I really enjoy when I review an item from a new-to-the-blog company and love everything about it. When this happens I typically circle back to the company when I am looking for an item for my family, based on my previous experience. We all do this when purchasing items, I just have the (awesome) fortune of being able to do so in a review format a lot of the time!
I recently posted a review on the phil&teds traveler, a great product for parents on the go at any time of the year. We used ours mainly at the beach this summer, but in the entries for the giveaway I read a lot of other great ideas on ways parents wanted to incorporate this product into their lives. While learning more about the traveler, I checked out another product from phil&teds and wondered if it would be as useful as the first. This, of course, was the phil&teds metro carrier.
I have been so jealous of parents who look like they’re effortlessly carrying their babies and toddlers on their backs. I always feared that, if that were me, I’d fall over backwards like a turtle with it’s house on it’s back. My husband, on the other hand, has been wanting this style of carrier for awhile so he was thrilled when I saw the metro at phil&teds and wanted to try it out.
Features of the phil&teds metro carrier include a 5-point safety harness, and Base Loading Technology making it even easier to get baby into the carrier. My husband particularly liked the extra storage space within, and the fact that this carrier comes with a sunhood with a removable wind/rain cover, especially for the warm summer days. I like that baby sits securely inside this carrier, and has a great view of the world while out and about.
My husband likes wearing the carrier and Everleigh seems to enjoy her new vantage. I’ve tried it on myself, to get a feel for how the weight is distributed. No, I didn’t fall on my back like a scared turtle, though it is a little different to get used to the idea of carrying someone you carried in your belly – on your back – months later. I was impressed by how comfortable the metro carrier feels with baby on board and think that we will get a lot of use out of this carrier when we’re out as a family this fall.
The phil&teds metro carrier is available in 3 color combinations and can be purchased directly from phil&teds online for $179.99. Customers can also use the find retailer link on the site to find a store near you that carries phil&teds products.
