The Bitybean is a child carrier for little ones and even not so little ones. When Doug Hartwell became a dad he found himself wishing for a lightweight carrier that could handle not only a baby but a toddler as well. Doug put his engineering skills to use and made his wish come true with the invention of the Bitybean.

Thoughtfully designed and cleverly engineered to carry babies as young as 3 months old and children up to 40 pounds, the Bitybean weighs just 8 ounces and folds up into an 8 x 3 inch roll. But don’t let its size fool you. Doug enlisted the help of a backpack maker to load this compact carrier full of fit and function. In addition to being ultra-lightweight, breathable and fast-drying, the Bitybean is strong and durable. It can be worn multiple ways as a front pack or backpack and is easy to adjust for children of different ages and stages as well as caregivers of all shapes and sizes.

If only the Bitybean had been around when my youngest daughter was little. Long after she learned to walk, her favorite word was “uppy.” As much as I wanted to pick her up, constantly carrying her put strain on my body. Infant carriers were just as the name suggests—made for infants. Backpacks that could support her weight were bulky. The Bitybean is the solution I never had.
