Fox Den Lane, For the Homegrown Child

Podaegi

Podaegi
The EllaRoo Podaegi is adapted from an ancient Korean design that proves itself to be just as versatile and practical today as ever. A podaegi (sometimes translated as podegi or podeagi) is a traditional baby carrier consisting of a piece of fabric, the "blanket" that wraps around the wearer and baby and is secured with two long sashes holding the baby in place on mama's back or against Daddy's heart.

There are four hands-free ways to carry your child in an EllaRoo Podaegi, from infancy through toddlerhood, including one method that does not use the shoulders to carry Baby's weight. This makes the podaegi particularly well-suited to a variety of body types and physical conditions. All of these characteristics come together in a versatile and practical baby carrier for anyone who needs to get things done.

We particularly like the EllaRoo Podaegi for quick backpack-style carries for older babies and toddlers and cozy front carries for little babies. Because there is just one set of straps on the podaegi, as compared with shoulder straps and waist straps on the Mei Tai, tying the EllaRoo Podaegi can be done quickly and efficiently, with a little practice. The single set of straps also makes adjusting the length of the blanket of the carrier simple and easy, as Baby grows and for various carrying positions.

The EllaRoo Podaegi is proudly made by expert seamstresses in the US with 90% sustainably-harvested organic cotton and organic cotton batting. The podaegi comes in two sizes:

  • Narrow Blanket Version (lightweight, yet still secure)
    • Straps - 3.75" X 183"
    • Blanket - 21" X 18"
    • Designed for comfortable use from head control to 35 lbs.
  • Traditional Wide Blanket Version (cozy and wraps you and baby up snugly)
    • Straps - 3.75" X 183"
    • Blanket - 21" X 61"
    • Designed for comfortable use from birth to 35 lbs.
