The baby carrier is a great tool for anyone who needs to carry a baby around. My wife and I have used both the BabyBjorn and the Ergobaby to carry Jack, and we preferred the latter. But even though the companies say kids can use them when 36-48 months old, we found both to be awkward once our son hit 20 months.

That’s where TushBaby comes in. It’s billed as the original and only USA-safety-certified hip baby carrier, and it was made popular on the show Shark Tank. There are a number of things that make the TushBaby great.

  • It was approved by pediatricians (for the babies) and by chiropractors (for the adults carrying them). The ergonomic seat puts your baby’s hips in the pediatric-recommend M position, and reduces painful spine curvature for grown-ups.
  • It weighs less than a pound.
  • It doubles as a diaper bag with large storage pockets so you can leave the bulky diaper bag at home.
  • It’s made for newborns up to three-year-old toddlers (or 44lbs). There are four positions: feeding, side carrying, front facing, and face to face.

I really like it but my wife loves it because our 2.3-year-old is getting big and heavy. The TushBaby allows her to carry him more easily without him feeling like he’s caged in. It’s a win-win for everyone. $79.99 on Amazon.

    I’m not so sure. Have you seen the miamily? It came out first and was a full carrier that the top could be detached and the bottom looked very much like this. It was doctor approved and Swiss designed and they sell just the hip carrier as well.
