After waddling around with a front load for nine months, you figured you’d get a break.
And you were right. Carrying your little bundle of joy is breaking your back.
Give your aching shoulders a time-out with Beco’s Butterfly baby carrier. The ergonomic baby pack, designed by a hiker mom, comes in an array of prints and solids, so it’s easy on the bod and the eyes. Plus, the built-in infant insert means it works for every babe, from tiny to toddler (up to 45 pounds).
So you can finally take a load off.
