Experience, Expertise and Ethics
The Integra Baby Carrier is one of the most recent unstructured buckle carriers to take the baby carrying world by storm. Designed by Sarah Sadler, one of the UK’s most experienced baby carrying consultants and carrier designers, this unstructured buckle carrier comes in the full range of designs from the block colours of the Essentials ranges, to the gorgeous most fashionable and classic Prints, with stunning woven wrap collaborations, as well as coming in Harris Tweed and, of course, for hot weather carrying, the UV protective and lightweight Solar fabric.
And they aren’t just gorgeous, the utmost care has gone into making these carriers from sustainable resources, using recycled products for their manuals, using carbon neutral couriers, and ensuring the highest standards in their production. Integra offers fair working conditions to its staff, supporting them through parenthood and family life. Integra’s commitment to the natural and working environment makes them second to none when it comes to making an ethical choice too.
Integra Baby Carriers come in 3 sizes, Size 1, suitable from newborn (from 7.5 lb) until around 2 years of age, Size 2 suitable from around 18month to 3.5 years, and Size 3 from around 3 years to 5 years (and beyond!) So these carriers can see you from birth all the way through your carrying journey.
As this carrier is totally unstructured this carrier is extremely versatile. The panel can be cinched when carrying a newborn or smaller baby using the accessory strap to ensure it is the perfect width for your baby. An unstructured carrier like the Integra Baby Carrier is also great for people who do not like the added bulk of a structured waistband. The panel length can be shortened by using up extra length with a deeper apron fold, by having the waistband higher on your body than the baby’s bottom will be positioned. The shoulder straps have lovely light padding for added comfort, without adding bulk. Using the straps crossed in the front carry holds the weight of the child closer into your body, so that you bear their weight as a part of you allowing you to maintain your natural stance and ensuring the most comfortable carry all round. The fabric is sturdy and supportive yet soft and moldable around your precious child’s body. These are some of the most compact carriers out there, they are perfect for keeping in your changing bag, pushchair, or car so it is always on hand whenever it is needed!
Additional optional neck support
The hood has an additional curved top which, when clipped to the right height at the back of the neck can support the neck and head of a young or feeding baby. It also adds an aesthetically pleasing curve to the top line of the carrier- simple and elegant!
Keep track of that strap!
Never again will you lose an accessory strap. The waistband has a little loop which is perfect for clipping your accessory strap through when not in use, and we have also used it for clipping our keys on their Carabiner. This nifty feature is tiny, but very handy!
The accessory strap can be used to cinch the panel, and doubles as an optional chest strap when back carrying.
Dual Adjust Buckles for ease and comfort
The addition of dual adjust buckles makes it easier to tighten the carrier by pulling either forwards or backwards, whichever is the direction that is easiest and most natural to you. This makes the carrier more easily usable by people with strength, flexibility, and joint issues.
It’s not just us that loves them, you do too. Integra Baby Carriers won the Mumii.co.uk 2018 Gold Award for Best Baby Carrier Brand.
