We are so excited about this award-winning baby carrier. The Scootababy is designed specifically for carrying a child on your hip, and everything about the design points to the most comfortable and simple side carrying possible! You can wear it on either shoulder and pop the child in and out so quickly, with just one thing to pull every time, nothing to unbuckle or re-adjust each time. The Scootababy carrier is made in the US and is machine washable. There is nothing like it, tested so carefully for perfect side-carrying comfort!
Recommended age range – about 5 months to 3 years
User photos of the Avery and Jacob Beco prints just to show the colors better.
Pardon the homemade quality of these photos, but we wanted to make this available right away even if the photography isn’t world class.

Ok, here we go. Opening the Beco box
Unfolding the Butterfly 2 partway with the pretty side down and all the straps showing
Flip it over and unfold the headrest / sleeping hood. It arrived attached with 2 snaps to the carrier body and a choice of snaps on each longer strip attaches the hood to each shoulder strap. The sides of the hood are elasticized now, so this was really responsive of Beco and will make it much more usable in the real world.
Close up of the Emma print . Check out the exciting little “custom edition” label right above the usual Beco logo. The dots on each side of the custom label are where the sleeping hood snaps on, but I took that off for this photo.
Flip it over and unbuckle the carrier body from the shoulder straps to reveal the infant insert inside. It attaches at the top of the carrier with smaller buckles. See both buckled, see one unbuckled and pulled back, then see both unbuckled to reveal all sorts of safety and proper use info
OK, this next picture leaves the carrier exactly as above, but the angle shows you how the bottom of the infant insert attaches. see the velcro? There are two fat velcro strips running vertical under all that writing, and the base of the infant insert is a fat horizontal peice of velcro. Together, this means you can adjust the height of the Butterfly insert to wherever you want it, eventually pulling it out entirely.
But then, what of the little buckle on the carrier body? If baby is 15 pounds and you don’t need the infant insert, what becomes of the stray buckle?
You hide it in the stretchy little sleeve on the strap right next to it
Hope this helps!
The Butterfly 2.0 is here on our Berkeley shelves!
Shown above in their redesigned packaging: Jacob, River, Mia, Ethan, Sara, Ava, Trinity, Carnival. Of course, we also have the solids, Olivia, Avery, and Emma.
Lots of Emma in the batch of photos I’ll blog next.
Edit Oct 5 – Arriving on Tuesday Oct 7 are more Avery and River, which had been sold out, and a new color, Anaya, which is now showing on the store page.
En route today and just now opened up for orders, we have the re-designed Beco Butterfly Carrier in 10 prints and 2 solid colors, and 5 of those prints were custom made for our store! We chose the custom fabrics because they were favorites in older versions of Beco Carriers and we wanted to bring them on board for the version 2.0
The main new feature of this design is that the included infant insert is now totally removable!
Homemade photos of all colors will be blogged later this week
Edit: detailed photos of the whole carrier at the first Emma’s unboxing
