Bitybean, llc., founded in 2012, is a small Vermont company dedicated to the mission of helping to build better lives through better products. Bitybean's founder, Doug Hartwell, started with a vision for a child carrier for his daughter that would be extremely portable. He consulted product design experts and combined user-centric design philosophy, state- of-the-art backpack fabrics and hardware, and optimized design to create a carrier that is totally different from other products on the market.


Bitybean weighs just 8 ounces and compresses into a pouch the size of a child's water bottle and is unisex and stylish. It is convertible for both front and back carry and can be used for infants over 3 months between 8 pounds and 40 pounds. Bitybean was awarded a “2012 Innovation Award” from the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association, was named “Best Value” in FitPregnancy magazine's 2013 carriers Buyers Guide, and received a "Best in Show" award at the 2013 NY Baby Show.
