We have had several carriers come in recently to be added to the library catalogue.
In anticipation of good weather, we have added a Boba Air to the Calin Bleu gauze wrap. The Boba Air is a tiny, ultra light weight soft structured carrier for children 15-45lb.
Perfect for travelling, it is compact, no bigger than a small pencilcase, folds away inside itself and weighs just over 300g. Just clip it on your bag or waistband and use it when needed. Ingenious!
Another lightweight soft structured carrier is on the way in the form of the Ergo Sport – to add to the Original and Performance lines we already have. The Ergo Sport is an airy carrier with a back vent to keep parent and baby cool. From 4-5 months up to 45lb, the Ergo Sport features all the comfort and user friendliness of an Original Ergo with a slightly different, more extendable fit and detachable hood.
We have recently seen some parents who struggle with knots and buckles in the library, for many reasons, and my research led me to the Marsupi Plus. Made by the manufacturer of the Manduca, the Marsupi Plus is a mei tai like carrier which fastens solely with velcro, allowing for ease of use for everyone. Just smooth – and go. Suitable for use from birth and tested to 45lb, the hood is fastened with poppers.
To add to the mei tai collection, by popular demand, the library thanks Love to be Natural for helping us to add a Girasol Mysol. This clever design and beautiful fabric is fully adjustable and reversible – two carriers in one. With width and height adjustments, and useful sleep hood, the Girasol Mysol wrap conversion mei tai fits from newborn to around 2 years, front or back.
The Caboo carrier by Close Parent is always a popular choice in the library, and to reflect that we have just added our fifth example. This one is bright red, and a lovely choice for a small baby carried on the front. Soft and easy to use, the Caboo from Close Parent is a wonderful starter carrier.
The Caboo has also started to make the Caboo DX, a more structured version of the stretchy Caboo. Fastening with buckles and doing away with the long fabric ties, the Caboo DX works similarly but gives a different look and feel for your small baby.
This carrier has been part of the collection awhile now but went straight out on rental the day it arrived, and has barely touched base since! Another example of the ever-popular Manduca for the library, this one in classic black. Suitable from birth to 46lb, the Manduca is a clever carrier with adjustable straps, hidden sleep hood, lengthening body, and internal seat for new babies.
