Admittedly, I’m a little obsessed with baby carriers. It’s the easiest way for me to get things done at home and when we are out and about. Charlotte REALLY likes to be held, and Bennett REALLY likes for me to play with him (and feed him, bathe him, pick up his room… you get the picture). Combine a fussy baby, an active toddler, and all of the things that I need to do throughout the day and I could have quite a disaster on my hands. But the solution is simple. Wear your baby. She thinks I’m holding her, and I still have two free hands to do whatever it is that I need to do.
There are a lot of baby wearing options out there, and you’ll have to go what works best for you. Personally, I like them all for different occasions but the carrier seems to be the most versatile. Recently I had the opportunity to try Bebamour’s Ergonomic Carrier which offers three different carrying positions.
It features soft, easy to wipe material, high quality buckles and straps, and double stitched reinforced connections so you’ll know your baby is safely attached at all times. The waist strap really helps to take the pressure off of the shoulder straps, which keeps my back and shoulders from hurting after use. The shoulder straps are adequately padded and all of the straps have generous length to them so they are adjustable to most body types.
Here’s why this carrier is so versatile… you can wear baby three different ways depending on their age and what activity you may be doing.
The first carry is front facing inwards. This is best for your littlest ones who might still need their heads supported. Or, if baby can hold it’s own head up, you can fold the support down so they can look around (see next picture of forward facing outward). Since Charlotte is still so little, this is the carry that we use (for now).
When baby gets a little older, you can do front facing outwards. With this carry, the head support is folded down so baby can see out. This one is great for curious little people who want in on all of the action.
Then, there’s the back facing inwards carry. I like this one for hiking, or another type of activity where you might not want something hanging in front of you. This carry is also best for older children because you’ll be unable to tend to them while they are behind you. You’ll also probably need help getting them in there with this carry.
One of the best things about the Bebamour Ergonomic Carrier is the instruction booklet that comes with the carrier. It gives you step by step instructions on how to do each carry, as well as the suggested ages and weights for use. I’m a huge fan of this carrier… I’m actually wearing it now!
