Choosing a Carrier That Makes Babywearing Easy and Comfortable

Are you looking to try babywearing with your little one? We’ve put together a list of some great carriers, slings and wraps to choose from.

One of my favourite things about using a baby carrier was the freedom it gave me. My son was a baby that loved having mama close at all times, so using the carrier allowed me to have a happy baby and still do some things around the house. Let me tell you, I got a lot of laundry folded while wearing my baby.

Not sure whether you will prefer a carrier, sling or wrap? Here are some choices to consider:

This baby and child carrier from LILLEBaby can be used to hold your little one in six different positions. It has an ergonomic design and is machine washable.

This Bebamour New Style Designer baby carrier and sling offers great lumbar support and padded adjustable shoulder straps. It is made with breathable material and allows parents different options for carrying their baby or toddler.

The classic BabyBjorn baby carrier has an ergonomic design that supports baby’s head, back and hips. It is simple to put on and remove and can be easily adjusted.

Infantino’s Flip Advanced 4-in-1 convertible carrier features adjustable seat, leg openings, waist belt and straps for a customizable fit. Parents can carry their baby four different ways.

When it comes to babywearing it is ideal to find a carrier, wrap or sling that will be comfortable for you and your little one. It is also important to take the time to learn how to properly adjust your carrier to prevent strain on your back and to ensure baby is safely nestled in. Hopefully this list will help you find your perfect match.
