Designed by a babywearing consultant, the Neko ‘Switch’ Carrier has a deep seat that ensures your baby is carried in an ergonomic, spread-squat (M) position, from newborn to toddler.
The fully adjustable back panel grows with your baby, supporting their natural hip development in both front and back carry positions, while dual adjustable shoulder straps ensure a snug fit for petite parents or smaller babies, combined with a unique ‘2-option’ fitting system** which ensures greater flexibility and support for young babies – details below. A generously padded waist belt and legs out padding complete the comfort package.
Tested to EU safety standards and made from soft, supportive, jacquard woven cotton, the feature rich Neko Switch is an easy-to-use, versatile baby carrier that effortlessly transforms in practical, generous toddler carrier – simple, affordable luxury for today’s active families!

(**) PLEASE NOTE: A truly unique feature of the Neko Switch is the shoulder strap system which offers 2-points of attachment – the standard, shoulder strap to mid body panel and the unique, shoulder strap to waistband option, designed specifically for babies 0-6 months.
If a carrier with shoulder strap to mid-panel attachments is ‘over-tightened’ it can flatten the fabric across babies back putting strain on their spine. Attaching the shoulder straps to the waistband avoids this possibility and supports babies spine in a natural curved position similar to that of a wrap, optimal for a young baby. The standard shoulder strap to side-panel fitting is then used from 6 months upward.
Stylish and aesthetic design ensures unused buckles fold away into their designated pockets, so there are no unsightly buckles dangling when not in use.
