New Catbird Baby Pikkolos in stock and check out the newest print – Annika Gray!

26 May

It’s no secret that I love Catbird Baby Pikkolos.  It’s my favorite buckle carrier recommendation for newborns (read more in a previous blog post, here!), and I’m still loving it with my 2 year old toddler both with and without the toddler support belt!

Catbird Baby has just released it’s newest print – Annika Gray!

Annika, with black straps, has always been a popular Pikkolo print among QuirkyBaby customers.  I know the gray version will be just as popular!  Perfect lighter color for summer, as well. 🙂  Besides Annika Gray, check out the other gorgeous prints and patterns in stock at QuirkyBaby, and remember that, with any Pikkolo purchase, you can add on the toddler structured waist support belt (regularly $25) for only $10 more!  Fast and FREE Priority shipping in the US and free gifts with purchase, as always.

Enjoy!

Introducing Tweak of the Week!

29 Jan

It’s been in the works for a while, and I finally got my new webcam to replace my broken one… so now here it is! The idea behind “tweak of the week” comes from the most common troubleshooting topics I encounter when helping parents with their carriers as well as my own experience finding ways to make my carriers work better for me. So, without further adieu, here’s my first tweak for buckle carriers/SSCs complete with baby bump:

QB Baby Carrier of the Week: Spotlight on Boba Baby Carrier

17 Jun

This week, QuirkyBaby turns the spotlight on the Boba Baby Carrier, a buckle carrier that’s relatively new but has quickly become extremely popular. My guest this week is Elizabeth Antunovic, designer of the Boba and founder of NAP, Inc., which also makes the Sleepy Wrap. Fun fact about the Boba — it takes its name from Boulder Baby (carrier).

Why QuirkyBaby loves the Boba Baby Carrier:

  • It provides ergonomic support for older, taller, heavier babies, toddlers, and preschoolers and their parents
  • It’s made from organic cotton and manufactured in Boulder, Colorado
  • It’s a rugged, simple, reasonably priced soft structured carrier

QuirkyBaby offers the Boba 2.0, in six organic color combinations, including the Tweet print! Check out the Classic, which offers the same great fit and functionality in a less expensive, non-organic version.

Beco Gemini Sneak Peek

17 May

Fans of the Beco 4th Generation and Beco Butterfly are really looking forward to the imminent release of the Beco Gemini buckle carrier. I can’t tell you exactly when it will be out, but it won’t be long now before Beco Baby Carriers lifts the suspense and introduces the latest addition to the Beco family of structured carriers!

In a nutshell, the Gemini WILL:

  • Allow a forward-facing out position that’s ergonomic and comfortable for both parent and child
  • Enable a hip carry position
  • Be able to be worn with shoulder straps crossed on the back for a front carry
  • Have a fold-up/fold-down head rest
  • Work for babies from 7 to 35 pounds
  • Ensure the wearer’s comfort with padded shoulder straps and hip belt

The Gemini will NOT:

  • Need an infant insert
  • Have the harness system of the Butterfly
  • Have a separate, detachable sleeping hood
