The Baby Hawk

by Vicky

I don’t really consider myself a baby-wearing Mama, since I don’t wear my babies for long periods of time. But I do have several slings, and they have all served their purposes: a Baby Bjorn for the brand new, uncurled baby phase, a pouch sling which was great for rocking my daughter to sleep, and a Baby Hawk mei tei. And I looooove my Baby Hawk. Here’s why:

You can custom design your very own Baby Hawk. There are 17 strap colour choices, and dozens of accent fabrics to choose from, which makes literally hundreds of colour combinations possible! The design centre lets you play around with different options too!

It goes up to 40lbs! That’s a lot of baby, or a lot of child if you’re so inclined to carry your 3 year old on your back. I tried it once recently, lasted all of 5 minutes before he wanted to get out!

The padded headrest can be folded down when your baby is old enough to support his/her head.

You can wear your baby on your front, or your back.

It’s light weight, and folds up easily to store in the car or backpack.

Baby Hawk has also recently come out with the Oh Snap, which is a new soft structured carrier that features the same great style as the traditional Baby Hawk.

You can find the Baby Hawk at the Extraordinary Baby Shop, which is where I got mine, or order your very own custom designed one directly from the website. The traditional carrier retails for about $99, and the Oh Snap $140.

Vicky is the mom to 3.5 year old son named Joel and 11 month old daughter named Mieka. You can read her blog at blog Some Kind of Wondermom.

  1. Mei teis are so versatile, they are definitely my favourite all purpose carrier and the one I recommend everyone have! I’m a big fan of the back carry and love how comfortable it is to carry a baby/toddler for long periods of time.

  2. I love mine. Love it. We have a Kozy Karrier from Milkface. What is great is both the husband and I can wear.

  3. I have many carriers and also LOVE my Babyhawks! Babywearing is just so awesome and we take our carriers everywhere. We took a Babyhawk to Disney and simply wore our three year old when she got tired. No messing with ridiculous and unwieldy strollers! 🙂

  4. The Baby Hawk was our workhorse carrier. I used it hours a day to tromp all over downtown. So easy to put on and so cuddly for snuggling. Nice and compact on the bus. My husband loved it too — we had a nice manly brown version.

    They hold their value too! Ours got lots of use but I was able to sell it on eBay for $55.

    Wow nice to know they still retain their value. At this point I can’t even fathom parting with mine, I’m sure I will one day though 😉
