We are so excited to announce that we are now carrying a new soft-structured baby carrier (see what I did there?), the Happy Baby Carrier! The Happy Baby Carrier is cute, stylish, and comfortable so you can "keep your baby close and comfortable without sacrificing your personal style." If you have ever found yourself losing the I-want-to-hold-my-baby-but-I-really-need-to-use-both-hands battle, the Happy Baby Carrier is for you!
When my son was a newborn, I often found myself losing this very battle. I didn't buy a baby carrier or a wrap before he was born, so in those first few weeks after he was born, I researched (I wish this Baby Carrier Buying Guide had existed back then!) and bought a wrap and a baby carrier. Unfortunately, I found that neither of these options was the perfect fit for us. I loved using the wrap when he was a tiny newborn, but the learning curve was pretty steep as I learned to wrap my body with what felt like yards and yards and yards of fabric, all while my baby lay nearby crying for me to pick him up. Talk about a high-stress learning environment! And, as he continued to grow and to become more alert, I started using our baby carrier more often. But there was only one problem. I hated it. It was so uncomfortable, and I couldn't ever seem to get it adjusted just right for either of us. And if I ever wanted to use either of them outside the house, I usually packed them in a separate bag because they took up so much space in my diaper bag.
If you have felt the same way about your baby carrier or wrap, you might want to check out the Happy Baby Carrier! It's the perfect solution for moms and dads who are searching for the comfort of a wrap and the simplicity of a baby carrier. It is 30 to 50 percent lighter than most soft-structured baby carriers on the market, and folds up to fit in a diaper bag. So you can keep it in your diaper bag, and make sure you have it with you when you need it! And when you're on-the-go and need to be completely hands-free, you can use the purse holders on each shoulder to secure your purse. Or, if you want to leave your purse or diaper bag at home, a hidden pocket carries a sun cover and has room for extra storage, so you can carry just a few essentials with you.
The Happy Baby Carrier is made for comfort. It is fully adjustable to ensure a perfect fit for everyone, and it has wide shoulder straps and special high-impact foam for ultimate comfort. It can also be comfortably worn by moms who are recovering from a C-section. It is made in the USA with linen and linen blend fabrics that are lightweight and breathable (ideal for hot weather) and gets softer with use. And they use safe non-toxic dyes to create three gorgeous colors—Charcoal, Marigold, and Sage.
One thing all moms and dads are worried about is the health and safety of their child, especially those tiny, fragile little newborns! Am I right? With the Happy Baby Carrier, you can rest assured knowing that it ergonomically supports babies from newborn to 45 pounds. And the best part is you don't need to purchase an infant insert, saving you space and money—something all new moms and dads need! To make sure your baby is safe and to ensure optimal comfort for your baby and for you, make sure to check out the instruction booklet for safety tips and to learn how to wear your Happy Baby Carrier. In this booklet, you'll find instructions for front carry, back carry, and newborn carry. You'll also find tips for keeping your baby safe! Most importantly, make sure you can see your baby's face at all times, that your baby is positioned correctly, and that all buckles and straps are secure before each use.
