Carry Baby in Comfort and Style: Win a Scootababy!

scootababy.jpgI recently had the chance to try the Scootababy, a new mom-invented babywearing carrier. The Scootababy is a hip carrier that holds baby snugly against your body in a face-to-face position. Baby can see everything going on around him as well as mommy.

The Scootababy is intended for babies five months and older (up to 40 pounds), and there are lots of pictures on of babies and toddlers using the carrier.

Since Baby Mwah is a newborn and still too small to try the Scootababy, I tested it on a friend’s 10 month old daughter. She fit easily in the lightly padded seat, and I was even able to feed her a bottle while holding her in the Scootababy. (Breastfeeding mommies can nurse while baby is in the Scootababy, and there are pictures on showing how to do this.)

The Scootababy was so easy to put on and adjust. All I had to do is secure the wide, padded waist belt and pull on the fleece shoulder strap. I could even adjust the shoulder fleece with one hand! It was easy to get baby in and out of the carrier– a handy feature since older babies often fuss to get down only to change their minds a moment later when they insist on being carried.

The Scootababy was comfortable to use. The fleece strap cups the shoulder, staying in place and spreading the weight across your entire shoulder rather than tugging at your neck.

The Scootababy is made in the USA with top quality materials (Polartec fleece, 100% cotton ring-spun denim, and performance EVA foam) from US suppliers. It comes in two styles: Classic Black and Jellybeans. Jellybeans (which is the pattern I own) is black denim with a cute jellybean fabric lining. Both patterns are practical enough to match most outfits, and my husband even remarked that he wouldn’t object to carrying baby in the black denim Scootababy.

    Please enter my name to win this wonderful
    product. I am pregnant at this time.
    I was Christmas shopping today and a baby fell
    out of a store shopping cart on it’s head.
    The baby was life flighted to Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA.

    My baby is due in June 2009. I definitely want
    to purchase the similar product for newborns

    Thank You.

    I have a ring sling, because my doughter loves hip carrying, but I think scootababy would be much comfortable because of the padded waist belt!

    Hello, this sling looks like so comfortable! I’d be happy to have one:)

    I love babywearing and my husband calls me the Emelda Markos of slings, as I’ve got quite a lot of different baby carriers :-).
    I do need them all though, as they all have their place, one is great for cleaning, one for the front (breastfeeding, going for a walk…), one for the back, one for the hip, one great in winter, one too hot in summer etc. So, you definitely need a variety of choice.
    I went to a babywearing meeting yesterday and got introduced to the Scootababy. I had just gone to meet some other likeminded people and not to buy yet another sling. Well, I tried it on and I was hooked. Haven’t been able to take my mind off it and have been researching it on the net all day.
    I’d love to win one, my second baby is only 7 months old and I have a lot of babywearing years ahead of me.
    I sell educational books and toys through party plans and it would be especially ideal for that, as the ergo in the front is not good for it and the back neither, as she would like to see….
    Ok, enough reasons. To sum it up, I loooove wearing my babies and have caried my first one up to almost 4 and I looove the scootababy.
