Baby carriers are a great way to bond with your infant while keeping your hands free for everyday tasks. This buying guide covers the basic styles of carriers, the main types of positions, popular materials, and accessories to shelter baby from sun and rain.
The standard front carrier is a popular choice that is structured for ergonomic support and allows your infant to stay close and within your view. Backpack carriers work great for families that love the outdoors as well as older infants who want a good view of the world around them. Wraps and slings are perfect for the smallest infants and allow you to breastfeed and keep your newborn nestled close.
