When we started our babywearing journey with our first, we were overwhelmed with the amount of baby carriers available! It can be hard to decide which baby carrier is for you but I hope to help with our “ABOUT” series that go through the different brands and advantages of each type. Don’t forget to take advantage of the closed captions of our video!
The Kokadi Flip is a full buckle baby carrier that is not only easy to use, it is stylish and allows for great positioning for your baby and comfort for yourself. The Flip is a very popular babywearing option due to it’s numerous special features. To cover your whole babywearing journey, it is available in Baby, Toddler and Preschool Sizes.

Carry Options You can wear your baby in a front or back carry (inward facing) with the Kokadi Flip. Both are super easy to do and allow for your baby’s needs to see as they grow.
Made from Kokad’s Woven Wrap Material
The woven wrap material is made from Turkish organic cotton which can also be blended with other fabrics such as bamboo. Super soft straight out of the box, it is amazing to touch and molds to your baby’s body.
So Many Designs
Kokadi excel at the design component of their woven wraps so there is something for every person, baby and family. I can’t tell you how many favourites I currently have as they keep releasing even more! As many of the designs are limited edition, I would get in quick before it sells out.
In the Baby Size Flip, the shoulder straps clip into the waist belt so there is no pressure on baby’s back. Due to this, it is more comfortable for your baby and allows for an optimal position. This also means the strap sits lower so there is less/no pressure against your boob (helpful if you are prone to blocked ducts or mastitis). And it also allows for good airflow!
The Toddler and Preschool Size Flips have two options for your shoulder straps – either clip into the waist belt as above or they can clip into the back panel which allows for better weight distribution. This is especially useful with your bigger child.
Velcro Seat Adjustment
This allows you to fit YOUR baby now and as they grow. With a quick and simple adjustment, you can cinch (make smaller) the bottom woven wrap material so it makes the perfect width seat for your baby without over or under extending their hips.
There is also an option to make the upper part of the neck panel smaller in order to provide additional neck/shoulder support for your baby.
Perfect Fit Adjusters
These are the small straps that sit on your shoulder straps just above the back panel. By adjusting them to your body, they allow for comfort and keeping your baby close.
Baby’s Fit and Position
Due to all the features mentioned above, the Flip allows for optimal positioning for your baby and fit’s them perfectly. Your baby is going to be happier (and often sleepier) if the baby carrier can be adjusted to THEM and their comfort is just as important as yours.
The hood is also made from their beautiful woven wrap material and can be used as additional head and neck support as well as shade or privacy if you are feeding. It also has generous straps so you can easily reach it (very useful in back carry).
You can also get additional waist or shoulder strap extenders so it fits all body types and sizes. Additional shoulder straps can also help if you don’t have much flexibility in reaching for them to tighten.
There are two different waist buckle types in the Kokadi Flip. The Z is a 3 point buckle that you can tighten left and right whereas the non-Z clips into the side of the waist belt and has a safety strap.
