Babies are happiest closest to their caregivers - for the majority of human history mothers have carried their babies close to their bodies, not only to leave their hands free for the multi tasking all mothers perform but, as research has shown, because babies are always happiest when in close proximity to the bodies o their care givers.

Strong Support for back and hip Development - using the benefits of modern materials the ABC assists the care giver in going about her/his business while creating a healthy supportive environment for the child. it provides strong support for the correct development of the child’s spine and hips and the specially designed hood provides 100% support for the child’s head while sleeping.

Pure South African - this baby carrier is a pure African product, hand made from the finest and most durable cottons. it is easy to take care of and should be washed at 30 C. (We train longterm unemployed and HIV pos woman and men to sew on industrial machines) We are now Fair Trade accredited with COFTa Africa.


- Have hands free for multi-tasking
- Go for a walk
- Wear front or back
- From 3 months to 20 kg
- Better for hip, neck and spine development
- Happy mom and baby

Ideally the baby should be carried on the front of the care giver during the first 3 – 5 months and thereafter on the back. it may be used until the child is 3 or 3.5 years old.

What most people don’t know about baby carriers is:

- To carry a small child facing forward is bad for them, they get over stimulated and they cannot turn their heads away or escape the onslaught in anyway. Because a babies vision is not fully and clearly developed in the first few month a lot of what it sees is not clearly definable.

- When a baby faces forward the legs hang down even more straight and that is bag for the undeveloped hip joints and there is a possibility for developing hip dysplasia -pls google.

- All tribal carrying methods allow for the babies legs to be in a bent position protecting the undeveloped hip joint. And so do all the soft structure carriers that are getting very popular overseas like ERGO or Manducca Baby Carriers and like the African Baby Carrier.

- it is not good for the mums back to be hollowed out nor is this good for the babies back. In a normal mango pouch carrier this is the case for mums back from day one and for the babies back more and more as it grows. It is not supportive for the caregiver to carry all the weight of a growing baby on the shoulders that are already tired from being used a lot more than ever before in their life because of holding baby, rocking baby, breastfeeding baby. In the ABC most of the weight is placed on the hips and thus the shoulders relieved from carrying all the weight. Unlike with slings the weight is also placed on the hips evenly.

- most carriers are designed from birth and they start getting uncomfortable at about 6month and then ? then you can buy a big aluminium framed carrier that is impossible to take to the mall or use inside ones own kitchen. But a baby that enjoyed being carrier for the first 6 month is going to want to be carried less and sometimes still a lot until they are nearly 4 years of age.
