Do You Need a Carrier?

I would say yes. You need it. Sure, you can use a stroller when you’re walking outside and a bouncy chair or swing at home. But it is the only gadget that allows you to do your private thing, hands-free, while your baby relaxes.

If you don’t have a baby yet, you can ask those who have a newborn. Most of them will say you that baby carrier is their favorite toddler product, no matter the model or brand. It provides your arms a rest and can simply sub in for a stroller, especially if your baby gets upset when they can’t see you or you need to navigate crowded places like airports and stadiums. It’s likewise excellent to use if you like hiking and want to take your child along.

Carriers are usually used when the baby is small, till six months or so. You can continue to use them also in the toddler stage.

Most parents declare that baby carrier is a lifesaver, so you literally can’t go wrong buying one of yourself.

Types of Baby Carriers

Ok, so now I think we all know you need one, but what to choose? We will help. Baby carriers come in various styles:

  • Wraps: A very long piece of stretchy textile you configure and tie around your body, normally over your shoulders and midsection, to build a carrier.
  • Slings: A wide piece of textile that goes across one shoulder and over your torso.
  • Structured Carriers: Looks like a backpack with bands over the shoulder and a padded carrying “pack” that can be set on your chest or back.
