You say you want the soft, snuggly feel of a wrap, with the convenience of buckles?
The LennyLamb Lenny Erogonomic Carrier is a soft structured buckle carrier made from LennyLamb wrap fabric, and BWI of STL Gateway has not one, but two of these carriers in baby size for you to try and borrow!

What do our educators and members have to say about this carrier?
It’s soft, right out of the package… the fabric isn’t too heavy making it good for any type of weather. It’s my favorite carrier. There are many places to adjust straps to get a PERFECT fit and the waistband is amazing! ~Lauren
I checked this out and loved it! Super soft and with so many places to adjust, it was easy to get a snug, wrapped like fit, but with the quick ups of a buckle carrier! ~Krystal
I had a caregiver tell me that she liked this carrier when she had to sit for a while; the waist was much more comfortable than a harder foam waist. ~Leigha
[Editor’s note: What a helpful comment – I never thought about that!]
