Baby April 26, 2020
In the animal kingdom many new-borns are on their feet within minutes after being born, thankfully human infants take a little longer to get moving, it is pretty nice in those early months knowing they will stay exactly where you put them, the down side to this is you will have to carry them everywhere.
The Hana Expand Baby and Toddler Carrier makes lugging about your child a more comfortable experience, it comes in four attractive designs Grey-Seafoam, Grey-Yellow, Navy-Charcoal and Navy-Petrol. The shell and lining are made from 100% organic cotton, this keeps the weight down low to just 1kg and the whole carrier packs down to a small and compact piece when not in use, easy to store away in the nappy bag.
The flexible structure can be adjusted in width and length, so it can accommodate babies from new-born (3.5kgs/7.7lbs) without the need of an insert, it grows with your baby into toddlerhood (up to 20kgs/44lbs), adjustments are easy to make with a simple sliding movement. The carrier can be worn on the front or back with the straps straight or crossed, whatever you find gives you and baby the best support and comfort, the straps are generously padded and the large buckle is easy to open with one hand.
Unlike some carriers the Expand is intuitive to put on and baby feels secure from the very beginning, there is a removeable head support and even a handy storage pocket for tucking away essential items whilst keeping them close to hand.
Like many child carriers the Expand can get rather warm, this is just a result of having baby so close to your body, but the wide waist belt and padded shoulder straps certainly add to the insulation. As long as you aren’t wearing the Expand for long periods of time on hot days this is nearly a perfect baby carrier, comfortable, supportive and grows with baby. RRP £90.00
