BityBean is the amazingly compact carrier that folds up smaller than a child’s drink bottle - it weighs just 220 grams!
Keep it in the glovebox or your handbag for those times you end up carrying your child when you hadn’t expected to!
Bitybean is also the perfect carrier for travelling. It is so compact you can keep it in your hand luggage for wearing in the airport, keeping your hands free for shopping or carrying bags.
BityBean is also an ideal carrier for keeping on hand when your toddler usually walks....but runs out of steam and you end up carrying a heavy toddler in your arms. You might be past the stage of always carrying your child when you are out but want to be prepared for those carries in the supermarket, towards the end of a walk or doing the school pick up!
BityBean is comfortable and easy to adjust, with strong buckles on the waist and shoulder straps.
BityBean can be used on the front (inwards facing) from 3 months then on the back from when baby can sit up unassisted (about 6 months).
If you are using your BityBean with a sleeping baby or toddler, we recommend purchasing the optional sleeping hood.
Suitable for use in or near water! BityBean is made from quick-dry fabrics, which make it light to carry and ideal for use near water. No need to buy a dedicated water carrier when you can keep your BityBean in your car or bag for splashing about in at the beach or pool. Please only wear BityBean on your front near water and always ensure your child’s face is well clear of water if you are in the pool.

How does BityBean compare with other soft-structured carriers like Tula or Manduca?
It depends what you are after! Bitybean is by far the most compact, lightest weight carrier available. if you want a compact carrier for occasional use or for short carries, then BityBean is an excellent option. If you have a very tight budget, then Bity Bean is the best price. However if you are looking for a super comfortable carrier that you can comfortably wear for hours and hours every day, then we recommend something like a Tula or Manduca which has much more padding and support.

Our recommendation would be to keep a BityBean in your handbag or car for those occasional carrying or when space is really tight.
