EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

You'll love cuddling up to baby in the Cuddle Up Fox Ergonomic Hoodie Carrier. It can be worn in two ways and includes a removable fox head canopy hood. Unlike other carrier hoods, this one features a unique arched design to keep baby in full sight but still covered. This ergonomic seat supports baby's hips in the "M" position, providing knee-to-knee support with a naturally rounded back.

Wear the carrier with baby facing in or, when baby can sit up on his own, with baby on your back. Along with the canopy hood to provide sun protection, the carrier also features built-in padded head support, ideal for the smallest of babies. 

Parents will like the carrier's wide, padded shoulder straps that can be adjusted from 20 inches to 39 inches to accommodate different body frames and a growing baby. The wide waist belt is also adjustable, from 25 inches to 54 inches, and is designed to transfer weight to the wearer's hips for a more comfortable fit. There's even a hoodie-inspired pocket on the front for a parent's hands.

Why Is It Useful?

For the price, this is a good, basic baby carrier. We were a little surprised that it can't be used for outward-facing carrying, but for some parents, two positions might be all the functionality they need.

The fox design is really cute, but the fox hood doesn't make this baby carrier look baby-ish. The patterned design of arrows is used as an accent to the solid gray and is gender-neutral so that moms and dads can wear this.

Who It’s For

This baby carrier can be used with babies from 12 to 40 pounds.

What To Be Aware Of

There is a back buckle closure, but you fasten that before putting baby in the carrier.

In order to carry baby in the back carry position, you'll need two people - one person wearing the carrier and the other person placing baby in the carrier. You can't use the hood in the back carry position. 

We found the straps difficult to adjust but that could be because it takes time to break them in.

This is machine washable.

This is available exclusively at Walmart. An additional Cuddle Up with a teddy bear hood is also available and sold separately.
