Earlier this month, Nathan Day, a father in Arizona, launched a new product I think parents with infants are sure to love. After suffering a dislocated shoulder, Day decided there had to be a more comfortable, ergonomic way to lug an infant carrier around.
Together with a team of entrepreneurs, Day invented a device that latches onto the hoop handle of a baby carrier and changes the parent’s grip to reduce the strain on the wrist. It’s called the LugBug, and it’s meant to be compatible with any carrier. It even comes in multiple colors. Check them out here.
Any parent who has had to contend with carrying an infant inside a carrier knows it makes for an uncomfortable and tricky transfer between destinations. I remember having to lean over to the side so the carrier would not knock into my legs, all while making sure I did not knock the baby carrier into anything as I passed through narrow gates and walkways.
Thank you, LugBug, for adding to the list of modern conveniences available to parents! Happy, healthy parenting!
What do you think of this invention? Would you use one? Have you found easier ways to lug your baby around in a carrier?
