Why we love it: A unique carrier - a buckle carrier designed to be worn on your hip. Great for nosy babies or those just finding out about the world. Easier to use than a ring sling for many people, but with all the benefits. Quick to put on, no faffing and so great for babies and younger toddlers who like to be up and down a lot. I used one for a long time with my son, kept it in the car for popping in and out of places - loved it.
We often recommend Scootababy carriers for people who have limited mobility in one or both hands/arms. There is only one buckle to do up, a large one on the waist. The shoulder strap is simply tightened up, so nothing fiddly to mess around with.
We love Scootababy carriers so much, we sell them too!
