Excerpt: As my son has started to crawl I tend to carry him with me everywhere around the house as he moves so quickly around.. I got this recommended from a friend who loves it! Unfortunately I find it a bit uncomfortable to wear and it is bigger than I thought.
Excerpt: Don't wear a belt when wearing this as it digs in to your hip (I nearly gave up with it as I thought it so uncomfortable - then removed my belt). Although made to wear on your right hip, can be worn on either - just swivel it round.

Excerpt: I bought this thinking it would be handy when out to the shops as my daughter would get half way then want to be carried. However, I found it to be quite uncomfortable to use and too big to fit into my bag when I wasn't using it.

Excerpt: OK for very short trips and to help correct posture, especially for slim-hipped mums/dads. However, doesn't help with the 'burning arm' sensation when carrying an up/down baby or toddler. Also, not hands-free, which is always a definite plus with other little ones liable to suddenly dash off!!

Excerpt: I really couldn't get this to fit right, but I am fairly petite. Everytime I used it it gave me backache and after a few attempts I sold it to another mum at toddler group who got on with it much better.

Excerpt: I loved my hippychic Hip Seat for a short while as it did give more relief from carrying my toddler. However, I did find it awkward to position correctly, especially when she was a little bit heavier again and found it slipped or dug in.
Excerpt: It's a great idea, and I can see that it does work, but only if you use it, and to be honest I rarely did. I didn't PLAN to carry my children when they were this size, so I just never thought about taking it out with me.
