I am SO excited to announce this giveaway. One of my lovely sponsors, Catbird Baby, is offering one of their amazing pikkolo carriers + winter cover to a lucky Marvelous Kiddo reader!
The pikkolo carrier is a unique blend of mei tai and buckle carrier that features comfortable but slim memory foam straps, enables you to do an ergonomic front facing out carry, can be used from birth without a separate insert, and still works great for carrying toddlers up to 40 lbs.! Comes with detachable hood, optional chest strap for use with back carrying, and instructional booklet. 100% brushed cotton (exclusive of trim).
The winner of this giveaway will also win the original winter cover designed for wide-base carriers like mei tais and SSCs! The Catbird Baby cover is sleek and simple; you just lay the top flap over the top edge of your carrier and snap down under the shoulder straps. The shell is soft, sueded, water-resistant microfiber in black, the lining is heather charcoal gray fleece. An elasticized foot pocket keeps baby's legs cozy and warm. Fits up to approximately age 2. Also great as a foot blanket in the car or snap to your umbrella stroller. Made in United States.
Catbird Baby was kind enough to send me both of these items for review, so I can attest to how comfortable, functional, versatile, and easy-to-use this carrier is. If you are just getting started with babywearing, the pikkolo would be a wonderful and simple introductory carrier. Likewise, if you already have a large stash of slings and wraps (like I do!) the pikkolo would be a terrific addition. I have not used another carrier besides this one since it arrived last week! I also love the super-soft, snuggly, warm-yet-lightweight winter cover. It has made going out in the suddenly bitter NYC cold much more enjoyable ;)
