    Using only the best fabric

    Air Mosaic range has the same fabric composition, but with the added elegance of a specially dyed subtle checkered pattern.

    Step One Original uses the softest fabric made of cotton, polyester and polyurethane the fabric is soft to the touch, yet provides just enough elasticity for support. 

    Stylish | Secure | Simple

    Step One Wrap Baby Carrier is super intuitive to wear. It's easily adjustable to fit both mums and dads - never worry about buying the wrong size!

    This baby carrier is designed to function like a wrap - but we've made it easier than ever to put on - simply pull it over like a t-shirt.

    Buckle up and enjoy the ride.

    Even weight distribution & always supporting your back

    The Step One waist belt helps to support the baby's weight evenly and efficiently, across the wearer's shoulders, back and waist. 

    Carrying your baby should never cause a burden to your shoulders and back.

    3 layers of support prevents sagging

    As your baby sits comfortably in Pognae's Step One Wrap Baby Carrier, they are supported by 3 layers of extra-soft fabric. Layer 3 is supported by buckles at the back to prevent your baby from dipping down - a common occurrence with other wraps.

    Ergonomic & Safe

    Side buckles prevent the baby from falling out unexpectedly. The baby carrier is designed to enable M-shape posture according to international babywearing recommendations for healthy development.

    Good carrier but customer experience a bit poor

    Was excited to try this carrier as I wanted a wrap / carrier light weight and easy for around the house. Delivery took a bit longer than expected, they acknowledged it was delayed. However when it was finally delivered, it was dropped off to our neighbours house (not the companies fault). When I opened it, the colour looks dark blue not the light blue I’ve ordered. I’ve emailed the company a week ago but yet to hear a response.

    I haven’t really had a good chance to use it yet because I’d like the colour I’ve ordered. Have tried it on once for fit and seems to work, although would like a bit more head support for my 8 week old. Hopefully by the time I hear back and get my light blue carrier, bub will have a bit more head control. Can someone please respond to my email and send a new colour out. Really need it to carry baby hands free and chase the toddler around.. thank you!

    Great place for a nap!

    I borrowed this carrier from a friend and loved it so much I bought my own!
    I put my baby in it around the house when he’s feeling a bit cuddly and I need to get things done, he falls asleep pretty quickly.
    We’ve been to the beach in it, to the shops and even to the rugby! Every time he falls asleep! It’s great!

    Best baby purchase

    Absolutely love the pognae carriers. I purchased the 4 in 1 package which includes the soft wrap. My baby absolutely loves it and it is such a godsend that I also bought a step one soft carrier so I could keep one in the house and one in the car and never be without. My baby settles every time in this carrier

    Amazing, Babywearing Made Simple!

    This product has become one of my favourite purchases to date. The carrier was bought and received a few days after baby was born, and has been in use ever since.

    The product's design is intuitively simple and ensures a beautiful tight 'hug' sensation, without feeling bulky. I opted for the lightweight mesh material which has ensured comfort & breathability as we navigate warmer weather.

    I love that this product makes spontaneous walks around the neighbourhood simple. It has also helped many a time to encourage sleep, while saving weary arm & back muscles. As a bonus, if bub does fall asleep while being 'worn', transferring them to an alternate position out of the carrier is an easy, gentle process.

    I highly recommend this product, and would consider gifting it to expectant friends.

    I wish we had this since day one, our little one loves to be upright and walking around with her in your arms can getting pretty hard on the shoulders and arms. This has been a lifesaver, light and breathable and great quality. I’ve made my mind up to buy another carrier for when she is a little older. If you are thinking of getting one you will not regret it. It’s simple to put on and take off. You can even take it off with Bub still asleep. If that’s not a winner I don’t know what is. I’ve now got two free hands ❤️

    Amazing product!

    I absolutely love my pognae carrier as does my little one! It’s so comfy for me and him and it’s great quality! He literally falls asleep every time I put him in it within minutes! Have recommended it to so many people!
    Thanks again Pognae!

    Comfortable, easy to use, lightweight

    We love our Pognae carrier. Especially because our baby was an early premmie, we struggled to find something that could cater to her now as well as long term future use. The carrier is easy to use, lightweight and compact for storage and keeping under your pram/in backpack. My hubby also loves to now ‘wear our baby’ and it’s super convenient as we have a busy toddler running around. I just wish I got the camel colour but it was not in stock at the time we placed our order. But all in all, no complaints and we would certainly recommend to our friends. I might also mention, my hubby has a fused spine so this is super comfortable for him and we’ve tried multiple carriers!
    Thank you Pognae.

    Simply the BEST!

    I have spent a small fortune trying different styles of carriers and this is by far the best in my opinion.
    No complicated wrapping technique to complete while flustered with a fussing baby.
    The material is sooo light and breathable, must in this climate, yet supportive and secure all the same.
    So easy to put on and the added support underneath takes away the feeling bubs could slip through.
    Investment wise this is great, currently using it for my newborn but with time we’ll have the option to wear facing out and right up to 15kg which is great.

    Loving my new carrier and so does my 8week old bubs, my husband bought one from a different brand but its too bulky for me so i decided to do some research and see if i could find a wrap carrier and AMAZINGLY found this!. Its perfect for summer cause its breathable and doesnt make my little one feel hot like most carriers do. He instantly feels cozy and falls asleep on me. Would definitely recommend for new moms to buy. :)

    I am Grateful for this purchase! I ordered it trusting from the other reviews/mum’s reviews. It has worked to put my little Bub to sleep and to relax him. It also takes the strain off me carrying him aswell and gives me some rest regarding that. It is very easy to assemble once you get the hang of it & has adjustment options. It is very handy to have when you’re with a baby or have more than one. Great design & thank you, it came at the right time too & has helped big time.
