Pushchair maker Mountain Buggy has recently released its first ‘multi-functional’ baby carrier that can be worn from birth to – if you can carry them – a whopping 48 month old child or up to a weight of 20kg (that’s some heavy lifting).
The Juno carrier is marketed as a ‘hands-free, hands through connection.’ This means it provides full support for your little one, so you won’t need to worry about having to prop up, as it does this for you.
A really nice feature to this is that it has a compartment at the back of the carrier so you can pop your hands in and cuddle them closer with little effort.
A lot of research has gone into this product, the brand who are known for their hugely-popular all-terrain strollers, have developed the carrier with the help of medical experts, parents – and most importantly – children.
Now here’s the sciencey bit – the carrier has four medically proved wearing positions; front face in, front face out, hip carrying mode and back carrying made.
All positions follow the T.I.C.K.S rules and allow for safe, ergonomic baby carrying.
Other great features are, an infant insert, two hidden storage pockets, a protective hood and teething pads that attach to the shoulder straps.
And for added comfort for babies the carrier has an adjustable seat and length adjustable newborn insert, so it should grow as quickly as they do but still keep them nice and snug.
Price-wise the carrier has gone on sale for £135, which is a lot of money, in fact it’s more expensive than the BabyBjorn One carrier. Saying that, it is a price that’s comparable to the Stokke My Carrier and the Ergo Baby 360 Bundle Of Joy carrier. so not widely expensive in terms of market price, just not the cheapest. We can’t put a price on comfort and safety when it comes to carrying out babies, can we?
