Catbird Baby Pikkolo review

Pikkolo carrier

My favorite baby carrier is the Pikkolo carrier by Catbird Baby.

That’s a pretty strong statement, right? Well, we all have our favorites. After trying about six baby carriers since having Kara in December, the Pikkolo is mine!

Pikkolo carrier features

The Pikkolo carrier from Catbird Baby is a cross between a mei tai and buckle carrier. This carrier features comfortable memory foam straps. Its stream line design actually enables you to do an ergonomic front facing out carry.

You can read more about Catbird Baby’s view on front facing out carry on their blog.

The Pikkolo can be used from birth without a separate insert, and still works great for carrying toddlers as heavy as 40 lbs.! The Pikkolo comes with attached hood and chest strap for use with back carrying.

What I love about the Pikkolo carrier

So, why is the Pikkolo my favorite carrier? One word.


Is it fair to base my Pikkolo review almost entirely on comfort? I think it is. Look — most of the carriers in this class are stylish and relatively easy to use.

What sets this carrier apart is the softness of the fabric, and the fact that there is virtually no bulk on this carrier. The shoulder straps do have padding, but it doesn’t make me feel like I’m wearing a life jacket. The Pikkolo also doesn’t have a bunch of excess padding around the waist. I LOVE that feature!

This carrier is just incredibly comfortable and easy to wear. I feel like Kara’s little butt and body just fit really comfortably inside the baby carrier as well.

It is so nice to have finally found a soft structured carrier that gives me a feeling of freedom. Catbird Baby’s Pikkolo carrier is perfect for anyone craving a carrier with less bulk. I truly love this carrier, and I think you will too!
