1. Features: Most important purchase criteria for baby carriers

1.1 Types

There are different types of baby carriers and wraps. When choosing this, you should consider your child's size and the variety of activities for which you will be using the baby carrier or wrap. Here are the characteristics of the main types.

  • Front: The front baby carriers are similar to the traditional wraps with a modern twist. Your baby is like 'hanging' in a tummy tuck. The biggest advantage of this type of carrier is that you can keep an eye on your child at all times. Also, your child hangs in the best position.

  • Back: Back carriers are similar to backpacks. These types are equipped with a frame and a built-in seat. The back carriers are often used for older children because they are better able to sit upright independently, and also, your back can take more weight than your front body. 

  • Sling: Baby slings are woven fabrics to be wrapped around your body and your baby so that the baby is close to your body. It doesn’t have any buckle, but it is tied securely, and you can try out any comfortable position for you and your baby.

  • Ring Sling refers to a web of woven fabric passed through two rings to make a sturdy seat for your child. All it needs is threading the material through the rings and then tighten the straps. Since a child’s weight is not distributed properly in this case, therefore, a ring sling is not recommended for parents with back problems.

  • Mei Tai: It is an ergonomic carrier resembling a woven wrap in terms of comfort and appearance. Unlike a wrap, it is a small piece of fabric and has a back with a button or clickable hip belt and always buttonable shoulder straps.

  • Ergonomic/Back Bag: It is similar to May Tai, but it is a more structured type of carrier with padded parts and straps that make the carrier more sturdy. Also, it is adjustable with buckles, so there is no need to learn techniques to carry your baby.

1.2 Ergonomics

A baby’s body is very different from an adult as the bones are still soft and flexible. Unfortunately, earlier, less was known about ergonomics, and baby carriers were manufactured in which the baby sat in an upright position. This was very taxing on both the back and the hips. Manufacturing of the same hasn’t stopped yet. However, there are also many ergonomic baby carriers.

An ergonomic baby carrier is when a baby is a little “lumped together” with a round back. In addition, the knees are just above the hips. The baby’s body forms a kind of M shape or a frog pose. There is no chance that the baby will develop hip deformities or abnormalities in the upper legs in this position.

1.3 Safety

Safety is of prime importance here.

You must consider that how is the stitching along the necessary seams, and where are the buckles and zippers attached? 
What is the zipper’s quality?
What quality do the clips, fasteners, adjustment sliders, loops and velcro have?
Can these components stand the test of time, with timely wear & tear and repeated adjustment?

Safety is also about the baby’s position, the fabric’s breathability and supporting the baby’s head, back, knee, and neck.

1.4 Material

Your child might spend quite some time in a carrier. Therefore, the product needs to be comfortable in every aspect, including fabric. For example, for a backpack, a soft filling is preferred in which your baby feels protected, nurtured, relaxes easily and fall asleep quickly.

The fabric must feel light and cool on hot days. Summer calls for cotton-elastane wraps because they allow the material to breathe, and the fabric is stretchable making it easier to tie. At the same time, the outside must be able to withstand a beating and raindrops.

1.5 Closing Method

Different brands use different closures for the baby carrier. Some are height-adjustable with buckles and width-adjustable with press studs. You can also close it over your shoulders using click buckles. Then there are baby carriers with only buckles or press studs. Furthermore, baby carriers with Velcro closure or zipper are also available. Which method you choose depends on your own preference.

1.6 Comfort For Yourself

The baby carrier not just be comfortable for your baby but you as well. To make the right choice, we suggest trying on different carriers types. You can borrow them from someone for a while or try them at a store. If you and your partner both are going to wear, it is essential to come and fit together because what is comfortable for you might not be equally suitable for your partner.

If you like slings and want the comfort of a carrier, choose a carrier made of a double layer of sling fabric. This will give you the cosy feeling of cloth and at the same time comfort of a carrier. Some people choose a sturdy and robust carrier with thick padded shoulder straps and extra support in the back.

1.7 Usability

As they say, don’t judge a book by its cover. Some carriers appear to be great, feels best to buy, are super comfortable and reliable, but can be a total pain to put on, take off or adjust. Carriers have developed over the years from being non-ergonomic to being super comfortable. However, some are still relatively poor in this regard. 

We think you can never go wrong when it comes to a baby carrier if you know your purpose in buying it. So, be sure what you want to make of it. If you need one for home or breastfeeding, choose a sling or ring sling. The baby carriers or backpacks should be preferred for a walk with your little one. Specialised baby carriers, such as mountain backpacks, are perfect for those who want to go hiking in the mountains with their baby.

Usability also includes user-friendliness. For example, some carriers can be folded to a small size and comes in handy while travelling.

1.8 Size and Age of Baby

A baby carrier must fit nicely for your baby. Age is somewhat relative here. However, most of the carriers can be used from birth to infancy, sometimes well into toddlerhood. There are also baby carriers that are specially designed for young babies. Usually, a baby carrier can take up to 20 kg weight and is suitable for a baby as old as five years.

Note: Experts do not suggest a baby carrier for babies up to 4 months. For them, baby slings are preferred to hold their head and neck upright.

1.9 Washability

The washability is yet another essential and obvious consideration for the baby carriers because it is used for a longer duration. Many loose fabric options, such as ring slings and wraps, can be easily washed using a washer and dryer. Whereas most soft structure careers that are more popular in the market these days are hand washable. However, structured carriers have more seams, pockets, padding, etc., making it difficult to wash them thoroughly.

1.10 Seat Width

For choosing a baby carrier, it is imperative to identify where the position of the baby legs will lie. If the baby’s legs keep dangling straight down, it will cause a certain level of discomfort and eventually lead to pain. Ideally, the baby’s thighs should be spread around the wearer’s torso and supported to the knee joint. A wider seat facilitates the same.

1.11 Wide Straps

The carrier strap width is also an important consideration to keep in mind when buying a baby carrier. Small and fewer straps simply mean less comfort. Go for a baby carrier with at least a shoulder and waist strap to enjoy maximum comfort and convenience.

1.12 Support

Carrying a baby for a long time is a herculean task, and it is not always comfortable for the baby as well. Due to this reason, most carrier pads have sufficient padding offering optimum comfort to the baby, and even some ring sling models include a shoulder pad. You should always look for these comfort-related amenities to make the best use of the carrier.

1.13 Versatility

There was a time when a baby carrier could only support a single carrying position, and you needed separate carriers for babies, toddlers, large children and hiking. TToday’scarriers are versatile enough to support multiple carrying positions as a baby grows. A primary carrier has two positions, usually facing forward and backwards. At the high end, carriers have six positions, including rear-facing newborn (fetal tuck), rear-facing baby (legs out), forward-facing toddler, rear-facing toddler, hip carrier and back carrier (walking carrier).

  • Rain hood

2.2 Which type of baby carrier offers maximum versatility?

2.3 Which baby carrier is best for two years old?

Ergonomic/back bags or baby backpacks and back carriers are best for two years old. The reason behind this is that your child is old enough to hold up his or her head. Moreover, he or she must be having a weight that might be hard for you to carry on your chest.

3. FAQ: Learn more about the details

3.1 What is a baby carrier?

Baby carriers, as the name suggests, are designed to carry babies with you comfortably. It has been used for many years, and today it is available in different types and sizes. Unlike a stroller, a baby carrier efficiently transports your baby in a safe and cosy way. With this, you do not have to push your way through a busy street by car, which can be very annoying. On the other hand, a sling, a backpack or a “Mei Tai” take up less space and are very light.

3.2 Which is better between a baby carrier and a pram?

Once the parents start using one of them (carrier or pram), the other goes for a toss, perhaps because both the products are equally great to get used to. Interestingly, in some cases, babies will make this choice themself. Many children find a baby carrier most comfortable. Also, you will notice that the baby cannot be comforted in the pram the way he or she can be relaxed while being carried. Some babies show their happiness when they are in the pram instead of the carrier.

3.3 What is the difference between a baby carrier and a sling?

Both a sling or a baby carrier are great options to carry your baby. A sling is a long cloth that is wrapped around your body. It distributes the weight very well over your body and offers comfort to the child when tied properly. Moreover, it is lighter than a baby carrier. On the other hand, a baby carrier is easier to use because it is pre-shaped. There is no fuss of tying it.

All in all, the choice between a baby carrier and sling is ultimately often a matter of personal preference.

All in all, the choice between a baby carrier and sling is ultimately often a matter of personal preference. 

3.4 Until what age can a baby carrier be used?

There is no single answer to this because the usage of a carrier depends on several factors. For starters, material the baby carrier matters. Next is the weight-bearing capacity of the baby carrier. Maximum weight is often stated with the baby carrier. However, this does not say anything about the age of a child. Irrespective of the carrier’s capacity, you must also be able to carry the weight yourself. A small baby is lightweight to carry him or her for a more extended period, but what about older children? They are heavy, and that’s why many parents stop using the baby carrier around the age of 3-4.

3.5 Why is it good to carry my child in a baby carrier?

A baby carrier is efficient for breastfeeding and carrying your child anywhere (including hiking). It offers you a perfect feeding position, especially when you are outdoors. Baby carriers with a hood give you more privacy when breastfeeding.

A carrier offers extra protection to your baby, especially during the first months after birth. The ergonomic posture, also called frog posture, is similar to the pose in the womb. A baby carrier is also about the proximity of the parents with the baby, which strengthens their bond. The warmth of your body, your breathing and your heartbeat relaxes your newborn. 

Moreover, you are a lot more agile while using a baby carrier than with a pram and the baby’s body is well supported.

3.7 Can I use a baby carrier for twins?

Yes, you can use a baby carrier for twins as well. There are twin carriers available in the market for your twins. You can also choose a combination of two separate baby carriers. However, this has the disadvantage of sitting with a double number of shoulder and hip straps.

3.8 Can I use a baby carrier as a carrier for my dog?

A dog is hard to fit in a baby carrier. So, if you want a carrier for your dog, choose a dog bag. Or get a sling as it is customisable, and you can tie it to size for your dog.

3.9 How do I recognise ergonomic baby carriers?

3.10 Are baby carriers safe?

With proper use and the correct way of fastening, the baby carrier will surely keep your little one safe. Below are a few quick tips for you to carry your baby in the safest way possible.

  • Baby’s airways should always be clear, i.e. his or her face must be visible at all times. Newborns cannot hold their heads up and could therefore suffocate without you even noticing it. Check from time to time that the baby’s breathing is not obstructed.

  • Pay attention to the position of the baby’s hips. The baby’s legs should go sideways with the hips spread. If the legs hang down or stay together for a long time, your child is at risk of dysplasia.

  • While using a fabric carrier, practice fastening to keep the carrier tight and save your child from being endangered. Practice with a stuffed animal or a bag of flour.
