Keeping track of all of the baby supplies can be exhausting. And when you’re heading out for a trip? Forget it. There’s barely room to fit the baby in, the car gets so packed.
Which is why we appreciate great items that can do double – even triple duty. Take the Deluxe 3 in 1 Combo Carrier from Snazzy Baby. Your baby can be strapped in to face you, face away from you or ride on either hip. It can be used for breast-feeding. And a portable travel chair feature lets you turn a regular chair – or shopping cart – into a high chair restraint, giving you a little freedom.
It also comes with a storage pouch for snacks, wipes or your phone. And – bonus! – each carrier comes with a free pair of Snazzy Baby Leg Warmers.

While there are many different types of baby carriers on the market today, most only serve one purpose – to carry baby. However, the Snazzy Baby Mum’s Deluxe 3 in 1 Combo Carrier serves three distinct purposes – a hip carrier (front or rear facing), travel chair and shopping cart restraint system.
The Combo Carrier from Snazzy Baby is a cool, lightweight, ergonomically designed hip carrier for today’s parents on the go. Its multi-purpose design gives moms and dads many choices and is a product that can be used for an extended period of time. The Combo Carrier comfortable to use and it is dedicated to making mom’s life easier, simple and safe.
With the Combo Carrier, you have many different choices when carrying baby. Your baby can face you or face outwards, and you can use the carrier on either hip. Plus, transitioning baby from being carried on your hip to sitting in the high chair restraint system is a breeze. Simply follow the instructions, which are located on the interior of the carrier, and you can have baby sitting with you at restaurants (or in the shopping cart) in no time!
When the thought of a hip carrier first crossed my mind, I figured that it might be uncomfortable to have all of that weight on one shoulder. Well, Snazzy Baby thought of that too and they added a new state of the art technology gel based shoulder strap insert that evenly distributes baby’s weight. Plus, its lightweight design doesn’t add hardly any additional weight for you to have to carry around.
Using the Combo Carrier might seem complicated at first, but thanks to the color coded fastener clips, you will have baby on your hip, secured in a shopping cart or sitting in a regular chair in a flash. Also, to help you get more comfortable with you carrier and to understand the instructions a litter better, there is an instructional DVD that comes with every Combo Carrier from Snazzy Baby!
To ensure that baby does not slip or slide when seated in a regular chair, the Snazzy Baby Combo Carrier features unique “traction beads” on a neoprene base system that keeps baby stable. And, to make sure baby is kept cool and comfortable, the carrier has a breathable cotton mesh lining and a mesh vented panel.
On the front of the Combo Carrier you will find convenient storage compartments that are perfect for keeping an extra diaper and wipes, keys, cell phone, pacifier and the chair strap (to be used when the carrier is being used as a travel chair). Plus, the carrier is specifically designed to assist moms while breastfeeding.
\If you are a busy mom (or dad), then the Combo Carrier from Snazzy Baby is perfect for you. No longer do you have to tote around a baby carrier, shopping cart cover and travel high chair with you wherever you go. Just toss the Combo Carrier into your car and you are ready to get going on your adventure, whether it be to the grocery store or to the beach!

When it comes to buying baby gear for my kiddos, safety is my first and foremost thought. My boys are the most important thing in the world to me and I will do anything in my power to keep them safe. When I am looking for any specific product I always have to make sure that I am getting something that is safe for us to use. It always scares me with all of the recalls that are out on so many different items and I want to make sure that I do everything that I can to stay away from those products.
“Snazzy Baby evolved in 2003 when many years of research and development lead to the birth of Snazzy Baby Knee Pads, a project embarked upon when Cyndy and Brian Mundy’s young son, Lucas screamed and cried while being bathed, as his rug burnt, red, tender and bruised knees hit the water. That first major developmental milestone had suddenly become a nightmare!
Snazzy Baby Knee Pads have allowed parents to enjoy their babies, no longer having to worry if their baby is crawling properly on any floor surface or asking themselves, What do we do with our baby when we want to be outdoors? Little children with special needs around the world are now able to explore floor surfaces and get the right amount of traction to get up on their knees.
Our Research and Development team are driven by a strong desire to create products which are safe, fun and easy to use. Our new baby carrier and travel chair are two of our new products developed by Snazzy Baby. Snazzy Baby products are available through a worldwide network of distributors and retailers.
Snazzy Baby is committed to developing and sourcing products designed to safely protect precious babies. We love products which simplify everyday life and allow parents to enjoy every minute of their lives with their baby, doing the things they want to do while ensuring their baby is protected when using our products.” – Snazzy Baby
I was so excited when I was contacted about doing a review for them. Snazzy Baby was wonderful and sent us a “My Baby’s Deluxe Travel Chair” in navy blue to review. When Monkey was little I had bought one of the My Little Seat tie on infant seats for bringing with us when we go out. The one major complaint that I had with it was that you had to use a chair that was about the size of a folding chair. How many people have chairs at their table the size of a folding chair?? Almost no one. Since it didn’t fit right on many chairs I had to watch him super closely because there was a time or two that the chair slipped off of the back of the chair and he almost went tumbling to the floor. Not good!
The Deluxe Travel Chair is a multi-purpose travel seat that works in almost any circumstance whether it be at home, a friends house, or a restaurant. You can use it on a cart, chair, high chair, or even strap it onto yourself and have your kiddo sit on your lap. You can even use it when you are flying on an airplane (only when you are in the cruising portion of the flight) so that you can keep your child secure and strapped to you.
One of the most frustrating things when you go to certain restaurants is the fact that a lot of them don’t have high chairs or anywhere for little ones to sit when they aren’t old enough to use a chair on their own. This chair makes it to where you always have a safe and secure place for your little one to sit anywhere you go. One of my favourite features is that it has a non-slip bottom so that your little one won’t slide down when they are sitting in the seat. Monkey gets so frustrated when he is trying to sit up like a big boy in a chair and keeps sliding down. When using the Deluxe Travel Chair you never have to worry about your child sliding down in their seat.
Monkey looks and feels so safe and secure in his travel seat and it is wonderful knowing that it is buckled onto the chair so he has no way of falling off and getting hurt. I love the fact that it has 4 high quality snaps keeping him in and it goes over his shoulders so that he can’t stand up and fall out.
One last wonderful thing about the chair is that it is machine washable so that you can easily get all of that spilled food off of it. So many kids products that are made these days aren’t washable which seams so silly to me! With the Deluxe Travel Chair you just throw it into the wash and hang it on the clothes line to dry and you will have a nice clean chair to use over and over again.
If you or anyone that you know is in need of something easy to use, compact, safe, and good quality to carry around with you in the diaper bag to use as a seat for your kiddo make sure that you check out Snazzy Baby. I would definitely recommend this chair to anyone that is looking.

Reviews by Mom to Bed By 8
When I first visited the Snazzy Baby website my eyes peeled to their knee pads for baby. Ever since Elliot began crawling on the floor, I have it in my mind that we needed something like this to keep his knees from harm. We have all hardwood and vinyl and it can be hard on his little legs. So I watched out everyday for about a week for them to arrive, so excited about my find. Though when they did, I was fairly surprised. I paid close attention to the design on the website but once they were in my hand I almost put them right back in the box. Now I am so glad I actually gave them the chance they deserved because we use them often.
The Snazzy Baby Knee Pads are a little thicker than they appeared to me when shopping online but I have grown to really like this feature. It seems to keep his knees better padded than legwarmers and I have had a lot less trouble with Elliot’s knee area becoming dry.
The only thing I am not fond of with the knee pads is the red bands that connect the top and velcro closures. I have to be careful not to pull them too tight or it leaves a little mark for this the back of his leg. I also have to be careful not to leave it too loose or they slide down as he crawls.
Overall though I found the Snazzy Baby Knee Pads to be very useful. They are available in four colors and allow for sizing to meet your needs (via velcro closure). My four year old has even successful worn them a time or two as well. They are not a must have but do make crawling more comfortable for baby for sure.
Snazzy Baby Knee Pads features:
- Easy and simplified fastening system to ensure proper fitting every time.
- Ergonomically designed to safely give your child greater flexibility and movement.
- Improved so that children can wear for a long period of time, from 4+ months up to age 4+.

The first day I used the Snazzy Baby Mom’s Deluxe 3 in 1 Combo Carrier I really made a fool of myself. I thought in my mind I have put on a half a dozen carriers with my four children, I can do this one too without reading the instructions. Well that did not work. Why you might ask.
The Snazzy Baby Mom’s Deluxe 3 in 1 Combo Carrier is a wonderful multipurpose carrier as well. You can use it as a carrier both front and rear facing, a portable high chair and even can be used in a shopping cart (this keeps Elliot more secure than any single strap safety device I have ever seen in a shopping cart).
Though what I found to be even more amazing about this carrier is the compact size. I keep ours in the baby bag. No more bulk to be tossed from car to house and back again. Love this!
Mom’s Deluxe 3 in 1 Combo Carrier features:
- FREE pair of ‘ My Baby Leg Warmers ‘ included so you are geared up if your baby gets cool or if the weather changes unexpectedly when you are out and about.

Now the Snazzy Baby My Baby’s Own Deluxe Travel Chair is another wonderful compact on the go multipurpose baby accessory. To be completely honest I have only used it once so far to test it out; then my hubby snuck it away to his car for when he has outings with El.
The Deluxe Travel Chair even folds up into a small purse like bag all completely attached. So only one piece to keep up with. Note that is why it ended up with my husband. He loves simplicity.

- Available Now – Snazzy Baby’s All-Purpose 4 in 1 Travel Seat

Our thanks go out to Teri at Mom to Bed by 8 for such a wonderful review. The original article can be viewed here.
When I was pregnant with Big Sister E, one of the things that I quickly noticed when shopping for baby gear is that there is just so much of it. From large to small items to products that are seemingly outgrown in a week to those that last throughout childhood… it’s hard to know where to even begin.
Fortunately, I also discovered that there are some companies that I can relate to because they seem to have standards that are a little higher than others. Instead of just being useful, they want their products to withstand daily use and show no wear and tear. Instead of raising the price when the quality goes up, they work to keep things affordable.
So, when I was introduced to Snazzy Baby, right away I was glad to see that they focus on the combination of three important factors – quality, value and function – and that their award-winning products are ones that have been universally praised by parents and the juvenile gear industry alike.
Since having been founded in Australia in 2003, the Snazzy Baby name has been synonymous with the hottest and most innovative baby protection products for new parents across the world… and, when they arrived here, I could see that they would still be beneficial for my kids even though we were past the “baby” stage.
First up, the Snazzy Baby Knee pads. Even though these sounded great when I read about their ability to be used indoors or outdoors and on all floor surfaces to protect from sore knees, bruises and rug burn, my initial thought that these weren’t something that we would use with two children that no longer crawl (although, wow, these would be great for little ones who move Snazzy Baby Knee Pads or are learning to move on their knees).
But then I saw the note from Snazzy Baby that these knee pads can be used for “Commando Crawling, Crawling, Toddling, Walking, Running, Bike Riding, Ball Sports, and Playground Activities” and I immediately thought of my two accident-prone kids. As the weather warms up and we will be outside working on our bike riding skills, I knew that these would be perfect to protect not only their knees but their elbows as well.
Pulling these out, I found that the soft, durable (and machine washable!) material felt extremely comfortable and that by using the Velcro straps they were easily adjusted to any size (they are made to fit from 4+ months to 4+ years). Both Big Sister E and Little Sister B were clamouring to try them on immediately!
Available in four different colours, these knee pads have held up very well already as my girls have done their fair share of running and sliding around on them. The non-slip traction has proven to be a great addition to the design and the all-over flexibility and movement that these provide shows just how much thought Snazzy Baby put into making them a great investment for babies all the way through childhood.
Moving on to the My Baby’s Own Deluxe Travel Chair, I took one look at it and knew that it had Little Sister B’s name written all over it. This compact, multi-use temporary child restraint is just the type of product that we need for any number of situations and locations where her squirming and resistance to sitting still have made things difficult.
As I looked over the Travel Chair, right away it was obvious that this was an extremely intuitive and easy-to-use product. The entire thing is one continuous piece of fabric that unfolds out of its pouch and quickly attaches to any chair, whether in a restaurant, your home or while visiting a friend who doesn’t have a high chair or booster seat.
Considering that this works for children who are independent sitters all the way up to 37 pounds, has a non-slip bottom to help keep kids upright, only requires the use of four easy-to-secure buckles and has helpful instructions printed right inside just in case you need them, it is just the thing to keep handy for just about any outing. Putting Little Sister B in was a snap (she actually got a big kick out of strapping herself in) and, once settled, she loved her special chair!
Along with being connected to a chair, the My Baby’s Own Deluxe Travel Chair can also be attached to a shopping cart to keep kids secure while at the store. Or you can even fasten it to your own body for hands-free holding, feeding or safety during the cruising portion of an airplane flight.
What versatility! This would have been perfect to use when we traveled internationally with Big Sister E when she was 22 months old as it would have kept her securely attached to me during the plane ride but also could have been brought to all of the various locations that didn’t have an appropriate seat for her when we arrived.
However, for even more versatility, the ultimate Snazzy Baby product has to be the Deluxe 3 in 1 Combo Carrier.
A combination of a baby carrier (for both inward and outward facing) and a travel chair, the Combo Carrier has been created to ease some strain out of the busy parent’s lifestyle. For use with children from 4 months up to 3+ years, this ergonomically designed product is extremely comfortable for both the adult and the child and, with its colour-coded buckles, is fast and convenient to use.
I appreciated that Snazzy Baby had again included the instructions right on the inside as an easy reference and by having the green-matches-to-green and blue-matches-to-blue on the buckles, this carrier wasn’t hard to put on at all. Plus, with the addition of the multiple storage compartments on the front and the gel based shoulder strap (probably the softest strap I’ve ever encountered), using the 3 in 1 Combo Carrier for extended amounts of time is no problem at all.
I was pleased to find that getting this carrier on and getting Little Sister B situated wasn’t difficult at all. In fact, it simply involved strapping it around my waist, placing her in (when I was putting it on myself I sat down in a chair), connecting the buckles and then placing the shoulder strap over my head.
I’ve used plenty of other carriers that required an extra person to help, so it was great to know that I could use this one on my own without any problems. As for Little Sister B, whether she has been hanging out on my hip or that of my husband, she loves being able to ride along next to us and always has a big grin in doing so.
The very first time that Little Sister B sat in the Combo Carrier she declared it “Comfy! Comfy!” and I agreed with her. I can see how easy this would be to use with younger children, especially as they can face in or out, and the fact that Snazzy Baby has taken extra steps to ensure everything from the child’s even weight distribution to meeting or exceeding safety standards just makes it even easier to have peace of mind when using it.
But this product does more than just act as a baby carrier, it can also transform easily into its own travel chair or child restraint (great for in a shopping cart) with a few simple adjustments to the straps. There is even a separate strap included (in the storage pocket) that is quickly clipped on to make sure the carrier is completely secure when hooked onto a chair.
In just a few motions I was able to transfer Little Sister B from riding to sitting… and she thought it was hilarious!
One more added bonus to the 3 in 1 Combo Carrier? It comes with a free pair of My Baby’s Leg Warmers, a fun and funky way to protect little legs (or arms) indoors or outdoors. Just pull these brightly-coloured, lightweight, one-size-fits-all leg warmers on whenever and wherever for kids of all ages!
As a whole, I’ve found all three of these products to have lived up to Snazzy Baby’s claims. They are not only versatile and convenient to have, but the focus on safety is something that any parent can appreciate with their child, no matter what the age.
The prices are comparable to other baby gear on the market but being able to use these for an extended period of time, not to mention the variety of different ways, does add extra value to each one. A new parent could begin utilising any of the three from when their child is only a few months old and continue for years to come!
Our thanks go out to Xenia at Thanks, Mail Carrier for such a wonderful review. The original article can be viewed here.
One of the biggest challenges I face as a mom is trying to get all my daily tasks done while keeping my baby happy and entertained.
My little one is very interested in what I’m doing whether I’m cleaning around the house or making lunch, he always wants to be right in the action! One of the ways to make this possible is by using the Snazzy Baby Carrier. My little guy loves that when he is in the carrier he can have fun with me and I love that I have my hands free to get things done! Another great feature is that this carrier is designed so that baby can face in towards you or out towards the world. In the past I would have to bring multiple carriers for when my baby wanted to be in different positions (looking out or in). I also found that the Snazzy Baby Carrier is really easy to use.
I have had other carriers that I literally could not figure out how to wear! This onewas easy to snap on and go! It is also easy to adjust the straps making it possible to switch the carrier between my size and my husbands size in no time at all! Made of a lightweight, washable material I literally feel like I can throw this in my bag and go. If we have an accident I can easily clean the material. One of my sons favorite uses of his Snazzy Baby Carrier is when we are out shopping. He gets tired of the cart or stroller fast and my arms get tired of holding him. In the Snazzy Baby Carrier he is positioned so that he can put his little hands on the cart and help me push as we shop for groceries..Trust me your baby will love this!
