International Baby Wearing Week: Catbird Baby Review & Giveaway
While attending a Blog Conference in Chicago last July, I had the privileged of meeting Beth from Catbird Baby at one of the parties. I loved how down to earth she was and that she started the company after making a few of her own carries. Catbird has added more great carriers in addition to the original, mei tai although the mission of creating functional and beautiful products has stayed the same.
I was so intrigued with the name of the company, Catbird, I just had to share in case anyone else was equally curious. There is short story called, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty written by James Thurber. In the story, they use the expression, “sitting in the catbird seat” which refers to an advantageous position. I think it is an adorable name since that is exactly how a child must feel when they are being worn.
One of the things I love about the Zephyr Pikkolo is that there are no bells and whistles. It’s nice to just have a carrier that is easy to figure out and put on. There are times when I don’t want to haul out the stroller and need to get in and out quick. Baby wearing takes practice but it helps to have a simple product to not only learn on but have for those quick needs. My sister had never used a baby carrier before and was able to figure it out and adjust it to fit her body in about 5 minutes.
Thanks to Catbird Baby, one lucky Cherry Blossom Love reader will win their very own Catbird Baby Pikkolo!
