The Pikkolo Baby Carrier is a hybrid baby carrier which combines the flexibility and versatility of mei tai baby carriers with the ease of quick-release buckles from that of more structured baby carriers. This is a structured baby carrier we can highly recommend for an ergonomic forward facing front carry. Additionally, the Pikkolo's unstructured waist and drawstring feature makes it possible to cinch the carrier narrower to enable small babies to ride legs-out or older infants to face forward comfortably. If your baby prefers facing forward, this is an excellent baby carrier for this purpose, and one of the only structured baby carriers we stock that conveniently allows for this position.
If you love the Ergo baby carrier but your little one prefers to look forward, the Pikkolo may be just right for you. Or, if the Baby Bjorn is your style of baby carrier but you are starting to feel uncomfortable (usually happens around 20 lbs!) then give the Pikkolo baby carrier a try. If you think the Baby Bjorn is something special, you don't know what your missing. This is one innovative design.
The Pikkolo features Cinching, Less Padding + Memory Foam.
The Pikkolo baby carrier by CatBird Baby is a great "buckle tie" or a mei tai baby carrier with buckles. The most innovative features of the Pikkolo baby carrier are it's adjustable "seat" and it's unpadded waist belt. And the memory foam shoulder straps are pretty nifty, as well.
We love the unique cinch mechanism on the bottom of the Pikkolo carrier for smaller newborn babies to sit comfortably or larger babies to sit facing forward. This cinching drawstring allows for a the narrowing or widening of the fabric between baby's legs. For a small or younger baby, this means you can position baby facing forward, should you choose to do so (or if your little one prefers this!). For an older baby, you can adjust the seat to allow for more coverage, making this a very comfortable baby carrier to use even with a toddler or 40 lbs child.
The unpadded, unstructured waist belt of the Pikkolo allow for the precise adjustment of the carrier's fit. This baby carrier ties on the waist "apron-style" and will fit both short-waisted and long-waisted body types well. This type of waistband is meant to be worn snug around your natural waist - not loose or low over top of the hips like the padded waistbands of similar style baby carriers. If you suffer from pulling your pants up all day with a "padded" style carrier, the Pikkolo may have your problem solved!
The shoulder straps of the Pikkolo are lightly padded with deluxe memory foam (this is same material high-end mattresses use on their pillow tops!). These are fabulously comfortable and shock-absorbent, yet surprisingly sleek and trim. This material warms with your body heat, conforming to your shoulders for a fit like no other. It really is incredibly comfortable!
Designed with the mei tai baby carrier in mind, the Pikkolo features are similar with it's multiple carrying positions and flexibility of strap placement. Even with lightly padded shoulder straps for the ultimate in comfort you can still cross the straps in front or back, or adjust the carrier back-pack style. With so many different carrying positions, it's EASY to get a comfortable fit with the Pikkolo.

The buckles of this carrier are so easy to use. They are easily adjustable. My husband is very much taller than I am (I come up to his shoulders) but we can easily adjust the straps in seconds to suit us. No learning curve. Baby is very comfortable in it and so is the carrier.Would you recommend this product to a friend? Without hesitation!
I just wish the material was a bit softer like the BabyHawk Mei Tai. Even though the manufacturer says that you can use the Pikkolo with a newborn, we found that it didn't support an infant's head as well as the BabyHawk Mei Tai.

Great carrier for every outting Review by LIEN
Quality Price Value
I had to read many reviews before deciding on this carrier. The biggest decision was how easy it was to put baby into it. It's as easy as wearing a backpack on the front of your body!! It's made of good quality fabric and very comfortable to wear. My husband and I have used it in the house and out while grocery shopping. It makes life so much easier when you can't be pushing a grocery cart & a stroller at the same time. (Posted on 12/13/10)Would you recommend this product to a friend? Without hesitation!
