Did you know that the average baby cries for three hours a day during the first three months of their life?
Of course, the only way to comfort a crying baby is to pick them up and provide skin-to-skin contact. In a randomized trial, scientists found that regularly carrying babies will decrease their crying by 43%. Who wouldn’t want that?
This reassurance of love and safety is not only comforting, but necessary for their growing brains. According to this 2016 study, the most valuable thing a parent can give a child is not fancy toys, expensive vacations, or luxury clothes. The most important thing a child can receive in the first three years of life is “simply a parent’s love, time and support.”
Unfortunately, constantly picking up a child and holding them close is physically exhausting.
That’s when babywearing comes in. Using a baby carrier takes 16% less energy than holding a baby in your arms. But many of the carriers out there were designed with only the child in mind, not the parent. With painful straps and sweaty fabric, they provide close contact, but at what cost?
Guillaumia designed the Pick-Me-Up baby carrier to serve both the child and the parent. This unique carrier with ergonomic design keeps both of you comfortable and secure during your day-to-day life.
The Pick-Me-Up is perfect for busy, on-the-go parents thanks to its simple and compact design. It’s incredibly easy to take on and off, unlike many other baby carriers. Strolls around the block, grocery store runs, and errands just got a whole lot easier.
If that wasn’t enough, this convertible crossbody carrier can also transform into a nursing sling and baby walking harness to meet all your daily needs. In this vein, the Pick-Me-Up grows with your child. From nursing stages to walking stages, it will support your baby throughout several growing phases.
With the Pick-Me-Up, you can provide the close contact your child needs without a strained back or, worse, developing postural kyphosis. This condition can be brought on by frequently bending down or carrying heavy, unsupported weight on your front—all problems which the Pick-Me-Up fixes.
But it’s not all about the parents. This crossbody carrier was designed to simulate natural holding, which promotes good digestion and bonding for babies all while preventing flat head syndrome. The Pick-Me-Up can also help prevent developmental dysplasia of the hips (DDH) since it promotes natural holding without tightly binding their legs or keeping their hips open.
Guillaumia is dedicated to taking care of parents, so you can focus on what really matters: loving your baby.
