We go on lots of hikes in Newfoundland so I ordered this coat to make sure he was warm over the winter on our adventures in his carrier. I was hoping it would replace my other winter coat as well.
I'm overall happy with the coat but have a few issues:
1) It isn't quite as warm as I hoped - it's a polyester fill on the inner coat. I think we'll be reasonably comfortable to about -4 degrees. Probably shouldn't be taking little one out on a long walk much colder that than anyways but it means the coat won't replace my winter coat.
2) Sizing - I went a generous size up but I maybe could have even gone two as by the time you have your carrier underneath (Ergo 360) it is a bit tight across the back when reaching forward. My baby is 4 months so I am a bit concerned the add in panel won't be roomy enough as he grows. For reference I'm 5'8" , 145lbs, and a US size 8 with narrow shoulders.
3) Quality: as another reviewer had posted, the two jackets are secured together with 3 buttons - one of the sleeve buttons flew off the moment I put it on
Things I like so far:
1) Ease of use - lil' dude loves facing forward and peering out from the coat when we go to the market. Much better for forward and tummy to tummy than our previous solution of the extra large men's jacket
2) Water repellent: The outer coat beaded rain well in a light shower.
3) Length - covers my bum and his feet
I did a lot of researching before I found this coat - there was some information but not many reviews so I knew it was a bit of a risk... hoping this review is helpful to someone! I was between 3 and 4 stars but ultimately went with 4 stars as it will meet most of my needs at the price point.
This is my second Chimparoo trek (my first one broke after being well used). I find it very easy to use and it is so comfortable both for me and my little.
Bought this to wrap both my twins in and it’s been great!
I love them. Item arrived to France without any problem ! Thank you.
Je les adore ! Elles sont arrivées en France sans problème.
I bought this as a gift for my friend to welcome her first baby! She loves it and so does her baby girl.
It is perfect for my infant and toddler
We tried these for our heavy wetting boys, and are very happy having them in our stash. Our boys quickly flood the front half of just a hemp prefold, adding the stay dry gives us a bit longer between changes, absorbs very quickly. Of course the fleece keeps them more comfortable and dry feel, which is probably the best part! Recommend for any boy moms!
I’ve been using this daily with a newborn for the past month. It’s really soft and easy to wrap with. And as an added bonus it’s really beautiful
Tula Baby Carrier *Canada Only*
We love our new Tula Explore carrier! Our little one is 14 months and has always preferred to look out when being held or worn. This carrier was a great fit. It’s very comfortable to wear and accommodates my plus size body type with ample space.
Meggan’s service was also amazing and very appreciated.
I was looking for a summer carrier, and bought the Tula Explore Coast after trying the Egobaby Omni Cool Air Mesh. The latter did not agree well with my little ones sensitive skin as the leg and arm openings were both mesh and rubbed his skin. I couldn't keep him in it for longer than a few minutes. The Tula Explore Coast was a bit more expensive than I would have liked to spend BUT so worth the money. It keeps both baby and mama cool during long walks and hikes AND baby loves being in it. When he's not busy looking around and exploring, he falls right asleep in it. It's been a great investment and based on the quality of the product, I'm sure it will last us a long time.
Meggan's customer service was also tremendous and I would definitely purchase from Yellow Birch again!
I didn’t pay for tracked shipping so my order took a little bit longer to get to me. Meggan replied to my emails super quick when I was worried it may have gotten lost in the mail. She was super helpful and asked to email her if I didn’t receive it within two days of speaking with her. Thankfully it arrived and the Moon Blossom print was even more beautiful in person than the stock photo that I fell in love with. I love Thirsties products and I will definitely be shopping here again in the future! Thank you, Brianne Moore- Barrie Ontario.

I always buy from yellow birch. Shes wonderful and so helpful! Support small business owners.
I love Wrapsody Hybrid Wraps. They have all the pros of a Woven and stretchy wrap in one! Great for my big/heavy baby and my toddler! They are all beautifully dyed. Jennifer is one of my favorites
Fantastic brand, fast shipping, and fantastic customer service! You won’t be disappointed buying Thirsties from Yellow Birch. The double gussets really help hold in explosions. You can even put them over disposables to prevent the dreaded explosion while traveling!
I got this carrier to take on a trip to Europe since my son had outgrown his old carrier. I was worried it would take long to arrive but it was shipped out right away and arrived the next day so I was able to practice wearing it around the house before we left. The carrier is excellent for my 45lb 100cm tall 4 year old and makes holding him so much easier! He has fallen asleep in it several times already while walking so it is obviously comfy. Older children want to be carried too and this carrier makes it much easier to do so! I highly recommend getting a toddler carrier and Meggan from Yellow Birch is very helpful and great to deal with!
Wrap is beautifully breathable and has enough stretch that baby’s legs do not get cut into. Love my wrap and so does she.
A great carrier with super fast shipping:)
This wrap is super easy to set up and even easier to wear! Keeps our little nice and snug and let's me go hands free! The fabrics super soft and breathable and really cute. Love it
I love this ring sling! It’s the easiest carrier to use and my baby loves it.
I am so happy I bought this carrier and that I got it through Yellow Birch. The shipping was so fast and I really feel like a valued customer. I wanted to wait a bit before reviewing so I got a chance to put it through its paces. The very first time I took my son out in it he fell asleep within 5 minutes. It's comfortable, soft and beautiful. I couldn't be happier!
I purchased this beautiful Girasol wrap for a very good friend. She is having her second baby, and really wanted to get into wrapping rather than just using an SSC. I had this wrap myself when I was first learning to wrap. The stripes make it so easy for learning about top and bottom rails as well as tightening, and of course having an easy care wrap that is thin in hand is key for learning and a young baby! I bought this in her base size, so even as her baby grows, it will be supportive with double layers. Mostly though, I can't say enough about how beautiful the colours are in this wrap and love the extra strength the diamond weave lends to the wrap.
I purchased this carrier for my 3 month old. Although it was backordered for a few weeks from the manufacturer Meggan was sure to keep in touch about the status of the order.
I'm very happy with the purchase! It is lightweight, supportive, and comfortable. While I have yet to use it in really hot weather or water it certainly dries very quickly from a large amount of drool. A great summer carrier.
My order came very quickly and was in perfect shape! :) Would order again. The hand written note was a nice touch!
Awesome Ring Sling. So good and toddler worthy!
Tula Explore Baby Carrier *Canada Only*
My husband has been the only one to use the carrier so far, and he loves it. We also have a standard Tula but wanted to ability to have outward facing while front wearing.
Great product and versatile to suit our needs.
It’s an amazing lumbar support for my tula
The Tula Lumbar Support feels amazing and keeps the Tula strap from digging into your back (or belly during back carries). It really does make babywearing more comfortable!
We use Duo Wraps for both our kids and love them! The double gusset prevents leaks and blowouts (we have never had one with this brand) and the prints are adorable. We use with the Duo Hemp Prefolds, Apple Cheeks Microfleece Liners and Thirsties Hemp boosters at night for heavy wetting. Highly Recommend.
Awesome colours and nice to carry and feed hands free!
I ordered the Chimparoo Aquaterra size 7 on the advice of a friend, and we've been using it for two weeks now. I absolutely love it! And my son falls asleep within 15 minutes when he's in it. It's simple to use, lovely material, and a gorgeous pattern. Plus it came so quickly, and the package itself was lovely! There was even a hand-written note from Meggan, which was a great personal touch. And I always love supporting local businesses, so the fact that it came from Guelph made it that much better. We will be ordering again!
Ordered a Thirsties duo wrap I've been searching for and was so happy to get such a perfect bum placement without any request. Thank you so much! Super fast shipping even though I'm in the US.
I purchased the Tula as a baby shower gift. The website was easy to navigate and order from. I received a personal email and note from the website owner which was really nice. The package came on time and packaged well. Very happy.
