I was asked to participate in the #MiaMily3DBabyCarrier campaign, sponsored by MiaMilly. Although I have been compensated for this must have baby items post, all opinions are my own. Thank you so much for supporting the sponsors who help to make Glitter, Inc. possible!
One of the number one must have baby items I used with Scarlett as a baby – and knew I’d want to use again for baby number two – was a baby carrier. Once you see the light of baby-wearing, you’ll never go back. And honestly, now that I’m juggling a toddler and a brand new baby, baby wearing has become essential for us.
No matter how cozy a swing or stroller may be, your baby will like being cradled in your arms and up against your chest best. It’s where they spent the last nine+ months. But toting your little one around all day isn’t really feasible unless you have arms of steel. And if you have other kids – forget it – you’ll need a whole extra pair of arms to even think about surviving. Which is why, baby wearing, especially for veteran moms, is THE BEST. Seriously. There’s not a new mom out there I wouldn’t highly recommend baby-wearing to; and for second-time moms, it’s absolutely essential.
Because I have a toddler to look after, I knew the MiaMily HIPSTER™ PLUS 3D Baby Carrier was going to be a perfect fit. Hands-free is SO important for us.
The MiaMily HIPSTER™ PLUS 3D Baby Carrier is the one and only baby carrier you’ll ever need and works from newborn to 4 years old or 44lbs. It actually offers 9 ways to carry your baby (6 ways + 3 more ways with single shoulder accessory) and has been approved by the international hip dysplasia institute as hip healthy carrier. It’s also comfy for you: the high waist belt provides amazing lumbar support and takes the weight off your back with a sturdy 3D hip seat.
The design is also brilliant. There’s a handy front pocket at the base of the hip seat with ample room to help keep you organized. It actually has the biggest storage pockets in the market. When I pick up Scarlett from school, I’m able to put my cell phone, wallet, and keys in the pouch, and stay hands-free to hold Scarlett’s hand (and her backpack in the other hand, which she inevitably throws on the ground so that she can collect rocks and leaves. Seriously, need a rock? We’ve got a whole collection in the backseat and probably a few in my MiaMily carrier pouches too!) 😂
And in case you’re a mama to more than one little one, MiaMily sells the sweetest doll baby carrier, a MiaMily Doll HIPSTER™, so your kids can pretend to be just like mommy and daddy and carry their favorite baby dolls or stuffed animals with them wherever they go. Scarlett got such a kick out of getting to wear her baby just like mommy. She loves her MiaMily Doll HIPSTER™ carrier and loves carrying her baby around with her everywhere we go. We also get a lot of people asking where we got it from – and I never fail to let everyone know that baby wearing can be for the whole family! Also, what a brilliant gift are these carriers for both mom and older siblings so that when the new baby comes they can have tons of fun role playing with their very own babies. Scarlett keeps telling me that she has a newborn too!
I love that the easy to use design allows kids to take the carrier on and off themselves.
Here we went for a walk and I was able to hold Scarlett’s hand, help her collect rocks and twigs, and crouch down to look for a “real bunny.” Not yet convinced that this is one of the best must have baby items??
And just because I couldn’t NOT share this sweet photo: here’s Scarlett cuddling her newborn bunny in her carrier, just like mommy cuddles Emmeline in hers. I can’t help it; she’s just so cuddly.
Goodness, I adore these girls.
The best part (aside from having a fantastic carrier that keeps your sweet little one close to your heart, of course): you can register for your MiaMily HIPSTER™ PLUS 3D baby carrier on BuyBuyBaby.com or MiaMily.com.
