When Infantino sent me their Sync Carrier, I was a little skeptical. I had never used any kind of wrap before. Just looking at it made me a little nervous. After watching the instructional video and practicing a couple times, I was ready to try it with Stella. I highly recommend watching videos. I live in a small town. It's hard to find another baby wearer, let alone an expert to hold instructional workshops. I have relied on YouTube to learn to use all of my baby carriers.
I only used the Sync for a front, facing in hold. It was fairly easy and very comfortable. All of the weight was equally distributed and the large area covered by the wrap contributed to the comfort. After a while, though, Stella seemed to sag a little and I never could get her quite tight enough or high enough. Perhaps more practice will remedy that.
Normally, I use a ring sling or a structured carrier when I wear Stella. I do prefer those to the wrap, mostly because they are easy to use and I can get them on quickly when we're out. Also, the color/pattern on the Sync leave a lot to be desired (it's true, I am a little vain). All in all, though, the Sync Carrier isn't bad. I'd prefer to use it with a newborn baby and wish it wasn't so loud. It is very comfortable.
