Baby Carriers, Slings & Wraps: The Basics of Baby-wearing & How to Choose the Right One! by Carrie Wells
Baby-wearing is beneficial for young children and their caregivers. By nature, babies want to be near their parents. Here are some good things to know about baby-wearing:
- Unlike strollers that distance yourself from your child, baby carriers keep your baby close.
- When baby-wearing, children should always face their parents, either on the front, hip or back.
- There are many baby-wearing options, including soft-structured carriers, slings, mei tais and wraps.
- Each carrier offers different features, like the ability to carry heavier children, the ability to breastfeed while wearing, and allowing different positions.
You can research all your different options online and find the right carrier for you!
