Action Baby Carriers is a family run business out of Detroit, Michigan. Andrea and Curtis are dedicated to producing a high quality, comfortable, and affordable carrier for families everywhere! These are soft structured carriers (also called SSC and buckle carriers) and are the easiest to use in my opinion. I recently was given the Standard “Elle” ABC to try out for review.
I was so shocked with the comfort level! It was thin, but padded in all the right spots. The shoulders were super comfortable. Once buckled and adjusted, I still had plenty of room left! That is a big deal for me since I am plus sized. Finding a carrier that fits well is important to me. I got the standard sized carrier because Maxine loves to ride arms out. She could still tuck her arms in if she wanted to though. I loved how this carrier molded to her body. It looked just like how my woven wraps mold to her body. Maxine is 25ish lbs and 32 inches tall. She can fit the toddler carrier as well.
The carrier offers the option of crossing the straps across your front or back when wearing. I personally did not like the straps crossed because it dug into my muffin top (lol), but it offers a ton more support that way! The pattern went all the way to the top of the hood, so when you have it buckled, it is one continuous pattern.
At $98 for standard and $114 for toddler, these carriers are a great budget/mid priced carrier. The ABC folds down small and can fit in your diaper bag.The carrier doesn’t take up much space.
Even my sister loved it!
This carrier is great for beginners as well as advanced wearers! It is one of my most used carriers.
