Designed from the Chinese Mei Tai baby carrier, Baby Hawk is one continuous piece of fabric crafted to securely hold your baby close to you.
You can wear the carrier on your hip, or front or back, and you can also choose from many designs. Good for newborns and kids up to 40 pounds...that is, if you can carry them that long. (Can you? Seems like it would kill my back!)
I even saw one mom on the website wearing two -- with one baby in the front, one in the back. Strong mama!
As much as I would like to, I don't think I can do that with my twins. One goes with hubs, the other goes with me.
What's coolest about Baby Hawk is that you can choose from one of the many in stock designs or make one yourself by picking out a design from their vast fabric collection -- you can even have them custom make one. They have a "Black Calaveras" design -- Dia de los Muertos skulls -- that I love! Plus they are reversible so you can have two different designs on each side -- or a design and a solid color so it doesn't clash with a print you may be wearing. Prices start at $80.
I have one and while my babies aren't born yet, I did try it on over my twin bump and it's really comfortable. My husband tried on the Baby Hawk with a doll in it and he liked it, too. The fabric is soft, but strong -- and even though at first glance the straps, and how to tie them, may seem daunting, it's not. I promise. I did it my first try. And if I can do it, you can, too.
