DIY Baby Carrier II: The Baby Backpack!

What is more fun than babywearing?! Ok, maybe a lot of things....BUT if you make your own baby carrier, it can be a lot more fun. This tutorial is a little more advanced than my basic baby carrier but it is still super easy!

I present to you the Baby Backpack

All you need is a child sized back pack and a pair of  scissors.

1. Select a child-size backpack. I found this at Value Village for $3.00.

2. Cut holes in the bottom. The holes should be about a hand's width apart. And make sure they are wide enough to fit your baby's legs through. Wouldn't want to cut off circulation, would we?

3. Insert baby.

This can be worn on the front....Or even on the back:

Don't let the face fool you. Ryan loves it.

Isn't that cute? All those moms with fancy-pants wraps at the playground will be so jealous!


  1. Haha! I wish I'd thought of this when Indy was little enough! Brilliant!

  2. I hope you are joking! This is so unsafe on so many levels!! So bad for baby hip development!

  3. OMG! This is not even funny!! It's unsafe and unhealthy for the baby! I hope no one will ever take your advice, and i say this with all the love a mother can have for her baby!

  4. Providing a safety carrier for your babies is such a vital thing to consider. Always consider safety first.

  5. Thank you! I needed a temporary idea to take my child into a cave that doesn't allow strollers! This works for a short term fix! Yeah lady above who bashed you, I'm taking the advice because it is a one time only thing. I never plan to use it again so it won't harm my child.

  6. Great idea. All these hotty totty moms saying how unsafe it more unsafe than anything else your baby will experience in their early years lol Thanks for the post!

  7. I was looking for a diy for my daughter's baby doll. GREAT!

  8. Awesome! Doin’ it!
    (Unsafe? Come on. My baby’s not living in it day-to-day.)
    It’s for outings where strollers aren’t passable—which are very few and far between. Max amt of time my lil guy would spent in it at one go: 1 hour. If that. I’m not backpacking with him across the Alps or anything.
    And it will be one hour that saves his mommy’s back so she can carry or push him regularly all the other days!

  9. It’s nice collection! The bag shop is selling all kinds of backpack online

  10. This idea of baby backpack is so smart and I believe it will be the comfortable tool for the mother and children.DIY baby backpack making tutorial
