Choose The Right Carrier For You

Babywearing is such an amazing tool for parents and caregivers.  It provides an opportunity for bonding as well as a chance for parents to get things done around the house.

When it comes to choosing a carrier, the sea of options can be overwhelming and what works for some may not be the favorite of others.  To help narrow the choices I’ve put together a spreadsheet with basic overviews of various carriers, as well as a sheet dedicated for reviews!

I’ve already gathered a few reviews to get started, but the magic comes from you, the readers!  The second sheet of this spreadsheet is where you can add your opinions on the carriers that you have tried.

I hope that you find this spreadsheet handy and I thank all of you that take the time to add your opinions, they will be so very valuable to parents looking for just the right carrier!

Speaking of carriers, keep your eyes out for a special review coming up.  It’s going to be a lot of fun!

I think this is great! I bought about 5 different products before I found the one for me. I like the Ergo now that my baby is around 20 pounds! Kudos to you!

Manduca does have a sleeping hood, you have it down as a no when it should be yes.

Thanks for this. I am just getting interested in babywearing but didn’t know the difference between everything

I have an ergo and I love it! I could never get used to the moby wrap and my baby hated it so I bought and infant insert for my ergo and that worked really well.

I’m like Rachel N – could never get used to the Moby. I think it’s because the little man was an over-10-pounder when he was born; we both just need more support. Thanks so much for this guide! Hoping to get an Ergo; sounds like it’ll be the best for us!

Thank you for the spreadsheet. This would be great for especially new babywearers. I personally like different baby carriers for different ages. I loves my moby once I got the hang of it and probably wore my little one in it until he was about 5 months old. We then switched to the Boba and love it. I love it for back carrying now since he is almost 2

Thanks so much for the useful excel. This list way more baby carriers than I knew existed. Thanks for sharing!
