Tula comes in two sizes, standard and toddler. I have a Tula standard baby carrier. The standard fits babies 15 pounds to 44 pounds. The standard can be used with newborns 7.8 pounds and up with the infant insert. The Tula toddler fits toddlers from about 18 months (around 25 pounds) old up to 4 years old. The Tula toddler’s back panel is 18″ tall and 19″ wide. Both Tula standard and toddler can be used in front carry and back carry positions. Both the standard and the toddler are designed to provide a wide seat which helps support a natural M position of baby’s legs and hips. Baby’s legs should be supported from the hip to the knee joint.
Tula has a lot of padding on the shoulder straps and the waist band. This makes the Tula VERY comfortable to wear. When these photos were taken Bunny was 20 pounds. I tried both the Tula standard and the toddler on with Bunny. I decided to get the standard because Bunny still had room for her to grow in the standard, and Bunny was not 25 pounds at that time (she still isn’t!). The back part of the Tula came up to Bunny’s head when I first got it (when Bunny was 11 months old) and Bunny’s knees were still close to the leg holes on the Tula. In the photos Bunny is almost 17 months and still fits the Tula standard. It does not look like Bunny will outgrow the standard anytime soon. On soft structured carries, the carrier should come all the way to your babies knees, to support your baby’s leg from the hip joint to the knee joint. Their legs and bum should be supported.
Tula is a very breathable soft structured baby carrier. Tula has a detachable hood. The hood has two snaps on the back panel which allow the hood to be taken off. The hood has elastic pull strings on each side that allow you to tighten or loosen the hood to your comfort level. The hood straps can be attached to the shoulder straps with clips. This is nice for when your baby is sleeping, to keep the sun out of baby’s face, or when nursing. I often nurse in my Tula and use the hood for head support for Bunny. The hood also offers some coverage when nursing.
Tula’s straps are adjustable. It is a one size fits all. My Love can wear Bunny, and is very comfortable wearing her in the Tula. The shoulder staps can be loosened or tightened to your comfort level. One feature I really like is the padding beneath the buckles. The padding under the buckles is nice because it protects your skin and body from rubbing against the buckeles. It makes for a nice smooth ride.
Another feature I really like is, on the waist strap, the Tula has a pocket that is big enough to fit an iPhone. I really like this pocket. I have not seen a pocket like this on any other carrier.
The Tula is very comfortable for me to wear Bunny for long periods of time. We still rarely use a stroller because Bunny prefers to be worn, and having a comfortable carrier is a must! The Tula is our go to carrier.
Tulas come in a wide variety of colors and patterns, with new designs being released often.
