Big Changes!

Maxine is turning three soon so we got her a bed as an early birthday gift! She loves all the Peppa Pig things and actually slept in her bed for most of the night Tuesday night. 



Once I put the sheets and comforter on the bed, Maxine did not want to get out. Fingers crossed that she continues to love her bed! 




Happy early birthday, Pep ❤️.

Review: Babylonia Bei Dai (BB Tai)

Babylonia Bei Dai (“BB Tai!”) So we all know that I really enjoy Babylonia. I’ve reviewed the BB Sling AND the BB Slen before. Now thanks to Marsupial Mamas, I got to try the bei dai FINALLY!!  I did not get to use the infant insert that comes with it, but now they have a nifty new way to cinch the panel (Jan 2017).  Right now, I will tell you about using the Pineapple bei dai with a 30 lbs 3 ft tall toddler.

So, I am 5’5, 250 lbs, and 29 weeks pregnant. I could tie this bei dai off in the back with a front carry AND I could finish it off tied Tibetan. This is a HUGE DEAL. I come across so many carriers that I can’t even buckle or tie off because they are too small and this bei dai just made me feel like it was made for me. Over the three weeks we had it with us, we used it a lot.

I mean, look at that fit! Maxine is THREE FEET TALL and it fits her this well! She was so comfy in here. Brittany with Maxine in a front carry facing the camera. Maxine is centered in the carrier and Brittany is holding one of her feet. There are green trees in the background.

This carrier is made from Babylonia BB Slen fabric. The panel is Pineapple and the straps are Black Beans. There is not any padding, but it is pretty comfortable because of the wrap straps that are able to be spread. We did mostly back carries with the bei dai because front carries are not as comfortable right now with my bump in the way.  The front carries we did do though? Very nice. I know that without my bump it would be very comfortable because the carrier sits where I normally like it. Back carries were a dream! We back carried in the Babyloni Bei Dai daily.

  I think this carrier would be great for all babywearers and from little babies up through toddlerhood! The infant insert makes it useful for small babies. It looks pretty neat! If you love bei dais, you will DEFINITELY love this! It’s more comfortable than the Fidella Bei Dai (“flytai”)  in my opinion.
