I was luckily enough to catch on to Gracie and Sam Carriers before her customs list was booked out 6 months! I had previously done a wrap conversion mei tai with Val, and was beyond thrilled with the quality and craftsmanship.  After a few months on trying many different brands of buckle carriers, I couldn’t find what I was looking for.  As a petite momma, I was having a hard time finding something that fit me well in the waist and shoulders.  It always seemed like baby was hanging off my back. Gracie and Sam to the rescue!


I started a conversation about this with Valerie, and she was on it with a revision to the pattern to come up with a waist that would work for the smaller framed carrying mommas.  She stated that body diversity is important within her brand and she was excited to have another offering in the line up.  You can find a review from a plus-sized Gracie and Sam momma, here.

Her carriers are fully compliant with CPSIA standards (more about that, here) and well worth the wait.  You can send in new or used wraps for conversion to a full buckle, new wraps only for mei tai conversion. I chose Didymos Lisca Pastell for conversion to a full buckle for my toddler.  It is the only wrap that he will sleep in everytime and it was the right choice.  Between the thick cush of the wrap and the high density foam in the straps, this thing is the most comfortable carrier I have ever tried.  I have worn for hours straight with my almost 2 year old and both of us stay comfortable.


Find a wide variety of options, including ready to ship items at the Gracie and Sam Shop.
