Beacon - Tula Baby Carrier
'Beacon' is a fully printed Tula Baby Carrier made to honor the families facing the difficult journey of childhood cancer. For every 'Beacon' carrier sold, we will donate 10% of proceeds to the St. Baldrick's Foundation so they can continue funding the fight against childhood cancers.
'Beacon' expresses the connected love, care and hope that surrounds each child and family facing cancer: each element coming together to offer strength and support. 'Beacon's' geometric pattern, in a bright yellow-gold color, covers the body panel, waistband, and shoulders straps. 'Beacon' is lined with light gray canvas and comes with a light gray hood.
We also want to connect September, the month of awareness, to the real families on this difficult journey. 'Beacon' is being modeled by Kelly Fondots and her family, whose own daughter, Ivy, has been battling cancer. View our blog as we introduce you to more families facing childhood cancer who have found babywearing helpful in their journeys.

*Infants and newborns weighing 7 - 15 pounds must use the Baby Tula Infant Insert (sold separately). Infants more than 15 pounds must continue using the Baby Tula Infant Insert with the Standard Tula Baby Carrier until the baby can hold head up consistently for an extended period of time, and is tall enough to be placed in a fully seated position with knees dangling freely with knees above bottom in an ergonomic M-shape position.
We do not recommend back carrying your child until your baby has strong and consistent head, neck, and torso control, and can push him or herself independently into, and remain in, a seated position on a consistent basis.
