So, I was a little bit hesitant about the Red Castle Baby Carrier when we first saw it at a trade show. I love a good sling and think that Mei Tais are just fantastic, so I couldn’t imagine another carrier that would wow me…I couldn’t have been more wrong!
The Red Castle Baby Carrier just makes sense and is amazingly versatile as well. It takes the basic premise that the most comfortable and natural way to carry your child is on your hip and then adds the support that those of us who have ever gone backpacking have known forever – to move the support weight to your waist and not your shoulders (unlike other popular carriers).
So, while you are carrying your child on your hip their weight is being supported on your waist with a cushioned waist belt. What gets even better is that you can switch hips WHILE wearing your kid and you can even nurse in the Red Castle. And yes of course – just like the other big boys on the market – you can also have your child face outward when they are ready – but when they get bigger, turn them back around and have them on your hip yet again.
Bottom line – good thing that I can admit when I’m wrong…this is a carrier worth having!
