LILLEbaby hosted a fun fall event celebrating the launch of their exciting new Active Series carriers on October 11 in Santa Monica. The baby-friendly event in Tongva Park included a music/story hour, baby-carrying yoga, a neat DIY succulent bar, Polaroid photo ops and fun, healthy snacks for parents and kids. Free product samples from Babyganics and HappyBaby as well as mom-friendly sports bras from Fabletics were also provided to guests.
On hand for attendees to test out and take home were the all new LILLEbaby Active Pro and Active All Seasons carriers.
I was lucky to take home the Active Pro 6 in 1 (in Space Dye Grey). “Designed for Adventure”, this versatile and ergonomic carrier is crafted specifically for parents on the go. It not only looks and feels great — is comfortable for baby (just ask the dozens of babies being happily carried at the event!) — has water bottle storage, phone and key storage rings to attach toys or accessories, safety reflectors, added neck support AND the trusty, wide LUMBAR SUPPORT (so important for those of us in need of extra lower back support). This carrier differs from the LILLEbaby Complete Air Flow carrier we currently own in that it feels extra comfortable and secure but has so many added perks for mom or dad on the run – bonus! With the LILLEbaby Active series the baby neck support can now be folded and tucked away versus snapped down.
While the Complete Airflow comes equipped with vented 3D mesh, The LILLEbaby Active Series is ALSO equipped with the breathable mesh, with one of the newbies – the Active All Seasons – also containing added UV protection. The only thing missing from the new line is the hood for baby. Parents can use the Active in 6 carrying styles: feral, infant, facing out, toddler, hip and back.
This carrier is good for 7lbs-45lbs, one that will surely become my favorite, go-to for my 25lb, 14 month old!
There are 3 carriers in the Active Series, Active Pro in Space Dye Grey, Active Pro in Space Dye Cobalt and Active in All Seaons in Slate! One lucky thatisla.com reader will win a LILLEBaby Active carrier of their choice!
