Saved In Hip Seat

HIPPYCHICK HIPSEAT

The Hipseat is a generous back supporting belt incorporating a built in seat for babies as young as six months and toddlers as old as three to perch on.  Its innovative design protects parents from the huge strain that can be put on backs by carrying heavy children for prolonged periods of time. The Hippychick Hipseat is the original and the best.Our award winning Hipseat has been developed to allow adults to carry their children naturally on their hip without the usual strains on the back – it is ideal for babies and toddlers aged 6 months up. The Hipseat is renowned for its durability, style and comfort. It is tough, hardwearing and machine washable.
The Hippychick Hipseat is a back supporting belt, with an integral padded foam shelf, developed to allow adults to carry their children naturally on their hip without the usual strains on the back.Specifically designed to address one of the root causes of adult back pain, the seat provides a firm shelf for the child to sit on and supports their increasingly heavy weight from underneath. Instead of twisting the spine, the back stays straight and the child is tucked into the chest on whichever side is more comfortable for the wearer, providing comfort and security for both adult and child.As well as being a comfortable way of carrying your child it has the added benefit of encouraging interaction. The Hipseat has a padded seat with a non-slip pad for extra comfort and is available in 5 fantastic colours – Hot Pink, Black, Purple, Grey and Navy. Each Hipseat is packed in an Eco drawstring bag for easy storage.

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

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
