Designed and made locally in New Zealand, the Pouch Pack features all natural fabric and 100% wool padding. The original design is suitable for newborns through to toddlers 2 - 3 years old. The new Front-facing option has a smaller body to the pack and therefore a lower weight and age limit of up to 2 years or 15kg. A larger Toddler pack will be available late 2016.
Features of this Baby Carrier
Environmentally friendly- Made from 55% hemp and 45% certified organic cotton, a naturally UV resistant and anti-bacterial fabric.
Best position for baby- The specially designed seat of the pouch means small babies are positioned with their knees higher than their hips (froggy position) – keeping the weight off their spine and hips
Comfort - Wide shoulder pads distribute weight, with the unique all-natural wool shoulder padding ensuring comfort. The weight is on your hips rather than the shoulders.
Newborns get plenty of support due to the ease with which you can vary the height of the back panel, and the double layer of fabrics. An opening zip allows you to adjust the height of the back to give baby more or less support as they need.
Ergonomic design - The carrier feel like another item of clothing, allowing you to cosy up to baby unhindered. Now you can easily include them in daily activities and even go for long walks!
Zipped pocket on the waist band allows you to keep your keys and phone on hand. Note the Front facing version does not have a key pocket, please tell us if you require a clip on pocket.
Portable - Folds in to a small hip bag so is perfect for when toddlers want to walk for themselves for a while but need to be carried home.
Standard pack standardly fits size 10 to 16 (waist measure 77cm to 114cm). We are happy to make the waist and/or shoulder padding the right size for you, fabric availability permitting, just select your custom fit.
Gentle wash on wool cycle -purchase Shoulder strap protectors, to save on wear and tear as baby is likely to mouth the fabric.
Note: While predominantly a front or back carrier, the Pouch Pack can be rearranged for use as a side-carrier.
*The Pouch Pack was originally named the Puku Pouch. Puku is pronounced pook-ew. It literally means "tummy" in Maori.
