Introducing the MiaMily HIPSTER Carrier (VIDEO)

MiaMily Carrier


Congrats to our winners – Melissa (P) Nickerson and her friend Lisa Webster

When I was introduced to the new HIPSTER carrier by the Swiss company, MiaMily, this summer, I knew this one was different! While it was a brand new carrier that wasn’t released yet, after we met, they went on to blow their Kickstarter campaign out of the water!

We are so excited to give you this exclusive first look at the MiaMily HIPSTER carrier, and if you read to the bottom, we have a GIVEAWAY for you as well!

The HIPSTER is a versatile and all-in-one carrier that can be used 9 different ways that are safe, fast and easy for parents and babies. Wear it on your hip, front, or back and let your baby face in or out on the front, making this carrier pretty awesome. Even with all of these configurations, the MiaMily HIPSTER is easy to use with no intricate systems or long fabrics to deal with and no big learning curve. New moms don’t have time for a learning curve. It needs to work now, fast and easy. That is the HIPSTER. It’s easy to figure out quickly and comfortable to wear.

MiaMily Hipster

Because comfort and ergonomics are important, this carrier was designed to distribute weight evenly for mom’s, dad’s, or any caregiver’s spinal health and posture. Plus, it has a unique wide-base seat to help prevent hip dysplasia by properly positioning baby’s legs. NOTE: The HIPSTER is for use with a baby 3 months to 3 years old.

MiaMily Hipster

I love the wide waist belt that makes it comfortable without digging into your new mom belly (or 3-time mom belly in my case!). The HIPSTER also comes with an extender belt so mom, dad, grandparents, babysitters… any caregiver can get the proper fit.

Parents are going to love the versatility of wearing it as a two shoulder, one shoulder or just a waist belt carrier.

Let’s talk about the waist belt carrier for a second! I LOVE IT! The unique carrier seat that is designed as part of the waist belt allows you to COMFORTABLY carry your toddlers (up to 3 years old) on your hip. You know how your 2 and 3 year olds want to be carried ALL THE TIME?!? Yet, they get heavier and heavier as time goes on and your arms (and back!) may start to ache carrying them in the traditional pick-them-up-and-throw-them-on-your-hip way. Not with the HIPSTER! The HIPSTER gives the toddler a seat on your hip and distributes the weight so that it’s actually more comfortable to carry them. No joke! It works.

MiaMily Hipster

I’m truly a big fan of this new carrier! The MiaMily HIPSTER is a carrier that grows with your baby from 3 months all the way into toddlerhood! It will be available next month for sale for $169 and I highly recommend that you pre-order because I have a feeling that they are going to be so popular that they will keep selling out!


Make sure you watch our Baby Gizmo video to get an up close and personal look at the new MiaMily HIPSTER carrier and see the 9 different carry positions.

And that’s not all! We not only have given you the exclusive first look at the HIPSTER but we also are throwing a GIVEAWAY to celebrate! Plus, we are not only giving away one HIPSTER but we are turning this into a Win one for YOU AND YOUR FRIEND Party!!!

  1. I’ve been checking couple of similar products for the last couple of months and they all look the same but the price is different even the products looks the same just different brand name. Been choosing between Baby Nari, I-Angel, Pognae, Happy Bear, Aeibao, etc… and still confused on which one is better and safe for me to carry my baby.

  2. i know contest is closed and all, but, can i just say: lookin good (foxier than usual ) , Hollie! you seem to be aging backwards or something. Whats your secret?

  3. I would like to win because it would make carrying around a little one so much easier on the back and it would help out a friend too!

  4. In researching baby carriers this looks like one of the best ones and I will add it to my baby registry. I love that it grows with baby.

  5. We are expecting our first and were on the fence about getting a carrier but I think this review made us a believer! When it’s available next month (assuming we don’t win one) will it be at all baby retailers?

  6. Iwould love to win this carrier as a single momma without a vehicle at the moment I’m gonna be doing a lot of walking so this would come in handy!

  7. I’d love to win because we have baby #3 on the way and there’s no way we’re getting a Triple stroller!! I’d also love to win simply because I love wearing them when they are really little and need a Good carrier.

  8. I would love one for my baby girl!! We need a carrier of some sort for her, but just don’t have the money to get one yet. So interested to see this carrier in person!

  9. i have a toddler, and my second on the way. So I definitely could use this carrier. I saw this at a baby event and they let me try it on. I love the different options of wearing my baby.

  10. I would love this! I bought a wrap when my baby was a few weeks old and now it hurts my back and shoulders when I use it.. this would be a lifesaver

  11. I have a baby on the way and really want to check out as many carrier options as possible. This would be a great chance for me to try one!

  12. With another one on the way and an overactive toddler, a new carrier that asked to me to carry EITHER child would be a blessing! Especially since my toddler has apparently forgotten how to walk anywhere! 😉

  13. I love that this grows with your child so you can use it beyond infant months. We all know what it’s like to suddenly hear, “Momma, my legs hurttttt.” This would definitely come in handy with baby #2.

  14. I would be so grateful to win one! I am having my third baby in 3.5 years next month and my back and arms will need a break and to be free to care for two toddlers boys while I hold my new baby girl! I love that the company donates a can of formula to an orphanage for every carrier sold!

  15. I would like to win the carrier because we own two popular brands but they hurt both my husband’s and my back. I like the actual seat which I think will help take away some of the baby weight off during carrying and I think the baby would be more comfortable.

  16. I have a Bjorn and was so sad when I learned about hip dysplasia as my little man loves to be worn. Would LOVE to win this ergonomical carrier! I love how versatile it is!

  17. This would be perfect for me and my sister in law who is due with number two in November, it would be the best gift ever. And since I’m currently trying for baby number two too this would be a life saver.

  18. I would love to have this. My 3 month old like to be held all the time. I have 3 other children that I have to get around for school or just for the day but my baby doesn’t like to be put down so I can help the other so this would be very helpful for me. Thank you for the opportunity.

  19. I would like to win this because it is an awesome product that I would like to try and honestly I dont have the money to buy a carrier and if I dont win one then I probably won’t get one.

  20. I have one of those toddlers and would love too win this to help with my back. I still BF and ipthis would help alleviate the back pain, plus this is awesome. I am so excited to be able to gift it to someone if I won as well. Thank you for the amazing giveaway.

  21. It’s so versatile! Our 6 month old has decided she doesn’t like to be worn facing inwards anyway. We need something new!

  22. Omg I have been trying to get one of these since seeing them on Kickstarter. I would love one of these I have a 6m old and a 2 yr old. This would make my life so much easier.

  23. LOVE the flexibility this carrier offers! And that they have included all the extras, something I’ve never seen before. Usually you have to buy the extras. Granted, a cheaper price point without them might be nice, but I like the love they’re showing the public by just including them rather than making you pay more separately. Like the great safe facing out option! My husband would love this carrier, so I’d like to win one. He finds out Beco a little difficult to use, lol.

  24. I would love to win, because I have baby worn 5 kids so far and I would love a carrier that can extend my back comfort and the ease of wearing baby #6

  25. I have wanted this carrier ever since they had their Kickstarter Campaign!! I could never afford a carrier so I have been trying to win one for awhile now. Fingers crossed this may be my lucky entry!!

  26. Like the style and versatility of this carrier, it appears to be cooler than the one I used three years ago w/ baby #1. Would love to have this one for baby #2.

  27. I’d love the Hipster because my 2 is a big kid and loves to be held! Although I have biceps of steel, my back does get tired after holding him for a while, and this would be a godsend for me!!

  28. I would like to win because I have never had a new carrier. I use an ergo everyday. Someone gave it to me but it is old and faded 🙁 I need something new!

  29. When I was at the club momme best of products event this summer Hollie and met you we spoke a little about the Mia Mily I got home did some more research and was very upset I didn’t take a closer look that afternoon! I have a very very sensitive back had been bed ridden to much because of it and a few percedures to heel it! This would be amazing for me and my baby! Hollie thanks so much for doing all your amazing videos! I love it!

  30. I would love to win one so I can forward face my child as my current carrier doesn’t do that. Plus I’m a member of a baby wearing group and I’d be the first one to own one and show it off

  31. I would love to win this because i have a 2 year old who loves to be carried and i’m pregnant with our second, so it would get lots of use!!

  32. I was just thinking that I needed something like this! We have a 5 year old, 4 year old, 2 year old, and 6 month old. It would be perfect for the 2 year old and 6 month old. So cool!!

  33. I have a big baby boy Colton and I love the seat on the MiaMily HIPSTER!! He does not like some wraps because he gets too hot. I think this one would keep him cool.

  34. I’d love to have this for my twins!! Monmy & Grandma like the sound of the support and daddy likes structured carriers that are versatile. It’s so hard keeping 2 very mobile 9 month olds in check when you’re alone!

  35. The MiaMily HIPSTER carrier looks amazing! Not only would it be awesome to have a carrier with 9 different options… It just looks SO comfortable to wear! Really would like the option of letting my yet to arrive baby #2 be carried facing out safely and supported. But also like that I can wear them facing me so I can continue to breastfeed hands free!!! It’s all about being hands free!
    That’s why I’d love to win this!
    Love learning about new products! Thanks for the info & opportunity to win this giveaway! Great looking useful prize for sure!

  36. I need this my little one is about to turn 3 months and the moby wrap is a hassle when she is wiggling and im trying to tie knots like a boy scout

  37. I need this!!! I have been researching many carriers, but can’t afford the good ones at this time. 🙁 I have a bad back, so I need one that is easy, and evenly distributes baby’s weight. I have a Moby, but now that my little guy is getting bigger, (8mo, and 16 lb) I’ve been looking into others. This would be such a HUGE blessing/answered prayer!!! 🙂

  38. With baby #3 on the way, I’m soon going to need a hands-free way to snuggle with the babe while caring for the rest of my family.

  39. This is the kind of carrier I have been looking for! Versatile so that it works for all kids and all caregivers! My whole family can use it to carry the baby, I love it!

  40. I so want to win this for my niece. She is a nurse and on her feet all day, plus she has a new baby. How this would help the physical stress of carrying the baby, and being on her feet. I love it!

  41. For some reason my baby has decided she hates her stroller, this carrier looks like it would make commuting so much easier and less painful!!!!

  42. This carrier is so versatile! I watch kids in my home ages newborn to 3 so this would be a huge help in managing the 4 of them. Plus I could use it for my 3 yr old for trips with our family instead of lugging the stroller.

  43. I’m a big fan of the Ergo, so this looks like it is right up my alley too. I would love to try one out. The Ergo is the only way I can navigate the grocery store with 2 under 2.

  44. I have a little one that wants to be held ALL the time. I love the hip “seat!” I also have a neighbor that could definitely use one of these with her new baby.

  45. What a great giveaway! I would love to win so that my friend, Erin, would get one for her baby (due soon!) and I would have one for my little guy who is 10 months, Silas. He’s a sweet baby that likes to be held close to his Mama so this would be perfect!

  46. This carrier looks fantastic! The hip carry option for toddlers is very unique and would be great for myself and my sister-in-law to win (she has 6 kids and the youngest two are 3 and 2 and love being carried!!)!!

  47. I am so excited about the Hipster!!! I think the hipster would help my 3 yr old feel more “included” after her sister is born

  48. I would love to win because I really need this for carrying my toddler. She just turned 2 this month, but she is big for her age, and today when I picked her up I threw my back out. It was awful. I am still in agony, and the advice going forward is to simply not carry her any more. However, this is not realistic so I will be looking for a good carrier to use for the times that having her walk or going in a stroller is not an option.

  49. So excited for a new carrier that you can face baby forward in! My 4 month old loves to watch or eat, so facing in is not always the best.

  50. I’d like to win, because I have a very long to do list, that just keeps getting longer. Being able to wear her, would enable me to get stuff done. Unfortunately, there is no money in our small budget for a suitable carrier.

  51. I would like it for myself because my son is a big boy and even though he’s one, he still doesn’t really hold with his legs when he’s onmy hip:) the other one would be for my sister in law who is due in February.

  52. I would love this carrier because my large 9 month old has outgrown his infant carrier and I would love one like this that I could use until he is a toddler.

  53. I would love to win one of these. My husband and I cannot find a carrier that suits the both of us, so this is one item we are really struggling with.

  54. What a great carrier! I’m a mom of 4. I’d love to try this with my 5 month old and my two year old. I love the seat in this carrier and I love that it comes with the chew pads. Those are a must for every carried baby. 🙂

  55. I have a week old baby boy and a 2 year old daughter and currently do not have a carrier, I need one!! Two kids are a lot of work and this would free up my hands & keep bebe close!

  56. I would love to win one for my daughter, my grandbaby has had health issues and because of those she likes to be worn to feel safe and close to momma.

  57. i love baby wearing and so does my baby boy. Wish I had a different one than I currently have though. This would be perfect!

  58. I would love to win one because it looks like it may be a very supportive front facing carrierb I’m not usually a fan of them due to baby’s hip position, but this one seems different!

  59. I would love to win the MiaMily Hipster because I am looking for that elusive carrier that doesn’t make my back hurt. Would love to try this one.

  60. I am a first time mom. My newborn is 6 weeks old. I want to try baby wearing but I’m scared/intimidated by all the carriers. I would love to try this one.

  61. The Miamily hipster would be perfect for me & my 3.5 month old. I tried slings, Baby Bjorn & Baby K’Tan… None if them were comfortable for me.

  62. I would love to win a carrier for myself and my niece Brandi. It is so much easier to get out and about with our older two children when I can easily carry the baby.

  63. I really need this. I could only afford an Infantino carrier. It hurts my shoulders badly, and seems uncomfortable for my daughter. I love going on walks, and my daughter likes to be in a carrier instead of her stroller. Please pick me!

  64. I would love this carrier! My baby girl is 6 months and just keeps getting bigger so my carrier I have now is about to be retired and I would love a new one :))

  65. This is AMAZING! What an innovative product. I really like the hip seat option. And the fact that they really thought of how the carrier could grow with baby. I’m really wanting this one. And such a great product! Thanks Holly and Baby Gizmo for always showing us great products!!!

  66. I love to win this because I love that this carrier offer so much positions and it doesn’t have to be the whole carrier. Love it for toddler where I can just use a little support.

  67. As a foster parent of littles I never know what age or size child I may end up with so the versatility of this carrier would be great!

  68. My granddaughter will be one on Sunday, November 2. This would be perfect for her because she loves to be carried by her mommy all of the time. Love it!

  69. Our first is due in March, and we’ve been searching for the perfect carrier. From what I saw in the video, this fits the bill!

  70. Turns out my twin boys like being in a carrier and my 2 year old still loves being held so this carrier would safe my back for sure!

  71. I love and am very into baby wearing.Especially because for the life of me I can’t get a good triple stroller. (Baby Jogger– WHY DID YOU HAVE TO STOP MAKING YOURS?!) So I wear baby- a lot. I like having a selection of carriers for him because some days he is more comfy in one than the other– or I am.

  72. I would love to win one to use when my little one arrives later this year. I have had back pain issues for years and really need a carrier with the best support possible.

  73. This would be wonderful for Abigail and I. She has been in a wrap off nd on since she was a week old. Love how versatile this is!

  74. I would love one so my husband and I can be healthy active parents come March and instill those healthy habits and love of outdoors to our baby.

  75. The HIPSTER is absolutely brilliant! I don’t even know where to start…the fact that it can be used 9 different ways (hip, front, back…this is awesome!) is what sealed the deal for me- I have to have one of these!

  76. I am a fan of products that grow with baby 🙂 . I would also love to own this carrier!!! My son just turned one and I don’t have a carrier for him. Thanks for the giveaway.

  77. Id love to win because I wear both my sons (sometimes at the same time), ages 2 and 1 month, and am always on the lookout for a product that will give us even more flexibility.

  78. I would love one because I was introduced to them through their kickstarter but was never able to contribute due to financial difficulties. Both the husband and I have bad back problems and we need a carrier that fits my and his super large frames.

  79. So I can keep up with my 4 year old and have my 6 month old attached to me while we are watching my 15 and 16 year olds participating in high school sports 🙂 I am a active busy mama!!!

  80. I’m due with baby #3 in April and have children at home. I need to be able to get things done around the house and this would be great.

  81. I’m due with #2 in January and want to baby wear a lot more — for the closeness and for free hands while trying to manage a toddler too

  82. I would love to have a carrier with this much versatility. My baby would love to face out while being in an ergonomical carrier.

  83. I have three friends due within the next week-2 months and woukd love to give two of them this gift! If only i had this awesone carrier back in 96!

  84. The MiaMily HIPSTER Carrier would be a blessing for Tutu”s (grandmother in Hawaiian) as well! I’m a Tutu for 2 yr old and now a newborn, the Hipster would certainly help my lower back carrying the toddler when mom is holding new baby. Hopefully, not too often with carrying the toddler, but as we all know, moments of attention happens….. So HIPSTER would be soooo helpful for Tutu’s!!

  85. I want to win because I can never have too many carriers! I’m not familiar with this brand and it’s always nice to try something new.

  86. I would love to win this baby carrier for our little bundle due in January! As a military wife, my husband and I move quite frequently, so I am ALWAYS looking for gadgets/tools/toys that are quality, but also multi-purpose. I don’t want to haul around a million things with each move so this is IDEAL! It can grow with baby and be used with #2 whenever he/she comes along. Though I am a member of a baby wearing group that has a great lending library, who knows if I will be so lucky with our next move. Awesome carrier!

  87. I would love to win one because this is baby #4 and i need a quick, easy solution to hold baby while getting things done. The wrap carriers take too long and others seem so flimsy for a newborn when mom is on the go. Babies don’t like to stay babies and I wish I could hold him/her forever.

  88. I’d love to win, because I’m due in December and am also launching my own daycare in January. All with a toddler running around too. So I need to be able to easily multi-task, and this carrier would make it so much easier!

  89. I ‘d like one for my son .
    he is 10 m now and loves beeing close to me.
    the carrier we have is already out of use 🙂

  90. I’d love to win this b/c I’ve yet to find a baby-wearing method that works for me and my back issues, but I think having it on my hips will help!

  91. Not only do I want to win because I have a toddler and hope to have more lil’s in the future but because I LOVE babywearing and would love to start a babywearing group here locally and have this as one of the many options people could try to see if they’d like to own one 🙂

  92. My beautiful son is almost 1 and loves to see the world. He loves to be on my back, but I am not the best in tying a rick so this would be amazing!!!

  93. I would love to finally test a babycarrier as only have wraps and mei tai. I hope that this way my husband will carry our baby as it’s easier !! Thank you

  94. I LOVE this carrier with all the different ways to carry the baby. I especially like the hip carry position as they grow and still want to be held!

  95. I would love to win one to help save my back once our first little arrives in February. Back problems run in the family, so anything I can do to prevent or delay that would be great. It would also be easy and adjustible for others to use. I love the wide belt situated on the hips and the fact that it is so versatile – very smart design!

  96. I’d love to have one for those quick up/downs at the zoo! Especially since every baby falls asleep there! I could just pop the top back on and keep on going!

  97. I have been trying and trying for about a month now to win a baby carrier for our first baby, which is due in February. Carriers are expensive, so if I could win one, that would be great!!! 🙂

  98. Would love to win this hipster. I had a generic carrier with my last child and he wasn’t a big fan, wasn’t comfortable for him. Would be awesome for my babies that will be due next year.

  99. I’d love to win one bc I have three friends having baby showers and these gifts ae getting expensive. Plus this would be an amazing gift!

  100. I’d like to win because I am a first time moment in need of an easy to use comfy carrier, and I love that it has 9 different positions.

  101. This carrier looks amazing! I really like its many configurations. I think they will prove very helpful to any parent. Great video review 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!

  102. I would love to win this because I have two little boys that always want mom to carry them! I have had major problems with my hips since I had my first ten years ago and it gets worse when I carry the little ones a lot. I am hoping a good carrier would lessen my pain.

  103. I would love to win one to carry my little one around! I have tendonitis in my wrist so this would definitely help relieve some of the pain! 🙂

  104. Hi I’d love to win this carrier because my 18 mo old has special needs and it would make life easier. She doesn’t have good tone to help hold her legs around my hips when I hold her so it’s a bit exhausting at times.

  105. My daughter hates the carrier we have and will only tolerate the ring sling for a short time. Would love an ergonomic carrier that she can face out in.

  106. I would love to win one because the one I have hurts my back. The support is just not as good as it could be. This carrier looks like it would be much better for my back! 🙂
