Beco 8 - Rental Carrier


The Beco 8 is a fab next step option and our most popular hire!  Designed to grow with your family, it works from babies first weeks all the way through to 2 or even 3 years old and offers 4 different carrying positions – front inward facing, front outward facing, hip and back carry.  It's uniquely shaped lumbar support and wide waistband often proves a winner with those with lower back pain.  But it doesn't fit everyone so it can be well worth hiring to properly road test and see how this carrier works for you before you invest.

  • Weight tested from 3.2 kg (7 lb) to 20 kg (45 lb)
  • Realistically fits babies all the way from just a couple of weeks old to 2.5 or even 3 years of age.
  • Offers 4 carrying positions (Front inward, Front Outward, Hip and Back)
  • Includes a booster cushion for smaller newborns or those not ready to open their legs
  • Panel adjusts in both width and height so will grow with baby all the way to toddlerhood
  • Firmly padded waistband and removable lumbar pad offers secure comfort and excellent weight distribution
  • Wide softly padded straps can be worn crossed or rucksack style across parents back
  • Straps adjust to accomodate a very wide range of parent shapes and sizes, men and women alike.  Can be a bit too bulky for very petite frames but works brilliantly on larger and plus sized frames.

All in all the Beco 8 is a great choice for anyone looking for a long lasting, multipositioned carrier.  It similar too the Ergobaby Omni Breeze and Tula Explore but offers a different fit and feel to these, and is significantly cheaper so worth exploring along side these options or as a cheaper alternative.  Or if you are looking for a lighter weight, more streamlined carrier, check out the Beco 8's little brother the Beco Gemini and see my video comparision of the Beco 8 and the Beco Gemini here.

Please note that slings and carriers are extremely safe when used properly, however misuse can cause injury to yourself or your child. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are using the sling correctly and that you and your child are safe at all times when using the sling. If you are at all worried or concerned at all please do get in touch and ask for help. Sheen Slings cannot be held responsible for any accident that results in injury or death whilst the sling is in your care.

You remain responsible for the sling or carrier for the duration of your hire. Loss or damaged will be charged at cost of replacement so please look after the carrier and treat it as you would something of your own. That said, normal wear and tear is expected so please do feel able to use it fully and there is no need to wash before sending it back as I rewash everything on return.

If you need to wash, this carrier can be machine washed at 30 degrees with a liquid detergent, and then left to dry overnight. However, in most cases spot cleaning with a soft damp cloth works wonders and saves you needing to wash the whole carrier.
