What makes the Hipster Smart 3D Baby Carrier "3D"? It has a built-in three-dimensional hip seat that ensures correct hip positioning for baby as well as absorbing the weight of the baby to make the carrier more ergonomic for parents.
There are six carrying positions you can use with this: facing in, facing out, and side carry with only the hip seat or facing in, facing out, and back carry using the shoulder straps. You'll need an infant insert, sold separately, when using the Hipster Smart with newborns in some positions.
You can unzip the removable front pocket to reveal a mesh panel that keeps baby cool during warmer months. This is also where you can store the included head cover to offer sun protection or nursing coverage.
There is also a large storage pocket under the hip seat so that mom and dad can bring along baby necessities and have them within hand's reach. Plus, you get a bottle pocket, an easy access phone pocket, an invisible credit card slot, a toy/pacifier loop, an extendable key ring, a change pad pocket, and another hidden extra storage pocket. A disposable changing pad is included.
Let's talk about some things we do like: all of the storage! (There were so many that some of them were actually difficult to find.) MiaMily really put some thought into what parents need when on the go, and effectively eliminated the need for a diaper bag when using the Hipster Smart. And whether you feel more comfortable with just the hip seat or want to use the shoulder straps, you have so many options for how to wear and carry your baby. Yes, the hip seat portion is a bit bulky, especially when the shoulder straps have been added on, but it can offer a little more support for you and baby.
The Hipster Smart can be used with newborns up to 48 months, or nine pounds to 44 pounds.
If you use the shoulder straps when carrying a newborn, you'll need an infant insert, sold separately.
