The award winning Hipseat has been developed to allow adults to carry their children naturally on their hip without the usual strains on the back - it is ideal for babies and toddlers aged from 6 months to 3-4 years approx 20kg.
The Hipseat is renowned for its durability, style and comfort. It is tough, hard-wearing and machine washable. The Hippychick Hipseat is a back supporting belt, with an integral padded foam shelf, developed to allow adults to carry their children naturally on their hip without the usual strains on the back.
Specifically designed to address one of the root causes of adult back pain, the seat provides a firm shelf for the child to sit on and supports their increasingly heavy weight from underneath. Instead of twisting the spine, the back stays straight and the child is tucked into the chest on whichever side is more comfortable for the wearer, providing comfort and security for both adult and child. As well as being a comfortable way of carrying your child it has the added benefit of encouraging interaction.
Light weight, discreet in black, the Hipseat is also great for Dads.
Endorsed by osteopaths, physiotherapists and health centers, the Hipseat redistributes the weight of the child away from the upper back, shoulders and arms, spreading it evenly around the waist.
