We'll be sharing some great Mother's Day Gift ideas starting this week,
and I'm thrilled to be able to start off this meme with a super giveaway!
If you've been around a bit, you know that Stokke is a well known Norwegian company, that has been in business since 1932,making items for baby,and baby's room, that are not only practical, they are ergonomic and gorgeous!
Their recent addition to the line of products is their new Stokke MyCarrier Cool carrier!
It is their first 3-n-1 carrier that is BREATHABLE!
When babies are young they need to be touched, held, talked to and smiled at often. Loving gestures reassure your baby and promote a strong bond between parent and child. The Stokke MyCarrier Cool is the perfect way to keep this connection.The Stokke MyCarrier Cool has the same unique design as the Stokke MyCarrier, but is made with breathable mesh fabrics. This reduces heat and moisture to keep both you and baby cool and dry for outdoor, active or warm weather use, which is especially beneficial down here in the muggy Southern Summer!
The Stokke MyCarrier Cool can be worn 3 different ways:
1. Facing inwards-From newborn (minimum 7.7 lbs and 21 inches) until your child can hold his/ her head unaided (about 4 months old). As you can see there are multiple buckles to adjust to make sure baby has the proper head and back support
2. Facing outwards - Only to be used once your child can hold his/her head unaided. Two buttons and a zipper can be opened, to lengthen the carrier.
3. Back carrying-When your child can sit unaided and is longer than 28 inches.and 33 pounds. The carrier is easily attached to the harness, and the buckles adjust for proper fit.
The Stokke MyCarrier Cool has a signature design, which ensures your baby is seated in the “Happy Hips” position while in the baby carrier, in the facing inwards position and back carrying position. This wide leg position provides optimal ergonomic support for the buttocks and thighs, which is important for the proper growth and development of baby´s hips.
This carrier is great, in that it can take you from newborn to age 3!
And just look at HOW many ways it supports your child:
The Stokke MyCarrier Cool uses the same breathable mesh technology used for many types of sportswear! So you know it WILL keep you and baby dry! Stokke uses only those textiles that are Oeko-Tex Standard 100 approved and certified free of harmful substances. This means that their textiles do not contain chemicals that are known to be unhealthy, and that are safe to touch baby´s delicate skin. European standards do tend to be higher than ours!Additionally, mesh is water and wind resistant; perfectly suited to warmer climates and active or extended use. And it's EASY to upkeep- you just remove the carabiners, then you can wash the carrier in your washing machine,(use detergent without bleach). Then gently spin-dry and stretch while wet to keep the original shape. Dry the carrier flat at room temperature. Then you just add the carabiners back on! See? Easy!
When you get a Stokke MyCarrier Cool you get all three components: the main harness with integrated hip belt, front carrier, and back carrier, all secured by double locking carabiners. AND you get a 3 year warranty! How great is that? The warranty covers the time you will be USING the carrier, not just the first year, like other carriers!
Now for the FUN part!
