Tushbaby vs Miamily: ergonomic design
Tushbaby: Tushbaby’s hip seat carrier is designed to provide the ultimate back and lumbar support while carrying, feeding, nursing, and even playing with your baby—and it stores all your stuff while doing it. Designed by moms, the Tushbaby was created with safety first and functionality as a must. By strapping the hipseat high and tight above your natural waist, you decrease the amount of pressure on your upper body, neck, and back. Tushbaby’s plush elevated seat also supports healthy hip development for your baby by placing their hips and legs in the Pediatrician recommended ‘M’ position. Tushbaby Lite is also a great option with a lighter design, 3 pockets to stash your stuff, and a slimmer waistband height.
We took time and care to ensure our babies would be safe on the Tushbaby, and now yours will be too! Your entire body will thank you for the support, as will your babies. Give those arms a break.
Miamily: Miamily offers three versions of their hipseat carrier (the Hipster Essential, The Hipster Plus, and The Hipster Air) which can all be used in various carry positions or transformed into a double shoulder carrier. Miamily’s carriers all include a padded hip seat that is intended to be ergonomic for your baby’s hips, encouraging that same natural “super squat” position as the Tushbaby carrier to promote healthy hip development.
Tushbaby vs Miamily: baby’s weight and age
Tushbaby: The Tushbaby hip seat carrier can be used from infancy to 3 years of age, or 45 lbs. From 0-6 months, Tushbaby can be used as breast- or bottle-feeding support. Once your child can hold their head up on their own, Tushbaby can be used in 3 additional carrying positions, meaning four carry positions total are available where your child can hang out while you hold on.
Miamily: Age and weight limits may vary based on which of the three carrier options and which mode of carrying you choose. In general, Miamily’s carriers can be used from 4-48 months or up to 44 pounds. This is with the exception that the Hipster Air is intended for use up to 33 lbs. Like the Tushbaby carrier, the Miamily can be used for newborns in a feeding position, with the baby laying across the hipseat.
Tushbaby vs Miamily: carry positions
Tushbaby: The Tushbaby carrier’s versatility allows it to be used throughout many developmental stages with its four carry positions. Your baby will have plenty of ways to stay comfortable, from face-to-face carrying, to side-carrying, to front-facing, and even in the feeding position. In the newborn phase, much of your time will be spent feeding your baby. The Tushbaby carrier is the best baby carrier for breastfeeding, with its memory foam-lined seat providing your baby with the ultimate comfy spot for feeds. In the feeding position, you’ll have plenty of support for a safe feeding posture, whether you are breast or bottle feeding. With so many uses, you can maximize space and value with Tushbaby.
Miamily: The carrier positions vary based on which of the three Miamily carriers you choose. Both The Hipster Essential and The Hipster air offer 3 carrying positions: face-to-face carrying, forward-facing, or back carrying when using the double shoulder straps. Of course, these different carrying options are only suitable at certain ages, so be sure you research when it’s safe to switch it up. The Hipster Plus can be used in 6 different carry positions in total, a combination of various positions with or without the shoulder straps.
Tushbaby vs Miamily: caregiver size
Tushbaby: The Tushbaby carrier can accommodate caregivers of many shapes and sizes. Tushbaby’s waistband is designed to fit 23-44 inch waists, and the Waistband Extender can be purchased separately to add an extra 23 inches around the waist for a total of 70 inches. The Extender can be a great option to have handy for other family members who may want to use the Tushbaby carrier as well.
Speaking of size, let's talk boobs. Because the Tushbaby solely wraps around the waist, it’s the perfect carrier for large busts. Let your tatas and your baby breathe with no added wraps or straps covering your chest.
Miamily: Like Tushbaby, Miamily offers an extender belt if you need extra length around the waist. The Miamily carriers can fit 130 cm around the waist, and the extender belt can offer another 50 cm.
Tushbaby vs Miamily: comfort
Tushbaby: One of the biggest advantages of the Tushbaby carrier is how comfortable it is, no matter who wears it. With a plush ergonomic hipseat made from high-quality materials and a padded waistband, you can carry your little one longer and more comfortably. Enjoy the relief from your baby’s weight being evenly distributed across your body as you seamlessly support your baby with one arm.
And have we mentioned there is no heavy fabric? This is a huge plus to get you through any season. Gone are the days of adjusting your baby carrier to meet the requirements of every outfit. Plus, for hot days, you and your baby can enjoy the breeze with Tushbaby’s open design.
Miamily: While we wouldn’t bash another brand’s comfortability, we can say that every Tushbaby is made with craftsmanship and high-quality materials to ensure maximum comfort and support. Miamily promotes a comfortable wearing experience, and we’d encourage you to check out what others have to say about both products!
Tushbaby vs Miamily: safety
Tushbaby: The Tushbaby hipseat carrier has been approved by global-wide safety standards and verified through SGS testing—a world-leading inspection, testing, and verification company. At Tushbaby, we know how important safety is for parents, which is why we underwent rigorous testing and safety certification processes. If that wasn’t enough, Tushbaby is so safe it’s recommended by doctors, with endorsements ranging from Pediatricians to Spine Surgeons.
Miamily: As with any carrier, wearing it correctly is an essential part of keeping your baby safe. With straps that can be detached, it would be critical that you buckle up appropriately with each use of the Miamily.
Tushbaby vs Miamily: maintenance and care
Tushbaby: As with anything your baby sits in, it’s bound to need some TLC after a few uses. Tushbaby maintenance is simple. No matter what hits that seat (spit up, milk, mom’s latte, you name it), Tushbaby can be easily cleaned as it’s machine washable. Just remove the plastic insert, throw it in a cold wash, then lay it flat to dry. For our Black and Sand vegan leather Tushbabies, simply wipe down as needed. Pro tip: Don’t forget to empty those storage pockets first.
When you’re not using Tushbaby, simply fold it up to keep it organized and out of the way, saving space for all the other necessities your baby needs. You can even throw it in your chic vegan leather Totebaby to have handy while you are out and about.
Miamily: All three of Miamily’s hip carriers are stated to be machine washable. The Hipster Air was designed with a valve used to inflate/deflate to adjust the level of firmness of the carrier. That said, it may take some deflating, depending on where and how you will store your carrier.
Tushbaby vs Miamily: budget
Tushbaby: With the four different ways you can carry your baby, plus the ability to stash your stuff, Tushbaby delivers a whole lot of value no matter your budget. Plus, it doubles as a breastfeeding pillow, so you can use it even more!
The Tushbaby carrier has five roomy storage pockets, which means you can carry your kid, stash your stuff, and save your back with one carrier—talk about a great bang for your buck and an excellent travel baby carrier. It’s TSA-friendly and doesn’t count towards your baggage requirement, so you can wear it through the airport or store it in your luggage or carry-on for convenient use. For just $85, you can simplify your life and travels with Tushbaby.
Miamily: The Miamily carriers range from $99-$139. While designed in Switzerland, the Miamily is produced in China, which may cause additional shipping costs or delays.
