IF you’ve ever taken a young child on vacation, you know how difficult it can be to carry them around all day.
But a $20 product will transform your next trip by making carrying your little one that much easier.
Paraphee designed the Hipster baby carrier – a belt that buckles around a parent’s waist and has a seat attached for a child to sit on.
The harness resembles a fanny pack and the seat juts up and out so a toddler can clip onto it and stay close to their parents.
By placing your child in the harness-attached seat, their weight is distributed more evenly across your body than when carried on the hip.
This means it’s more convenient to hold while walking through an airport or exploring while on vacation.
The carrier is adjustable so it can fit a parent’s height and the maximum weight it can carry is 15kg, making it perfect for a toddler.
Travel blogger, mom and Tiktok user Jess stopping by @whereisbriggsShe shared a video of herself walking through an airport in a similar stretcher.
She buckled the seat belt around her waist, tightening it to keep it in place, and placed her 17-month-old toddler in the seat.
This made it easier to carry around as there was less stress on her arms, waist and back, making it more comfortable to hold him for longer.
She writes about her video: “The hip seat baby carrier distributes your baby’s weight evenly so that you can carry your little one longer and more comfortably.”
Since her son was not strapped into the seat, he could easily get on and off when he wanted to walk.
Jess said, “I love it because my walking toddler can easily get down and back up when they’re tired of running.”
Additionally, the carrier has pockets to hold everything from pacifiers to passports – and you may not even be charged for an extra pocket.
Jess captioned the video: “Plus the airline didn’t charge me extra to bring this on board.”
The Hipster baby carrier is available at Amazon for €19.99and is a cheaper version of the Tushbaby carrier that Jess wore.
