The Explore makes it easy to carry babies from 7-45lbs. Wear it 3 ways: front facing in, front facing out, or with baby on the back. No matter the position, you'll get an ergonomic fit with padded shoulders and wide waistbands to evenly distribute weight for any wearer.
Age/ Weight Range
7-45lbs/ 3.2-20.4kg which is from around newborn up to around 2 years of age depending on the height of your child. Note that most children will outgrow this carrier in height rather than by exceeding the weight limit, and, as all children are different, this may be when the child reaches 18 months or it might not be until they're over 2 years old!
3 carrying positions - front facing inwards, front facing outwards and back carrying. These positions are dependant on the developmental stage of your baby. They should be carried facing inwards on your front for the first 5 months. Once they are around 5 months AND have good head/torso control they can be worn facing outwards on your front. IMPORTANT - You should never let your baby sleep in the outwards facing position, it is for awake periods only. Back carrying is from around 6 months when your baby is able to sit unaided. Each position provides a natural, ergonomic position best for comfortable carrying that promotes healthy hip and spine development for baby
The Tula Explore has a thick, sturdy buckle waist band with one direction tightening. The two shoulder straps are thickly padded adjustable rucksack style straps with a small adjustable clip connecting them to ensure a good comfortable fit and keep the straps in place on your shoulders.
At carry my baby we have the Explore in two different fabric types, the printed cotton, and the linen.
The cotton option is 100% cotton and the linen option is 52% flax linen, 48% combed cotton. Both can be machine washed.
More about linen:
Naturally Cool Fabric
Linen, made from the flax plant, naturally keeps the body cool and makes snuggles enjoyable from season to season. It is combined with cotton to provide a much softer hand feel right out of the box. Both linen and cotton are durable, breathable, and biodegradable.
The Tula Linen Collection has a refined modern aesthetic that looks as cool as it feels. Two colors of threads are woven into a herringbone weave to create a subtle patten that gives the overall impression of one color. The colors featured in the collection are inspired by elements in nature. Made with 52% flax linen, 48% combed cotton.
What we love about this carrier...
Tula make some brilliant carriers - the only problem is deciding which one! The Explore is perfect if you'd like the option to face you baby outwards, and its thick cushioned straps and sturdy waistband mean carrying a much older baby is still comfy! Tula carriers are simple to use and have a nice, natural feel and design.
Tula was created in Poland in 2009 by mum of three children Ula Tuszewicka who wanted a stylish yet comfortable way to carry her children. The company has grown in size and popularity, and is now the sister company or Ergobaby with carriers being manufactured in both Poland and Mexico.
