Things to Consider When Finding the Right Carrier To Wear Your Baby

Melissa Moog

Ring slings, structured carriers like Ergos and Becos, wraps and mei-tai carriers can all be adjusted to fit the wearer snugly.

Pouch slings, on the other hand, must be sized correctly to the wearer when purchased, so make sure you get fit properly.

Try before you buy
Spend some time trying your (well-fed and well-rested) child in a number of carriers. Walk around the block, if possible, to get a feel for how it functions in the real world.

Don't Give Up
If your child doesnít seem to like the carrier, try again later when everyone is in a better mood.

Assess the situation
A one-shoulder sling isnít going to work for a three-hour excursion. For this kind of job, a two-shouldered carrier with hip support is called for.

Donít skimp on quality
A carrier will be something you use every day. Get the right one for the job - your baby and your back will thank you!
