If you’re tired of lugging around a bulky, heavy stroller that leaves your hands and arms in pain and you want something more versatile and super lightweight for travel and everyday use, the Infantino Flip Advanced 4-in-1 Carrier is the perfect solution. It is among the carriers we recommend highly in our lightweight carriers list.

It’s is an inexpensive carrier that you can get for less than $30 but the downside is that it doesn’t have internal support to make it comfortable for you and your baby. If you just want to try out a low-budget carrier option as you try the babywearing experience, this can be a good starter option. If you decide babywearing is not your thing, you’ll be fine gifting this to someone else without feeling like you’ve wasted a lot of money.

The carrier’s ergonomic design with padded shoulder straps makes it easy to carry even when folded down for storage or transport in a car. The whole thing weighs just 1 pounds – less than most popular single strollers! And it’s made from durable materials which hold up well to wear and tear.

Infantino Flip Advanced 4-in-1 Carrier Review

Infantino Flip Advanced 4-in-1 Carrier is a versatile carrier that allows you to carry your child in four different ways. This multi-functional carrier allows you to carry your baby in four different positions: front facing, parent facing forward, parent facing backward and inward.

The ergonomic seat can be adjusted to fit your growing baby, and the shoulder straps and waist belt can be adjusted for a more comfortable fit. This carrier features an advanced 5 point harness with a protective mosquito net to keep your child secure and protected. The Infantino Flip Advanced 4-in-1 Carrier also includes three hanging stuffed toys that will keep your kiddo entertained and happy during their outings.

Other features summary:

  • It is Machine Washable
  • Its Color is Grey 
  • its Weight Limit ranges from 8-32 lbs 
  • Closure type: Full-buckle closure 
  • Materials: Polyester and cotton 
  • Dimensions: (HxWxD) 15 x 10.0 x 2.0 Inches 

The ergonomic design of this carrier provides maximum back support while keeping the baby close to you. It features a wide seat for extra comfort that can also be adjusted into three different positions as your child grows from newborn to toddler. A removable head support pillow and lumbar pad provide added comfort for both you and your baby.

Washing it

The Flip is machine washable but only uses cold water only. You’ll have to hang it to dry and you may be out of luck when the weather is humid as it may take longer to dry. Do not bleach. Wipe clean with cloth or sponge between machine washings to keep your fabric looking its best over time. This carrier also has a warning that the fabric cannot be ironed.

Carrying positions:

As shown in the photo below, The Flip carrier has 4 carrying positions described below this photo showing the 4 positions (two facing in, 1 facing out and one back carry)

  • Facing In with narrow seat: You can carry your baby front-facing or Face In from when they are 8 pounds to 15 lbs on a narrow seat.
  • Facing in with a wide seat: You can carry your baby front-facing or Face In from when they are 15 pounds to the max of 32 lbs on a wide seat.
  • Facing out: You can carry your baby facing out from they can independently support their head up to the max recommended weight of 32 pounds. When facing out, I really like that it gives your baby an ergonomic M facing in position. This carrier is easy-to-strap and is equally easy to put the baby in. Make sure you set the width and strap your baby well by following instructions so they feel comfortable in it.
  • Back carry: You can carry your baby at the back when they are seated. While some babies feel uncomfortable being carried on the back initially, they’ll often get used to it after some time.

Pros and Cons

  • Inexpensive,
  • lightweight,
  • easy to put the baby in
  • Uncomfortable for baby and parent,
  • hard to use, difficult to clean
