When choosing a new baby carrier, many parents are looking for a carrier that fits from birth to the end of the babywearing time. Many baby carriers often offer infant inserts to bridge the time until your baby will fully fit into the carrier without support. While these options may work for some babies, we often find that the fit is rather poor and often don't work with our hot summers. We often encourage parents to look into newborn baby carrier options until their baby fits into a regular sized baby carrier. We have listed some of our most popular brands with attributes to consider:
Moby Wrap: cuddly soft fabric, perfect for newborns born from early fall to mid spring, can be hot in the summer months, supports skin to skin babywearing, requires a little bit of practise, best suited for babies 0-4 months.
Sakura Bloom: flowy breathable fabric, lightweight and small (fits easily into a diaper bag), great for newborn babies but not limited to, perfect for babies born from early spring to fall, requires a little bit of practise, might not fit everyone.
Beco Gemini: fits most 3 weeks old comfortably, a great newborn options if you find wraps and slings too finicky, offers a "facing out" position, can be warm in the summer, offers crossed straps, is limited to 35 lbs.
Tula Carrier: large, often requires an infant insert past the 15 lbs mark, has the biggest size range in terms of fit for the parents, can be warm in the summer if infant insert is still required, fits tall babies very well, polstered straps are very comfortable.
Manduca: integrated infant insert that is not padded - less heat, infant pouch can be finicky, great for babies born all year around, straps can be crossed, panel can be extended for growing baby.
Toddler carriers: should be re-named pre-school carriers, starts to fit most babies that fit into 2T pants, great for families that are very active, cannot be used with infant insert, supports older kids very well.
