My thoughts on Apruva's Baby Carrier and why I chose it over popular branded onesSunday, November 01, 2015
When I was still pregnant with Henri, I really added a baby carrier on my list. I thought they were extremely convenient, plus at first, I didn't plan on hiring a yaya so I thought that a carrier was a must. But somewhere between giving birth and breastfeeding, I forgot about buying one, until months later when we were finally able to bring Henri around, I thought, what better time to buy a carrier.
Truth be told, I postponed buying one because I thought that they were just ridiculously and stupidly expensive for something that you won't even use all the time -an unnecessary purchase actually that you only get to use on weekends (or sometimes not even then), so I kept putting it off until I decided "ok I'll just look", because it's actually nice to have one around just in case.
But buying one that costs more than a kidney was out of the question, incase we couldn't make the most out of it. So anyway, I finally bought our first carrier on a whim when we were buying Henri's Play Yard at the Landmark, and it's a freakin' steal!

While I was waiting for Raul to pick me up with the car, I wandered over to the carrier section and looked around for a good carrier that wasn't going to burn a whole in my wallet. The only brands I knew were Chicco and , which were a little over our budget. Did you know that baby carriers now (popular branded ones) range from PhP 3,500 to PhP 15,000? If I did want to piss my money away I would have gone with the PhP 4,000++ but I knew I wouldn't be using it a lot anyway knowing that we had a stroller, plus a yaya to help me with Henri when we were out of the house.
That's when I saw APRUVA Baby Carrier. A brand that was foreign to me, but had good quality packaging -yes. I judge by the packaging sometimes.
You can see from the print quality of the box too that it's not flimsy and it does not look cheap. Before seeing the price tag, to be honest, I thought this brand was one of the more expensive ones.
The caution printed on the box are pretty standard and are simple and straight forward too. So if something does happen to you baby while using this carrier then you didn't read the instructions well.
It's not uncomfortable to wear because the material used it sturdy but at the same time soft so your skin won't get scratched when you rub against the material. The locks and the fasteners are all made with heavy duty plastic, as well at the nylon straps. I think it's not bad for the price and you can use it over and over again.
Every since I had Henri and already thinking about his education, I had to go for cheaper alternatives but where the quality does not suffer. Aside from the package not containing instruction and other information about the brand or the product, I would rate this carrier a 4 star.
MY OVERALL RATING: ★★★★☆
