Baby Carriers are a popular way to carry your baby safely and close to you, whilst being able to go about your daily routine. They come in many different designs. At Review Baby Carriers we aim to bring you information on a selection of different models from various manufacturers so that you can make an informed choice.
A baby carrier can be the answer to your logistical problems if you have more than one child of a different age. Instead of buying and having to store a double pushchair or pram, you can carry one baby in a sling or baby carrier and the other in a single pram or pushchair.
There are several varieties of carrier to suit most ages and sizes of babies as well as parent preferences they include:
Back Baby Carrier
Typically shaped like a rucksack with a metal frame and often with storage. Good for older / larger babies as the load is well supported.
Front Baby Carrier
These are not dissimilar to a back carrier but tend to have less of a frame and allow the baby to ride up front! Ideal for new borns to 6 months.
Hip Baby Carrier
These are a relatively new idea and are meant for older babies that can sit up. It is mainly a support that fits around your waist. Giving your child a wider platform to sit on than just your hip and helping you prevent leaning to one side.
Baby Slings & Wraps
Baby slings are becoming very popular. They mainly consist of a wraparound piece of fabric or cloth but allow baby to be supported very close to you and also pack away to almost nothing for easy storage.
Before you choose we always advise trying a few different ones out. There is also no better review then asking friends and family which ones they use. There is sure to be a mixture of different baby carriers in use amongst parents at local baby, child or mothers meetings & schools etc.
There is also plenty of advice online on sites like ours online as well as in parenting magazines and books.
Also it is very important to read the safety advice that comes with any product that you buy.
