This past weekend I went to my friend’s baby shower, which is the first of many to come in the next few months. I’ve hit that stage in life where many of my friends are pregnant, so I find myself checking out baby bags and accessories often. In 2005, I wrote about the Gucci Baby Carrier, and that post still gets tons of comments to this day.
I want to revisit the idea of a designer baby carrier, and I want to know where you stand. Many moms and dads use baby carriers for their kids regularly, but I’ve never had a real-life sighting of a designer baby carrier in action. I’ve seen plenty of moms with everything from designer duds to designer diaper bags, but the designer baby carrier remains elusive.
The point of the carrier is the same as all others: to transport the baby on your person. There are a few options from Gucci, but I am sharing the classic GG print along with a zoo patch, because I think it’s cute. This carrier is meant for a baby between 7 and 20 lbs, which won’t last that long. What do you think: would you carry your baby in a designer baby carrier? Shop this one via Gucci for $850.
