ABOUT HIPSTER™ PLUS 3D BABY CARRIER

How is HIPSTER™ PLUS the smart baby carrier?

HIPSTER™ PLUS is ergonomically designed to minimize the cause of back pain when holding a baby. We tend to hold babies by resting him/her on the side of our hips causing us to twist our spine. With HIPSTER™ PLUS your baby’s weight is distributed evenly on the seat and not your hips, which allows you to hold your baby standing straight up, protecting your back.

What makes HIPSTER™ PLUS different from other carriers?

MULTIPLE USES FOR EVERY OCCASION: With HIPSTER™ PLUS, you will get to enjoy all the benefits of a hip seat, structure carrier AND a ring sling!

One carrier, 9 different uses.

  • SEAT BASE ONLY: This set up allows your little one to stay close to you without feeling enclosed in (like a traditional carrier) but still able to explore surroundings. It’s perfect for taking care of house chores at home, when your baby insists on being carried, when you’re out at a friend’s house (where you don’t feel comfortable leaving your baby alone on the floor), or places that are not stroller-friendly like museums, narrow shopping aisles, or smaller restaurants.
  • DOUBLE SHOULDER CARRIER: This set up transforms HIPSTER™ PLUS into a traditional structured carrier, perfect for the times you need to be completely HANDSFREE. The double shoulder straps go over each shoulder, which reduces back strain. In this setup, you can also discreetly nurse your baby when out in public.
  • SINGLE SHOULDER CARRIER: This set up allows you to use HIPSTER™ PLUS like a ring sling, where you can position your baby on your side and also have both hands free.
  • DUAL LAYER OPTION FOR EXTRA WARMTH/ COOLING: HIPSTER™ PLUS carrier top incorporates a double layer to protect and keep your baby warm and cozy on colder days, but is removable for hot summer days. The mesh material underneath keeps your baby cool so that s/he can stay in the carrier longer, more comfortably.

    EXTRA STORAGE: When the top layer is zipped up, it provides extra protection from the cold and also acts as a small storage area for a diaper, or any other essential items. We also added a pocket on the belt for phones, keys and money for easy access.

    SIMPLICITY: No confusing, long straps or intricate systems. HIPSTER™ PLUS is designed for easy on/off, for parents who do not have the time to read pages and pages of manuals to learn how to use the product!

     

    What is the recommend age to use HIPSTER™ PLUS?

    HIPSTER™ PLUS is suitable for children ages 3 months to 3 years old. (NOTE: Age range may vary for each baby, starting from when your baby has developed proper back support to hold up his/her neck to a maximum of 20kg.)

    What is the maximum weight for HIPSTER™ PLUS?

    HIPSTER™ PLUS  is suitable for children weighing up to 44lbs (20kg).

    Will my baby's legs hang or dangle when using the HIPSTER™ PLUS?

    The seat base is intentionally built wide enough so that your baby’s hips rest in a healthy position, where his/ her legs are lifted and supported at hip level and not hanging or dangling.
