This product looked fab; it was eye-catching and was a little bit like opening a Christmas present. It was well presented, and looked inviting. The packaging was made of really sturdy cardboard, it was also very eye-catching. There wasn’t too much inner packaging when taking the product out of the box, I found this reduced the need for unnecessary throwing away of recycling. I feel this is environmentally friendly. The instructions were very clear, easy to follow and didn’t include any complicated words; I feel they would have suited anyone.
Yes it did make carrying my daughter more comfortable. However, I found that with still carrying a bit of extra baby weight myself, after a while the edges of the waist strap were starting to dig in just above my hip. This was rectified with using the product for a lesser time. My daughter enjoyed being in the seat and seemed to be quite comfortable, she seemed to have more freedom with her arms, rather
than usually using them to cling on to me. She appeared to feel safe. I found the quality to be excellent, the fabric from which the product was made seemed very durable and was easily wiped down. It feels a secure item, even when not being worn. It made me trust it before I sat my daughter on it. I also found the little carry bag that came with it very useful as I put this under the pram and was able to easily use the hipseat when required without too much faffing around. The actual seat unit is very sturdy and I wasn’t worried about putting
my daughter on it, I really did like this product. I feel this product offers value for money for someone wanting to use this product a lot but for occasional use I would find it a little too high in price. However I do feel the product is worth the money because of the quality. I would not buy this product for myself as I wouldn’t use it enough. I would recommend this product to anyone, if they had a need to use it regularly. I enjoyed reviewing this product, as did my daughter; I found it a useful accessory. I really liked how secure the belt was; I found the buckle lock was very good. The Velcro makes the security of this product fantastic when being worn, and with the Velcro being so far around the belt it didn’t slip or undo at all, this is a great feature. I also liked the little grip pad on top of the seat as it seemed to make my daughter be able to stay in place, so with just one arm around her she and I felt comfortable and secure. I did notice there were little pockets inside the belt, I didn’t find a use for these at all, and I don’t really understand why they were there. I would never use this feature of the product and feel it is unnecessary. Danielle Judge – Evelyn 16 Months

Loved the colour the material is strong and sturdy. It’s a good looking product too. Packaging minimal and ideal for this item. Instructions very easy to follow. Wearing it for too long got uncomfortable but perfect to take my son to the corner shop. My son did
enjoy being in the hipseat. I found him more comfortable and calm. When he sat on the seat. The quality is brilliant. The cost is a bit much in my personal opinion but it’s a good product. I would purchase this now I have tested it. I would recommend. It’s very perfect for
ladies who suffer from back pain and to have something to shift off the weight of a child is absolutely brilliant. Salma Hussain – Subhaan 1 Year

When I opened it, I thought it was quite weird and probably wouldn’t come of much use. Instructions clear and easy to follow. The quality is good. Slightly on the high side regarding price but a versatile item. While I was initially unimpressed by the product, it actually did come of great use, particularly while traveling abroad. Using this instead of the conventional carrier/push chair was excellent as it wasn’t as big and bulky to cart around when not in use and my daughter seemed to like it. It was highly convenient to pick my daughter up and put her down as she wasn’t bound in place by straps and buckles. It was also great at distributing my daughter’s weight and was good for my back during extended times of having to carry my daughter. While I personally find the price a little steep, it was a great product to use and I would recommend it to other parents. Stacey Nind – Caitlyn 16 Months
