The brand new soft structured carrier by Moby is here! If you’ve been looking at ergonomic carriers, you’ve probably heard of Moby who are famous the world over for their popular stretchywraps. While stretchywraps are perfect for carrying newborn babies up to around 6 months of age, they don’t offer as much support as your baby gets bigger. So Moby have been working hard designing their new soft structured carrier the Moby Comfort which is suitable for babies up to 44lb/20kg and can be used on the front or back, we think it looks great!
Key Features of the Moby Comfort baby and toddler carrier
- Suitable from 8-44lbs / 3.5-20Kg
- Integrated infant seat for young babies
- Adjustable seat width offering knee to knee support from baby to toddler size
- Front, hip and back carrying positions
- Straps can be worn like a rucksack or in an X formation across the back
If you would like to WIN on of these Moby Comfort Carriers, head over to our facebook page and get your entry in to us by Midnight on Tuesday the 14th July.
This week Cecilia reviews the Tula baby carrier.. read Cecilia’s review below….
When pregnant with baby number 3 I had a lovely lady who runs a sling library showed me a few types of slings. I fell in love with a stretchy wrap and a few woven wraps. However I politely declined any Information on buckle carriers as I thought I was a ‘wrap sort of girl’.
Fast forward a few months, baby was here and growing, when the time came to retire the stretchy wrap, I found it was a little time consuming to wrap with a woven then completely unwrap to feed
Then wrap up again
Then unwrap for a nappy change
Then wrap up again
Having another 2 very active children to run after I decided I needed something more practical in addition to the woven wraps, that is when the idea of a buckle carrier came to my mind. I asked a few friends to try on their few different types of buckle carriers and the Tula stood out by a long way for its comfort and practicality.
Very easy to put on, the Tula has two buckles to be fastened and that’s it, one shoulder buckle and one waist one, no complicated crossing over straps to manoeuvre from one side to the other, it really is straightforward.
The thick padding is lush, it has fully padded waist straps as well as fully padded shoulder straps making the Tula super comfortable on your back and shoulders.
Baby feels almost weightless I feel like I am carrying a little feather around not a baby, yet Isla feels very close and secure.
It is hand made from 100% cotton, Isla has sensitive skin especially on her neck and face so material is important.
It is comfortable under my arms, I can either use it very snuggly under the arm or I can adjust the straps so that it doesn’t dig on my breasts when they are full (of milk).
Using a ‘woven wrap‘ to carry babies and toddlers is becoming increasingly popular here in the UK. They may take a little getting used to, learning to tie a woven wrap can seem daunting to begin with but parents soon get the hang of it! Babies can be carried in a wrap from birth, and the woven fabric offers great support and and the most ergonomic way of carrying for both baby and the wearer.
We’ve just started stocking the Babylonia BBSlen here at Babi Pur, we love the ethics behind the brand and we just couldn’t resist the lovely bright colours and designs! We asked Charlize who’s been wearing her baby for nearly a year to try out the BBSlen and let us know what she thought if it. Read Charlize’s review below…
