a cleverly compact child carrier {Bitybean Carrier} + Giveaway

I have recently discovered a new child carrier that has quickly become a favorite of mine. I never thought that would be a possibility, I’ve tried lots of carriers and have always been attached to one certain brand but Bitybean has changed all that for me. Bitybean’s carriers are lightweight, compact and remarkably comfortable.

There are certain expectations that I have when it comes to a carrier. The most important being comfort. Not just comfort for me but for the child as well. Another major factor when it comes to choosing the perfect baby carrier is that I can use it on long walks and hikes with a child that is bigger and heavier than an infant. There are tons of carriers out there that can do the job with a little one but not many that provide exceptional comfort when it comes to your child who is almost 2 and over 25 lbs. The Bitybean carrier met all those expectations.                                                                    BittyBean_Hike_2

When I first received the Bitybean carrier I was skeptical. How can something so lightweight and non plush keep me and my child comfortable? The material is of a nylon and polyester mix, so there is no extra padding. After hiking with my daughter in the carrier, I was amazed that not only was it completely comfortable carrying her for the duration of the hike but I also wasn’t hot. The material kept both of us completely cool on a hot summer afternoon hike. I have to say, that doesn’t happen often with other baby carriers. I run hot and so does my toddler daughter. Together we are like an inferno and usually both end up disgustingly sweaty (I know, gross).

I don’t often need to use a carrier since my daughter is walking or as she likes to say “I run” and mainly use it for hiking or when we are in crowded places. The Bitybean carrier compacts down to the size of a child’s water bottle and only weighs 8 oz. It’s the perfect size to throw into your diaper bag or backpack and simple to pull out when needed. I love having the option to have it tucked away just in case my daughter gets tired of walking. It’s so much better than having to lug around a larger carrier.

The Bitybean carrier is recommended for children 3 months to approximately 3 years old. It should only be worn with children weighing between 8 and 40 lbs. Children less than 6 months of age should be carried in the front carry position, where they face the carrier. Once your child is able to hold their head up on their own and sit unassisted you can then wear the child on your back. Bittybean should never be used to carry your child front facing out. The Bitybean carrier is designed for both men and woman and can we be worn on wide range of sizes, small petite woman up to XL men.

Designed and developed in Vermont this awesome carrier comes in four colors; carrot orange, lime green, sand grey and sky blue. The BittyBean carrier is easy to clean; you can either spot clean it or throw in the washing machine in cold water on a gentle cycle. Purchase your own carrier here for $54.95 and stay in the know by following them on Twitter and Facebook.

Bitybean has generously offered to give away one carrier to a lucky reader! Enter Below!
