If you were a fan of the standard/Baby sized Emeibaby, you will fall in love all over again with the new Toddler size!

paxbaby

paxbaby

Whereas the Baby/Standard size Emeibaby fits babies from birth to three, the Toddler is better suited for older babies, from 34″ (around one year) to around four years of age.

Easy to adjust and easy to use – with an Emeibaby you get a perfect fit every time! It combines everything you love about a soft structured carrier, AND a woven wrap in ONE.

As you can see from the diagram, the Toddler size has a longer and wider body panel, a longer hood, and a broader back panel and waistband.

If your toddler was comfortable in the baby size, just think about how much more cozy he will be in the toddler size… with room to grow!! I love that the body panel is so much longer, especially if you have a little leaner!!

Because the wrap is fastened only to the middle portion of the waistband, you can easily bunch the fabric in to get a smaller seat for a smaller toddler, or spread it out nice and wide to get a good wide seat for your bigger child.

Perfect knee to knee coverage and a deep seat every time.

This carrier often intimidates babywearers,  who think that it is a lot more complicated than it really is.

We promise you! It really is THAT simple. No need to adjust every time you wear it either.

Have you found the Emeibaby love yet??

A Closer Look at Getting a WCRS.

paxbaby.com

What IS a WCRS:

A wrap conversion ring sling, is a piece of woven wrap cut, hemmed, and sewn into a custom ring sling.

Why go with a WCRS over a regular ring sling?:

With a wrap conversion, you get the added support of a woven wrap, with the ease of a ring sling.

What exactly does “slingified” mean?:

We use the term slingified, when we refer to sending a cut piece of woven wrap over to either Zanytoes, Sleeping Baby Productions, or Kalea Baby to be sewn into a ring sling.

A good wrap conversion ring sling (WCRS), is the perfect addition to any babywearer’s stash.

Small enough to fold up and tuck into any bag or purse, easy to use, and great for all sizes.

Let’s take a closer look at two of the “slingifiers” that we, at PAXbaby.com, have partnered up with.

PAXbaby.com

Paxbaby.com

Kalea Baby:

Sizing:

Small/Medium: 76″

Medium/Large:  80″

Shoulder: Pleated/gathered hybrid

Can be worn on either shoulder?: Yes.

How much wrap is needed?:  The Kalea shoulder needs 4.5″-5″ to create, so be sure to factor that number in.

paxbaby.com

paxbaby.com

ypaxbab.com

Zanytoes:

Sizing:

Small: 68″

Medium: 74″

Large: 80″

Shoulder: Pleated & Gathered

Can be worn on either shoulder: No. Please specify which shoulder.

“The Zanytoes standard shoulder is a wide gathered shoulder that can be spread wide across your shoulder and upper arm, or ‘scrunched’ for a custom fit. We also offer a symmetrical pleated shoulder for a narrower and more structured fit. You might prefer this option if you are petite.”

Emeibaby is coming to PAXbaby.com!

The moment I saw this carrier from Emeibaby, I knew that I wanted to see what it was all about.
How could something be both a woven wrap AND a carrier!?? It just seemed too good to be true.
My one pet peeve, usually, with a soft structured carrier (SSC)  is that they often feel bulky and can be hard to get properly adjusted.  I wanted to see if this new carrier would change my previous conceptions of SSCs.
The second the Emeibaby arrived, I tried it on right away with my tiny (then) 3 month old and my first impression honestly was,
“Wow, this is SO cool!!”
paxbaby
**Please excuse the cell phone photo, this was the VERY first time trying this carrier and I was excited to try it on.**
paxbaby
I had heard that it was a complicated carrier to use, and was surprised that it was anything BUT complicated.
I put the waist band around me high on my natural waist under my breasts, snapped it, tightened it, held  my LO against my chest, pulled the little bit of woven wrap under her bum and between our bodies to get a good seat, pulled up the arm straps, tightened them, buckled the clip behind me, and tightened the fabric through the rings to get a good, tight fit… Then reached in between our bodies and made sure she had a good seat and re-tightened. Snapped up the extra fabric, and tucked under the hood.
That was it.
It was just that simple!!
If my explanation confused you, check out the video below:
*Emeibaby says to tuck the extra piece of fabric under the waistband but I found that with a smaller baby, pulled between you and baby, it makes a really great seat just like you would have in a wrap or ring sling*

 

Because the wrap is fastened only to the middle portion of the waistband, you can easily bunch the fabric in to get a smaller seat for a smaller baby, or spread it out nice and wide to get a good wide seat for a bigger baby or toddler.

Perfect knee to knee coverage and a  deep seat every time.

“Thanks to its ring system it can be precisely adjusted to the baby’s size from birth (6,6 lbs) and is continuously adjustable to grow with the child. Once the carrier has been adjusted to the baby’s size the aluminium rings on the shoulder straps firmly clamp the fabric in place to maintain the desired position.” – Emeibaby
paxbaby
 With a lot of other soft structured carriers (SSCs) on the market today, you need to add a bulky infant insert, or to fiddle with snaps and such to get a perfect fit with an infant. I love that there is none of that with the Emeibaby, everything you need is in one carrier.
It is easy to use, light weight, and can be used both on your back and front.
**Though, like a wrap, we at PAXbaby.com recommend that your baby is sitting and has good head control before attempting a back carry. **
  I can easily use this carrier with a newborn, and yet quickly throw it on with my 2 year old, do a few adjustments and voila! Great fit with her as well.
No extras needed!
 I love how simple it is: you get the fit of a woven, with the ease of a SSC (soft structured carrier). Perfect hybrid and the best of both worlds!

This carrier fits adults from sizes XXS –  XXL, so not only can I get a great fit, but my husband can, too! He is not quite a wrapper yet, so he loves the ease of this carrier.
We just recently went on a family adventure the other day and he wore our two year old in this carrier.  He was able to get it on, and our toddler situated with no help from me! I had to remind him proper knee to knee positioning and that was it.
He quickly re-adjusted her seat, and we went off on our way. Both were comfortable for hours! She was up high and safe with daddy, and could see everything comfortably.
(He even carried my purse, too… now that’s a real man haha).

Let me address some of the worries/concerns I had previous to trying the Emeibaby Carrier:
Q: Are the rings difficult to adjust and do they slip while the carrier is in use?
A: NO! I was actually surprised at how EASY they are to adjust. The woven slides through the rings to tighten with ease, without slipping throughout the day. I was pleasantly  impressed with that.
Q: Was it difficult to put on straight out of the box? I heard that it is a complicated carrier to use.
A: Not at all. I wish I had taken a video of myself trying it for the first time. I really just opened the box, put it on, grabbed my baby and went with it. It was pretty easy actually. I really wish I could speak to the people that thought it was confusing and see what they had issues with. I cannot see a problem whatsoever!

Q: The shoulder straps cannot cross in the back. Will it still feel supportive after a few hours?
A: The straps are actually quite padded and supportive. I actually think that they are more padded than other SSCs I have tried. I was able to wear my Pumpkin all afternoon with no shoulder pain! That is awesome in my books. Still do wish that the shoulder straps could cross though.
 Q: Isn’t all that excess fabric going to look funny or be annoying after you are done tightening?
A: There are two options to tuck the excess fabric, under the hood and at the bottom of the carrier near the seat. The hood is actually way bigger than I initially thought and pretty much fully hides all excess woven material. When bunched at the bottom, it obviously is still in plain site, but for some reason does not bother me as much as I thought it would.
I hope answering these questions helped a bit. It is hard to invest in a new carrier that is not yet popular in North America. Not too many people have really heard of Emeibaby yet and there have not been a TON of photos, reviews or tutorials etc. out there. I hope that this changes soon because I really do believe that the Emeibaby is a super unique and cool product.
I  have used this carrier nearly every single day since I first tried it out, and that is the truth. I love throwing it in the car for quick uppies with my two youngest, wearing it around the house whilst chasing after the other kids, grocery shopping, and wherever else life leads us.  I also really love that it has a little inner pocket for you to stash your cell phone, keys and/or some cards/money.  SO handy not having to carry around a big bag all the time.
This is the perfect addition to any babywear-er’s stash and has the ability to last your entire babywearing career. Not many carriers, besides a trusty old woven wrap, can grow with your kids!
Pretty good investment if you ask me.

Beco Gemini vs. Soleil Part 1:

paxbaby

The Soleil is here, and boy, does it have people talking!

Everyone wants to know the dirt, so we are working on a few extra-special upcoming Beco blog posts dishing the goods on this brand new carrier.

Here’s a great chart that compares and contrasts PAXbaby.com‘s Beco Baby Carriers!

The Soleil versus the Gemini is a tough choice.

 It comes down to so much more than looks with this carrier, definitely weighing out the pros and cons is necessary. Wait, cons… what cons? haha

Things to consider:

How old is your baby?
How heavy is he/she?
Will this be your only carrier?
Will you be needing an infant insert?

Guess what is coming to PAXbaby?

Does JPMBB mean anything to you??

 je porte mon bebe, or JPMBB as they are known as, are the creators of an awesome new hybrid super wrap from France.

Translated to mean “I carry my baby”.

Intrigued yet??

paxbaby

These wraps are unlike most stretchy wraps on the market today, and are so supportive without being saggy or overly stretchy.

The JPMBB wrap is one of the only stretchy wraps that stretches in every direction: vertically, horizontally and diagonally giving you all around support and comfort.

paxbaby

paxbaby

The JPMBB can be used from birth until 30lbs (14kg), and can be used on your front, side and back.

Yes, you read correctly… this wrap can be used on your back.

The wrap itself is 5m long and 70cm wide, and made of a deliciously soft 95% cotton and 5% spandex and comes in a variety of beautiful shades and colors.

 

Which color would you choose??
Or… which colors?!?!?

Would you not love to wrap a squish in one of these soft and beautiful wraps!?

Like a woven wrap, the same “legs out” positioning is required, though you do not need to leave any slack when tying the wrap on like you do with a woven wrap.

Simply tie the JMPBB wrap on tightly, like the video  shows, and place baby inside using proper ergonomic technique.

Ta-da!!

Support like a woven, with a softness that is only second to your favorite t-shirt.

Winning combination if you ask me.

That is another great thing about this wrap, you can pre-tie it before you even need it, so no worry about dragging tails through a dirty parking lot or mall floor.

je porte mon bebe seems to have it all together!

Are you excited to try one??
