This all-in-one, newborn ready Omni 360 Cool Air Mesh has all the carry positions plus ultimate ventilation to keep you both cooler.

It is: Breathable, lightweight all-mesh carrier - Ergonomic, forward facing option - Adjustable from newborn to toddler - Lumbar support for extra back comfort - Acknowledged as hip healthy: International Hip Dysplasia Institute, and with the ErgoPromise 10-year Guarantee. The carrier is machine washable, has a built in sun hood for privacy and comes with a handy pouch.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Stephanie: It is versatile, really comfortable to wear and I can use it from a newborn right up to when my baby is older and heavier making it great value for money. Not many carriers offer that possibility. This product is light and great for summer wearing too! The mesh fabric meant we both stayed nice and cool.

Vicky: I liked the ease of use of this product, it's quick and easy to get going with and I imagine this would be the case even if you hadn't used a baby carrier before. It is very comfortable to wear, and the choice of strap positions are great. I really like the mesh design which has been a godsend in the hot weather, much cooler than other carriers I have used. It's easily cleaned by popping in the machine on a gentle wash which is good for the light colour.

Maria: This product is great quality with lots of additional extras (e.g. a hood for the baby). It is easy to take on and off I liked that there are four different carry positions. It is comfortable to wear with the support and padding. The material is great and keeps you cool - it has clearly been designed with the comfort of the mother and baby in mind. It is easily transportable and can be folded and put underneath the stroller.

How did this product make your life easier?

Julie: Wow, where to start with how much easier life is with this carrier. It has saved my back and arm muscles from extra strain. It is so easy to use and the instructions were straightforward and easy to follow. If I need to pop out it is actually quicker and easy to put her in the carrier than sort the pushchair out.

Jennifer: This is a great product for getting out and about with baby without having to use a pushchair. It gave me more freedom to take the dog for a walk or to pop to the shops as it gave me both hands-free. It is also good to have baby close and feel comfortable to give her one-to-one attention.

Brigitta: I have tried different baby carriers before but I must say, this one was the ONE! Very easy to use, extremely comfortable and my little one loves it too. It is fairly easy to fold when not in use and doesn`t take up much space at all. Easy to wash too.

Would you choose this product to win?

Margaret: I would choose this product above all others. Even though it is quite expensive, I prefer it as it is easy to use and both me and my daughter find it extremely comfortable. This provides great back support and it is easy to switch from forward-facing to parent-facing.

Alli: I think usability and fit are the reason it should win, it's very comfortable and I give it five stars for that.

Maria: I think this product has a good chance of winning. It stands out for being great quality, practical, easy to use, lightweight and with good features.

What changes would you make to this product?

Alli: It would be the colour, I think there need to be more colour options. I love the comfort and ease of the carrier and people have complimented on how comfortable my daughter looks in it but I would prefer a different look to the product.

Vicky: If the product came in a more exciting range of colours. All of the colours are very neutral and lots of people who babywear enjoy the bold patterns and designs. The use of brighter colours would appeal to many parents.

Jennifer: The carrier is chunky and bulky. Overall I loved using it but if it wasn't quite so bulky it would feel better on especially as I am only small. Other than that I found the product really good and the more I use it I think the easier it will become to get baby in and out quicker.
