Most Frequently Asked Questions
1. Is there an age or weight limit for TushBaby?
A: TushBaby can be used for kids up to 3 years old, or 44lbs. From 0-6 months, TushBaby can be used as breastfeeding support. Once those little nuggets can hold their own heads up, it’s the perfect place for them to hang out while you hold on.
2. How long is the waistband?
A: The waistband is 47.24 inches long. But you lose a few inches where the two waistbands overlap to secure the Velcro. We recommend TushBaby for those with a 44-inch waist or smaller.
3. Is there an option for a longer waistband?
A: Yes our extension belt is sold separately for $14.99 and it allows you to add up to 24 inches in length to the waistband. Please note the Waistband Extender only ships free when purchased with one or more TushBabies.
4. What's the difference between TushBaby and the cheaper hip seats on Amazon?
A: Every TushBaby is made with craftsmanship, high-quality materials, and love. We've prioritized your baby's hip health, and have gone through rigorous safety testing, and doctor-approval processes. We're not going to sit here and bash other brands that have jumped on the hip seat bandwagon.
5. Is TushBaby recommended by doctors?
A: Why yes it is. We have endorsements from a pediatrician for babies, and a chiropractor for adults.
“TushBaby's hipseat puts the child's hips in the proper "M" shaped position with thighs supported, also known as the "Spread Squat Position”. Sitting with this alignment decreases the risk of hip dysplasia. As a result, TushBaby is an anatomically safe product for babies' bodies.”- Dr. Andrew L. Nash, M.D. (Pediatrician)
“I can't tell you how many adult back injuries I've seen that started with ‘So, I was carrying my baby and…’ TushBaby is the perfect product for reducing the muscular strain on the spine while holding young children. Its ergonomic design eliminates the detrimental position parents resort to while carrying their kids — where they push their hips out and curve their spines. If you want to stay out of my office, I highly recommend TushBaby.”- Dr. Nicholas Cruze, D.C. (Chiropractor)
"TushBaby has been saving my back and wrist while I multi-task with my baby on my hip. I highly recommend it to all my patients to help balance their body while carrying their little ones."-Dr. Kseniya Gershberg, DC (Chiropractor)
I’ve been a general pediatrican for over 20 years and often have parents, colleagues, or friends show me new products for babies and children. I often like the products. However, when I saw TushBaby on Shark Tank, I reached out to the company as I had to see for myself if it was really as good as advertised. Surprisingly, it was BETTER. It’s rare to see a product that makes day to day life so much easier for parents, yet is still comfortable for the baby and most importantly safe. Parents of babies have a lot on their plate, and literally a lot to carry. TushBaby is a game changer. I truly believe TushBaby will change how new parents carry their babies and will be the new baby carrier standard.-Jason Bromberg M.D. (Pediatrician)
6. Is there Velcro on the waistband belt?
A: Yes, because it’s safe, secure, and we love the sound of it.
7. Are the materials safe for babies?
A: 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.
8. What is a hip seat?
A: A hip seat is kinda like fanny pack (also known as a bum bag), but way better. Here's why. 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. There's a secure shelf-like seat where your baby sits, while you hold them with an arm. This seat is designed to put your baby's hips in the recommended M-shaped position while taking the strain off of your back, arms, and hips. It's also designed to store items like diapers, wipes, and other essentials inside.
