What they say:

“Comfort made compact with our light and portable carrier. Caboo DXgo allows you to carry your little one, perfectly supported in the right position as you transition from your newborn style carrier. 
It can be used on both the front and back, start on the front (from 6 months+/6.5kg) and then switch to the back (from 8 - 36 months/ up to 20kgs). The elasticated chest strap and padded shoulder and waist straps make it supremely comfortable to wear but it is compact and light enough to pack down and store in your change bag so it is always on hand.”

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I would recommend the Caboo DXgo to a fellow mum/friend due to it being very compact and lightweight. Babies tend to come with a lot of things that are needed to be taken out with you on all occasions. The fact that it compacts down so small and has the carry bag attached to it makes it easy to take with you even when carrying all those other things.

How did this product make your life easier?     

This Caboo DXgo can make life easier as a mum as if you have a very clingy baby like mine then you can get on with varied household and daily tasks and have them with you. It's small so you can take it with you if you just need to quickly pop to the shops and get a few bits. You can just put them on your back like a backpack and head off to do what you need to.

If I was choosing a rear facing carrier I would definitely choose this one. Mainly because of the fact it is so lightweight. If you have a little chunk like me you can really do with something that won't add further weight to you when you carry them. They feel supported and it's just so compact when folded away you can forget you even have it with you.

Having never even heard of the Caboo DXgo before I was very surprised to find it is extremely user friendly. It folds into a tiny little bag so is perfect for just popping in your bag incase you need it. It goes on so much quicker than a wrap but is such soft material it fits round baby like a stretchy.

How did this product make your life easier?     

I have used a stretchy wrap with my little girl from birth which I love. I have recently been trying out a few other styles of carrier in order to support her a bit more now she's 10 months old and nosy! The Caboo DXgo is so easy to put on I will be taking it everywhere! It is perfect for just putting her in while I pop in the shop or somewhere.

This Caboo DXgo, for me, does everything I want it to. I wanted something more supportive than a stretchy wrap, which this is, but at the same time it still holds her close and snug just like the stretchy. I love how easy it is to use and how comfortable it is and the material is perfect for keeping her cool in this hot weather.

What changes would you make to this product?

I think the Caboo DXgo is very well designed and I can't really fault any of its features, when in use. I did however find it quite difficult to get the hood into its storage pocket without folding and creasing it all up. I could also do with a guide showing how to fold it properly to get it back in its storage bag how it arrived.

Lightweight carrier with lovely soft material, very good storage bag attached to it to keep all together and travels easily due to being lightweight! Available in a variety of colours and easy to access, I found the straps extremely comfortable while wearing and they didn't cut into my shoulders or armpits while carrying my son out and about and really helped with being able to be hands free for my 3 year old. Loved the colour and the material, the netted hood was a bonus on both the hot sunny day and the rainy day I used the product. 

How did this product make your life easier?     

The Caboo DXgo made my life easier with my son who is currently teething and will only relax being in my arms. So with him in the carrier meant I was able to get on with doing the things I needed to do! Was very easy to use while going to the shops and having my hands free for my 3 year old, while my son was also able to look around himself. Highly enjoyed being in there. 

What changes would you make to this product?

I personally found my son enjoyed being in there, but his legs felt abit too wide apart and the fabric left red marks around his thighs. But all in all a lovely carrier!

The Caboo DXgo is easy to fold and the fact that the carry bag is attached is very handy and it can't get lost. The carrier is very lightweight and doesn't add weight to the child. It is comfy for the adult and the child, my one year old was very happy in it and her legs were well supported. The hood/neck support works well as a neck support when the child is a sleep, it stops their head bobbing around.

How did this product make your life easier?     

My daughter likes to walk but often not too far, it means I don't need to take the pushchair everywhere anymore. We went to a zoo and because she was up at our eye level she could see the animals clearly and not just people's legs. It makes walking the dog easier as I'm not trying to push a pram and hold 2 leads.

It was easy to use although the instructional video was much more comprehensive than the booklet that came with it. The carrier is very light and the carry bag is handy. The best thing is that I can have 2 hands to cook with or do the supermarket shop with ease, I will definitely be purchasing one as I have found it useful.

What changes would you make to this product?

The only small issue I have is that the neck support is difficult to clip into place, when the child is in the carrier you have to do it one handed and this is almost impossible to do. It also doesn't make a good sunshade for a bigger child as its not big enough and pushes down on the child's head. My daughter happily wears a hat so this isn't a huge problem for me but could be for someone else.

The Caboo DXgo is great for popping in your bag when going out. It folds up so small and is so easy and quick to use it’s perfect. It's much more comfortable than a lot of structured carriers as it's quite similar to a stretchy but being buckled and structured it is much more supportive than a stretchy, especially for a nosy baby.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The size of the Caboo DXgo when folded makes it so easy to just have in my bag whenever I go out. If my toddler gets tired she can go in the buggy and I can put baby in the carrier. Also if I'm just popping out I can put baby in there instead of getting the buggy out. My little girl loves being carried.

I love this product. I have always used a stretchy wrap for my little girl but recently I have been borrowing different style carriers from friends to see which is better for a more active baby. The Caboo DXgo seems to have all the benefits of the stretchy wrap (it feels snug and secure without being tight and you still have the control of the tightness with the straps) but with the ease of a structured carrier.

What changes would you make to this product?

If I could change one thing about the Caboo DXgo it would be the hood. It is quite big, which is great, but it doesn't seem to fit properly in the hood storage pocket without having to fold it and squash it in. Also when it is not in use, but not in the pocket, there is no way to hold on down so it just flaps about. It feels like it could do with a popper or clips or something to hold it down when not being used.
