Introducing Bitybean – The Most Travel Friendly Baby Carrier I Own

When Moreaya was a newborn, I wore her constantly.  Here I was, a SAHM with a new baby and a 19 month old that didn’t like not sharing attention with her new baby sister.  Not only was I taking care of them all day, but still had to do clean, cook, and laundry – oh the laundry!

And when we went out of the house there was no possible way I could have handled both of them, at those tender ages, without babywearing.  It was my lifesaver inside and outside of the house in those early months and continues to be!

I didn’t start babywearing Sophia until she was already walking.  She’s always been a super independent child so she wasn’t totally happy hanging out on back when she could be walking, getting into everything.  Moreaya, on the other hand, was worn from very early on and she still loves it to this day.  One of my favorite times to wear her now is especially when we’re out of the house.  Whether she’s a bit lazy, or just really wants to be in my arms, she almost always asks for me to carry her.

But, she’s getting big!  So, I try to always have a baby carrier in the car, but honestly I can’t take them with us everywhere we go because even folded the most compact way I can, they’re still quite cumbersome to take along.  Until I found… Bitybean!

I have fallen quite head over heels with this Carrot Orange Bitybean carrier {that I was sent free for review} – easily the most travel friendly baby carrier I own.  I can literally fit it into my coat pocket…

I don’t carry it in my pocket often, but I can.  The reason this is so significant is because I don’t always know when Moreaya is going to want to be carried.  So being able to have our Bitybean with us at all times, no matter the space constraints is such an advantage to this carrier!

The Bitybean carrier comes in 4 fun colors:  Carrot Orange, Lime Green, Sky Blue, and Sand Gray.  It folds up easily… no magic tricks to get it back in the pouch, weighs 8 oz, and can be used with children from 3 months {head control} up to 40lbs!

It’s also super cool, which makes it a great baby carrier for Summer months and when you’ll be in shallow water as the polyester and nylon fabrics dry quickly.

The reason the carrier is so small is because it does lack the super padding that a lot of carriers have.  For that reason, I won’t be selling off my other carriers any time soon, but will definitely carry the Bitybean along when we’re traveling!  Although the carrier doesn’t have as much padding, once you get a good fit and have all the straps pulled snugly, it’s actually quite comfortable in both the front and back carries.

Bitybean offers detailed instructions on how to wear your baby in both the front and back carry options.

At only $54, Bitybean is priced just right to be an add-on carrier to any babywearing stash {large or small}.  To me, it is totally worth the price tag knowing that I always have a carrier available when Moreaya gets just a bit too heavy to carry – or I want my hands free while still keeping her close!

    I love that this just folds up so conveniently. I’ve used our Seven Sling in the same fashion, but my boy is quickly outgrowing the Seven Sling and the Bitybean would be a great replacement!

    This is probably the smallest folding carrier I’ve seen! That’s amazing! I love the price point on this and how simple it appears to be to use!

  3. Meghann K says

    I didn’t realize how handy a small carrier would be until I started packing my diaper bag for the first time – yikes! This looks like a great leave-in-the-bag-just-in-case solution. Thanks for the review.

    I love how small it folds up to. I hate carrying a diaper bag and often just stick a diaper and wipes into a pod. I bet I could fit this in my pod if I take out one diaper (I normally carry two). That is awesome!. And the price is great too. Could easily be a baby shower gift (and gateway into baby wearing).

    Wow! I love the idea of such a compact carrier! Especially when you have multiple children who might want to be worn! I have a 11mo old who is usually worn and a three year old who occasionally on long walks or trips wants to be worn for a while. This would be perfect to take a long as a second carrier (probably to transfer the baby into and then use a sturdier SSC or wrap for the three year old) Thanks for the review!

    This is brilliant! How close to the weight limit is your daughter? My kids are huge and so comfort near the upper limit is important for me.

  7. Katrina Smith says

    I love how it folds up and would be great to use on vacations when you don’t want to take one that takes up so much space!

  8. Janice Auna says

    This is really nice. I like how light weight and small it is. I hate trying to stuff big bulky wraps into a diaper bag. Would be fun to win and use this one :)

  9. Cathy says

    it is great to see a really affordable travel carrier option. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it for everyday use but when you need one in a pinch, it looks awesome! Yay babywearing!

  10. jennifer v. says

    How handy and budget friendly. Not being easily folded and stored is one of my contentions with other carriers. I like that the bright colors as well, easy to find! This seems like a good option for traveling, takes up less space.

  11. Tara says

    I love this carrier is so compact. It would be great to leave in my husbands car, so he has one less thing to remember when taking the baby.

  12. Kimberly says

    This looks like a great extra carrier for travel. You never know when a blow out or something will happen in a carrier, so a spare is super handy. I do wish the back came up a little bit higher. It looks like it could offer a little bit more upper back and head support, but for the price and the size it looks good.

  13. krystal rivera says

    this one is a very simple carrier which makes for a good carrier when on the go or in a rush! i would depend on this one during important days

  14. says

    I wish the seat were wider for better knee to knee support, carriers should reach from knee to knee. However, I like that this is a multi-use ish carrier as it is good for water wearing as well.

  15. Mary Schuh says

    This is an awesome carrier! I love that it can fold up to be so compact! Whenever I take our Ergo out, or if I take our son out of it, the Ergo is a pain to carry out. This would be so great! Your little girl looks like she is loving it!

  16. casey says

    this carrier seems great to keep in my purse. i also get caught out without a carrier relatively often, and would love to have something ready to whip out when the need arises. the bold orange looks great, but i think i’d love the sand gray as well.

  17. Stephanie Gray says

    Wow, I’ve never seen this carrier before and it looks fantastic. I LOVE that it folds up so small. My current carriers take up so much room! I’d love one that could fit in the diaper bag. Thanks for the great review.

  18. Nicole Daw says

    This is pretty awesome! I am all about convenience and this seems to be a good option because it folds so small!

  19. Jennifer L says

    After trying tons of different carriers we bought from the baby store before and after my DS, who is 4 1/2 months now, and not finding a single one I like, this is one I might try! Thank you for review, and as I stated on your 8 Accessories blog, you can just tell how happy you are about review these products! and your baby girl is beautiful!

  20. Danielle Smith says

    I like that this carrier folds up so small!! We travel to my dads a lot and this would be great to keep in the diaper beg so it didn’t get accidentally left!!

  21. Brittney Demeter says

    Folds up to the size of a pop can? Are you serious? That is awesome! The carriers I have are all soooooo big and honestly, a huge pain to try and take with whenever we travel. This one looks great!

  22. Erica Williams says

    oh, how awesome. My husband and I are big outdoors fans, and this looks like an awesome hiking/camping option. Thanks for such a wonderful review.

  23. Sarah Hayes says

    You both are adorable! I didnt know much about this brand of carrier until this review so thanks for all the info. i love that it is so small when pack away. thats a very nice trait for a carrier to have. this looks great for vacation too

  24. Cindy Kong says

    wow, wish i knew about this when i took my trip to nyc.. had my ergobaby carrier and it took up so much room. This is a must have for me.

  25. says

    This looks awesome! I just wrote a post about why I love to baby wear. I’m a new follower on bloglovin’ and am so happy to have found your blog! I hope this isn’t terribly weird, but I just love all your freckles. :) -Andrea
