What is a Cairis Carrier?

The Cairis is a beautiful & comfortable buckle waist, tie strap carrier that has been thoughtfully designed by Mum of 3, Zoe, to bring all the features she wished to find on a baby carrier.

It is ergonomic and has unique elements designed for comfort and optimal positioning of your baby. There is no digging from webbing and buckles like many carriers,

Featuring Oscha's unique jacquard woven sling fabric, customers love this style of carrier as it is easy to use yet gives the snug adjustability of a woven wrap.

Hip Healthy
The Cairis has been approved by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute as a ‘Hip Healthy’ product.

For me it's the best carrier. Convenient with the buckle waist but adjustable with the wrap straps.
