Giving birth to a baby is already a challenge… carrying him or her around shouldn’t be a chore. There are a variety of baby slings and baby carriers available to help you do your chores, your shopping and even your daily walk without having to tire your arms having to carry baby as well. We’ve come up with a top list of baby carriers to help you choose the best for you!
1. Ergo Baby Carrier
The Ergo Baby Carrier is one of the most popular baby carriers on the market. It features wide padded straps that distribute the weight around your shoulders and hips and a safe, correct positioning of your baby’s spine in the seat. It’s not very pretty, but it’s pretty comfortable.
2. Baby Bjorn Baby Carrier Active
Baby Bjorn is probably one of the most popular brands on the market. It has lumbar, head and side support for your baby and ergonomic shoulder straps for you. It’s also very versatile as you can remove the head support when your baby grows old enough. You can also turn it around so your baby faces forward.
3. Moby Wrap
It might seem complicated and daunting at first, but the Moby Wrap is a godsend to mothers with tired arms. It’s perfect for breastfeeding moms as it keeps the baby close and leaves your privacy intact. Your baby’s weight is well distributed across your shoulders and back, giving you a comfy carrier that also looks really stylish.
4. Maya Wrap
Beautiful for every occasion, the Maya wrap is one of the simplest fabric wraps around. It’s made for short-term carrying, but you’ll be comfortable, no worries. The shoulder strap is lightly padded and the ring lets you fit it to carriers and babies alike. The tail can be used as a nursing cover, too!
5. Bush Baby Cocoon
This is one of the more technologically advanced. It features a number of straps, buckles, support and belts. Your baby can face inwards or outwards as he or she grows up. You can also just throw it in the machine for a quick wash. Safe AND practical, what more could you want?
6. BabyHawk Mei Tei
If you’re attracted to pretty things, the Mei Tei is the right choice for you. But fashion doesn’t mean lack of function: your baby is safely held and you can tie the straps as they fit you. Instructions are easy to find on the company’s website and you can buy one for every outfit!
7. Didymo Sling
Yes, they are expensive. But these ring slings simply use the most gorgeous, luxurious fabrics you can find. The diagonal cut means your baby is comfy but doesn’t bounce around, and the no-bleed, non-toxic dyes mean you can wash it without losing style.With our top 7 baby carriers, we’re sure there’s a lucky one for you.
