My Calyx

I hinted at this in a previous blog.

Z loves being worn, he loves being held. I bought a pouch to wear him on my hip and it's slightly comfortable. It's not the best thing in the world but for $30 it does the job. I could place him on my hip and not have to use hands, muscles, etc. I haven't used it that often because I didn't get in the practice of using it all of the time.

I decided to take the plunge and buy a SSC (soft-sided carrier) to put Z on my back comfortably and easily. I tried out and Ergo and didn't like it so much. I wasn't comfortable and I couldn't get him on my back by myself. I asked around about the Beco Butterfly and the Calyx. I've heard hands down that the Calyx is the most comfortable ever.

After doing research and talking to people, I decided to take the plunge and buy a Calyx. I wanted my own so I picked out fabric and waited 6ish weeks for this carrier. Once it got here, I tried it on right away and put Z in it as soon as he got home from daycare, and I fell in love. It is wonderful!!

I can put Z on my back, by myself and he's happy. He loves it! It's comfortable and doesn't feel like I'm carrying 25ish pounds of toddler on my back. It's easy to use, especially while walking through a crowded mall. I don't have to worry about the stroller and pushing it through crowds. This thing is awesome!

Here are some pictures of the Calyx and then Z in the Calyx.
