November 15, 2006 One of the problems with a new munchkin is that they grow and grow and sooner or later the little tackers get to the point where they’re just physically too much to carry. Accordingly, we’re always on the lookout for a better baby carrier because, well, children are probably the most important thing on the planet … you won’t be thinking about much else when you’re on your death bed. The PortaMEe is a hands-free baby carrier with lumbar support to reduce back fatigue, a gel padded shoulder strap for comfort, and eye-contact with bubby.

The PortaMEe is suitable for children aged five months to three years up to 35 lbs. It is lightweight and holds plenty of baby gear for parents on the go, including easy-to-reach pockets for your mobile phone, Blackberry, wallet, and even an insulated bottle holder and detachable hooded cape. The child carrier is trouble-free when your arms are otherwise occupied, and easily holds diapers, boarding passes, identification and even a disposable changing pad.

The lumbar flexible orthopaedic support bars promote proper posture and body alignment; its lumbar padding and breathable mesh lining maximize comfort so you can carry your child with ease.
