Right now, as you read this post, we are in the middle of Stinky's 1st birthday party! YAY! We made it! He's on top of the world right now, right where he likes to be!
One way we help him have that coveted birds-eye view is by carrying him in his Lillebaby Nordic carrier!
Stinky's a little bigger than the baby in that picture. He's around 22 pounds, now. He's getting a little heavy for this momma to carry! Momma's got some medical issues that have been making carrying difficult some days, and the Lillebaby Nordic has been really helpful! It's a breeze to strap on. Since I'm the only one that uses it, I leave the straps set for me. I leave it in the back of the car, and when I need it I just throw it on! Easy as that.
This week daddy was at class and we needed to go to the grocery. It's been a while since I had to go with all three kids; I decided to brave it, but I wasn't in the mood to chase two kids through the store while pushing Stinky in the cart! Enter: Lillebaby Nordic!
Sorry about the photography...Little Lou snapped the shot for me! Stinky LOVES the Lillebaby Nordic! When we went to the grocery, he was in his winter coat. Usually he's just got clothes on. It still worked perfectly, but I did have to have Little Lou re-snap the neck support one time. I think it was just because he was wearing his coat, though!
Stinky doesn't love being carried on the front anymore, so I don't have a picture that way. I could take one, but he'd be screaming. I love it, however, that the Lillebaby Nordic has an adjustable crotch so that it can be used for a small baby facing in or a bigger baby facing out! In fact, there are 6 different positions that you can use with the Lillebaby Nordic! You can carry babies from 7 to 42 pounds! (You just need to purchase a separate infant cradle for newborns.) I tried Bugsy in it. He's right at the top end of the weight. I couldn't get him onto my back by myself, so I tried him on my hip. He's a little tall for the hip carry, but not too heavy! I am confident he'd be okay on my back!
I LOVE the Lillebaby Nordic! The manual refers to an optional hood that is available to purchase. I originally posted that I couldn't find that for sale, and was quickly referred to this page: EveryWear Hood. I couldn't find it because I was looking for the Nordic hood! The EveryWhere Hood will fit the Nordic and is just $10! I'll be sure to update soon (when mine comes!) and let you know how much we love the hood feature! Thank you, Lillebaby, for a great carrier!
