As my babywearing days with Bella wind down, partly due to pregnancy and partly to the fact that she’s getting older, I find myself wanting to enjoy the closeness we didn’t get a whole lot of her first year (reflux kills the joy of it). I also find myself gearing up for a new little one to wear and snuggle.
So when Onya Baby contacted me about doing a review/giveaway of one of their adorable carriers that retail at $149,
I jumped at the chance. Not only because you can back and front wear with either type of their carrier (which means Sam can wear Bella longer than I’ll be able to), and it’s one of the lightest carriers I’ve owned (of the 8 I’ve had), but because you can wear your toddler up to 45lbs, and it doubles as a seat.
The Onya Baby is available in 2 different styles:
The Cruiser: a softer, cotton carrier perfect for farmer’s markets and everyday wearing.
The outback: a more rugged version, with a water-resistant, rip-stop nylon exterior and air-mesh lining, making it perfect for hot weather or hiking the trails.
I went with The Outback as we have mild winters and hot summers here. Both can be worn front or back.
I love that they have a front zippered pocket; perfect for easy storage of cash at a Farmer’s Market, a cell phone, a diaper and wipes, and/or a burp cloth. 2 toys rings help you to never have to pick up the toy that kept being chucked across the room. I also love the hood – it’s light and has a pouch that it tucks away in when not in use. And? A key ring.
So basically, in an Onya Baby you can wear your kid and not worry about a high chair, a purse, a diaper bag, toys, where you put your keys, or a hat. Which is a total win for anyone with Mommy Brain. ::raises hand::
