The Wilkinet Baby Carrier adapts to the changing needs of you and your baby. It gently cocoons a tiny 2.5kg (5lbs) newborn yet is strong enough to carry chunky toddlers! You can use the Wilkinet to carry your baby facing in on the front, facing out on the front (usually not before 3 months/6½-7kg/13–14lbs) on the hip and on the back.

Black Wilkinet Baby Carrier with Extra Long Straps.

The Extra Long straps are suitable for the plus-size parent (recommended for women dress size 20+ or men with a chest and waist over 44 inches).

An XL Wilkinet works in the same way as the standard sized Wilkinet. The only difference is that the tying straps (which wrap around the waist) are made longer for a more comfortable fit.

"I am a huge fan - as both an osteopath and a parent. Sally’s genius was in devising a "contraption" that:

  • is good for the baby - weight carried on the thighs and buttocks instead of the perineum;
  • is good for the parent - the shoulder straps only stop the baby falling forward and all the weight is transferred directly to the pelvis, while, providing the waist straps are fitted low enough, it also acts as a sacro-iliac belt, helping to stabilise the sacro-iliac joints (especially important for a nursing mother, whose ligaments will tend to be lax);
  • has NO moving parts - an engineering tour-de-force. (I was an engineer before I became an osteopath) That means guaranteed 100% reliability with NO maintenance!

The terrible thing about many clip fastening type carriers is that the baby’s weight is all taken on your shoulders, which means it is all transmitted down your entire spine. In addition, the weight is in front of you so your shoulders are pulled forward and your back muscles have to work overtime keeping you upright. I managed less than 10 minutes using a clip fastening baby carrier before getting backache.

The Wilkinet transfers the weight directly onto the pelvic bones (your hips) and from there to the legs, so none of the baby’s weight has to be carried through the spine, so there is hardly any load placed on the spinal column at all."
