You’d think that my 15 years spent as a Bellydancer would have prepared me for having kids.
But whilst my core is still strong, I do however struggle carrying the kids with the strain it puts on my back and posture. And no professional dancer wants a bad posture!
When it first arrived, I tried it on and it immediately reminded me of an elaborate bum bag (although my Nan banned me using that word) as it straps around your waist with a zip-up pocket/pouch and then the ledge/hip seat on your side.
It’s easy to Velcro around your waist and it fits comfortably with the cushioned support.
I road tested it on a day out in Sheffield with my two daughters and my mum. As ever we hadn’t been able to fit the buggy in the car so I decided to grab the HipSeat which comes in a stylish canvas drawstring bag.
I’m not one for reading instructions, so luckily it was really straight forward to use.
And low and behold it worked! I carried two-year-old Ari around for most of the day and it was brilliant as she could hop on and hop off. We used to use a sling for carrying her but now she’s older and stronger she won’t sit still.
I could barely feel any strain on my back when carrying because the HipSeat felt nice and sturdy.
I posted about it on social media and it got lots of attention including an old friend of mine who is a massive HipSeat fan.
Tina English, a nan, said: “Really comfortable to wear and keeps your spine straight and the baby secure. “As you can see baby Leon at only 8 months is a big baby weighing in about 2 stone and I can carry him around for ages with ease. ❤️”

Specifically designed to address one of the root causes of adult back pain, the hipseat provides a firm shelf for the child to sit on and supports their increasingly heavy weight from underneath.
