CatBird Seat Baby Carrier Giveaway

I don’t think its any secret how much I love babywearing.

I’ve been wearing my baby since he was 5 days old.


I even wrote a little diddy about the benefits of babywearing <- check that out! 🙂

So when I say to you that my love for baby wearing runs deeps, I really mean it.


I’ve shared a few of my favorite things as each month has come and gone {8 months this week!} in this new adventure with our little one, but one of my hands down, absolute, could not live without things has been our baby carriers – from CatBird baby!

I literally use it everyday.

I take it with me wherever we go.

I always have it. I’m constantly using it.

I love it. Brooks loves it. We love it.

Can you tell I’m slightly obsessed?

Babywearing makes so much sense for me. We are constantly out and about enjoying the city and Brooks loves to see the sights while also being comfortable enough to take a snooze anytime, anywhere.

The Catbird Baby carrier has been the one thing {along with the binky!} we have literally taken on every trip -> I throw it in the bottom of the stroller when we are running errands, I use it when we walk Jackson in the morning, I wear Brooks if he is fussy or clingy and needs some extra love – it has been a lifesaver.


Using baby carriers puts everyone in “the Catbird Seat” which means “an advantageous or enviable position” – and that’s EXCACTLY what I love most about wearing Brooks {along with the streamline design, the longevity and the overall simplicity of use}


The Catbird Seat carriers have also been one of the few things that has grown with Brooks. As he has gotten bigger and older, he has become more comfortable in it. He is able to face multiple directions and can enjoy watching the world go by {from the catbird seat!} He could be in the worse mood ever and if I put him in his carrier and take him for a walk, all is right with the world again.

If he’s being fussy and fighting a nap that I know he needs, I’ll put him in the carrier and within minutes he will be out and I’ll be perfectly comfortable wearing him for a while so he can sleep and I have two hands to get something done!

I began working with the wonderful folks at Catbird Baby before Brooks was even born and they were kind enough to provide me with TWO carriers to try out for myself – the pikkolo and the mei tai – and I love them both so much. The Pikkolo has a buckle snap which is so easy to wear & snap on quickly and the mei tai ties around the waist for a perfect fit every time.

I can’t tell you how many compliments I get on the carriers when I am wearing Brooks. Everyone is always asking me about them – I literally want to shout CATBIRD BABY from the rooftops!


A little more about the CatBird Seat -> The catbird seat is a colloquial expression popularized in the 1940s by American writer James Thurber, and by sportscaster Red Barber, and the inspiration for our company name. When you are sitting in the catbird seat, you are in a wonderful, enviable, advantageous position. This is where you and your baby belong, and this is where we strive to seat you when you wear your baby in our carriers.

    I’d love to win the pikkolo. My four month old and I have tried 3 carriers and one or both of us haven’t been super happy with any of them. I’ve been (obsessively) following your blog since you were pregnant as I was a few month behind you and also live in the Philly area! I’ve been really wanting to try the carrier because it always looks so comfortable for both you and brooks in all of your pictures. It’s literally been in my amazon cart for weeks and couldn’t pull the trigger. Haha. well, hope I win! Sorry for the incredibly long explanation.

    Since bringing my preemie home 3 weeks ago, I’ve been trying to find the perfect carrier for baby wearing. She’s 2 months old and only just 6 pounds, so slings are out and the moby is such a chore. And I love wearing her and being all snuggly. Catbird baby looks awesome! The grey Zephyr piccolo looks fab and the hubs could wear it too!! The sunset meitai is a close second. Keeping my fingers crossed… ps. love your blog!
