PennyInYourPocket Carrier Review and Giveaway

WRITTEN BY BETSY

As you may remember, my DS is a big boy. At 13 months, he weighs about 27 pounds. He also does not hold on when you carry him. He hangs like a sack of potatoes. Ugh. So I have been looking for a carrier that works for bigger babies/toddlers. My search led me to Etsy, as it frequently does- where I found PennyInYourPocket. Tessa, the founder and creator of PennyInYourPocket, is a stay-at-home-mom who makes great mei-tai style carriers that she creates using recycled materials from t-shirts to add personal style. Tessa includes a pocket on her carriers for your keys or an extra pacifier. All of her carriers are reversible for added versatility. The black tie straps are long enough to comfortably fit around plus-sized mom's also. Tessa was kind enough to send me a Florida Gators carrier for my DS that reverses to all black. I put G in it and he loved it! He felt very supported and comfy (important for me) and very close to Mommy (important for him)!
I went to a few Christmas parties this holiday season with DS in his carrier and it worked very well. Later parties allowed G to fall asleep right on me (his favorite place to sleep anyway!) while I socialized without worry. We wear it Gators side out for regular days and solid black for dressier occasions such as church. This carrier has saved me much wear and tear of my poor arms and back! We love it!

PennyInYourPocket has also made a carrier to give away to one of our fabulous readers! This carrier is quilted gray on one side and a cute red/gray pinstripe on the other.

I know you ladies want this one!


Mandatory Entry: Visit PennyInYourPocket's Etsy shop and add her to your favorites. Come back here and tell us which carrier she has pre-made is your favorite.

Just when I thought we could be friends you had to reveal your true 'colors'! As a die hard Dawgs fan I'm not sure if this friendship will work out! LOL! I love that they are made from recycled t-shirts and such! Very cute!

Betsy Knight said...

Calley- To be honest, I wrote that review not Danielle. She hates the Gators but I love 'em!
