Olives & Applesauce News

Olives & Applesauce has been a well loved brand of baby carrier since it was founded in 2006.  It has been one of the brands that has been used most by my family over the years and my husband’s favorite carrier was an O&A.  So when the original owner decided to move on, I was relieved when she was able to find a buyer!  Production was slowed during the transition, but Olives & Applesauce has increased production and recently introduced several new prints.

Sadly, many people are under the impression that O&A closed, and so you don’t see them recommended as often anymore on the babywearing groups.  But they are still around and making the same great carriers many of us have come to love!

O&A at a glace

Years back when Olives & Applesauce was still doing custom orders, they came out with a line of carriers made with their most requested customizations called the Ava.  The Ava cost more than the standard O&A carrier, but came with added features like a front pocket and cinching hood.  When the new owners took over, they decided to adopt the Ava design as their standard and currently only model and lowered the price from $159 to $149.99 USD.

All Olives & Applesauce carriers now come with the follow features:

Body Design - Built in infant insert. Seat darts and light leg padding help keep baby comfortable. Contoured waistband that provides support and helps transfer weight. Cinching sleeping hood that can be stored inside carrier. Front pocket that can be used to store diapers and other items.

Straps - Duel adjustable side straps allow for easier adjusting and more customizable fit. Shoulder straps can be crossed for used in a backpack style with the chest clip. Shoulder straps and waistband are padded for added comfort.

Details - One size carrier fits babies from 8 to 35 lbs. Carrier can be used to carry baby on front, back and hip. Machine washable on gentle cycle. Ethically made in the Dominican Republic.

New Prints

These are some of the fun new prints Olives & Applesauce has released:

Buying O&A

We currently have both new prints and some older discontinued prints in stock. Since the discontinued prints are in the older packaging and we need to clear them out, they are an amazing deal at the clearance prices!  Check them out at Zerberts and grab one at for a great deal while they last.

Do you have an Olives & Applesauce and love it?  Tell us about it in the comments!
