Beco Butterfly II Has Arrived

26 Sep

My office looks like I’m trying to build the Great Wall of China out of the new and improved Beco Butterfly II baby carrier boxes! I’ve only had a short time to play with it, but I’m very happy with the design changes that Beco has made. The Beco Baby Carrier retains its unique inner harness that helps take the fear factor out of doing back carries and enables one person to hand baby and carrier off to another, but incorporates some updates that make the Beco Butterfly even more functional:

  • The sleeping hood design is greatly improved. It snaps on, rather than threading on with nylon webbing. Also, it’s contoured rather than flat, and should fit a snoozing baby’s head much better.
  • There are two more inches of padding in the shoulder straps. This is a suggestion I (and others, I’m sure) had made to Beco to improve the fit for bigger people. I’m glad they listened!
  • The infant insert is now removable. So if you’re wearing the Beco Baby Carrier with a bigger baby, you can just take out the infant insert and stash it somewhere safe.
  • This isn’t really a functional issue, but the carrier is now made in the USA! Which is important to many consumers.

I’ve got the Beco Butterfly 2 available in Metro Black, Trinity, Sara, and Avery (all on black body/straps) and Espresso Brown, River, Carnival, and Jacob (all on espresso brown straps).

If you’ve got any questions about whether the Beco Butterfly II is the right buckle carrier for you, please ask away! You can comment here or email me at jane@quirkybaby.com

Oh and p.s. — if you’re looking for a toy carrier for your child or someone else’s, you’ve got to check out the Beco Mini — it’s adorable!

Endangered Beco Butterflys have been released into the wild!

Beco Butterflys Are Here!

12 Apr

My shipment of Beco Butterfly Baby Carriers has arrived, and is available for immediate shipping (which is free in the US!).

My retrofitted Butterflys from the January and February print runs are back, too, after a detour via Europe (!) courtesy of the U.S. Postal Service. I’m not quite sure why the mail guys mistook Princeton, NJ 08540 for FPO AE 09840. I will be listing the retrofit prints I will have in stock (a couple of Sophias and Avas, some Mias, and POSSIBLY a Carnival and Joshua) after I hear back from people who had expressed interest in these prints. If they don’t want them….I’m releasing them into the wild!
