Dear Crissy

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!

Keep reading to learn why I love this baby carrier, and also how you can enter to win a Pikkolo carrier of your own!

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!

    I would love to win this carrier! I used the bjorn until my little weighed 15 lbs, and now I use the Ergo, but would prefer a carrier that she can face outwards in!

    I’d love to win this carrier for my very wonderful friend who is expecting. She has had a few set backs but is finally pregnant-she would adore to hold her precious bundle in : )

    Thanks for the competition

    I would absolutely love to win a Pikkolo carrier from Catbird Baby because I am going to be a first time grandma. I will be babysitting 3x a week and I walk every morning, the Pikkolo carrier would be awesome. Not only will it keep our little one snug and comfortable up next to me but he/she will add a little weight so I can lose some weight myself. I want to be a happy and fit grandma.

    I’ve been eyeballing this carrier forever! My two month old and I would love a chance to win one!

    I think a carrier like this would be great because some activities it is just too hard to get a stroller around. I also really like that it handles up to 40 pounds so it can transition as the baby grows into a toddler.

    I would love to win this for my Granddaughter who is expecting anyday.


  14. Courtney — July 11, 2012 @ 12:25 pm (#)

    I have a Moby and I love it Ryder on the other hand is not a fan, but I love wearing him so this would give me another option!
