The Ergobaby Hip Seat – A New Way to Carry Baby

The Ergobaby Hip Seat - A New Way to Carry Baby

Babes in Arms, proud distributor of Ergobaby across Australia and New Zealand, is proud to launch the NEW Ergobaby Hip Seat!

After years of providing comfortable, ergonomic baby carriers, Ergobaby can now offer another choice for parents who want to carry baby in their arms with less fatigue – The Ergobaby Hip Seat.

With the Ergobaby Hip Seat, you will enjoy the benefits and versatility of both a hip seat AND a soft structured carrier. The large, cushioned seat is comfortable and ergonomic for growing baby while parents enjoy the weight-bearing relief from the wide supportive waistband.

The freedom of movement offered by the Hip Seat is perfect for older babies going through that transitional phase when they become more mobile and start exploring. The Hip Seat can be used without the back panel for a fast and easy way to carry and put baby down in an instant, and is a cooler option during hot summer months. The back panel zips on easily to create a complete baby carrier so baby can snuggle close for a nap while parents remain hands-free.

“After experiencing toddlerhood four times over, I can see how practical the hip seat is,” says Anita Lincolne-Lomax, Director of Babes in Arms and mother of four. “Your baby is going to grow heavier and more active, but they will always want to stay close to you. The Ergobaby Hip Seat is going to save your shoulders and back during all those ups and downs!”

The Ergobaby Hip Seat is another option for you and your growing baby to experience the world together, both comfortably and ergonomically. One carrier, more choices.

The Ergobaby Hip Seat - A New Way to Carry Baby

Features and Benefits:

6 carry positions – removable panel allows many carrying options
Weight-bearing seat allows you to hold baby longer with less fatigue
Best of both worlds – 2 convenient modes, with or without the zip-on panel
Hip seat mode provides quick and cool carry options
Carrier mode uses the panel for hands-free snuggles and snoozing

Availability:

The New Ergobaby Hip Seat is available in two colors – Twilight Blue and Galaxy Grey – now at select Ergobaby retailers and online at Babes in Arms. RRP $199.00
