The last couple of months I have been really sore in my lower back. I am not sure exactly what I did that started bothering it, but after visiting a chiropractor I knew I needed to change a few things. One of the things that stood out to me the most is that my back may be hurting because of the way I hold my son, Donovan! First of all, he’s a BIG boy. He weighs over 30 pounds and whenever I would hold him, I’d have to stick out my hip so he could have a spot to sit on me. This is NOT good for the back. Anyways, I wanted to share this AMAZING new product that I’ve been using! It’s called the 2-In-1 carrier + hip seat from Moby and it’s a lifesaver for me (+ my back!!).
The new Moby 2-in-1 Carrier and Hip Seat combines the support of a standard ergonomic baby carrier with the simple carrying assistance of a hip seat in one convenient baby wearing product! It’s the perfect baby gear solution for parenting transitions and adapts as your little one grows.
What I love about the Moby is that this carrier has 4 carrier options: front-inward, hip, front-outward & back and then 3 Hip seat options: front-inward, front-outward & hip! My favorite way to carry Donovan is the Hip seat on my hip. I can easily pick Donovan up and put him down when he wants. But I have the amazing support from the seat.
The hip seat has a hard structure so it’s super supportive but also comfortable for both mom + baby! I bring this thing everywhere – especially when I know Donovan will want to be carried for part of the time. Just the other day, my mom and I took the kids to the park and the beach and the hip seat came in handy so much! I love that by wearing the hip seat I don’t have to stick my hip out to carry Donovan. It really has been helping my back!
My mom also loves it, LOL! It’s a great way for Grandparents to hold babies, too!
