The new Stokke MyCarrier starts off as a front carrier, and when your baby reaches around a year old you can use it on your back.
We will be getting the MyCarrier in for a first look review very soon. In the meantime, read our full reviews to find out the best baby carriers and slings that’ll keep both parent and baby comfortable and safe.
Stokke is a brand best known for its Tripp Trapp high chair and Xplory pushchair, both of which we’ve reviewed.
The MyCarrier has been designed in colours to co-ordinate with the Xplory and uses organic fabrics. It’s available now and costs £139.
Stokke believes that the MyCarrier is really easy to use and adapt.
Which? baby carriers expert Victoria Pearson said: ‘We’re looking forward to getting this carrier in to see how easy to use a parent triallist finds it. In our full baby carrier tests, parents found some of the carriers and slings they tried out very complicated to put on and adjust.’
The MyCarrier has an adjustable seating position that supports the bottom, thighs and pelvis in a position that Stokke calls ‘Happy Hips’ when your baby faces you. This position can be used from birth.
When your baby can hold her head up unaided, she can be turned outwards and the seating position can be adapted to provide good support.
Children over 12 months old can be carried on your back with the addition of an additional back support (included in the price).
You can also put your child into the carrier before lifting it on to your back which is handy as it means you don’t need another adult to help you.
The MyCarrier comes with a three-year extended warranty if you register it on the Stokke website.
