Heavy Baby? Tushbaby Will Save Your Back!

April 2, 2021

Tushbaby is a strap-free, ergonomic hipseat that evenly distributes your baby’s weight—so you can carry your little one longer and more comfortably. This strap is perfect for taking the baby’s weight off of your back and arms and is especially helpful for grandparents. You can literally carry the baby much longer with the Tushybaby than without one. What it is not is a regular baby carrier. It is more like a saddle. 

In addition, Black Baby Wearing Week this year is from June 13-19, 2021. So get your Tushbaby or wrap on before then. To find out more about Black Baby Wearing Week, check out Black Baby Wearing Week’s Instagram @BlackBabyWearingWeek.

  • Ideal for children 8lbs to 45lbs
  • Designed to fit 23 to 44-inch waist (add up to 24 more inches with the Waistband Extender)
  • Can be used for breastfeeding support
  • Machine washable

I found that the Tushbaby is great for going to places like the zoo, where a stroller is not only cumbersome but when you keep taking the child in and out of the stroller to view the animals or at the aquarium where you have to keep lifting them to see the fish. If you find yourself doing that, get yourself a Tushbaby. I keep it with me when caring for my grandchildren and it is helpful for grandparents who have arthritis too. Tushbaby is available on for $79.
