Action Baby Carrier Review & #GIVEAWAY {discount code too!!} @ActionBabySSC

                                Action Baby Carriers



As a Mom of 3 kids already, I know that I will need some free hands once BG comes in August. I wore Olivia when she was an infant but I really didn't like our carrier. It wasn't comfortable at all so I ended up donating it.

Fast forward 3 years and I now know what I want. I want a carrier that will grow with baby, that is comfortable, easy to use and possibly made in the USA.

Disclosure:
you are about to read a product review.
I received the product{s} reviewed free of charge in
exchange for my honest opinion.

                                  284435_10150234680347861_501187_n

This is where Action Baby Carrier comes in. They are made in the USA, are super comfortable, Easy to Use, have buckles that allow for quick on and off, Light weight, support hips, spine, leg and pelvis development, can be worn for long periods of time and have a cross strap internal support system.



Whew, that's alot of amazing features.

Here is how Action Baby Carriers began

Action Baby Carriers did not start off as the buckle carrier that it is today.  Our first product was named Active Mom Carriers and was a mei tai style (tie) baby carrier.  It all started in 2006 when a few family members of our founder, Angela Alexander, were having babies.  Not wanting to be typical in the purchasing of a gift, she decided to get a bit creative.  She figured she could sew up a few baby carriers.  The first one took 9 hours. Whew…
But, oh no, she didn’t stop there!  For some crazy reason she decided to continue on and make 2 more for twins that her cousin were expecting!  Getting the process down a bit she cut her time to nearly 17.5 hours. Impressive!
She was being watched by her husband.  The eye of a typical math wiz, who sees systems and patterns and “time saving techniques” in every process.  She tried to hold her own, but he stepped in.  He got the process down to 1.5 hours- how?  She still has no idea!  But he did.  Angela then had the brilliant idea to post a quick question on a babywearing forum- “anyone want to buy a carrier?”  35 orders over night and bam, a business!
The demand from the Active Mom Carrier fans was to move into the buckle carriers.  It was protested on the manufacturing end for a while.  This means webbing, buckles a different design….  But they listened, as all good companies do, and rolled out Action Baby Carriers!
Action Baby Carriers became an instant hit for several reasons. 1) It was (and still is) made in the USA. 2) The design was simple and effective. Not leaving painful red marks on the legs of babies (typical in the industry) and had an internal support system for weight displacement. 3) Cost….  Everyone wants quality and affordability.  Action Baby Carriers has honored our commitment to making sure that parents can afford to carry and bond with their babies.
The idea of a little gift, turned into a question “anyone want to buy a carrier”, turned into a business- is quite beautiful!  Note: It no longer takes us hours to make a carrier! :-) In making thousands, in our own factory, we have a quick and quite productive process.

Party of 5 was sent the Action Baby Carrier in the "daily print" Vada. You may be wondering just what the "daily print" is right? Well, each day Action Baby Carriers offer a "daily print" in which you can choose the Baby Carrier, Toddler Carrier, or the JR Carrier.



  • MADE IN THE USA
  • Can be used on both front and back carry
  • Comes with a security chest strap
  • Waistband height 4″
  • Width of shoulder straps 3″
  • Main Body including waistband 18″ tall, 13.5″ wide
  • Hip Strap 28″ to 53″ with 27.5″ of padding
  • Extremely comfortable
  • Easy to use
  • Instructions included
I love the fact that I can use this carrier as a Front Carry or a Back Carry. I tried the back carry with Olivia and while it was a bit uncomfortable since I am 27 weeks pregnant Olivia was comfortable. Since BG isn't here yet I can't tell you how easy it is to nurse in the Action Baby Carriers but you can read all of the reviews HERE! Seems super easy and I cannot wait to try it once she is here. 

Here is something I learned while reading the website. NEVER leave your carrier in the hot car, use in the dryer, hot water, or extreme heat. It can compromise the plastic buckle.
