Super versatile carrier
The detachable hip seat makes my little ones feel as if they're floating a little as I shift them to my back. They're able to sit up higher and see over my shoulder as well. The wedge comes out easily, though, for those smaller kiddos. Since Gooby is right on the cusp of weight classes, I've taken to leaving the wedge in place so that the Honey Badger can share.
While I generally prefer to back carry my kiddos as soon as they're able, the Écleve Pulse offers 9! options for little ones weighing 12-45 pounds. The waistband is thicker, providing support in any carry position. It fastens using hook & loop with an added buckle closure for safety. The front panel unzips down to let the breathable mesh panel keep us cool in warm temps. (There's even a storage pouch for it!).
