I had a friend give me this carrier and it has been such a life saver. I use it when I need to shop with just me and Darbee. I can't see over the car seat when it is in the basket at the store. I use it when I need to cook and she wants to be held. But I mostly use it when I go for a walk or when I take Tanesssa to school. She loves to be outside so it makes it nice for both of us to be able to be outside and enjoy.
