Cocoon / Baby carrying gear


Cocoon baby carrier can be used either in front or rear of the body. The baby obtains its parents intimicy, the user can do his everyday work. Cocoon’s 2 main components form a unit but also work separately. Though the actual intent isn’t revealed until the elements are combined.
The gear stays in position no matter which direction the seat is facing. Its flexiblity encourages to also use Cocoon briefly or to take turn with the partner. For nursing, simply detach leg- and headstraps and lift up the headrest to be unobserved. As the user is able to fasten the gear alone in either carrying position, Cocoon is good for couples or single parents
