QuickSmart meets the world’s strictest safety standards with all the features today’s busy parents need, and nothing they don’t.
A dependable baby carrier is an essential piece of gear that helps parents keep their baby close and secure while they go about their daily activities. Baby carriers also give parents great flexibility, because they are able to take their baby on hikes, walks and other activities, where a stroller would be cumbersome or hard to maneuver. Baby carriers are lightweight and easy to just grab and go. There is one problem though with having just a carrier — there is nowhere for a baby to sit securely if one takes it off. One mother’s desire to simplify her life by combining two useful products in a new and creative way led to the birth of Onya Baby.

The mat works to show off a baby or to hold her for nursing, resting or changing when a changing table just isn’t an option.

This is furniture that is designed to play many different roles so that the buyer is investing in pieces that will be kept for years and reused as the family expands.
