One of the many reasons I love living in the DMV is our proximity to the National Mall. Admittedly, I don’t get down there enough so when one of my fellow Mocha Moms told me about an opportunity to participate in a photoshoot with Bitybean, I jumped at the chance.
Bitybean is a Vermont company dedicated to the mission of helping families get out and explore their world together. The Bitybean UltraCompact baby carrier is travel-friendly, small and compact, weighing only 8 oz and packing as small as a child’s water bottle! The carrier is safe, comfortable and conveniently packable, giving on-the-go parents the freedom to be ready for anything – from shopping to hiking, travel and family adventures.
I shared in this post that a baby carrier was my top overall pick for baby gear. Oh what fun we had one Monday morning as a small group of parents (yes, there was a babywearing Dad among us!) and babies descended upon the National Mall! At the direction of the super fun and creative Rowan – from Bitybean – we captured some gorgeous and mostly candid shots of the beauty of babywearing.
It was a great day! The Bitybean carrier is indeed lightweight and is a wonderful option for outdoor outings during the warmer months. Its compact size and carrying case make it convenient to easily toss into a diaper bag or tote. I also love that they offer a waist extender to accommodate plus-sized parents.

Once the shoot was over, I noticed that Baby Sunshine had been eyeing the historic Carousel nearby so we decided to take our first ride together. My plan was to merely stand up while holding on to the carousel rails but the attendant convinced me to actually ride on one of the horses…besides I was wearing Baby Sunshine in the Bitybean which gives “…parents the freedom to be ready for anything”, right? Right!
Oh my poor baby and her down for anything (read: crazy) momma! When was the last time you were down on the Mall? Are you a babywearer? Have you ever ridden on a carousel with a baby? Leave your sunshine below.
Disclaimer: As a participant of the photoshoot, I was given a complimentary carrier however writing this blog post was my choice and as always all opinions are my own.
