Mamapod Baby Carrier
The Mamapod wowed parent testers as an incredibly unique carrier with more functionality than any carrier they had EVER seen. At first glance, some testers told us that they felt a little intimidated since this is clearly a different kind of baby carrier, but once they checked out the instructions, which nicely break everything down into logical steps, they realized that there is actually little to no learning curve. This carrier works for just about any baby transportation situation you will find yourself in but then goes a step further by adding a support rod or “carrier monopod.” The extending rod allows you to take advantage of being in one spot for enough time to take the baby’s weight off and instead transfer it to the rod. None of our testers had ever seen anything like it and were clearly intrigued.
It should be noted that even after two months of testing we never reached a consensus about the make-or-break aspect of this feature. One feature that there was no equivocating on was the breathable mesh fabric. Parents told us that most carriers are too warm for wearing in the hot summer months, but Mamapod’s breathable mesh allows you and your child to get airflow while still being safely strapped in.
