Tushbaby can be used to carry children 0-3 years old, or up to 45lbs. As early as infancy, Tushbaby can be used for feeding and nursing support. Once your little one has full head and neck support, they can be carried in Tushbaby’s front-facing, side-facing, and face-to-face positions.
Tushbaby’s waistband is 46 inches long, but you lose a few inches where the two sides overlap to secure the Velcro. It fits a 43-inch waist and can be made longer with our Waistband Extender.
Yes! Our Waistband Extender attaches to the Velcro and buckles on the Tushbaby's waistband to add up to 23 inches in length. They are sold separately and come in a range of colors and fabrics for $14.99-$17.99.
Please note, the Waistband Extender only ships free when purchased with one or more Tushbabies.
We're not going to sit here and bash other brands that have jumped on the hip seat bandwagon, but we will tell you that every Tushbaby is made with craftsmanship, high-quality materials, and love. Unlike other brands that cut corners on quality to make their products less expensive, we've prioritized supporting both babies and their caregivers, and have gone through rigorous safety testing. Tushbaby is owned and operated by two moms from California who believe you get what you pay for, and that you and your baby deserve only the best!
Yes, because it’s safe, secure, and we love the sound of it.
A hip seat is a simple baby carrier that wraps around your waist and sits above your hips to help you carry your baby more comfortably, and with less hassle. Hipseat carriers also offer added convenience with built-in storage compartments, making it easy to carry your and your baby's items along with you without having to lug around a diaper bag.
While all of our Tushbabies are easy to clean, some need a little extra love due to the quality of the fabric. Always be sure to empty the storage pockets, remove the plastic insert, and fasten the velcro before washing.
Here’s a breakdown of how to wash our Tushbabies:
- Velvet and Polyester: Wash with cold water on gentle cycle only. Air dry flat. Do not put in dryer.
This applies to Grey, Black, Black & Gold, Chambray, Blue Stripe, Charcoal, Sable, & Silver.
- Vegan Leather: Wipe-down or hand wash with mild soap and water.
This applies to Cognac, Cream, Sand, and Vegan Leather Black.
- Snow Leopard & Tweed: Wipe-down or dry clean only. Do not machine wash.
Tushbaby on its own is not hands-free, and a caregiver must keep one hand on the child at all times; but now, you can take your Tushbaby hands-free by adding The Snug attachment! This 2-in-1 combo converts the Tushbaby to a full carrier, giving you all the benefits of a hip seat with the convenience and comfort of a wrap.
Tushbaby is meant to carry one child at a time. Parents of twins are often buying two—one for each parent to wear.
You can use the Tushbaby in 4 carry positions ranging from newborn to 36 months. Remember to wear it high and tight above your natural waist for the most comfortable position.
If you have a medical condition or are unsure if Tushbaby is the right product for you, we recommend consulting your doctor before purchasing or using it. If you have pain before or during use, you should not continue using Tushbaby. We also recommend switching the side that the seat is on and taking breaks after prolonged use.
If you have trouble with stability or walking, we do not recommend using Tushbaby.
Aww, you’re a good caregiver. Yes, Tushbaby has been approved by global-wide safety standards and verified through SGS testing. SGS is a world-leading inspection, verification, testing, and certification company.

Not just one! We have a few instructional videos that will help you with all the features, tips, and tricks for your Tushbaby. Make sure to wear your Tushbaby high and tight above your natural waist for the most comfortable carry position.
Tushbaby uses low-flammability materials like nylon and polyester, but we don't add flame retardants to our products, which can do more harm than good.

The Snug offers two positions to carry your child hands-free up to 36 months old. Children weighing between 12-45lbs can be comfortably positioned in the face-to-face position, while those weighing 16-45lbs can see the world in the front-facing position.
Do not use The Snug in the front-facing position until your child has full head and neck control.
The Snug connects to both sides of the Tushbaby carrier’s hipseat using straps with locking buckles that are permanently attached to The Snug. After the baby is placed on the Tushbaby’s seat, the wearer arranges The Snug's shoulder straps to create an "X" across their back before buckling the straps on the sides of the wearer’s torso.
For added safety, the neck support can be snapped closed to ensure the baby's airway remains unobstructed. The base of The Snug can also be manually cinched to better fit the baby’s legs and bottom.
The Snug easily folds and tucks into Tushbaby’s under-seat storage pocket when not in use.
Yes! The Snug’s side straps and shoulder straps can be adjusted up or down as needed for the most secure fit. It fits both petite and plus-size caregivers—if your Tushbaby hipseat needs some more length around the waist, you can purchase our Waistband Extender to add up to 23 extra inches to the waistband.
You bet. Tushbaby and The Snug can accommodate all shapes and sizes, petite and plus-size caregivers included. The Tushbaby Hipseat's waistband can be adjusted to fit snugly above the caregiver's natural waist, while The Snug’s side straps can be fine-tuned for a tight fit across the baby. The shoulder straps can also be moved for optimal comfort, and any extra webbing can be neatly rolled up and secured in elastic loops.
Just like your favorite thin t-shirt, The Snug is made with a breathable knit material for a comfortable wearing experience.
The Snug is made from a soft and stretchy blend of rayon, polyester, and spandex for easy carrying and easy cleaning.
Material content: 60% rayon, 35% polyester, 5% spandex
To clean your Snug, simply machine wash cold on delicate cycle and lay flat to dry.
Nope! The Snug is meant to be used exclusively (and safely) with your Tushbaby hipseat carrier. And never, ever use the Snug as an independent carrier without your Tushbaby.
Yes. The Snug Attachment has been independently tested to and meets standards for ASTM F2236. In simple terms, this means we've made sure it's both comfortable and safe for you and your baby.
The Snug must only be worn on the front of your body, with baby facing in or facing out.
Safety first, always. Keep these points in mind:
Attaching the Snug to your Tushbaby Hipseat Carrier converts it into a hands-free soft carrier that can be used for children up to 3 years old. The Snug is not suitable for newborns, but can be used in the face-to-face position once your infant reaches 12 lbs. Remember that baby must sit face-to-face until they can hold their head upright. Once they have full head and neck control, they can be carried facing out.
That’s the beauty of this carrier combo: you can choose how you want to carry, whenever, and wherever!
For those up-and-down, all-around moments like trips to Disney, zoos, or walks, many customers love using the Tushbaby on its own. When you need both hands, whether for grocery shopping, naps, housework, or holding onto another set of little hands, The Snug offers the perfect hands-free babywearing solution.
However you choose to carry, The Snug folds and fits into Tushbaby’s under-seat pocket, so transitioning from hands-free to hip-carrying is a breeze.
