We love the carrier! Even hubby commented on it being a good purchase :) It was a saving grace this weekend! I could put her in the carrier in the afternoons when she was a bit fussy and I needed to make supper. she even nodded off the one time, became really quiet and when I looked back her eyes were shut! :) HALLELUJAH!

My hubby and I both find our Ubuntu Baba super comfy - a great hiking trip in the berg and my toddler even decided to sleep on the hike which never happens! I carried her for about 2 hours and no discomfort at all. Love it!

My husband and I love the ubuntu. In fact we argue over who gets to carry baby! The best money I spent, most importantly it doesn't hurt the back and shoulders.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT ARE THE SHIPPING COSTS AND HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?

We offer free shipping nationwide and will deliver your carrier to your door within 2-3 working days. Please allow an extra 2-5 working days for farms or outlying areas.

WHAT IF MY TODDLER DOESN’T LIKE IT?

We offer a 30 day money back guarantee, provided the product is returned in ‘as new’ condition. Email us on info@ubuntubaba.com and we will arrange collection.

DO YOU OFFER A QUALITY GUARANTEE?

Our carriers come with a lifetime guarantee on all stitching and workmanship.

WHAT MAKES YOUR STAGE 2 CARRIER UNIQUE?

With many ways to adjust our Stage 2 carrier, we guarantee you’ll get a comfy fit and be pleasantly surprised at just how light your heavy toddler will feel! With a height adjustment zip, the option to wear the straps in an X or H, as well as perfect fit adjusters, you’ll be ready for any adventure your heart desires.

WHY HEMP?

Hemp is UV resistant and a great temperature conductor, keeping your toddler cool in hot weather and snuggly and warm during the winter months. Hemp fabric “wears in, not out” so your carrier gets softer and comfier, the more it’s worn. The farming of hemp also offers significant benefits for the economic and environmental sustainability of our planet as it grows rapidly and requires little water and no pesticides or herbicides.

CAN I WEAR MY TODDLER FACING OUTWARDS?

We do not recommend wearing your toddler facing outwards in our Stage 2 carrier, as they have not been designed to support an outward facing position, but rather the inward facing front or back carry positions.

DO YOUR CARRIERS FIT ALL SHAPES AND SIZES?

Our carriers are very easy to adjust to fit all body types and sizes, with extra long straps that can be neatly tucked away at the length needed.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO BREASTFEED IN YOUR STAGE 2 CARRIER?

It will take some practice, but yes! Please see our instructional video on how to breastfeed in our Stage 2 carrier.

WON’T I BE CREATING BAD HABITS IF I WEAR MY TODDLER FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME?

Absolutely not. Toddlers need just as much love and physical touch as babies do, to help them feel safe and nurtured, and even more so during the difficult teething months. This is what Ubuntu Baba Founder, Shannon McLaughlin has to say on the subject:
“Toddler wearing simply makes your life easier, creating a healthy sleep association whilst nurturing a loving bond between you and your toddler. All of that leads to a happy and confident child that understands that when they’re tired, they need to sleep.” Read Shannon’s full article on her personal experience with toddler wearing here.

WHERE ARE YOU CARRIERS MANUFACTURED?

Our factory is based in Retreat in Cape Town and we are proud to say that our products are all 100% South African manufactured.
