OUR EXPERIENCE WITH THE BABY TULA TODDLER CARRIER

As a full-time travel family, we do a lot of walking, so our little guy gets tired from time to time.

Although we love our Zoe Stroller, it gets annoying, dragging it up and down the stairs to go for a walk, so having a toddler carrier is essential for us.

Baby Tula Toddler Carrier Review: What we like about the Tula Toddler Carrier

Babywearing is the way to go. Carriers are not just for travel.

You can wear your baby around the house while doing the laundry, cleaning, and even at the store while running errands.

They’re perfect for a quick run to the store, you don’t have to deal with a cart, or your hands are free.

Comfortable

My favorite thing about the Baby Tula toddler carrier is how comfortable it is. I’m not sure what happened, but it seems like our 2-year-old suddenly got really heavy, and carrying him isn’t as easy as it used to be.

This carrier is perfect for when he gets a little whiny and wants to be held. It doesn’t feel like I have a 20-pound toddler on my back, it just feels like an empty backpack.

If you have a toddler that doesn’t like to walk and you don’t want to drag around a stroller, the Baby Tula toddler carrier is the way to go.

Designs/Patterns

I absolutely love the different colors and patterns they have to choose from. There is something for everyone, even cool designs that dads will love.

My favorites are the leopard print and tie-dye. There so many other designs and colors to choose from, so show your personality with your carrier.

Shoulder Pads

You may think this is small, but my favorite thing about this carrier is the padded should straps. They feel like pillows on your shoulder. It’s a welcome relief from the straps that just dig into your shoulders.

Baby’s Leg Position

There were a few complaints about how wide this carrier is for your little one’s legs. I love the positioning of our son’s legs because it opens up his hip flexors and keeps him in a good position as he continues to grow and develop.

As you get older, you realize how important it is to continue to stretch your hip flexors. You’ll end up still and sore like me if you don’t stretch. Of course, kids are young and limber, so having their legs open isn’t an issue.

Waist Buckle

I love the length of the waist buckle. Their buckle extends to 61 inches, whereas other brands only extend to 49 inches. This can make a difference for moms and dads who need the additional length.

Personally, it’s usually hard to get a comfortable tight fit around my waist because of my hips. I didn’t have any issues with getting this carrier to fit my waist and hips.

Baby Tula Toddler Carrier Review: What we didn’t like about the Tula Toddler Carrier

No product is perfect, especially when it comes to something that differs based on someone’s body type and personal preferences.

Is the Tula Toddler Carrier Worth it?

The Baby Tula Toddler carrier is absolutely worth it!! We no longer bother taking our Zoe stroller, all we need is our carrier and diaper bag, and we are good to go.

Honestly, if you are considering buying a toddler carrier, go for it, what do you have to lose? It makes getting this done a lot easier, especially if you have a little one that likes to be close to you.

COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT BABY TULA TODDLER CARRIERS

Our goal is to help parents find the best toddler gear for your family. So to help answer more of your questions, here are some of the most asked questions about the Baby Tula toddler carrier.

How do I clean my Tula toddler carrier?

One of the things that I love about the Tula carriers is that they are all machine washable. The instructions that come with the carriers are straight forward.

They recommend using a damp cloth to spot clean with warm water. I recommend machine washing your Tula baby carrier, only when needed. When washing, be sure to use cold water with mild detergent.

Once the carrier is washed, do not place it in the dryer. Allow it to air dry, so you can have your Tula carrier for years to come. Well, at least until your little one outgrows it.

Can you baby wear a 2-year-old?

Absolutely, you can wear your toddler until they outgrow the preschool carrier, which can hold 70 pounds.

There is nothing wrong with wearing your kids. Some studies show how valuable it is to babywear. 

What if my toddler outgrows the carrier?

The great thing about Baby Tula is they have another carrier for kids who have outgrown the toddler carrier. Their Baby Tula Preschool Carrier can accommodate kids up to 70 pounds.

Is Baby Tula the best toddler carrier?

I can’t call it the best toddler carrier, but of the two we have tried, it is our favorite. I will say that opinions will differ greatly, but both my wife and I love this carrier, which usually doesn’t happen.

Normally we would buy separate carriers because our preferences are different but now that we have the Baby Tula Toddler Carrier we don’t need an extra one.
