What a fantastic invention, this is basically a bum-bag (remember them?) but instead of a bag there is a seat. It is invaluable if your child is walking and refuses to get in his/her pushchair or if your child just prefers to be at the same height as everyone else. If your child is too heavy to carry everywhere and breaks your back when you put them in a normal baby carrier (like my son), this is what you need. It takes the pressure away from your spine and arms and you hardly notice the weight. The seat is placed over your hip and you then sit your child straddled on the seat and then use one arm to prevent them falling backward. It really takes ... Read the complete review

I have just recently purchased one of these Hippychick Hipseats, 2nd hand on ebay - for a bargain price of £13, and I am absolutely thrilled with it..... My youngest son is 6mths old and weighs 22lb. As he is not yet sitting up carrying him around all day is like dragging around a sack of potatoes, because he doesn't bear any of his weight, and by the end of the day my back is so painful from sticking my hip out to support him, and my arms are developing muscles I never knew I had (nor particularly want!!).

I bought the hip seat (as it was then called) when my daughter was approximately 6 months old (it isn't suitable for younger babies) as my back and arms were starting to protest at constantly carrying around a small child. I'd previously tried carriers and slings at various stages but none of them suited us. I wasn't overly convinced about this one but thought I'd give it a try. We loved it. My daughter was still carried by me in exactly the same manner but there was little or no strain on my back and I only had to gently wrap my arm around her to ensure she didn't fall backwards. It was almost like having two hand free. It was comfortable ... Read the complete review

A Hippychick is a thick canvas belt containing a sturdy (yet extremely lightweight) wedge-shape platform. The whole thing is secured around your waist by Velcro and a buckle and the idea is that the baby sits on the platform eliminating the need to stick your hip out (lets face it - we all do it!) I take my Hippychick everywhere with me; there are shops that I couldn?t get in to with a buggy that I can now go to with the baby on the Hippychick and I?ve wandered around several National Trust properties recently buggy-less and in total comfort. I seriously do not know how I coped without this product. You do not realise the strain that you put on your ... Read the complete review
