Quite simply, the best baby carriers, baby wraps and baby slings for your newborn, baby, toddler or child. Safe, comfortable, ergonomic and beautiful carriers to suit you and your family that keep your baby in the best possible 'M' shaped position - close enough to kiss.

More and more people are embracing baby carriers to make life with little ones more convenient and enjoyable. The right kind of baby carrier is essential for new parents. A high-quality baby carrier will always ensure comfort and safety for both parent and child, no matter the activity. Whether you are hiking in the mountains, taking a stroll, nipping to the shops, or hanging out in the house: you can always rely on your baby carrier!

A baby carrier or baby sling satisfies your baby's need for safety and comfort, but also for closeness, touch, bonding and togetherness. Your baby will also learn to regulate their emotions and their body's reactions through contact with your emotions and your body.

Using a baby carrier in everyday life provides complete comfort for both you and your baby whilst allow you to keep your hands free, allowing you to get stuff done, or go places that would ordinarily be inaccessible to a buggy (think forest trails or beach paths).

What Type of Baby Carrier is Right for Me?

There is a variety of different types and models of baby carriers to choose from, depending on how you intend to use them. There are different styles to suit the different demands of any parent, or the age of your baby or toddler, and each have their own characteristics and advantages for every type of parenting situation. The most important types of baby carriers and their individual qualities are summarised for you here:

  • Buckle Carriers
    Probably one of the most popular styles of baby carrier. The basic design of a buckle carrier is a front panel, a padded waist strap and two padded shoulder straps, all secured with buckles, all of which are adjustable to achieve a comfortable fit, even between wearers. Buckle carriers are supportive and baby can be worn on the front or back, sometimes on the hip too. They're probably the most popular design of carriers on account of how easy they are to use. Some can be used from newborn some can be used from 3-4 months upwards. With some designs, the shoulder straps can cross on the back to provide extra support. Whilst the basic premise of each carrier from different manufacturers remains the same, they come in lots of different styles, fabrics and colours, so you'll find a design or colour you'll like. Some like those from well-known brands such as BabyBjörn and Ergobaby produce premium baby carriers in either cotton or synthetic fabrics. Quite the trend these days is for ultra breathable or mesh baby carriers that help keep you and baby cool. Buckle carriers often allow for forward facing options - such as the Ergobaby Omni and the BabyBjörn Harmony. Others such as the LennyLight from LennyLamb are made from woven wrap fabrics and offer a lovely, soft, secure place for your little one. Some are suitable from birth and still others are designed for toddlers and preschoolers. Bottom line - there's a buckle carrier for every age of baby.

  • Stretchy Wraps
    Stretchy wraps comprise one long piece of fabric, akin to t-shirt fabric around 5m in length, which is wrapped around your body and keep your little one secure, snug and close - the best place to be after nine months in utero! Stretchy wraps are usually pre-tied. In other words, you tie it around you before tucking baby in. The main advantage to this is that you can tie it on in the morning, and if you want to, keep it on all day, popping baby in and out as necessary - you can also have it tied before you go out. In this way, stretchy wraps can be an amazingly helpful tool in those first challenging and precious few weeks. There are no buckles, rings or fasteners, just soft jersey fabric. In general, most stretchy wraps are used for front carrying only, with baby being placed in an upright, tummy-to-tummy position. One size fits most wearers and stretchy wraps can be very comfortable and supportive for both wearer and baby, particularly as they are so soft. They're a great carrying option for newborns up to 1 year. We stock only the best stretchy wraps with 2-way stretch, including those from Coracor and Boba.
  • Ring Slings
    Ring slings are a wonderfully light way to carry your baby. Ring slings are fuss-free, are less bulky and have less fabric than other types of baby carriers and slings. They are great for newborns, but equally great for toddlers too. They can be adjusted before popping baby in, as needed. You can also have it adjusted before you go out, such as to the shops, the park, or in the car. In this way, ring slings can be an amazingly helpful tool in those first challenging and precious few weeks of parenthood, and indeed when out and about with a toddler - you know, who wants to walk for a bit, and then be carried for a while, but then wants back down to walk again! A ring sling can be really helpful in such situations with a toddler as it not only provides them somewhere to rest their legs, but also to snuggle into you and feel safe - particularly helpful in new or overwhelming places, such as airports. They fold up really small and don't take up a lot of space, so they're really handy to take with you on days out and on holidays. They're usually made from 100% cotton, so can be popped in the machine if necessary; they'll also soften up with use.
  • Woven Wraps
    Woven wraps are similar to stretchy wraps in that they comprise one long piece of fabric with no buckles, fasteners or rings. But they can be tied in different ways for different carries. They differ from stretchy wraps in that woven wrap fabric is far more supportive. Woven wraps have a slight diagonal stretch, making them firmer than stretchy wraps - supportive enough to hold a heavy toddler. As such a woven wrap sling can work for all sizes and ages, from one-week old until your child grows out of being carried, i.e. when they're a toddler. In this way, they are really economical. Plus, your child can use the wrap as a plaything when you're done using it for babywearing, and it can even be handed down to the next generation - woven wraps tend to be heirloom quality. You can adjust the wrap to carry your baby in different ways as they grow and develop. Once you wrap it around, the sling holds your baby safely and securely in a way that promotes their development, is respectful to baby’s physiology and is healthy for their hips. We've been long-time retailers of famous brands such as Didymos, who have been making woven wraps for over 50 years.
  • Meh Dais
    The basic design of a meh dai is a main panel with two pairs of straps. One pair ties ties around the waist, securing with a knot, and the other pair, sits on the shoulders and crosses on the wearers back then around baby, distributing the weight evenly across the shoulders, back and hips. They have a buckle carrier shape, but are made from woven wrap fabrics. It is very simple in design, yet very supportive in style. There are no buckles, or rings, just fabric, and sometimes padding in the shoulder and waist straps for extra support. They can be used for front, hip and back carries, and most can be used from newborn through to toddlerhood and beyond. They are a wonderful option if you'd like a little more structure for ease of use, but want something mouldable, soft and wrap-like.
  • Half Buckle Carriers
    Halfway between a full buckle carrier and a meh dai carrier, a half buckle carrier offers the ease of a clip buckle at the waist, with the adjustability of long shoulder straps for a truly snug fit, without the reaching for back or side clips. They're good for front, hip and back carrying, and most are suitable from newborn. They're a wonderful option if you'd like a little more structure for ease of use, but want something mouldable, soft and wrap-like. There are lots of variations between the brands - some have wrap-strap shoulders, some have padded shoulder straps and waist straps, but all offer that woven wrap softness for your baby, but make it a bit easier to use for you.

Which is the Best Baby Carrier?

Ultimately, the best baby sling carrier for you is one that your little one and you both find comfortable, one that will work for you and your family. There are a few things to take into account though, and a few things to think about. You can help to narrow your choice down by checking out our latest selection of the Best Baby Carriers for 2024.
