Kozy really is the gold standard!

Posted

Pros: Super supportive, stunning, well made

I did not have this specific print but I did purchase a Kozy Carrier.  I must say it is the most amazing mei tai or SSC that I have tried.  In fact, I prefer it over a SSC!  It's very supportive, well made, and has some of the most gorgeous fabrics available.    I love the pocket that can be added to the front - very non descript (unless you want it to "pop").  If I "had" to come up with a negative it would be that this is made of good weight canvas so it's a little stiff at first but with use (especially a wash with dryer balls...) it'll soften up quickly and it a bit bulky when folded up.  That being said, I found my SSC to be...

The mei tai that helped start the mei tai revolution

Posted

Pros: Comfortable, works for a wide range of ages

Cons: May be overlarge for some babies, early on

I tested my first Kozy sometime in 2003 (the date is a guess) or possibly early 2004. It was something of a revelation for me, the whole concept of mei tais, and one of the first children I wore in it weighed 55 pounds and was 6 years old...and we were both comfortable. I'd been wearing babies and trying new slings and carriers since 1993, and ten years in, this completely changed everything I knew about babywearing.   My first tester, I reluctantly loaned to my cousin in the spring of 2004, reluctantly because I knew we would be trying to get pregnant soon, and I desperately wanted to have it for my own daughter.    I never got that carrier back. My cousin loved...

Stood the test of other carriers and 4 kids.

Pros: Versatility and Durability

  I've tried the Moby wrap, Ultimate Baby Carrier, as well as pouch slings and Baby Bjorn.  My Kozy carrier has been my favorite overall carrier after 4 kids.  I find myself reaching for it the most.  The Moby is so much fabric that it can make me hot, and tends to take up my entire diaper bag.  The Bjorn had buckles that I found cumbersome.  I LOVE that once my baby falls asleep in the Kozy, I can just untie it and gently lay baby down without waking him up!  The construction of it is excellent, and holds up beautifully wash after wash (and baby after baby).  But I don't find myself having to wash it much since the fabric I chose hides spit up...

Kozy Carrier mei tai

Posted

Pros: easy to use, durable, adjustable

Cons: on mine the straps are a little shorther than I would like.

I bought my Kozy Carrier used at a consignment sale. I have used with with my baby from when he was about 2 months old. I would roll the bottom of the carrier up twice so that he would fit in it properly. I love that this carrier fits small babies up to toddlers. It is quick and easy to get this carrier on front or back. I also like that it is very adjustable to your body. You simply tie the straps how you want them and done! The only drawback to this carrier that I've found is the straps on mine aren't quite long enough for me to tie in back when I wear my baby on the front. I would recommend this carrier to my friends.

Love my Kozy!

Pros: Comfortable for myself and baby, easy to use, durable, wide variety of designs

I absolutely LOVE my Kozy mei tei! It's very comfortable for myself and baby, there are several different ways to wear it and it's easy to put on with a little practice. (It comes with a booklet of instructions for some different carries and there are many more on their website.) There are lots of fabrics to choose from as well as a few different colors for the straps. You can even add a pocket, which I've used for a pacifier, burp rags, my phone, etc...it's actually quite roomy. This is a very durable carrier, and very versatile! I carried my son in it as early as 5 weeks old, and he still loves it at 7 months! My husband even carries him in it. If you get a girly fabric for a...

My favorite baby carrier

Posted

Pros: use from birth to toddlerhood. comfortable. front and back use.

Cons: learning curve

I love my kozy carrier.  I purchased it for my first child, who is now 8.  I've most recently used it for my littlest child, who is a few days shy of her 1st birthday.  8 years of frequent use and it still looks great!  I was able to babywear in this from birth by rolling the bottom up slightly, and used it a ton when my son was a toddler, even up to 4 years old I could comfortably carry him on my back in my kozy.  I also run a daycare and have used my kozy for wearing infants in my care over the least 6 years I've been open.  It fits very well in my diaper bag.     I'm a a plus sized mama and the straps on my kozy were made a bit longer for...

Most comfortable and supportive carrier out there!

Posted

Pros: Supportive, comfortable, fits everyone, easy to use

I have nothing but awesome things to say about the kozy carrier.  You can use it with your newborn or toddler! The kozy carrier is extremely easy to use. You just tie it on and go! Very supportive. You will always know your child is secure.  Kozy carrier offers XL straps to ensure that everyone can use a kozy.  I have worn the kozy for hours at a time and always felt comfortable. You'll never be disappointed with a kozy. :)

Love our Kozy

Posted

Pros: comfort, versatility, durability

We *love* our Kozy Carrier. The padded straps are super comfortable even with a toddler, and I have loved the versatility of tie straps versus clips/snaps, as some other carriers offer.  When dd was tiny, I felt the tying straps offered the perfect fit for the ultimate cuddle factor.  Now that she's a toddler and I'm expecting, I can tie the straps above my belly.  This has been our favorite carrier for long walks and outings since we purchased it- the comfort can't be beat.  I also have really appreciated both the front pocket and the pocket at the end of the strap.  They provide enough room for the essentials for a walk or short outing, leaving my hands free....
