The Catbird Baby carrier is based on a traditional Chinese carrier known as a mei tai. This design provides comfort for baby and wearer by bringing the baby's legs up into a seated position (rather than hanging straight down) and employing the wearer's waist and hips to bear some of baby's weight. The padded shoulder straps distribute weight evenly across the back and both shoulders. Discreet breastfeeding is also a breeze in a Catbird Baby carrier. Fabrics are beautiful and eye-catching; we want your baby carrier to be a fashion statement and not just a utilitarian parenting tool.New and improved models are now in stock!
The pikkolo carrier is a unique blend of mei tai and buckle carrier that features comfortable but slim memory foam straps, enables you to do an ergonomic front facing out carry, can be used from birth without a separate insert, and still works great for carrying toddlers up to 40 lbs.! Features attached, stowable hood, optional chest strap for use with back carrying, and instructional booklet. 100% brushed cotton (exclusive of trim).
Pikkolo's unstructured waist makes it possible to cinch the carrier narrower to enable small babies to ride legs-out or older infants to face forward comfortably. All buckles adjust both ways for an optimal fit. Use pikkolo:
* front facing in or out
* on your hip
* on your back
* with babies and toddlers 8 lbs. up to 40 lbs.
* with your detachable flat sleeping hood (included with purchase) when your little one's head gets floppy
