Newborns are magical. As are the talents you acquire within minutes of their arrival. (For my next trick, I will make, mix, and warm a bottle with one hand, while cradling the crying baby with the other.)
Before you get carried away with your newfound dexterity, we suggest slipping on a baby carrier from Petunia Pickle Bottom. The beloved line, known for its stylish and functional baby bags, has created a collection of carriers for hands-free baby toting.
Unlike other carriers, this one slips on like a tee and snaps into action with four easy buckles. Fitted just so, it doesn’t overtake your frame and still provides more than enough support for parent and baby.
With three styles, the Walkabout (a rugged look great for dads), the Sightseer (printed organic cottons that combine fashion and utility), and the Tour Guide (made from recycled nylon), it’s hard to choose just one. Clearly these guys have the magic touch.
Available online at petuniapicklebottom.com. For Father’s Day, all Walkabout carriers (and manly Scout diaper bags) are 15 percent off. Enter 15FORDAD at checkout; good through June 20.
