The Beco Gemini is our most popular buckle carrier for newborns!  With four different carrying positions, you can use the Beco Gemini baby carrier from infancy (7 lbs) to toddler hood.  It can be used on the front facing in, front facing out, hip and back.   The headrest flips up or down to give baby head support or support a toddler’s back.

We recommend the Gemini for anyone looking for a buckle carrier for use with a newborn on up to 2 years old.  This carrier can support up to 35 lbs and can also carry children over 2, but it really shines when buying for younger children or when sharing between older and younger babies!

For those looking for a cooler carrier for hot/summer weather, check out the Gemini Cool!  It has mesh panels and moisture-wicking spf 50 fabric. This is the Gemini that we recommend for very hot weather babywearing!

    Ordered the Gemini after doing a good amount of research on different carriers and getting advice from a handful of moms and a postpartum doula. Really really happy with the choice. I have a short torso, and it fits me well and is very comfortable on. It has worked for my daughter since week four I roll up a receiving blanket and insert in into the seat so she is more frogged in her position for now, and I know it will grow with her because of the many different carrying options. It folds up easily, so I can take it with me when I go out in case she tires of the stroller. And I use it nearly every day around the house for those times when she wants to be held but I need a free hand to get things done. Also, great price and great support on Carry Me Away. Very happy with the service so far.

    We first tried the Beco Butterfly II, but my daughter did not like it. So I decided to try the Gemini, and we love it!!!! It fits my petite body, and its versatility is great. My daughter loves the hip carry.

    I love the Beco Gemini. It’s so easy to use since the straps cross at the back and buckle on the sides. It’s comfortable for both mom and baby to use. My DS has fallen asleep in the front-facing, rear-facing and side carry positions. Great carrier!

    I’ve been wearing my baby in the Gemini since she was 9 days, and it’s AWESOME. So easy to put on. Sometimes have to give the back buckle an extra squeeze to get a second click to be sure it’s secure. Distributes weight great, soft fabric, easy to adjust.

    I LOVE my Beco Gemini. Greatest attributes: straps can be crossed in the back,baby has head support, baby’s legs can hang free either facing forward or when facing in to your chest, baby’s legs are not spread far apart like the Ergo using the snaps in the front are great. Overall I find it much more comfortable than the Ergo. Downfalls: no hood this can easily be solved by either a hat or tying a thin linen like diaper over the top you can discreetly nurse this way too!, buckles take two hands to unsnap, and no pocket, but this could be a fun weekend project. I have two big boys and this carrier is perfect, no awkward infant inserts!

    I’ve tried EVERY carrier out there and the Beco Gemini has by far been my favorite. My baby only wants to face out while being carried so my go-to carrier had always been the Baby Bjorn, which killed my back and shoulders after about 15 minutes. The Gemini is so comfortable and easy for me to wear and my daughter falls asleep in such a relaxed position now. I can easily walk with her for over an hour without any pain or soreness like I had with the baby Bjorn. I haven’t tried it in the backpack position yet, but I’m sure it will be just as great.

    Carry me away is great to work with, I really felt they got baby wearing.
    The beco gemini is great . It has a higher weight limit of 35#, allows for a variety of carrying methods, and is super comfy. The weight is on your hips, not your shoulders or back, so I am able to wear this for an extended period of time. I love it and wish I got it sooner (instead of suffering through the bjorn).

    Bought the Gemini in Metro Black for my sister who is having a baby in the spring. The Gemini is one of my “must haves” for baby! I used mine daily with my daughter. Ordering from Carry Me Away was a dream! They had the best price on the Internet and shipping was super speedy. The extra notes and instruction included were a sweet touch that would be very appreciated by any new mama. Highly recommend the Gemini and Carry Me Away!

    This company has been great in helping us find the right baby carrier. They have been very understanding and helpful. We had to send the Tula carrier back due to our son’s dislike for facing inward. I emailed the company and they immediately responded and allowed me to send back my order. They even suggested other carriers that he might like better. We ended up with the beco gemeni because of all the position options. He still is not too fond of it, but we are hoping as he gets a little bigger, he might.

    I bought the Beco Gemini from Carry Me Away after completing the prescription service. I use my carrier primarily for walking, hiking, and for carrying my 7 month old son around the house while I do things like chores, cooking, or some light cleaning. We graduated from a Moby Wrap. He loves being worn and carried everywhere.

    Pros:
    1. Fast shipping and returns. Easy to exchange items.
    2. Both my partner and I can use the carrier.
    3. Easy to get on and off after using a few times; there is short learning curve in getting on and off, and tight enough.
    4. Front carry either facing you or face forward
    5. Back carry

    Cons:
    1. Sometimes the buckles do not clasp all the way shut. Each buckle (there are 3 for the carrier portion) has a trilock feature, and sometimes there is a very small portion, such as 1/4” inch, gap that needs to be pushed to “click” and “close”. In the beginning, we wore him a lot without noticing, now we inspect and carefully make sure they are closed.
    2. Engaging the neck support option is challenging with either one or using two hands. The buckles to lengthen and shorten the hood require two hands. Sometimes not always practical!
    3. No pockets in places that would make sense. I exchanged carriers specifically for a Beco (ordered the Sail color) with a pocket on the waistband. However, it is not a very useful pocket. Your baby’s bum will make it challenging to use the pocket, and it’s not practical to get in and out of quickly.
    4. Petite frames may find this carrier a bit loose at first. It took a few wears to really feel like it was tight enough. I still have to use two hands to tighten the sides.
    5. Not really easy to store. I wish it came with a hook or strap for hanging. Would make stowing overnight so much easier. As is, I leave it on a clump on the couch.

    After using (5+ times per week) for several weeks:
    This carrier is so much easier to get on and off than the wraps. The ease of on/off is fantastic when running errands in the car, or even stashing in the stroller. I use it daily. It’s easy enough to wear my babe, and then carry a backpack which I use as a diaper bag. In front carry, I find that this is comfortable for up to 3 miles hike with no major hills.

    Cute carrier I’ve only used it with my nephew who’s 30 pounds and it was very comfortable. Can’t wait to try it with my son in 6 weeks when he’s born. Fast shipping and I got free drool pads. Thank you

    This review is more about the company owner than the carrier- she was so helpful with letting my husband and I try on many different carriers until we settled on the Gemini. We really did/do like it but our little guy doesn’t care for it right now so we decided to return it but we’re hoping to try again down the road once he’s a little older. Also we’re not huge fans of the security clips on the buckles- a bit difficult to use but may have gotten easier with practice. This company has great customer service and we really appreciate all the help we received trying to find the right carrier!

    I purchased this product for friends who had just had twins. They had been given one Beco Gemini baby carrier and liked it so much that they wanted another. They were thrilled to receive the second one as now they can each carry a baby comfortably.
    The drool pads are very useful too, especially for teething!
    They received carrier very quickly after ordering. The whole process was very efficient.

    The Beco Gemini is my favorite baby carrier (I have tried several!) for its versatility (front-facing in/facing-out, back carry, end possible side-carry as well), ease-of-use, comfort, and style ;-D I now have two girls and have used my Beco for my first through about 1.5 or 2 years old (after which she preferred to walk anyway!), and now with my 9 month old, 21 pound-and-growing daughter. We virtually live in this carrier and never leave home without it! While I have used other carriers (including Moby wrap, Kozy Carrier, Tula) for different stages, the Beco goes the distance. I have recommended this carrier to numerous friends and interested passerbys, and recently purchased one for a friend for her soon-to-be-born baby boy. I say it is a mother’s must-have, and is the first gift I think of for my dear mama friends! The prints are lovely, the fabric holds up pretty well (we are going on 4.5 years of use, baby slim, multiple washes, and all is still in-tact!). The buckles are secure and easy to open and close by yourself. I especially appreciate the cross-back feature where the straps wrap-around and clip in on your sides. (Much preferred over the standard snap at the back of the neck with Ergo and Tula) I have even considered selling the Beco myself I like it so well! Laurel does a great job with this website and personalized customer service, so she is easy to recommend ;-D If you are considering a baby carrier for yourself or future-parents, I heartily recommend this one! Happy (comfortable) baby-wearing!! ;-D ~ Ashley North, Alaska

    (p.s. The only reason I don’t give this all 5 stars is because I think it is BEST for the front carry, with babies >30lbs. Back carry works, but not quite as comfortably as the front. But when babies are little and most likely to be held, the front carry works amazingly well in this!!)
