PATAPUM™ BABY CARRIER


After representing many different Baby Carriers in Europe, Patapum™ realized the need for a "Soft pack" baby carrier with a different design criteria. The Patapum™ Baby Carrier was designed in Italy. Patapum™ design criteria is based around 3 simple concepts: FREEDOM (Functional), STYLE & COMFORT. Patapum™ distribution structure is based on WAHM's (work at home mum's) from around the world.

We asked Corinne from Patapum™ what do you think distinguishes Patapum™ carriers from other carriers on the market?

Our Baby Carrier has undergone numerous design modifications and vigorous testing before releasing the product. Some exclusive design characteristics: ( Functional, comfortable and stylish...)

  • TUCK-AWAY HIP BELT SYSTEM. The carrier can be worn around your waist when not in use.
  • REMOVABLE HEAD REST TUCKED AWAY. Out of the way, so Mom doesn't have to worry about loosing it or getting the straps dangle with a near by object.
  • The design is liked by moms as well as dads.
  • The Baby model can be used with babies, around 5 months old, up to 40Lbs (18-20 Kgs) who can sit up alone and are strong enough to support their head.

Success Through Play Comments

Patapum™ sent us the Patapum™ Baby Carrier to review. The Patapum™ Baby Carrier is designed for babies aged 5 months and older (typically developing baby). The Patapum™ Baby Carrier can be worn as a front pack or a back pack and the design is suitable for men or women. It is compact and can be folded to fit nicely into a diaper bag making it easily transportable. The design is sturdy without being bulky and is well made. The waist panel is very supportive and comfortable and the straps are padded and offer the right amount of support. The Success Through Play™ Parent Panel were very impressed with how easy the Patapum™ Baby Carrier was to put on and take off. The tuck away hip belt system won rave reviews from the panel who found it very convenient to be able to tuck the carrier out of the way, but still leave it fastened on their body while baby was being changed or participated in a tummy time session. When it was time to place baby in the carrier again, it was very easy to simple unravel the carrier and place baby in the carrier securely. Baby seemed at ease in the carrier and when placed in the carrier correctly, was well supported in an ergonomic position. The detachable hood came in handy when protecting baby from the wind and when baby needed to take a nap. Our parent test panel loved loved the fact that a handy waist pouch is included with the purchase of every carrier. The waist pouch is very stylish for either a man or a woman to wear. We hope to see Patapum™ come out with an organic cotton range or use materials that are Oeko-Tex certified in the future. Highly Recommended.
