First of all, baby wearing is not for everyone. And while one carrier may work perfectly for one parent, it could be an entirely different experience for someone else. The best advice we can give is the most obvious: comparison shop as much as you can. Think about a few factors: will it be comfortable for both baby AND you? Is it adjustable if more than one person will be using it? Do you want a carrier just for the baby phase, or for toddlers, too? Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite baby wearing options to hit the market this year. Good luck finding the one that best suits you and your little one!
Ergobaby Four Position 360 Carrier
Ergobaby has long been an industry favorite, and its new carrier offers a lightweight construction that allows you to carry baby in 4 different positions as they grow. Smart thinking!
Tula Ergonomic Baby Carrier
The Tula has become one of the “must-have” carriers, which has a lot to do with their adorable designs. We love that they come with adjustable straps and can be worn as baby grows (from 15-45 lbs)! A toddler version is also available.
Baby K’tan Wrap
The Baby K’Tan continues to be one of the best wraps on the market for it’s breathable fabric (100% natural cotton), ergonomic positioning and the fact that you can wear baby in multiple positions. Great price point, too.
Boba 4G Carrier
Like the Tula, the Boba 4G carrier also comes in a variety of patterns. This soft-structured baby carrier is able to carry babies from 7-45 lbs, and comfortably fits varying heights of the person carrying the baby. We also love its multiple pockets for storing keys, wipes, etc, making it possible to leave your house without having to carry a big bag with you. Hurrah!
