Best Baby Carriers

The right baby carrier keeps your baby close, even when you don’t have any spare hands to carry them. This can promote parent and baby bonding, gently helps your baby transition from womb to world, and more easily lets you cross off tasks from your to-do list. Continue Reading...

Reds baby carrier plusLove it - bub is secure and the harness doesn't feel restrictive or "back pack" like. Accessories have been a welcomed addition to the set up and the multi-layered fabrics are great for us in Queensland. Show details

It hurt my back. I'm surprised at the reviewsIt hurt my back so I've gone with a different brand now. Also not that easy to put on. It wasn't as bad for my husband who has wide shoulders.

LifesaverWhen we have tried rocking, pacing, patting, shushing, feeding, changing and everything else you can imagine, and none of it has worked, this is my fail safe! It started out as an option for when we go out but it settles my 6 week old Bub like nothing else so now when she won’t settle we put it on to get through our housework! Show details

Love It!I love my Baby K'tan Breeze. It is such a lovely light weight easy to use design. I have a bigger baby boy and the wrap tucks him in very securely so i know his safe while still having my hands free. Absolutely perfect for travelling on your own with bub! Very impressed. I bought mine off SlingsNThings website - came very quick - great service.

It doesn’t fit meIt look okay but it’s hard to put the baby in and out. It doesn’t have a picked the the mum can reach when carrying the baby. It pulls on your shoulders and it gives me a headache. The weight isn’t distributed well and instead heavily on shoulders Show details

ExcellentMy Hippychick has been amazing - a lifesaver for my bad back. I would recommend it to anyone with a heavy baby or toddler.
Easy to take anywhere, washes in the machine, simple to put on
Gets a bit sweaty around my tummy in the summer

Buy from any retailer rather than their website!I feel the hip seat is not as good as my ergobaby 360 carrier, so I decided to return it. The customer service is a waste. After spending $20+ postage, after the return was received half a month ago, after two emails asking if the refund was processed, no refund was received by now.

Just do not buy anything from the ergobaby website!

Just love itI highly recommend the Stokke MyCarrier. There are lots of different positions, you can use as just a front carrier or a front-and-back carrier.

It seems complicated but is quite simple once you do it a few times, and it gives you great back support. Comfort and support are the main strengths.

Types of Baby Carriers

Wraps

These involve wrapping a large piece of fabric tightly around your body and baby’s body. You may need to practise a few times to get the hang of it, especially if you’re new to baby wrapping. The sturdiest baby wraps are made from cotton, linen, wool or hemp, and are called woven wraps. You can even wear your baby on your back using a woven wrap.

Wring slings

A wring sling is like a version of a woven wrap that has rings below the shoulder. After threading the fabric through the rings and putting the sling on yourself, you can wrap your baby from bottom to top (shoulders). With a ring sling, you can front carry, back carry or hip carry. Adjust the looseness or tightness by pulling on the fabric or pushing it back through rings.

Soft structured carriers (or SSCs)

These come with padded shoulder straps and a buckled, padded waistband. They are supportive and don’t require much practise to use (other than figuring out which positions your baby likes to rest in best). SSCs may have options for front-carry facing in, front-carry facing out, back carry and hip carry.

Less common baby carriers include mei tai carriers, and frame/backpack carriers (mainly for hiking with toddlers).

Baby Carrier Quick Tips

  • Make sure the carrier you choose is age appropriate for your baby. For example, some carriers aren’t suitable for newborns or babies that can’t hold their heads up.
  • Look for a carrier that evenly distributes weight and mainly puts it on your hips (especially in a structured soft carrier).
  • Choose a carrier that will be comfortable to wear year-round. Some SSCs come with newborn inserts, but these can often get hot and heavy in summer.
