– From Pregnancy and Newborn Magazine:
…Comfort is, of course, key with baby being the primary concern. The carrier places baby in an ergonomically correct seated position with plenty of padding. It does not feel like she is dangling from lack of support—a concern with other carrying methods I’ve tried. I know my daughter is comfortable because she falls asleep after only minutes in the carrier. Now, the biggest success story with this carrier is related to my husband. He typically dislikes babywearing because he is always hot! However, he is now the one carrying our daughter most when we’re together. The material has an air-mesh lining which is super breathable and made from 100 percent recycled brushed polyester twill. It’s one of the most earth-friendly baby carriers around, and it’s perfect for temperature control and wiping clean, though it is also machine washable! Additionally, the straps are very comfortable.

– From Mama Naturale:
While in the past we’ve used our Ergo Sport to go hiking, that’s no longer a sound option. We have been spoiled by Onya. It’s the Cadillac of carriers. It’s waterproof, has a bazillion pockets (for snacks, maps, a phone… Whatever). The extra-long sleep hood is amazing, too. Oh, and it’s breathable–made of 100% nylon with sweat-wicking mesh for mama’s back. Crucial when going on a hot hike or under a warm winter babywearing coat. (read more…)
– From A Little Bit of All of It:
I have tried many carriers, and what I love about the Onya Cruiser is the extra tall body. I can wear both of my children (4 years old and 15 months) comfortably on my front or back in this carrier which is saying something. The Cruiser I tried has a snap so I can fold down the top of the carrier to accommodate my little guy and then unsnap and flip up for my big girl. I can also say that, though I mostly wear my son on my front, this is my favorite soft structured carrier to wear on my back. I find it the most comfortable of the many I have tried. (read more…)
– From Life with my Littles:
– From I thought I knew Mama:
It is comfortable!
And I mean VERY comfortable. I am not someone who has a ton of upper body strength, but I can easily carry my three year old son in the Onya Baby Cruiser for long periods of time – whether we’re passing time on the ferry during travel, walking for blocks in the city, or going for a hike. (read more…)
– From EcoParent Magazine:
The ‘Cruiser’ demonstrated surprisingly good balance, and really great positioning for my little man. It’s minimal structure and smart design allows the child’s own weight to dictate posture, providing maximum comfort for your precious cargo. (read more…)
– From Baby Dash:
We used our Onya carrier every chance we could. I used it grocery shopping, Our frequent trips to Disneyland, walks and much more. The Onya carrier is very comfortable even carrying a 35 lb child all day. The padding around the lower back, shoulders and child’s legs makes the carrier more comfortable and less strenuous on your body. The adjustable chest clip is wonderful. This helps alleviate pressure off your shoulders and gives the carrier a more secure hold. I absolutely love using my Onya carrier! It’s made very well for long time use! Since my son does not use stroller this is a great temporary replacement for when he gets tired of walking. (read more…)
– From Eco Incognito:
Hold onto your babies, this is the BEST giveaway I’ve ever hosted! I’m excited to introduce you to the Onya Baby Cruiser. This soft-structured baby carrier is similar to an Ergo, but it packs a very handy secret. Not only can you wear your baby on your front or back, but it also has an integrated seat so that you can use it for safety on a chair. When it comes to a portable seating option for 6 month olds and up, you won’t find anything more convenient. (read more…)
– From My Sippy Runneth Over:
I have seven children and have worn them all, and I have yet to have such a versatile carrier as the Onya. I saw it online and Knew I had to have one. Far to often we are out & about, forgetting one of the little ones booster seat or table side seat to eat. I thought that this was an absolutely brilliant move to create such a wonderful soft structured baby carrier! (read more…)
– From One Smiley Monkey:
We had a chance to try out the Onya Baby Cruiser carrier earlier in the summer with our 24 month old and I must say that I am very impressed with the smart design and the added baby seat feature. This is the very first time that I see a carrier that offers both products in one (travel baby seat + back and front carrier). (read more…)
– From A Little Bit of All of It:
I recently had the pleasure of receiving a very unique baby carrier, the Onya Baby Outback. It is a soft structured carrier, and while there are many great soft structured baby carriers in the market you could buy, this one has a special feature that I really, really like. Not only can you carry your little one around hands free, it also is a chair harness for your baby! How neat is that?? (read more…)
– From Mama on a Green Mission:
…My husband and I have both worn this carrier numerous times! We both love the fit and we can comfortably wear the little ones on front or back! the additional features that we use regularly make this carrier the only item you will need on walks to the park, ice cream shop, the mall or anywhere else! (read more…)
– From Simply Real Moms:
Who says you can’t have it all? Need a baby carrier that doubles as a seat–you’ve got it with Onya Baby Carriers! I love the Onya Baby Carrier and the fact that it offers the seat option. It is perfect for the on-the-go family who wears their baby for a walk to dinner, or possibly a walk in the park and then stopping at a coffee shop, because you can take your little one out of the carrier and use it in a chair. No need to carry anything extra and no need to worry about how clean (or not clean) a high chair might be! (read more…)
– From Mommy Loves Coffee:
The Onya Baby Outback is an ergonomic baby carrier perfect for warm weather, families that enjoy the outdoors and children who are “hot boxes”… My toddler weighs almost 28 pounds and my (small-ish) 4-year-old weighs about 32 pounds. I’ve been using this carrier with both of them for many months now and I love the tall body panel combined with the customizable shoulder straps. Normally it takes me a while to get used to carriers with taller body panels – because I have a short torso – but the Onya Baby carrier allows me to cross the shoulder straps across my back while carrying my kids in the front carry. I love this feature! I also love that I can wear the Onya Baby carrier for long periods of time. (read more…)
– From Life With Levi:
As a soft-structured carrier, I totally love it. The shoulder pads have a nice thickness and the waist belt is very wide in front, which gives plenty of support. The back strap is easily pushed down so it spreads the weight across the center of your shoulders, but slides up so you can buckle and unbuckle it yourself… The Onya is my new “car carrier” – I keep it in the backseat of my car so it’s handy when I’m out running errands. It’s especially nice to have the seat available just by unzipping a hidden pouch, so if Levi wants to have a snack while we’re out at the park or (heaven forbid) the mall, I can strap him in so he doesn’t wander off while I’m unpacking his diaper bag. (read more…)
– From Happy Mothering:
One of the things I love about Onya Baby’s Outback style is how the water-resistant nylon exterior and air-mesh lining breathe so I’m not left feeling all sweaty and gross if we’re out in the heat. We like to be outside and active during the Spring and Summer months, so that’s huge!
I also really like how gender neutral the style and colors are. Brian loves using this carrier as much as I do. But I usually win and get to use the Onya Baby and leave him with our older Kelty Carrier when we need to wear both girls. (read more…)
– From Rambles of a SAHM:
What separates The Outback Carrier from other carriers its fabric is a durable, water-resistant, rip-stop nylon exterior and air-mesh lining. This feature is my favorite and is what makes The Outback my choice of carrier for summer travels. (read more…)
– From Does Mommy Love it?:
Onya Baby makes a fantastic baby carrier that conveniently doubles as a safety seat that attaches to most any chair or bench. Bonus! I cannot tell you how many times I’ve traveled without a stroller due to baby carrying and left with a baby in my lap at various places. Now I can comfortably stroll the city knowing the destination awaits a chair I can strap my young, in safety, to and give me much needed rest. (read more…)
– From Simple City Life:
The first thing that grabbed my attention was the extra padding around the leg. There is wide padded area surrounding the leg openings that is so soft and squishy on your babies legs. After a long walk or shopping trip in other carriers Rai will develop a few deep red marks. Now, mind you he does not seem bothered by them. With the Onya Baby, the red marks are non existent! The shoulder straps have the same cozy padding, keeping mom comfortable as well. The chest clip moves easily to adjust from front to back carry quickly. (read more…)
– From Cool Mom Picks:
What do you get when you combine a comfortable, easy-to-use baby carrier and a portable child seat? The distinct impression that someone should have invented this a long time ago. It’s called the Onya Baby Carrier, and it has the ability to make your life easier and your diaper bag lighter. (read more…)
– From the Giggle Guide:
A dependable baby carrier is an essential piece of gear that helps parents keep their baby close and secure while they go about their daily activities. Baby carriers also give parents great flexibility, because they are able to take their baby on hikes, walks and other activities, where a stroller would be cumbersome or hard to maneuver. Baby carriers are lightweight and easy to just grab and go. There is one problem though with having just a carrier — there is nowhere for a baby to sit securely if one takes it off. One mother’s desire to simplify her life by combining two useful products in a new and creative way led to the birth of Onya Baby. (read more…)
– From Being MVP:
I love babywearing but it has come to the point where I get tired of carrying Kenzie for long periods of time because of my current condition. We received the Onya Baby Outback Carrier for review and it rocks! (read more…)
– From Hormonal-Imbalances:
I love that they have a front zippered pocket; perfect for easy storage of cash at a Farmer’s Market, a cell phone, a diaper and wipes, and/or a burp cloth. 2 toys rings help you to never have to pick up the toy that kept being chucked across the room. I also love the hood – it’s light and has a pouch that it tucks away in when not in use. And? A key ring.
So basically, in an Onya Baby you can wear your kid and not worry about a high chair, a purse, a diaper bag, toys, where you put your keys, or a hat. Which is a total win for anyone with Mommy Brain. ::raises hand:: (read more…)
–From Dirty Diaper Laundry:
Hands down the best thing about this carrier for me has been that the back carry is a bit higher than similar SSC’s. Everett prefers being worn on the back in the Onya for this reason. It is pretty obvious that he likes it. When the baby is younger they are often stuck facing your back. In the Onya he gets a higher view!
My next favorite feature would be that the back straps unbuckle and allow for criss crossing when performing a front carry. (read more…)
–From Pregnancy and Newborn Magazine:
Onya Baby’s The Cruiser and The Outback are wise choices for any parent looking for lightweight, easy-to-use carriers. The only difference I noticed between the two is the fabric. The fabric on the Cruiser is much more lightweight and made for everyday use around town. The fabric on the Outback is a bit more heavy duty. It’s breathable and is great for hikes or families with active lifestyles. Since fabric is the only notable distinction, the rest of my review will be applicable to both models. (read more…)
-From Natural Urban Mama:
It is not too often that a BRAND NEW never been made before soft-structured baby carrier comes on the market. No ‘fourth generation’, no ‘II’, no ‘now with designer fabrics’. I mean brand spanking new!
And not only NEW, but GOOD. Like really really good! (read more…)
– From Babywearing International of Peoria:
(part 1): My first impression on taking this out of the box was how very well matched everything ont his carrier is. The buckles are brown, the straps are brown, even the webbing is brown, rather than the normal black. This carrier coordinates everything beautifully!
The next thing I noticed was how well written the instruction book was. It’s really a book, not a booklet or an instruction sheet. It details, with pictures, several ways to get baby onto your back, several ways to wear the straps for front carries, even how to nurse in it. This is a fantastically detailed set of instructions! Very, very helpful for a carrier newbie. (read more…)
(part 2: on a chair): Wow wow wow! This is seriously the most innovative feature I’ve seen on a carrier in a while! So, you can use the Onya as a carrier, then, in a pinch, you can use it as, basically, a high chair. Or, rather, you use it to convert a regular chair into a high chair. After the comment about it yesterday, I watched the video on how to use the Onya on a chair. I’ll be honest. I thought this would be a hassle, a secondary feature that wasn’t actually worth using. I was pleasantly surprised to be wrong! (read more…)
-From Modern Day Moms:
I can’t begin to tell you how super excited I am to introduce you to the Onya Baby Carrier! I was introduced to their ingenious carrier while attending the San Francisco Birth and Baby Fair earlier in the month. Before I begin talking about why the Onya Baby Carrier is hands down the coolest carrier I have ever seen, let me tell you about the company because I really think the people behind this are completely awesome.

-From Chiquita Baby:
…The newest carrier on the block is the Onya baby. It is durable, well made, and user friendly. Plus it was designed by a mother who is passionate about babywearing. (read more…)
-From Me as a Mommy:
…So what’s awesome about the Onya? Well did you miss the high chair part?? But seriously, there are other pretty incredible things here too. It’s super super adjustable and would fit any size person. It also is very high backed, which is nice when you have a sleeping baby, or are nursing. There’s also a sleeping hood that easily zips in/out of a pocket on the front (another pocket holds the high chair seat). The Onya straps can unhook, giving you the option to cross them in the back, or use the chest/back clip in the same style of many other carriers. And something super cute and creative? The name… (read more…)

I’ve got an exciting new baby carrier I’ve been eager to mention…I was really intrigued by the creative design behind the new Onya Baby carrier. It’s a well-made, soft structured carrier that also transforms into a seat for your little one. (read more…)
I’ve waited for this carrier to launch since last year’s ABC show, and am thrilled to announce it has arrived. Suitable from 15 pounds (around 3 months) through 45 pounds, this soft-structured carrier is very comfortable and incredibly well-made (not to mention cute!). There is fantastic attention to detail…(read more)
-From Everything Mom and Baby:
There’s a new baby carrier on the market and it is fabulous! It’s called Onya Baby.
What baby carrier can also be used a safe alternative to high chairs(when none around!) when dining out or out and about and you need to sit. Onya Baby can be worn front, back and conveniently attach to a chair. There’s two versions: The Cruiser (cotton) and The Outback (water-resistant). (read more…)
-From The Baby Gear Guy:
…I’ve waited since October to be able to share this with everyone. OCTOBER!!!!! I am so good at keeping my mouth shut. Sometimes. I’ve waited to get this in my hands, to play with it, to wear it, and I’ve prayed that it was as good as its potential in Vegas.
It brings me great joy to tell you that it does. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you:
The Onya Baby Carrier. (read more…)
