7-18kgs.
AnoonA: It has a completely adjustable panel and crossable shoulder straps. The waistband has adjustment settings that can be changed based on the weight of the baby. There are also settings that clinch the shoulder belt and buckles at mid-panel level too, which can again be adjusted as per the size of the baby to get that perfect snug feel.
Standard Full Buckle: It has a 2- way shoulder adjustments and one strap for the back/chest sliding.
Check the photos to see the different adjustment settings:
(Picture 1 is AnoonA and picture 2 is Standard full buckle in each category)
AnoonA: It offers 5 carrying positions: Newborn, front, front facing out, hip and back.
Standard Full Buckle: It offers front, front facing out and back carry.
4. Additional features:
- The waistband has a small pocket which can tuck in keys and your mobile phone too.The hood is detachable so that the wearer can decide if he/she wants to keep it or can simply remove it.There is a fold-able neck support in the front which makes it ideal for floppy and fragile newborns.Standard Full Buckle:
- Minimal buckles and adjustment settings – so it’s quicker to carry and easy to use.Zero lerning curve- I admit, AnoonA took me a while to understand while the standard one was hassle free!
- When folded, the linen one is ultra small and takes bare minimum space in the diaper bag, as compared to AnoonA which requires relatively larger space, though not significantly large.
5. Price Range:
AnoonA: Rs. 5750/- plus taxes
Standard Full Buckle: Starts from Rs. 3750/- plus taxes
