Pimp My Beco.



I have three Beco baby carriers. And only one baby. And only one body, for that matter. I have two Geminis and a Soleil. I’m not even sorry. I like keeping one in the house and one in the car. Though I’m still sort of annoyed that I bought them right before Beco added a sweet pocket to the Geminis. And have you seen the new designs? Oh my god. So cute. And while the lack of a pocket will likely forever vex me, I am no longer sad that I bought a boring black carrier before I knew better.

I took a leap of faith, and a deep breath, and I crossed my fingers and toes, and ordered a custom carrier and strap cover set from a nice lady on etsy. Nancy at MyCottageTime made these beauties for me.



The peacock feather fabric is so pretty! I found the fabric on etsy, too, from MoonaFabrics. Nancy was really easy to work with. I just sent her the link for the fabric that I liked, and she ordered it and adjusted my custom price accordingly. Which meant that I did not get to see the print in person until my package arrived, so I was really blown away by how pretty it is in real life. You could have knocked my over with a feather (carrier cover)! Ugh. Sorry. Irresistible puns are my kryptonite.



The total with custom fabric upcharge and shipping and an extra set of strap covers was $59.45. It was at my doorstep just ten days from purchase, which is great speed considering that Nancy first had to order and receive the special fabric. I love it. I just love it.

Did I mention that I love it?

I think I am spending too much money at Buy Buy Baby, but I should not be surprised.  It’s right there in the name.

Today I went to find a baby carrier.  Monday is the twelve hour college orientation day and baby seems to hate the K’tan.  I think she is getting too hot.

I did tons of research last night and decided on the Boba 4G, but it turns out that Buy Buy Baby has tons of carriers on their website and hardly any in the store.  Luckily, someone had returned a Beco Gemini to the store so I bought that one.  Basic black, $150 but I had a 20% off coupon.  So far I LOVE it.

I also bought some other things.
