An Awesome Batman Baby Carrier

An awesome Batman baby carrier

With three boys running wild in the house, we’re no strangers to super heroes. After 15 years I can now confidently say with pride that I know the difference between DC and Marvel, who Luke Skywalker’s father is and the real identity of Spiderman.

So when I spotted a Batman baby carrier for sale on a Facebook selling sight, I knew it would be a welcome addition to our home. Daz prefers to carry Baby R in the sling so I thought it only fitting I bought him one for his birthday.

There are a few cottage industries out there offering custom-made carriers so I had a few to choose from before settling with Wrapahula. After several exchanged Facebook messages, I put in an order for a mid-sized baby/toddler Mei Tai.

The Mei Tai style sling is a really basic concept of a rectangular piece of material with 4 straps, 2 round the waist and 2 shoulder straps. Daz finds these easier to use than our buckle carrier as he can tie it to fit (I personally find the extra straps annoying so am remaining faithful to our CatBirdBaby sling) more importantly though, is that it supports your baby in the correct ergonomic position for their development and Baby R certainly seems to like it.

I upgraded my order to include a detachable hood with bat ears, lined in grey and with extra padding to the shoulder straps. My carrier also came with a Batman mirror for keeping an eye on your little one when you’re carrying them on the back.

The attention to the customisation was fantastic, we discussed how my baby liked to be carried, (arms out usually) and took measurements from the one we were using as it was a good fit which we wanted to replicate and the result was the ultimate sling for Daz & Baby R’s comfort. It’s this level of service and quality of a Wrapahula sling which is the reason I’m sharing with you.

I’ll admit I was a little dubious about paying so much for a sling which wasn’t sold by a well known company, but considering the time and craftsmanship which has gone into it, I have no hesitation in recommending Wrapahula slings. They have also kindly offered Mum in a Nutshell readers a 10% discount for a limited time if anyone else is tempted by them.

I received no payment or incentive to write this review. It’s just a really great sling which I wanted to let you know about.

      I made sure we went a little bigger so it can be used for a few more years. I love baby wearing but this sling is my husbands own personal one and I’m not sure he’s up for sharing!

      I was so excited about giving this to my husband, he is so proud of it. (oh how times have changed, I never though giving him a baby carrier would make him so happy!)

    I love this carrier. It is definitely a thing of beauty! My hubby desperately wants a Superheroes one. Will show him this one and see how jealous he is!

      That’s mean but funny! Careful though, I showed my husband a superhero one last year & he kept asking for one. It’s inly taken me 6 months to get round to it!

    We’ve got a Mei Tai too and absolutely love it! The fabric is awesome! My daddy would love that! #TriedTested

    That is fantastic! I want one and I don’t even have a baby to put in it.

      She may make a bigger one if you have a petite friend you could carry around?

  7. 30th June 2015 / 1:57 pm

    I love batman and I love babywearing – therefore it’s safe to say that I love this!

      me too, its a real protective alpha male thing isn’t it, although I think its probably more the attention from other ladies that sways his decision to baby wear!

    Oh wow I wish I’d have had one of these when T was a baby. Visiting from #twinklytuesday

    Oh. My. Goodness. That is just perfect! I wish I’d put more effort into finding the RIGHT babywearing solution. Thanks for linking to #TwinklyTuesday.

      I must admit I got a little obsessed, I’ve spent more on slings than on a pushchair, I’m looking for a good light weight one now!

I'd love to know what you think?
