    BabyHawk carriers

    Not sure if this is the right place or not, but tell me about BabyHawk carriers. Do you love them, hate them, like them ok? Spill your beans I'm considering getting one for DD, stats in my siggy. It would be used around the house and for trips to like Target, etc.

    Re: BabyHawk carriers

    I adore mine!!! My dd is 29 inches, 20 lbs and 13m right now and we've been using and loving our babyhawk since she was less than 3 months. I've used it with our 3 year old godson too and even though he's not used to being worn he is very mellow and comfy in it and neither DH or I have any issues wearing him even though he's much bigger/heavier than dd.

    I just ordered a ToddlerHawk last night and it was shipped today, so I'll be able to let you know what I think of mine soon. My DD is 32 pounds, I'm hoping it works out!

    Re: BabyHawk carriers

    I my Babyhawk MT. Seriously, love it. I have been using a ring sling since Z was born, but just a couple weeks ago, decided to break out the BH. It is amazing. I've had 2 different Baby bjorn carriers - the regular and the active ones and they always hurt my back. The BH is so much better. The first time I wore it was in WM for about 2 hrs and my back was just fine. Get one, you will love it, I promise!

    Re: BabyHawk carriers

    Thanks everyone! I've decided to order one. One question... Whats the difference in the BabyHawk and the ToddlerHawk?

    Re: BabyHawk carriers

    The only difference is that the body is a few inches longer on the ToddlerHawk. If you're only planning on using it for toddlers I'd probably go with that and get a little extra support to keep the kiddo from arching on you, especially if they're not used to being worn. I've tried our dd (13 m) in the ToddlerHawk though and felt like it was too long for her to fit comfortably but she's pretty petite. I like the ToddlerHawk better with our godson who is larger and older.

    I wasn't sure either and when I did a search, most people said they wished they had gotten the ToddlerHawk for the extra body length. Those who bought the TH and used it for a smaller child said they just rolled up the extra length until they needed it.

    Just a tip in case you're impatient like me....I ordered from Quirkybaby at around 1AM Tuesday and it was shipped out later that morning! I was going to order from the BH site, but I didn't see any that I was in love with and I'm too impatient to wait on a custom one They didn't have many to choose from but did have the Carnival print and I love it!

    Re: BabyHawk carriers

    I ordered a custom Toddler Hawk before Christmas, and it still took less than a week to ship! I was shocked at how fast it got here, and I'm really glad I went custom for the colors I wanted.

    Re: BabyHawk carriers

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Babyhawk! I have a few Mei Tais and this is the only one I use now. It is so perfect with DS2 and DD loves it too. So cozy and easy! I ordered a custom and it arrived in less than a week.

    I am actually about to order a second one, one for the car and one for the house.
