QB Quick Pick -- choose the Pikkolo if:
  • you want a non-bulky but supportive carrier that adapts from birth to 40 pounds without needing an infant insert
  • you want a hybrid buckle carrier that enables multiple wearing options on your front, back, or hip
  • you want to do an ergonomic forward-facing out position for young babies under 20 pounds with good head control

What It Is


The Pikkolo is an innovative soft structured baby carrier that combines the versatility of a traditional mei tai, an Asian-style soft carrier that ties on with long fabric straps, with the ergonomic functionality of a modern buckle carrier. Unique design features enable the Pikkolo baby carrier to adapt for newborns through toddlers, 8 to 40 pounds, without an infant insert. The Pikkolo allows front facing in, front facing out, hip, and back carries, with or without the optional babywearing support belt accessory. The Pikkolo's flexible fit adapts to a wide range of adult body sizes, from short to tall and from petite to fluffy. Dual-adjusting buckles make getting a custom fit quick and easy. Slow-recovery memory foam in the shoulder straps provides cushioning and comfort without bulk.

How It Works

The Pikkolo works like a mei tai for front carries, with shoulder straps crossing on the back and waist belt around the waist. Newborns and very small babies are put in an upright position with legs froggied, knees bent, and toes pointing to the outside of the carrier, in the best position for strong hip socket development. The adjustable base allows babies to have legs out at an earlier age than with non-adjustable carriers, great for the 2-4 month stage when many babies want their legs out but aren't ready for a full straddle. This feature also enables an ergonomic forward facing out position for young babies with good head control who want to see the world. For back carries, the carrier transforms into a soft structured carrier where the shoulder straps are worn backpack-style and clipped together with a chest clip. The optional babywearing support belt can be used from when baby is 20+ pounds to transfer baby's weight to the wearer's hips and extend the height of the carrier. A hip carrying position is also possible.
