Have you ever set out on a hike with your tyke and before you get to your destination they become tired, they don’t want to hike anymore and they just want to return to the car? It happens and then you’re left in a conundrum. Do you press on trying to bribe them along the way, press on making them suffer or do you turn around and call it quits? We had a couple of those situations during our hikes in Wyoming. On both occasions we weren’t familiar with the elevation gain and it ended up being too much for J-Man. Instead of turning around and heading back to the car or making him suffer by dragging him up the trail I pulled out the Bitybean and carried him.
The Bitybean is a convenient and lightweight child carrier that allows you to carry your tyke in front for infants or on your back for older tykes. Bitybean is designed for infants and toddlers over 3 months and weighing from 8 to 40 pounds. J-Man is bordering the maximum weight to carry but I didn’t notice that at all. It just felt like I was giving J-man a supported piggy back ride. On both hikes I had my backpack to carry and I needed to figure out a way to carry J-Man and my pack. I put J-Man on my back first and then my backpack on. I loosened the straps of my backpack all the way and put it on as I normally do and then adjusted the tightness around J-Man and myself. It worked perfect. J-Man was happy he didn’t have to hike anymore and we were happy that we didn’t have to return to the car and miss the gorgeous views ahead.
One of the views we would have missed out on had we not had the Bitybean.
The Bitybean weighs only 8 oz and fits into it’s own stuff sack. It’s so compact that it takes up very little room in your pack making it very convenient to carry. It’s perfect not only for hiking but as an everyday carrier for your tyke. Use it for shopping, the Farmer’s Market, amusement parks, traveling or anywhere else you need to carry your tyke. The compact size makes it easy to stash in a purse or bag. I leave mine in my car making sure I have it at all times so that I can throw it in a bag or pack when we head out.
Another great feature about the Bitybean is that it can be used in water. It is made of nylon and polyester so it dries very quickly and doesn’t absorb water weighing it down. It is recommended that you wear your tyke in front when using it in water so you can see them at all times.
In October 2012 the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association, the internationally recognized organization, honored Bitybean with a 2012 Innovation award. That’s pretty cool!
This is one of the most economical carries on the market with a price tag of only $54.00. It’s worth every penny and you will get years of use out of it.
This carrier is for anyone who has a tyke that needs/wants to be carried sometimes or all the time. You and your tyke will love it!
