When I developed the Olympia baby carrier, it was a response to years of working with families as a babywearing educator and working through the same struggles repeatedly. None of the large brands seemed to be listening to what parents really wanted and needed. The solution was the Olympia, a simple to adjust carrier that did half the work for you. But we haven’t stopped listening to our customers’ feedback.
The new Olympia, the 2.0 and 2.0 Plus, will still grow with your baby, still adjust the seat automatically, but now the fabric is even thinner, luxuriously soft, and more breathable right out of the box. The panel is a couple inches taller to better fit those big kids, while still being small enough for little newborns. We have added the option to forward face out (FFO), while still keeping the option for a hip or back carry since it tends to be easier on your back. But the most exciting update is our Olympia 2.0 Plus!! The plus has shoulder straps that have 8 inches more padding to fit plus-size babywearers more comfortably. It also automatically comes with a waistband extender (to fit up to a women’s size 44/46) to keep adjustments easy to reach. This officially makes the Olympia 2.0 Plus the most size inclusive carrier available!
We think the Olympia 2.0 truly checks all the boxes you could want in a carrier:
*easy to put on yourself
*small enough to fit in a diaper bag
*lasts for years without buying a larger size
*ergonomic and supportive
How do the 2.0 and the 2.0 Plus compare?
There are two differences between the 2.0 and the Plus. The shoulder straps have an additional 8 inches of padding on the plus. In the image below the 2.0 is on the top and the Plus is on the bottom. The Plus automatically comes with a waistband extender (the waistband extender helps with mobility- it places the webbing for tightening easier to reach and adjust). The 2.0 waistband fits from 25” to 59” (approximately a women’s size 00- 26/28). The 2.0 Plus waistband fits from 25” to 75” (approximately a women’s size 00- 44/46).
