Today I visited a dear friend at her home for a play date with our kiddos. She is a very experienced babywearer and has helped me tremendously in this department. Every new carrier that I try is through her. She is so knowledgeable in this area that she started a babywearing group for our county. Her commitment to teaching others this art is commendable.

Well, today while at her house she brought out a Yamo carrier from Israel. Her mother actually brought it to her from a visit to Israel. I have to say, it was quite comfortable. It is a lot like the Pikkolo carrier that I received for Christmas. It takes a little tweaking to figure out a new carrier and my friend was right there offering the support and teaching that I needed. I tried doing a front carry as well as a back carry. Both were quite comfy. It was a great experience. The Yamo was very comfortable for me and it must have been for my little boy because he promptly fell asleep and took quite a great nap while sleeping on my back in the Yamo.


  1. Hi Jody. I chanced upon your blog while doing a search on the Yamo Baby Carrier. I'm trying to find contact details for the manufacturer in Israel to see if they will let me import them to sell thru my online store here in New Zealand. They are proving extremely difficult to track down!! lol Do you think your babywearing friend might have some idea of how to contact them? If you want to, and don't think I'm being too cheeky(!) you can reply to me at info at aquabub dot co dot nz. Now I'm off to read some more of your blog :0) Helen in New Zealand.
