How to choose the right baby carrier for you and your family

Navigating your way through the endless options of baby carriers on the market is daunting. Babywearing has many benefits especially in a post covid world allowing you to keep baby safe and control what and who they come into contact with.

Why Babywearing may suit your family:

  • Allows you to carry out tasks while keeping baby close
  • You get a boost of oxytocin (the love hormone) when you have physical contact with your baby, which promotes bonding and can help improve postpartum depression and anxiety.
  • You can skip lugging a pram in and out of the boot or on public transport. Excellent for grocery shopping to avoid the germ filled baby bassinets on trolleys!
  • Easy to navigate through crowds using a baby carrier than pushing a pram or stroller plus a spare hand to hold the toddlers or older kids hands
  • Research shows that babies who are carried three hours a day cry 43% less overall and 54% less during the evening
  • Great exercise!

Here is our list of what to consider when deciding what carrier suits you and your family:

  • How old is your baby?
  • What carry options do you require?
  • Will you be sharing use of the carrier with your partner?
  • Budget
