BabyHawk price increase
Due largely to increased cotton prices as well as fuel prices and other factors, the babywearing community has seen price increases from many manufacturers. BabyHawk is the latest manufacturer to announce a price increase. Affective immediately, prices on BabyHawk carriers will rise $9 each. So the BabyHawk mei tai will now retail for $89 and the Oh Snap is now $149.
It is not likely that this will be the last increase we see. Maya Wrap, Wrapsody, Hoppediz, Sleepy Wrap, and several other brands have already implemented an increase. Moby has yet to announce an increase, but I will be surprised if we don't see one this year.
For more information on the recent price increases, read the previous post where we discussed the issue.
