    This is my first Tula but not my first carrier. I love the idea of not having to carry around and store an infant insert. I wore it for the first time with my 9 pound baby all day at Disneyland. He slept all day and I had my hands free to wrangle my toddler. The FTG is very comfortable and the snaps for changing the size is very easy. I’m so happy I waited for this carrier to come out instead of having to buy a standard and a toddler carrier for my 2 kids.

    I adore this carrier. I have a chunky 10w old. I’m not a fan of the infant insert required in other Tula carriers. So this was a great solution.
    The fabric is softer than I expected. The colors are beautiful with perfect shades of pink.
    I ordered on release day and it shipped same day, arrived in 2 days USPS priority. Very happy.

    I love this carrier! I have a 3 month old and hate the insert so we have been using a ring sling. It’s so comfortable and easy to put on, no more adjusting my sling for 5 minutes in the parking lot! I also love that I can take one carrier with me and have the option to wear my baby or my 2.5 year old. The shipping was very fast and the packaging was gorgeous! Will definitely be ordering from here again!

    I absolutely love this carrier. I have an ergo baby and it was a really big hassle to use the infant insert. I’ve use this with my eight week old, and I’ve also used it with my 2 1/2 year-old on my back. I love the print it’s very stylish and I love that the Cover on the top can snap off. Shipping was fast and convenient and I love the free products that I received with my order.

    I bought this for my newborn because she hates the insert for our regular Tula, and boy this thing was love at first wear, it is so convenient to have because we have 2 children (newborn and a 2 year old) and both for PERFECTLY into the FTG. Purchased on the layaway program which made it so much easier to get.

    I wore my ergo performance for 5 years. Used it very well, but was always bothered by the infant insert, as it’s so bulky, and adds extra warmth, totally unnecessary where I live in a somewhat tropical climate. Also, as the baby grew too big for the insert, but was too short and small to be without it, there were those few uncomfortable in between months. I’m so glad I waited to replace it with the Tula Free to grow! It’s adjustable from newborn to toddler with 3 settings, no insert necessary! The material is so soft and comfortable, not too hot, nice and compact, not bulky. very simple and easy to use. I’m just enjoying it so much and feeling very pretty with the blossom design. It’s dark so it doesn’t show dirt overall as much, but the lighter colored blossoms take away the feeling of it being too dark. Shoulders are well padded, and I like the thicker waistband. The only non essential aspect I am missing is a more securely closing pocket.. I don’t like the small, loose pocket, I miss having an easy place to put wallet, keys, phone, tissues etc., but that is not really a downside of the carrier as a baby carrier, only as a pocketbook. Possibly there is also less wiggling room for the baby, but that means it is more supportive than the ergo, where my baby would fall asleep and lean over very far to the side. Altogether, its a wonderful, comfortable, versatile, beautiful carrier and I’m always excited to put it on.

    The Tula is amazing, it works great with little babies and my now almost 8 month old. Laurel is great to work with and shipped in great time. Love this shop!

    The Tula FTG has been such a blessing! I had tried several other buckle and wrap carriers and this is the best of both worlds… soft and fully adjustable to your body (and the baby’s) but structured enough that there is good back support. I feel so much more able to carry my 3 month-old as I do things around the house and take him places without the stroller now. I highly recommend getting your carrier “prescription” before choosing a carrier– Laurel was such a great help in making the right decision! Between the great service and excellent product, I felt this was money very well spent. Thank you, Laurel!

    This is my first carrier for my big baby girl and we were able to find the perfect fit on the first try with the FTG. The manual explains the adjustments in great detail and makes it very simple for even a new user. Very soft carrier and forms to us both easily. Carry Me Away had VERY fast shipping, I was blown away by how quickly it arrived and packaged with such care! Money well spent and will definitely come to Laurel with any future questions or baby carrying needs!

    I love the idea of this, but so far my baby is not a fan. I am not certain, but I might be using it wrong or her legs are too short? The “M” that her legs are supposed to form isn’t a natural position for her and I believe it makes her uncomfortable. I’m not giving up and how as she grows, it will become easier.

  12. Julie (verified owner)

    I ordered the FTG for my 3 month old little guy. I love the fabric and the colors but I just couldn’t seem to get a good fit. The insides of his knees rubbed against the waistband and got red rub marks. I think it happened because the extra fabric pushed the waistband out from my body.
    That being said Laurel was amazing about helping me figure out an exchange and the customer service is just awesome so I don’t regret ordering from here at all.

    I just got my hide and see ftg in the mail yesterday! The carrier is beautiful and shipped fast but the way it was packaged stood out the most! I got a hand written thank you note from Laurel and the tula box was wrapped in a piece of tissue paper! Great personal touch!!
