How does hip seat baby carriers offer more comfort for the parent compared to standard soft structured carriers and wraps?
The hip seat makes all the difference because it absorbs the baby's weight so there's less strain on parent's shoulder and the wide waist belt provides extra lumbar support to alleviate any back pain.
How does the hip seat ensure correct hip positioning?
The hip seat ensures the baby's hips are in the correct “M position” by keeping the thighs supported at hip level so the thigh bone stays inside the hip socket.
Is the HIPSTER™ Smart breathable?
HIPSTER™ Smart carrier has a removable panel that unzips to cool off your baby.
How are the double shoulders attached to the hip seat?
The double shoulders are attached to the hip seat via a zipper and two buckles for extra safety.
Do I need an infant insert?
Infant insert is only used with the double shoulder attachments. We recommend using an infant insert until the baby has strong head and neck support which is usually around 4 months old.
How big is the storage under the hip seat?
You can fit 14 diapers (pampers size 2).
How do I wash this carrier?
Machine wash with cold water in a gentle cycle. Lay flat to air dry, do not tumble dry. For light cleaning, simply wipe clean with a damp towel.
I'm so happy with this amazing carrier! I love the color, the design and the features it has you can storage whatever you need for your baby and your cellphone ! I'm pretty sure that my baby will love and enjoy it as much I have already done!!
I had read lots of positive things about this new hip carrier that was out and was super curious about it. I have severe arthritis and degeneration in my hips so anything to help when carrying my baby is a plus. This carrier is it!! It seems to take so much weight off my hips and lower back so I can actually walk/carry long distances. That alone makes me recommend it to all my mommy friends. But then you add in all the bells and whistles. I never have to take a diaper bag anymore thanks to all the storage and pockets, which is a huge thing for me with 4 kids. I use it not only for my 7month old, but for my toddlers as well. Most carriers you have to buy a bigger size for toddlers. Definitely the most practical carrier I've ever owned!
This is the most comfortable and genius design in carrier concept. The fully supported hip seat prevents baby from popping out of the seat and takes almost all the weight off my bad back/hips. The mesh panel is perfect since this summer has been horrible and we are both hot natured.
This carrier has been essential for us. We've used other carriers, at least 3-4, and this one has by far been the best. All of the extra accessories that it has is a bonus too. The cell phone pocket, card holder, key bungee cord, and of course the detachable hip seat has been a life saver for me with multiple kids. And it holds so much! You really won't regret buying this carrier. It's easy on my back and my husband loves it too. And my 3.5 year always asks to be carried around the house. Haha
The best carrier for those with back problems and need some extra support. Love all the details they've thought of, too. The front pack and phone holder means I can go completely hands free. I take this in lieu of the stroller. Would recommend to every parent!
