Beco Gemini update

Melissa wants to know when the Beco Gemini is coming, and Laura wants to know how it’s different from the Beco Butterfly II, so here a few answers!

Since PAXbaby tried on the Gemini in September, there have been changes made to the carrier especially pertaining to safety.  We can tell you the differences between the Gemini and the Butterfly, but please keep in mind that things may have been updated and will be different on the final version.

While the Beco Butterfly straps are threaded through buckles under the arms, the Gemini has buckles that easily unclip and re-fasten across the back in an X pattern giving more options for front carries and better support for mama’s back.  The body of the Gemini is more narrow than the Butterfly and has a contoured thick headrest similar to the popular Bjorn.  The new carrier is geared more towards accommodating smaller babies and may not feature an internal harness or seat like the Butterfly I  and II have.

For die-hard Beco fans like myself, the wait is hard, but I know that when the Gemini is finally released, it will be a superb carrier with that special Beco flair that we all love and adore!  Let’s all wait as patiently as we can so that Beco can concentrate on perfecting the Gemini for us.  As soon as we know anything new, we will be sure to let you know!

  1. I was just wondering when the new beco is going to be released… I am looking into getting one but trying to hold off until the gemini is out for sale…

  2. We are as excited as you are about the new Beco Gemini, but unfortunately, there hasn’t been a release date set yet… Stay tuned!

  3. We won’t know the final dimensions until Beco releases the final Gemini model! The Gemini version that we tried on in September did have a nice high back, but we’ll all have to wait and see how the Gemini measures up once it is ready to buy! Can’t wait!

  4. Will the price be a much higher than the Butterfly? I was just about to buy a Butterfly but will wait if the price is close. Thank you!

  5. We actually haven’t been told anything about pricing for the new Gemini, but we would hope that it would be in the same average price range as the Butterfly II.
