This Bugg Carrier is based on a traditional Tai carrier being made of soft, durable and washable fabrics while still having some structure to the “pouch” and straps.
You can choose from a variety of base colours (black, brown, beige, grey, denim) each with their own unique hoody print.
Special attention has been given to the way your baby’s weight is carried ensuring that the bulk of his weight is carried as he sits on his bum. By carrying your baby in this sitting position less strain is placed on his spine. The wide, padded straps and waist bands ensure that you carry your baby’s weight split between your shoulders, your back as well as across your hips. This distribution of weight helps to prevent poor posture and back strain of the person doing the babywearing.
It is easy to fold up and tuck away in a nappy bag. The long straps make it easier for all caregivers to wear – Mom, Dad, Granny, Nanny can all use the same carrier.
Although the Bugg Carrier can be used with very small babies if they are positioned correctly and supported well; it was designed for babies that have some head and neck control. This usually develops between 3 and 4 months. During this stage it is best to carry your baby on your front so that you can interact easily with him and shelter him from too much stimulation. As your baby’s head control gets stronger and he can manage more stimulation, you can also carry him on your back. In this position he can look around more and enjoy his ever changing environment. The Bugg Carrier can be used with toddlers as well, who generally prefer to be carried on your back.
