What is your favorite place to use a baby carrier?

Attention all Parents, Grandparents and anyone out there that uses a baby carrier, we want to hear from you. We want to know what is your favorite place to use a baby carrier?

Is it just around the house while doing the every day things? Is it while hiking, or going for walks? Here are some ideas from our customers.

 

“I just wanted to write to you to tell you how much I love my CuddlyWrap™!!! I actually work in a baby store and out of all the products we sell, the cuddlywrap is not only my favourite, but one that I’m very passionate about. I wear it at least 4 days a week and have been doing so since my baby was newborn…in fact, not even 2 weeks after having her, I was walking in the Relay for Life…a 12 hour walk-a-thon. I have tried so many different carriers out there and nothing matches in comfort and closeness that you get with a cuddly wrap. Nothing compares to the way it evenly distributes the weight so that I don’t end up with back pain (something I get with those other carriers out there). On days where I’m having problems getting stuff done, I pop her in the cuddlywrap and get it done. When I want to go for a walk, I find myself putting on the wrap, versus taking the stroller. I just love my wrap!!!

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been out and about and people comment on it, or ask how it works and there I am, in the middle of the mall food court, showing people how to put it on and putting my baby in and out to show how easy to use it is. People can tell how much I love it…it’s hard for me to not show how much I love it!!! Not only do I love it, but my baby girl Juli loves it too. She will be one this month, and she still loves being in it (facing me even!). It calms her down right away and eventually she puts her head down and falls asleep, and that, is just the best feeling in the world.

Thank you so much for making such a great product! I will continue telling people how great it is.

“Thank You for making a fabulous product. My husband and I love our kokopax and so does our 9 month old son. We use the backpack while making dinner, cleaning the house, picking berries, going for a walk…everything! The backpack is light, durable, comfortable, and cute. We’ve received many compliments on it.

Thanks for making our life with a baby a bit easier!”

Kimi

“The kokopax carrier has been fantastic during our travels in Asia, especially during a recent trip to the far corners of Bali where strollers are not practical at all. It’s easy to take along on a bus or in a cab in our home town of Hong Kong and is comfortable for 6’2″ dad, 5′ mom, and 25 pound baby!”

“The Belle Baby Carrier makes life possible.  Because of Belle, baby James is able to help me vacuum, clean the kitchen, finish Grad-school, and climb through lava tubes.

Thank you Belle!”

Direct Contact Carriers

Direct contact carriers give the baby the same feeling as being in the womb. This gives them the comfort of mom’s warmth, heartbeat and closeness that they’re use to. But it also gives them the security of viewing the rest of the world by still being close to mom, dad or even a grandparent.

Maybe your asking yourself, “Why is being close to me important? And how is it any different then just holding the baby?” Well the obvious answer would be because the carrier will give you free hands to do what you need to. And if you have other children that need your attention at the same time, those free hands come in handy.

Your baby is so familiar with being close to you after spending 9 months listening to your heartbeat, feeling your warmth around them like a cozy blanket and going everywhere with you its a big change for them to be in the world outside your womb. But that doesn’t mean the comforts they are use to have to go away so abruptly. With a direct contact carrier there is no material between you and your baby. They are right up next to you and still have a soft fabric on the other side of them.

The organic carrier features organic cotton and hemp blended fabrics with white contrast stitching. The inside liner is a 100% Organic cotton and hemp blended undyed, ultra-soft fleece in a natural off-white color.

The classic belle baby carrier is made from strong upholstery grade black microsuede fabric, accented with a breathable mesh panel. The inside liner is a soft polyester fabric.

So why else would you want to use the direct contact carrier by Belle Baby? It’s simple. Really that’s why its simple, easy to use by yourself. The three strap system can be learned in a matter of seconds with no fuss on getting it right. You have a waist belt that is padded for your comfort and supports the weight on your hips instead of making your shoulders do all the work. It is secured around your waist with a simple buckle that is pulled tight. Then you have the two crossover straps that hold your baby in a natural ergonomic position that supports the developing spine. This are simple crossed over the baby one at a time and buckled into nylon buckles that are the same materials found on high-end mountaineering backpacks.

With the head support the is detachable you can give you newborn babies head the support needed while they are developing the muscles needed to hold it on their own. Once strong enough to hold their own head, you can detach the head support and turn them around for a whole new world to see! They will love this.

PhD Not Necessary
Anne W. said, “I just wanted to share my thanks for such a wonderful product. I have tried two other baby carriers and were so frustrated with all of the fabric (baby sling) and misc snaps, buckles, and zippers. I felt like I needed a PhD in baby wearing to put the product on and situate the baby correctly. Within three minutes of opening the belle box I was carrying my 7 week old around the house. I love the simplicity!! And the fabric is lovely. It is so snuggly my little one rubs his cheek against the inner lining and goes right to sleep. What a great product!
Live & Learn – The Belle is Best
Andrea M. said, “I got my Belle Carrier and am SO glad I purchased it. Oh my gosh, it’s incredible! This is my third carrier and was a little nervous spending MORE money on ANOTHER carrier…but I’m glad I did. It is SO comfortable, it’s almost hard to believe. Compared to the carrier I’ve been using, it’s hard to believe they are even the same concept, it is such a MAJOR difference in comfort. I also have a larger carrier which I do like but that is more for hikes and longer excursions due to its bulk and the fact that the baby can’t face out. My daughter is almost 8 months so she really likes to see the world…and we have gone on numerous errands, water the garden daily, and she “helps” me with laundry and vacuuming. She loves it. Every time she sees me strap it around my waist she gets noticeably excited or calms down if she’s fussing.

I’ll be honest with you – if there was a place that I could have tried ALL carriers on I would have only purchased this one. Live and learn! Thanks for a great product – it makes me want to get another one! LOL!”

 

You can see that there are many wonderful benefits from using any kind of carrier but with the direct contact carrier you are close to your baby while still being able to do all the things you need to. Your baby will love the bundled feeling and you’ll enjoy using your carrier for a newborn and older for where ever you may go.

Giveaway Winner Update

Carissa won our Belle Baby Carrier last month, and she’s had plenty of chances to try it out with her little ones. It looks like the baby carrier is a hit! Here’s what she had to say:

(Remember you can still get 10 percent off the Belle Baby Carrier and other products until the end of the month with the code 10off511)

This picture is from my brother's graduation. I needed to haul both my kids into the building and then hike back to the car, but there was nowhere to store a stroller once I was in the building, so my baby carrier was perfect.

Where to begin…I LOVE this baby carrier!

My bruised legs are a thing of the past! The Belle Baby Carrier is about a million steps up from baby’s car seat and better than any other baby carrier I’ve used.

I have owned a baby wrap in the past, but it took a really long time to get my baby in and out. Her weight wasn’t distributed evenly which gave me a lot of back pain, so I never used it.  This baby carrier is completely different! Every piece that touches your body and your baby is very well padded and soft. It has mesh fabric to keep you and baby cool and the criss-cross straps relieve pressure on your back and shoulders. It reminds me a lot of how my baby’s weight is distributed when I’m pregnant, especially when she is facing me.

She has fallen asleep several times in this carrier and the extra attachment for head support is great for keeping her comfortable. It’s awesome for a sick, whiney baby and I think it would be a lifesaver for a mom with a colicky, fussy newborn.

It’s really easy to put on after the first time of adjusting the straps; I’m down to about 20 seconds. And the most important part, my little girl loves the Belle Baby Carrier! Whenever she sees me put in on she squeals! She loves having a bird’s eye view of the world and kicks her legs and laughs almost the whole time–so I think it must be pretty comfortable for her!

It frees up my hands to chase around my toddler and I don’t have to worry about my baby tipping when I bend over or lean to the side; she is completely secure.  My toddler loves that she gets to walk instead of ride in the stroller.

Some of my favorite places to take the Belle Baby Carrier are the park, church, and short trips to the store.  It’s great for those stores that have narrow aisles. Next time I fly I will definitely use my carrier instead of dealing with the stroller hassle. It’s perfect for me because I have two kids and need an extra hand, but I think moms of one will still put some serious miles on it because it’s so convenient and comfy.

I honestly can’t say enough good things about it.  Out of all the baby gadgets; jumpers, walkers, strollers, high chairs, swings, this is probably my very favorite.  In my baby’s mind, it’s probably second only to her binky!

Thanks again!
Carissa

So without further ado, the random number generator has spoken. And the winner is comment number 19 …

Carissa who said, “Boy do I need one of these! I’ve got a 20 month old and a 7 month old (that’s right–13 months). My husband is deployed to Iraq and getting to and from church is a disaster. The little one is too heavy for her carseat so I come home each week with black, blue, and purple shins from it banging against my legs while I help the older one walk/carry her to nursery. Don’t get me started on Walmart trips and other excursions! :) I would LOVE to be able to put the baby in a carrier and not have to worry about her falling out or tipping while I chase around big sister, and I even might show my non-bruised white legs off in shorts this summer!”

Congratulations, Carissa! It sounds like you will put the baby carrier to great use. 🙂 Look for an e-mail from us requesting your shipping information.

We hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend. Look for more giveaways in the future!
