what makes O&A better
Olives and Applesauce takes a minimalist approach to designing baby carriers, taking guess work and struggles out of babywearing! With every O&A carrier you get peace of mind knowing your carrier is:
🍎safety-tested and fully compliant
🍎designed by a babywearing educator and mother (we get what you need and how to do that safely and comfortably)
🍎quick & personalized fit support just an email away
🍎an ergonomic and comfortable fit (our tall waistband and crossable straps are perfect for optimal back support)
🍎size inclusivity with custom extenders whenever needed
🍎handmade with love in the US (all of our sewists are parents who take the responsibility of creating your carrier very seriously. your child’s safety is our #1 goal!)
🍎a simple to use carrier with no extra buttons, buckles, pieces or need to “size up” as baby grows
Choose between the unique built-in harness of the Hydrogen carrier, or the patent-pending adjustable panel of the Olympia carrier. Either way, you get an ergonomic carrier that is quick, simple, and comfortable from newborn to preschool.
what others are saying about O&A
"The Olives & Applesauce Hydrogen carrier has become my “go-to” carrier in my educator bag. As a babywearing consultant, I help new families navigate the baby carrier market to select the carrier perfect for their lifestyle. I realized not to long after using the carrier myself it was a perfect solution for so many families. O&A Hydrogen Carrier is quick, comfortable, and so size inclusive! My clients really love that they can carry their older child then switch to carrying their newborn without any extra gear."

“I’ve always loved Olives and Applesauce because their Hydrogen carrier comes with the infant insert and I love supporting small businesses. But they truly kicked it out of the water with this Olympia! The adjustment of the seat was amazing and my 10 month old fit perfectly. It was so soft and comfortable walking in the Florida heat! Definitely should try!” ~Allana
“I love this carrier. I recently had a repeat c section and it didn’t hurt to carry the baby, it’s easy to put on not confusing at all and I can put it on myself. I was also able to nurse and put the little sun blocker up and no one knew what I was doing! It was nice having a little privacy in the grocery store.
I’m a plus size mom (size 16, and DDD chest) and there is plenty of room with the straps to go bigger if needed! Perfect for everyone!” ~Danielle
I have always struggled with figuring out how to use baby carriers because of all the straps and which way to put it on. This carrier is so easy and very self explanatory. I love that this carrier has the little seat in it for the baby and I can carry her easily from newborn all the way to toddler. This is a great carrier and I highly recommend it!
We have tried other carriers before and never worked but this has worked so well for us. The video tutorials are super easy to follow and I feel my baby is safe in it!
The carrier is by far the easiest and most comfortable carrier that I have ever used. Would highly recommend this product.
I’ve only used my carrier a few times so far since receiving it but I love it! Once I got it adjusted for me the first time, it’s so easy and quick to get on! And my baby girl seemed to love it! Went to sleep in it and slept the whole time I was walking around the store! Plus I felt so much safer with her being so close to me. So glad I bought this carrier! It’s comfy and lightweight. Definitely recommend Olives & Applesauce Olympia carriers!
This is my most favorite carrier ever! Light weight, and super soft!
Best carrier ever
I have tried a lot of different types of carriers since having my first son but I finally found one that I love with my second son. The Hydrogen is comfy for both mom and baby. We have used it multiples times to go out and about and my 7 week old loves it. Thank you for such a high quality product!
Thank you! I ordered a carrier, one that was in stock, on a Wednesday morning. I received it Friday morning! And the pattern is so cute! I can’t wait to give it to the mother to be.
Both my husband and I love the Olympia Sunflower Carrier we bought!!! Our daughter seems to be very comfortable and prefers the Olympia to the Hydrogen! I love the straps in the front as it’s more convenient. I also love the fact that the size range is larger for the Olympia and it seems easier to store. I’m so excited to get to use it more and know that it will grow with her. I 100% recommend Olives & Applesauce. Both the Hydrogen carrier and the Olympia carrier are so comfortable and easy to use plus their designs are super cute! I definitely feel like I’m getting my money’s worth. Overall the carrier is fairly affordable for everything you get, the durability and comfort. I have fibromyalgia and chronic pain. Both carriers are comfortable for me to wear for an extended period of time because it distributes weight easily and is very breathable! If you are looking for a lightweight, breathable, durable, long lasting, comfortable and adorable carrier then definitely purchase an O&A carrier! You won’t regret it!
We absolutely love this carrier. We carry either our 16lb baby or 30lb toddler and it's never strenuous!
I absolutely love my carrier! The pattern is so cute! My 7 week old loves it and I love that when I need I can get things done around the house while she still gets what she wants (being held). Very great customer service as well. All around would order from this company again!
Love my carrier. So convient with having a toddler and infant . So glad I found a small business to support and get a great quality carrier.

Great service and VERY quick shipping!
I’ve tried a ton of carriers and just haven’t been a fan of baby wearing, they are so uncomfortable or difficult to put on. I was a little skeptical ordering this, but what could I lose. I love this carrier. I recently had a repeat c section and it didn’t hurt to carry the baby, it’s easy to put on not confusing at all and I can put it on myself. I was also able to nurse and put the little sun blocker up and no one knew what I was doing! It was nice having a little privacy in the grocery store.
