There's no place your baby would rather be than snuggled in your arms. It's one of the most rewarding feelings in the world, but sometimes, it can be challenging when you're trying to get things done. A great way to keep baby close but free yourself for household chores, for instance, is to use a baby carrier.
There are many carrier options to help parents keep their baby close while having a free set of hands. These are some of our top picks.
The Moby Wrap is a favorite for many parents, especially when their babies are small and love to snuggle right up against you. It has a bit of a learning curve, but once you learn how to tie it, you'll love how cozy your baby feels on your chest. The colors are stylish and the fabric keeps baby covered and protected.
Another buckle-free option is the Infantino EcoSash Carrier. This style allows parents to easily adjust the ties as their baby grows, so they can carry their baby from 8 to 35 pounds. There's a built-in headrest while baby is on the smaller side and can use a little extra head support, and it easily folds down and tucks away as baby grows.
Once baby gets a little older parents will notice she'll want to look around and see the world she's a part of. The Baby Bjorn Carrier One is another choice for parents who want an inward or forward-facing option while giving the flexibility of being used as a backpack carrier when the baby gets older. The design makes it easy to get baby in and out of the carrier from the front and the back.
Parents of twins don't have to be left out. The Stuff 4 Multiples Versatile Twin Carrier lets parents carry one or both babies at the same time front to back or side to side.
Last but not least, another mom-favorite is the Catbird Baby Pikkolo Soft Structured Baby Carrier. It's a comfortable all-in-one carrier that does it all, and holds babies from the newborn stage all the way up to toddlerhood. It supports in a natural ergonomic seated position at first, and as they grow they can enjoy the carrier in a backpack position.
No matter what you choose, your baby will love being close to you and you'll appreciate balancing quality time with getting things done!
