We’re marching on with our extensive list of baby carrier reviews for The Great Babywearing Project. Our most recent addition is the Bitybean Ultra-compact Carrier.
“The Bitybean ultra compact baby carrier is THE smallest baby carrier I have found out there that still remains comfortable for both the child and the wearer. It is about the size of a Nalgene water bottle and weighs only 8 ounces.
The Bitybean is recommended for children 3 months AND at least 8 pounds up to 40 pounds and 3 years of age. Because of her excellent head control, I did have L in it briefly before 3 months just to see how she did. She was safe (I checked plenty), but definitely more comfortable once she hit that 3 month age mark. Alternatively, our very small, 25 pound 3 year old is honestly not ideal in it. The seat of the carrier is more narrow, and while this is great for smaller babies, it means that he isn’t getting a complete ergonomic hold that goes from knee to knee. HE always says he is fine and comfortable, but I don’t feel like I could wear him in it for a long stretch of time. That said, the Bitybean is intended as a back-up carrier – not necessarily something you would wear all day long. It is a perk of the carrier – small and ready for when you need to be comfortably hands-free.”
