Gorilla Carrier and Other Dad Approved Gear

Birth of My Son 6
This is my husband, Dylan.

I’d like to give a shout out to him, because he’s an amazing dad.

He LOVES being a dad, and he loves spoiling our son.

For example, he’s the guy that will sneak toys into the shopping cart at the store. Then of course the baby drools on them or puts them in his mouth and I have to buy it.

Or he’s the one who gets excited that I got him a glow in the dark pajama set and can’t wait to put it on our son.

Onward with the post.

My husband has been very active in parenthood. Here are the 4 items that he loves to use and actually brags about using to his friends.

#1 The Gorilla Carrier

Gorilla Carrier Baby Gear

Okay. So my hubby and I are avid hikers. We live in the great northland, and pretty much every Sunday you can find us on the trail. So as soon as our baby was able (6 months!) we wanted to start getting him out there.

Prior to this we were able to go on nice long walks with our stroller which we LOVED, but it just wasn’t the same. And the front carrier (we had a Baby BJorn) just wasn’t comfortable when used for a long period of time (and we love long hikes).

We LOVE the Gorilla Carrier we ordered off of Amazon. We had a choice of 3 different colors, and I let my husband pick since he’d most likely be the primary carrier.

He was SOOOOO excited to take it out. He also loves just walking around town or through the mall with it on. Seriously!

It has cool features like a ton of storage space, a removable backpack, and a sun/bug cover.

It’s easy to get on and off, and our little guy loves it (in this picture he had just woke up from falling asleep in it)!

#2 The Baby Ball Pit

Ball Pit Baby Gear

We got this baby ball pit as a baby shower gift from our gift registry on Amazon, and my husband thinks it’s the coolest thing ever. It’s basically an activity gym, but the sides come up and you can fill it with the plastic balls! It’s great! Our son can spend a lot of time in it without getting bored.

Plus it lets him practice grabbing, pulling, and moving objects around.

#3 Exersaucer/Jumper

Baby Toys Jumper Exersaucer Walker

These are the BEST for when you just need to put the baby down for 5 minutes and get something done without worrying. He’s at the age now where he rolls/pulls/kicks/slides so you cannot leave him alone in anything!

HOWEVER this jumper keeps him stationary. He can warm up lunch or make coffee or go to the bathroom and not be worried about the baby rolling into something or falling off of anything.

Also, he LOVES it. He can spend 20 minutes easy in it. PLUS it counts as Tummy Time (anything that exercises their back and neck is considered tummy time).

#4 The Baby Backpack Diaper Bag

Baby Registry Backpack

My husband chose this diaper bag backpack to put on our gift registry, and he was SO EXCITED when we got it. He actually WANTS to be in charge of the diaper bag, and he isn’t embarrassed about going out in public with the baby by himself.

So many diaper bags are geared towards women, and this one is gender neutral.

It has PLENTY of storage, it’s comfortable, and we LOVE it.

It also comes with a changing pad, which is pretty cool.

Thanks for reading!

Hopefully your hubby or man enjoys these products as much as mine does!
