It’s finally here…

It’s finally here folks!

The ergonomically designed, soft- structured, baby- carrier is finally here. Ha!

Months of research and endless mall pounding and Dr J came up with nothing. Until yesterday…

She found a Doha- based group of Mommies on Facebook (Meet the lovely ladies here) , that and a few phone calls later; things that had come to a dead halt, were set in motion again.

A mad dash to Landmark at 9:30 pm and Dr J finally laid hands on the …..

Some background info before the big reveal.

Why a carrier at all?

  • The stroller can be nuisance sometimes (read LuLu on Friday evenings!)
  • Great at airports especially when Dr J is travelling alone.
  • Easy to carry along when on vacation and family trips
  • Lil Ms Z likes being carried
  • Dr J likes long walks
  • It is a work out.
  • Baby- wearing is super-cool!
  • Of course research talks of several benefits of baby wearing….

What type? Criteria?

  • An ergonomic one.
  • Tried, tested, proven and popular.
  • Safe and comfortable for Lil Ms Z
  • Comfortable to wear
  • Nifty and non- bulky enough for the petite, 5’3″ Dr J
  • “Macho” enough for the 5’11” Mr H (hence pretty wraps and colorful slings are out of the picture 😦 )

Brands?

Baby Bjorn, Manduca, Tula, Boba, Beco, Ergobaby. Whichever Dr J can lay her hands on, preferably without the hassle of international shipping.

So, what DID she finally get?

Drum-roll please….

Dr J intends to give it a thorough trial before she posts a review. Hopefully soon…

Till then…

Dr J.

P.S. More non-random, researched, tested baby products coming soon…

  1. good choice. 425 QR at Mothercare, if i am right.. After having bought the “must-have” items for the baby, this is currently in the “nice-to-have” category which means that it could be as a gift :)) until we decide to buy it.. from Ergo’s US website as they have some nice designs that’s not available in Doha.

    Price-wise. expect it to be around 50 qr more, including Shop and Ship costs..
