Beco Ergonomic Baby Carrier Info

beco carriers australia

Beco is the original colorful modern soft structured baby carrier. We created Beco to give parents a design conscious and eco-friendly alternative. As a company we are committed to creating products that are practical, well-made and long-lasting as well as lovely to look at.
Before anybody else had applied a bold colorful look to a modern baby carrier, Gabby Caperon, an avid athlete, designer and fun loving parent, was patching together the first Beco Baby Carrier prototype from things she found around her home.
Born in 2005, Beco Baby Carrier Inc started by creating hand-crafted one-of-a-kind baby carriers and has since grown into a modern enterprise with a full line of award-winning products. Distribution of our products can be found all across Northern America as well as more than 30 countries around the world. Beco baby carriers have been featured and praised in many various printed and online media including the Fit Pregnancy, Mothering, Parenting, Babytalk, Kiwi, Pregnancy & Newborn, OC Family Green Child Magazine and Canadian Family.

Top 4 Baby Carriers
"Charlie loves it. He stayed in the back carry position, no fuss, for two and a half hours. It's simple to put on for both front and back carries, and very easy to adjust. It folds down super small for portability. It works over a winter coat." - Canadian Family

You have a new baby on the way! What are some of your must-haves for new parents?
"This is a fun one... As most moms have learned, there's a lot of crap out there that leaves us wondering why we have certain things lying around the house, let alone why we even registered for them in the first place. In the spirit of keeping it simple (this time round), I'm gonna go with 3 things: 1st - a Safe, Reliable, Easy to Operate + Easy on your Body stroller/car seat system. We're going with the Orbit Stroller Travel System. It's got a big price tag, but after having been through my share of snap-n-go systems with the first kid, this is the way to go. Not to mention that I'll be saving money (and my back) in the long run. 2nd - a Good Carrier. Speaking of back-saving goodies, this is a biggie. I'm not a fan of slings because of the asymmetric way they force you to hold the baby. My pick is the BECO Baby Carrier. Infant to 45lbs all in one system. And it's organic! 3rd - Good Boob Pads." - Zoe Organicis

Fit Pregnancy Buyers Guide 2010
"Get a leg up Beco Butterfly Carrier, The Beco Butterfly carrier comes in hip fabrics but, even better, provides lumbar support for you and comfort for your baby: His legs straddle your body, rather than dangling willy-nilly. Wear him on front or back, facing your body. Available in 10 styles made from organic cotton. 7 to 45 pounds."" - Fit Pregnancy

Newly Wed, Newly Bred!
"Beco is one of the biggest names on the market when it comes to baby carriers. Good baby carriers, that is! The other is Ergo. Many, many parents find themselves looking for an excellent carrier, and try to choose between the two.

Safety Tips

As with any type of baby carrier, always inspect your Beco Baby Carrier for damage before using and follow all instructions. Never perform any task that could be dangerous with your child in the Beco Baby Carrier. Use common sense! Always double check that the buckles are connected properly. Never unbuckle the waist belt while the baby is in the carrier. By purchasing this product, you acknowledge that the Manufacturer or Distributor accepts no responsibility for injury/damage due to the use/misuse of this product. Your child's safety is your responsibility. Be sure you have help getting your baby into and out of the Beco Baby Carrier until you become comfortable with it. If you are starting out with babywearing, do so over a soft surface such as a bed, sofa or carpeted floor covered with a blanket.

Please observe the following while wearing your baby:
Please support your baby with a hand or two while you and your baby are getting used to the sling. You and your baby will become more comfortable in time and you'll be able to free one or both of your hands. Please, DON'T GIVE UP! Babywearing takes practice just like all other parenting tasks. You can make the process easier by making sure that baby is fed, rested and happy before you try the carrier the first few times. Also, be sure to pull the top rim of fabric up to cover the entire back of your baby to avoid a "backdive." Never wear your baby when cycling or riding in the car. While cooking at the stove, use only back carry position. A sling doesn't substitute for a car seat. When bending, please bend at the knees, not at the waist, and hold the baby with one hand while reaching with the other. Never drink HOT beverages when wearing baby, although your sling will come handy for eating, especially in restaurants.
