Hippychick Hipseat review

Key features
  • Front facing in only
Reviewed

The Hipseat is a belt with a little padded shelf on one side that supports your child when they're perching on your hip. It's designed to remove some of the back strain you can suffer when carrying a heavy baby or toddler, and is suitable for children aged between six months and three years. We've asked three sets of parents with children of different ages to try it out and see whether the Hipseat lives up to its back-saving claims.
