Four of our Favourite Wraps and Carriers for Baby Wearing

image alt

Life changes dramatically when you have a baby – but it doesn’t stop entirely. Soaking up every second of time with your bub is priority #1, but sometimes you might want to prepare a meal, get out of the house, or just head out for a bit of sunshine.

Some babies are more than happy to go with flow and chill out in a pram or another safe spot, but others much prefer to stay close to their favourite humans.  

Wearing your baby in a baby carrier or baby wrap lets your baby (or toddler!) stay close to you as you go about your day. They will hear your heartbeat, feel your warmth, and appreciate the movement as you move about. Being in contact with you helps them feel safe. And feeling safe means their brains are free to focus on learning about the world around them.  

Of course, every baby is unique, and not every bub enjoys being in a carrier. This doesn’t mean they won’t feel safe – it simply means they are comfortable experiencing life in a different way.  

If your baby is one who does enjoy being carried though, carriers and wraps are extremely handy to pop on at the shops, before a walk, or just while you’re at home needing some hands-free time.  

What is the difference between a baby wrap and a baby carrier?  

A baby carrier is structured and might have straps, buckles, padding, or even convenient pockets for your phone, keys or other bits and pieces. Depending on the style of carrier, you might be able to use them from birth through to older baby or toddlerhood – check the manual of each carrier to see the weight range it’s suitable for.  

Baby wraps are typically one long piece of fabric that you weave around your body and tie off to secure. They are lightweight, and because you do them up each time you wear them, you get the right fit for you and your baby with minimal fuss.  

Using baby wraps and carriers safely 

Having your baby right on your body is amazing for supervision, but there are a few safety aspects to know about before you head out to the shops with your little one.  

TICKS is a handy acronym to help you remember the most important points when baby wearing. It stands for:  

  • Tight 
  • In view at all times 
  • Close enough to kiss 
  • Keep their chin off their chest 
  • Supported back. 

To learn more about this, Raising Children has a detailed page on baby wearing safely where they go into depth on TICKS and provide extra info around safety.
