The Pikkolo Baby Carrier is very flexible carrier that is ideal for parents who have tried other carriers and are having trouble finding the carrier love.
The Pikkolo is cross between a meh dai and a buckle carrier. It has unpadded straps that buckle, with the option of a support belt to turn it into a more structured carrier as your baby grows.
We love the Pikkolo because it is incredibly versatile, with lots of wearing positions, and its slim-fitting design makes it a great fit for petite wearers. With four carrying positions (and no need for an infant insert), the Pikkolo is quite customizable for different sizes/ages of children so it will carry your baby from birth to toddlerhood!
The Pikkolo baby carrier is a unique blend of a soft, structured buckle carrier (with buckle closures) and a mei tai carrier.
Features of the Pikkolo baby carrier include:
- Use it from newborn – 40lbs- no infant insert needed!
- 4 carrying position:on your front, back, front forward facing, and hip carry
- Adjustable base cinches down to 7-8′. This allows younger babies to comfortably have their leg out. It also accommodates front-facing carries while still offering proper support and positioning.
- Shoulder straps taper from 3.5″ to 2.5″ for comfort beneath the arms in a back carry.
- High-density, slow recovery foam in the shoulder straps is squishy-soft but maintains its shape.
- Buckles attach to the center body and are dual-adjustable. You can adjust them to remain on top of the fabric or off to the side.
- A great carrier for anyone, but especially those who like the look and minimalist feel of a Meh Dai with the ease-of-use of quick buckle closures.
- Includes stowable, attached sleeping hood and chest belt.
- Recommended accessory: the Catbird Baby babywearing support belt turns your Pikkolo baby carrier into a more standard-style buckle carrier.
