Recently purchased the Ubuntu Baba stage one in the thyme colour. Absolutely adore this brand and the quality of the fabric. My LO is arriving in a months time and I.can't wait to use it. Delivery was super quick. Within the next working day it, it was delivered. The fabric is soft and I love the natural hemp that is used. My husband and I tested the ease to put it on and it was extremely easy to follow the instructions. Can't wait to put the Ubuntu Baba into good use!

Amazing carrier from birth to toddlerhood. I have used mine for both my babies and it has held up very well. I recommend this product to any new mom

Best baby carrier ever! Cannot go without my UBUNTU. Calms my little one every time.

My number one baby product! My son loves his Ubuntu baby carrier. We use it multiple times a day and is the quickest and easiest way to get my little guy to fall asleep. I have been using this carrier from when he was just 5 days old. It is a life saver as it allows me to get things done while he is sleeping which is especially important with a toddler to take care of too. It is easy to put on and comfortable for mom and baby. I would highly recommend the Ubuntu Stage 1 to all moms on the market for a baby carrier.

The best baby carrier out there! This has been a lifesaver for days when my little one has not wanted to be put down and I have desperately needed to get stuff done. It is also so ideal for going out and wandering around markets etc, rather than using a bulky pram, baby stays close and snug!

I fell in love with babywearing with my third child Joel, and I always had Ubuntu Baba Carrier on my dream list, I got the Stage 1 Ubuntu Baba Carrier when I was pregnant with my fourth baby, Taylor. I loved it from the very first time I wore my baby in it! My Ubuntu Baba is like a second skin or part of my outfit, I even coordinate the rest of my outfit around it. I now have a stage 2.

I loved my Stage 1 carrier, the best thing when you are both emotionally drained and need some closeness. Great for walks, shopping etc. They also have fantastic customer service. There is even a facebook group selling 2nd hand ubuntos

My first born son lived in my Stage 1 Ubuntu. Really comfortable breathable carrier. I really appreciated the packaging & personal touch with delivery

...

Sharine

Without a doubt a life saver. I would highly recommend Ubuntu carriers to any mom. The zip pocket in the front is super useful for goodies like treats, cellphones, lipice and bank cards while out and about. Gentle on your back (I had back surgery) and keeps your hand free while your little one is as snug as a bug

I love my Ubuntu baba carrier. I had another one and my back got so sore when I used it, the Ubuntu support my back much better as well as baby. It's also so easy to breastfeed using the Ubuntu - breastfeeding in public just got easier.

I'm yet to meet a person who doesn't love their ubuntu. We moved from the wrap to an ubuntu and it was amazing, easy to put on by yourself and it comes in a super handy travel bag. my stage one literally came everywhere with me and was amazing. We have the stage 2 now and love it just as much

I am a first time mom and finding a carrier that was durable and eco-friendly was a challenge. I longed for a light, breathable carrier which was locally manufactured. I stumbled across the UbuntuBaba brand as a result of an article regarding a competitor. I did my own research and immediately fell inlove with this carrier. The carrier is made from organic hemp and are specifically designed to compliment the physical and emotional stage of your baby’s development. I placed an order online and within two days I received my carrier. Quality service for an outstanding product.

I come from Europe where we have plenty carriers for babies. Here in SA it took me a while to find the perfect one and thank God I did. Ubuntu makes my life so much easier and more comfortable. Thank you!

Tamara

This is the best carrier ever. I loved my Ubuntu Stage 1. I did not leave me house without it. It was also a part of my daily dress code in the house. My little one loved to be close to me and he breastfed all the time. I loved this about my carrier. I could breastfeed in it anywhere and anytime. The other great thing is, it comes in a stage 2 when your little one outgrows the stage 1 😁! My 19 month old still breastfeeds all the time so our stage 2 is perfect for that.

...

Janine

Love my stage 1! Easy on and off, baby sits comfortably. The pocket in front for all your extra stuff is so useful. The hood works great for in the sun or when bubs is sleeping. Would definitely recommend it!

...

Kristen

Probably one of our best buys with our baby. And the customer service was out of this world!

...

Shireen

LOVE LOVE LOVE this carrier. Only used it with my second born but oh my word made navigating the outside world (and inside my home) SO much easier with a newborn and toddler. Gentle on my back and c section scar. Even a quick shopping trip WHILE breastfeeding. I have no regrets and will be purchasing a stage 2 soon

...

Robyn

I love this carrier so much! It's comfortable at all times and allows me to work while baby naps on my chest. Totally worth every cent.

...

Liscka

I ordered my ubuntu baba carrier yesterday morning and received it today ! super happy with the quick service ! I was impatient to use it and I can safely say I absolutely love it ! wish I had known about this carrier with my first born. I highly recommend this carrier to any and all mums. great value for money .

...

Shireen

My boy loved this carrier when he was smaller! Me too ❤️

...

Nakita

Fantastic carrier, ensures baby close and comfy, prevents sore backs, magic sleepy dust galore with this one. I used the “old” model and it was incredible so can only imagine how amazing the new one will be.

...

Kelly

This is definitely the best baby item that I own and would recommend it to all moms- especially those having a second child! It’s the only way I manage to have baby safely on my chest and both hands free to do things around the house!

...

Nicole

Quick and easy to attach and detach with it's durable fabric and sturdy clips. breastfeeding with the UB is also a breeze and no one will even know with it's discreet flaps that clips onto the straps to cover the baby. totally worth investing

...

Cathryn

I have been borrowing a friend of mines UB carrier to give it a go and I am so in love with this product and definitely want to get my own! It gives great support without the backache, it comfortable, quick to put on and the easiest to take a sleeping baby out of and keep baby sleeping once you have taken the carrier off. Brilliant product!

...

Candice

I was blessed to be gifted an Ubuntu Baba stage 1 Carrier. I had a summer baby and was concerned about me and her getting hot. It never happened, the hemp fabric stayed cool. The carrier fits all sizes. I’m a plus size mama and it fitted very comfortably. Using this quality carrier made all the difference. I was able to go shopping, do daily chores etc with the help of it.

...

Kerishnie

Loooooove!!! If you are looking for an investment please get one! Worth every cent! UbuntuBaba is quality.

...

Claudine

The Ubuntu Baba is the BEST investment ever, I will give up everything BUT my Ubuntu Sling☺️. My daughter has silent reflux and colic and is only content when in her Ubuntu, and I have hands again to do things for myself. Yes it is more expensive than most slings but worth every cent! 🙏🏼 🌸

...

SIBONGILE

OMG!I LOVE I LOVE I LOVE.Very comfortable for both mom & baby.Best buy ever!

...

Leza

What can I say... Few products that actually live up to the promise they make. The ubuntu saved my sanita, and ended world war 3 in my home. I simply can go without it. So comfortable on your body, easy to put on yourself, and baby loves it!

...

Melissa

I love this carrier. Love it. I really like that the width of the base is easy to adjust and the straps that cross over the back make it easy to use. My Velcro baby was always happy in his stage 1. Wish I’d had it when my first was born too.

...

Amy

Love my UB carrier! It’s easy to fasten one handed and my little one enjoys being carried around in it. It allows me to have my hands free so I can do basic things around the house or go shopping. I tried a wrap carrier first but find this much easier and more comfortable.

...

Nicole

One of my best buy’s as a new mom. It is easy to use and my twins love it. When one is unhappy and unable to sleep I put him in here and go for a walk. Usually within 5 minutes he is fast asleep. It has a nice light weight material and is very user friendly.

...

Falon

I absolutely love my Ubuntu carrier. It is light and easy to use. My little one adores being in it and falls asleep so easily. The fabric is so soft and comfortable. Plus the flap at the top is so useful in sunny or windy conditions, else it can be rolled down and used for next support.

...

Tamaryn

I absolutely loved baby wearing with my stage 1 Ubuntubaba. The fabric is breathable so having a new born in the February Durban heat was comfortable and both baby and I didnt get hot. It's super comfortable and can wear after a C-section without discomfort. One of my most used baby accessories, my hubby even played some of with baby soundly sleeping. When mommies to be ask me what my essentials are, this is definitely at the top of my list.

...

Chantelle

Comfortable and easy to use. Also not bulky and baby’s posture is correct. It’s an absolute dream when you are having one of “those days” where baby just wants to be held. Plus it comes with magic sleepydust which is always a bonus

...

Amy

We absolutely adore our Ubuntu Baba. It's so soft, comfy and easy to use.

...

Shannon

I absolutely loved my Ubuntu Carrier. We went hiking, walking and it was a great relief knowing that baby was safe and snug, while not putting any strain on my back.

...

le-anne

A great product, especially when you want to be mobile with baby, baby is content because they are close to their which provides comfort, while you can still go about doing what you need to do.

...

Danni

LOVE our UB. With a colic and reflux baby... As well as a busy toddler.. This carrier is a lifesaver. It is comfortable enough to wear for longer than your average carrier or wrap. Best money spent on baby goods.

...

Komal

Amazing product! So practical for everyday use and putting baby to sleep but also awesome for international travel, because it allows you to be hands free, baby feels secure and safe and the zipper in the front really helped for bits and bobs.

...

Michelle

Amazing product! Loved that it was easy to use and there was no strain on my back

...

Lauren

I received the Ubuntu Baba as a baby shower gift, and I was a little skeptical with all the straps etc. Best gift received! It literally saved me when James was fussy and wouldn't sleep. The sleepy dust is real!! I also really enjoyed being able to breastfeed in it whilst having my hands free! Win! It became my shopping companion as I could then have baby close by and still push a trolley. I loved this product, and my only regret was not buying the stage 2.

...

Suné

Must have!!! Quality is great and it is true, when in the Ubuntu...baby sleeps. Gives you time to do things, handsfree and attend to my two year old aswell. Did not use it with my first baby, but can honestly say it makes life much easier.

...

Nishaat

A lifesaver with both my babies. I had preemies and it was an amazing way to keep my babies close but stay hands free. I had two kids under two years and this allowed me to see to both my ch

Lauren

The sleepy dust is real! My husband and I both love using this product and our little is most content whether we are doing the dishes or out and about.
