Babies love to be held. While it may not always be possible to hold your baby close, there are a variety of carriers designed to help you in carrying your baby hands free. These are also great for discrete nursing. These also make great baby shower presents!
The Ergo is an amazing baby carrier. It provides support for your back and uses your hips to do that. The baby is happy and easily goes into the Ergo. Many moms say it's the most comfortable baby carrier they've ever tried. That said, it does require a newborn insert for a smaller baby, but not for older babies.
The Mei Tai Baby Carrier is a great baby carrier for infants to toddlers. The flexibility is really amazing making it a front pouch or a back carrier.
3. Moby Wrap
This wrap has more fabric and goes over both shoulders, rather than just one. This allows for better distribution of your baby's weight. The length of fabric can hold from preemie to 45 lbs. When not being used as a wrap it can also be used as a blanket, nursing cover or pillow.
4. Maya Wrap
A great sling with several sizes and colors for men and women. This sling offers a built drape via the tail for nursing. It does not have the padding found in other slings.
6. Cuddly Wrap
The Cuddly Wrap is a one size fits all wrap that is used to place the baby in a centered position (front or back). The material is soft, organic cotton.
This soft sided sling is an excellent way to carry baby. Many moms like this carrier because it is a lot less bulky than any of the other slings and carriers available.
