My first baby loved being in baby carriers and I loved baby carriers to support attachment while still being hands free. Baby Carriers are also an easier option for certain outings when you don't necessarily want to pull the stroller out. With baby number two on the way I have been researching baby carriers to pick out a new wrap style one for around the house and a structured carrier for outings.
Ergobaby Carrier, 360 coolmesh caught my attention as a top baby carrier because baby can use from newborn, be carried in and out both on your front and on your back! It has thick comfortable straps and waist support to fit both parents. Baby carrier comes in many colours and is long lasting holding a baby 7-45lb.
Beco Gemini Baby Carrier is another comparable baby carrier as it also has the ability to carry baby in four different positions and holds a baby 7-35lb. The straps are comfortable with lots of padding and a waist strap to distribute weight evenly.
Babybjorn Baby Carrier I found intriguing as a more compact option for a structured carrier. This option is more suitable for babies under one year as it's weight limits are 7-24lbs. I can see this carrier being possibly more comfortable for a newborn then the larger baby carriers and more comfortable to wear around the house.
Boba Wrap Baby Carrier is perfect for baby carrying around the house especially for those first 4 months. Baby wraps are as soft and comfortable as a t-shirt and promote bonding. The wrap is a custom fit to both you and your baby and hugs them tight.
Moby Wrap Baby Carrier is an exact comparable to the wrap above and ties comfortably around your body. The Moby wrap can be used from birth and is the perfect hands free baby carrier for the fourth trimester. Baby wraps are great for babies who love to be held, can sooth a fussy baby and help with reflux.
Baby K'tan Original Baby Wrap is a great option if you find the long fabric wraps intimidating to tie on as this one comes in two pieces to easily pull on. This baby carrier is super soft and comfortable and easy to throw in your diaper bag to bring on the go.
