It’s day 6 of Baby’s 1st Birthday Bash! I am so excited to tell you about what I have up for review today!
I recently had the opportunity to try out the Baby Nari Hip Hugger
. The Baby Nari Hip Hugger is a wonderful, functional new product that recently debuted at the 2010 ABC Kids Expo. The Hip Hugger is a baby carrier designed to allow you to carry your child without the tremendous strain to your arms and back. The Baby Nari Hip Hugger has two different styles. The infant style
is for babies who can sit up up to 22 lbs. The toddler style
is recommended for infants and toddlers 22 lbs up to 36 months or 40 lbs. The seat on the toddler style is tilted up at an angle to help compensate for the child’s weight so you can keep your body straight.
I am in LOVE with the Baby Nari Hip Hugger! Little Brother is a 24 pound chubba-lub and carrying him around for any extended period of time is not fun–though I do have a very nice left bicep. Although we use our stroller a lot there are occasions where the stroller is simply not practical. We live in a neighborhood where we can walk to a lot of the places we go. As the weather begins to warm up we will be making almost daily trips to the park only a couple blocks away. Little brother is just starting to walk and will soon be wanting more independence than a stroller can offer. Carrying Little brother on the (toddler style) Hip Hugger is the perfect solution. I can carry him to the park without feeling like my arm is going to fall off, and then lift him up and down to be carried or to play as needed.

When I first began using the Baby Nari Hip Hugger it took a few tries and adjustments before it was comfortable. I am thin and have always had bony hips. I found that I have to wear the hip hugger on the front of my hip in order for it to be comfortable. The Husband likes to wear it on the side of his body. Also, I found that when I fastened the Hip Hugger so it was comfortably tight it made for much more comfortable babywearing. The Hip Hugger has a convenient large pocket and a few smaller ones which are great for snacks, camera, diapers, cell phone, or anything else you might possibly need on an outing.
We recently took a trip to the children’s museum in Salt Lake City…on a Saturday. I’m really glad we brought our Hip Hugger because there is no way we’d have been able to navigate a stroller through there. The Hip Hugger was sooo convenient. I loved that we could put Little Brother on the Hip Hugger when he wanted to be held, and lift him off with such ease when he was ready to play. There are no straps and such to hassle with! Our Baby Nari Hip Hugger is going to get a LOT of mileage over the years!
