Some baby carriers area almost baby-sized — but the Bitybean is an “ultracompact” carrier that can fit in purse when not in use.
It’s made of machine-washable nylon/polyester, with an optional fleece infant liner.
It weighs just 8 ounces and is “smaller than a water bottle,” but it will let you front- or rear-carry for infants 3 months old, from 8-40 pounds, with anatomically designed shoulder and waist straps. It’s “comfortable, convenient, and thoughtfully engineered,” the company says. “The versatility of this carrier allow parents the freedom to be ready for anything – from shopping to hiking, to travel or family adventures.”
