We recently launched our very own Tula baby carrier, exclusive to Natural Baby Shower. Our design team blended calming and pretty neutral hues of pinks, creams and earthy dark rose colours to create Rosewood Rainbows - a design truly unique and personal to us as a brand. But of course we had to find out what our parent testers think of our exclusive design, and the overall experience using Tula’s popular Explore carrier.

We were so excited to receive our new Tula Explore carrier in the post. Our youngest, Elizabeth, was just two weeks old when our parcel was delivered, just in time to take with us on our first staycation as a family of four. We were heading to Wales in our motorhome and it was the perfect opportunity to give this carrier a good test run!
As a family, we spend a lot of time exploring the outdoors and touring in our motorhome which usually involves a lot of uneven terrain, often unsuitable for a pram. A versatile carrier such as the Tula Explore is by far the most appropriate method of baby transport for us; light, extremely neat and compact, It’s the perfect carrier for our adventures. It has always been really important that the products we choose fit into our lifestyle and make travelling and exploring with a baby easier for us, this carrier ticks all the boxes.
The Tula Explore is really easy to adjust for a newborn to offer maximum head and neck support and the instructions are straightforward to follow. Elizabeth feels secure and comfortable in the carrier and she is always content to be in it. Being so closely held and carried around seems to settle her quickly which is a big bonus for us, as she isn’t easily soothed! Aside from the superb quality, soft fabric and comfortable adjustable straps, this carrier has a couple really great features which make it stand out. The first feature we particularly love is the detachable hood which offers great protection as a sun shade, rain hood and also extra privacy during feeds. Another feature which we have found incredibly useful is a large velcro pocket at the front of the waist band which is big enough to fit essentials such as your phone and keys.
Exclusive to Natural Baby Shower, the Rosewood Rainbows design is so beautiful and with its muted, natural colour tones - it’s both subtle and stylish. A fitting symbol of thanks, hope and solidarity, the rainbows and hearts in the pattern act as a gentle nod to images of rainbows seen across the country during the pandemic and we love how NBS have managed to incorporate this into the design.
We could not think of anyway to improve the Tula Explore Rosewood Rainbows. It has been absolutely indispensable for us with a newborn and we never leave home without it. We even wear it at home quite often just to soothe Elizabeth to sleep or get some household jobs done! We definitely consider the Tula Explore a newborn essential, but the great thing is that this carrier is not just suitable for newborns and young babies, it can also be adapted to fit your little one as they grow until they are four years old.
We can’t wait to take our Tula on many more journeys with us, it truly will give us the freedom to travel and explore with Elizabeth; whether we are climbing to the top of a mountain or walking along a white, sandy beach, Elizabeth can now come along with us for the adventure thanks to the Tula Explore Rosewood Rainbows baby carrier.

The first day we got our carrier, I firstly could not believe the speed in which we received it! The packaging was excellent and when I set eyes on the design I was in love!
The rainbow carrier has such beautiful colours and being gender neutral was a bonus. The material was of excellent quality and I soon started watching the online tutorials provided on how to use the carrier. I could not wait to use it!
Our son was suffering from Colic and a dairy intolerance along with a tongue tie, so wanted to be on me in the upright position the majority of his life for the first 5 weeks. I honestly don’t know what we would have done without the carrier. It solved so many problems we encountered along the way.
The carrier is the easiest carrier I have used in terms of adjusting straps, getting the baby in the carrier with ease etc the tutorials were so straight forward it was a matter of 10 minutes and I had mastered it. I love the little hood feature which is perfect to protect your baby from any elements which is removable. I also found the little pouch on the front perfect for my phone and keys!
I am able to breastfeed using this carrier with ease which is a major plus for me! My husband is also a big fan of this carrier and has used it multiple times too for our little one. This is my third baby so I feel I know a good product when I see one, you won’t be disappointed in this! I can even use it for my 2 year old toddler on my back too which has also been super useful. The longevity of the product is fantastic and will last through to 20kg.
The only issue you will encounter is which beautiful design to chose from! Thank you Tula, it’s a yes from me and my Family!
