Did you notice? We slipped some Babyhawk brand “Oh Snap” carriers into our baby carrier section!
The Babyhawk brand is a very respected little company in California, ran by the mom who founded it. They’ve been making mei tai carriers for years and they just launched the new Oh Snap. We were among the first to get it in store and currently there are 8 colors here for immediate shipment. (Scroll down for UPDATED INFO)
The OhSnap fits babies from 15-45 pounds using either a front carry or backpack position. It is comparable to a Babyhawk Mei Tai in its style and design, except there are no long straps to tie, and it offers good waistbelt support for carrying older children or for carrying a child for long time periods such as hiking or day trips. The adjustability is meant to fit a women’s size 0 to 22. The carrier is not meant to be used with newborns, and no, there aren’t any snaps on it, just buckles.
Updated August 11 2010 – The Oh Snaps are getting popular! We now have them in 5 solid colors and 20 fabric prints. These are in-stock items, no waiting. The solid color carriers are black, espresso, steel, charcoal, and caramel.See photos of the fabric print choices below. the only one not pictured yet is the Apple viceroy. Remember, if you have a small baby, the regular Babyhawk is right for you, the Oh Snap is only for older babies, like one year olds and toddlers. you can begin using it with a baby who is sitting up and weighs 15 pounds, but really the carrier design is optimized more for a larger baby than that. We do have one OhSnap baby carrier available to try out in our physical store, but the rest of our supply is in the shipping location so it is better to order online.
