Doug Hartwell: The Mind Behind Bitybean's Baby Carrier

Doug Hartwell Bitybean FounderBitybean’s founder started with a vision for a child carrier for his daughter that he could easily pack away when not in use. When he couldn’t find what we was looking for available on the market, Doug decided to create it! He tapped into his engineering background and sewing experience and teamed up with a local technical soft goods design expert. They worked together to combine user-centric design philosophy, state-of-the-art fabrics and hardware, and optimized design to create a totally different child carrier. Bitybean was born.

Bitybean Innovates the Baby Carrier Market

Bitybean JPMA Innovation Award Winner 2012Bitybean's UltraCompact baby carrier weighs just 8 oz and is completely compressible into a pouch the size of a child’s water bottle, and is unisex, stylish, and innovative. The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association agrees and in October the internationally recognized organization honored Bitybean with a 2012 Innovation award.  It has numerous patent pending features that make it completely unique on the market.

Bitybean provides a conveniently packable way to securely carry an infant or a growing toddler, giving parents the flexibility to be ready for anything. Our carrier is smaller and lighter than any soft sided carrier on the market and can be tucked away in any pocket, bag, or purse. It can be used for front or back carry for infants and toddlers 3 months and up and weighing 8 to 40 lbs. Bitybean provides comfortable closeness, without all the bulk.

Our products are designed to give parents the freedom to be ready for anything!
