I "heart" Babyhawk
on April 28, 2011
I admit it...I am a babywearer. I have had so many great experiences wearing my babies and have used a variety of slings and carriers. My latest fave is my Mei Tai carrier from BabyHawk. I have been using it for about six months and I can't remember life without it.
Baby carriers seem to be a personal "thing." Either you like it or you don't. Well, I LOVE my BabyHawk and here is why.
-With three kids, ages 4, 2, and 9 months, I am truly outnumbered in many ways. Just having the ability to "hold" three kids when I only have two hands is a miracle. Carrying my baby hands free makes this possible.
-It is custom fit every time you put it on. I have lost 50 pounds (you read that right) in the past 9 months and the BabyHawk has fit at every stage.
-The BabyHawk is SO comfortable. No matter if you are wearing your baby on your front or back, the weight is distributed quite well. I have experienced no back or neck pain even when wearing it for long periods of time.
-I get a lot of compliments. Of course, many of the compliments are about my cute little baby, but people love the fabric. It is pretty cool, beautiful and stylish...if I do say so myself.
-There are about a "bazillion" color and fabric choices. I easily found something to fit my style. They have something for everyone's taste.
-With its long straps it can seem overwhelming, but actually it is REALLY easy to use.
-It is one of my baby's favorite places to nap and I love having him so close.
-My baby is getting a "hug" even my arms aren't wrapped around him.
-I can wear it over my jacket without any adjustments (like buckles and tightening of straps).
-When I am not using it, it rolls up compact enough to fit in my diaper bag.
-It "wears" really well. I have seen no wear after many trips to the beach, park, around town and associated washings.
Actually, the list goes on and on. I could probably write a dissertation on how great it is. One really cool thing about the BabyHawk is, if you don't find an insert fabric you like on their site (which there are SO many to choose from with endless color combinations) you can send in your own! They will custom make you one with your personal fabric. I am so excited about this for my next purchase.
