We are firm believers in babywearing as a great way to nurture that parental bond. It is the next best thing to being in the womb and you can continue to carry them until well into the toddler years with the right carrier (and the strength to go with it).
The variation in baby carrier styles, and designs allows you to match the type of support with the developmental stage your baby is up to. There are also plenty of versatile designs that can see you all the way through from birth until they are just too darn big to carry anymore.
Our goal here is to provide information that is relevant to you, so that you can buy well, and buy once!
When I started my babywearing journey I always had five or six of these in the closet – it is expensive and frustrating – so we want to save you the legwork and expense involve in finding what suits you best.
