Hip Carriers

About Hip Carriers

Hip carriers are similar to ring slings in that they are one shouldered carriers and are generally (as the name suggests) worn on the hip. The difference between hip carriers and ring slings is that hip carriers are usually more "structured" in appearance - with a buckle waist and often a padded waistband. Hip carriers are very easy to use and are extremely useful for older babies and toddlers who like to see around them and are at the "up and down" stage. For more detailed information on wraps see our "Sling Advice" section.


Suitable from 5 months to pre school (40 lbs), this innovative hip carrier has the following features:
  • custom designed buckles that easily adjust with one hand, making this carrier extremely quick to get on and off
  • distributes weight evenly between hip & shoulder
  • lightly padded, high-back seat for baby
  • wide padded waistband
  • stretchy, supportive fleece shoulder won’t impede arm movement
  • waist and shoulder straps adjust to fit most adults - no need to buy different sizes for different users
  • sturdy construction with reinforced seams
  • folds compactly and stores/transports in its own nylon bag
  • machine washable

Promoting the face-to-face interaction that babies and toddlers adore, the Scootababy is a truly innovative carrier that takes up where other infant carriers leave off and excels at carrying heavier babies and toddlers. Here at Koalacubs, we have tried and tested this carrier at both the baby and toddler stage and can testify that it is a supportive, comfortable hip carrier that parents will enjoy using with their little one for many years, perfect for all the times when your little one shouts, "UP!"
