Freehugger° is a baby carrier concept that clearly addresses both parents. It invites to share the task of carrying, encouraging each parent to explore an own way of interaction and to develop a proper child-parent relationship.
Key feature is the possibility to position the baby spontaneously and intuitively on the body without opening any connection. For carrying breaks, changing diapers or for taking turns the baby's harness can be released in one secured move.
Position change as well as partial weight distribution to the parents' hips additionally lower the physical effort.
