Age/ Weight Range
7-45lbs which is from around newborn up to around 2 years of age depending on the height of your child - no insert required. 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, hip carry 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 3 months AND have good head control they can be worn to your side in the hip carry position. 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 Half Buckle has a thick, sturdy buckle waist band with one direction tightening. The two shoulder straps are tie on straps which are thickly padded but fan out to wider, unpadded long ties which are crossed on your back, crossed again under your babies bum then tied on your lower back.
100% cotton, machine washable.
What we love about this carrier...
Tula make some brilliant carriers - the only problem is deciding which one! The Half Buckle is perfect if you prefer crossed straps and the adjustability and close fit of tying the straps yourself. The hip carry option is great but so often overlooked in favour of facing outwards - hip carry is the best of both, your baby can see the world around them but they still get to snuggle in to you for some reassurance. Plus, 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.
