Onya Baby Cruiser Carrier Review

Onya Baby Carrier

Onya Baby makes unique high quality soft-structured baby carriers that can be worn on your front or back. Onya Baby carriers feature an integrated chair harness, which allows you to transform almost any adult chair into a safe baby seat.  This makes the Onya Baby Cruiser Carrier super versatile and perfect for on-the-go families.

We had a chance to try out the Onya Baby’s Cruiser Carrier (Leaf Green/Umber) earlier in the summer with our 24 month old and I must say that I am very impressed with the smart design and the added baby seat feature.  This is the very first time I see a carrier that offers both products in one (travel baby seat + back and front carrier).

The Onya Baby Cruiser is made of 100% soft brushed cotton, it has been tested for safety to 75 pounds and it is comfortable and supportive for both baby/toddler and mom. We went out to the park, the Science Center, took the train and went for walks and I had the chance to carry my toddler on my front and back. Both positions were very comfortable but we both prefer the front carry (personal preference).

Onya Baby
I find the baby seat feature is specially useful when you are out with younger babies. I wish I knew about Onya Baby when we went all over Europe with our then 9 month old. Most cafes and restaurants we visited had no baby high chairs and it would have been wonderful to have the option to use the carrier to help secure baby safely to the adult chairs.

I tried the seat feature with my son and he was pretty happy sitting on the chair. It just shows that even 2 year olds can use the chair harness if needed, even though I recommend it for younger children.

The Onya Baby Cruiser carrier has many other features that I found useful, like the double-entry/side-zippered koala pouch and patch pocket, perfect for carrying your keys or IDs.  I also like the tuck-away sleeping hood, always useful when little ones take a nap or if it is too sunny or perhaps a bit rainy.  And finally I really like the fact that the carrier is machine washable, specially if you are using it with little messy eaters.
