13Thirteen (pronounced "thirteen thirteen") is a consultancy, retail and distribution business specialising in Babywearing, based in Singapore. We are a dedicated team of experienced parents who aim to empower and equip modern mums and dads with the knowledge and tools you need to be confident parents on-the-go, through education and by offering a wide range of ergonomic baby carriers for rent and sale. We also design our own line of lightweight, functional and ergonomic diaper backpacks that conveniences and truly caters to your needs as modern parents.
At 13Thirteen, we believe that skin-to-skin and babywearing are crucial in shaping the bond between parent and child. This is why we encourage skin-to-skin and Babywearing right from the very start. It is also the reason why we've brought in patented VIJA Design skin-to-skin garments to facilitate kangaroo care. Read more about the benefits of skin-to-skin here.
To meet each parent's differing needs, lifestyles and budgets, we offer various types of baby carriers from a wide range of reputable brands. To us, there is no “best” carrier - it is about finding a baby carrier that suits YOU best.
We are the Exclusive Distributor of Chimparoo and Little Frog baby carriers. We are also an authorised retailer of LennyLamb, Natibaby, Emeibaby, Soul Slings, Naked Panda Designs, Baby Roo Huckepack, Manduca and Boba.
