Why Is The Tula Explore A Great Baby Carrier?
The baby seat area narrows across the width and height for younger babies and adjusts with them as they grow. The Explore can also be used in the forward-facing position. Note thought that before beginning to use the Tula Explore Carrier in the facing out position, your baby should have head and neck control and their chin should clear the top of the panel when facing out. We also suggests a weight range for the facing out position of 13-22lb for shorter intervals of time for optimal comfort. Watch baby for signs of sleepiness or over-stimulation. Baby should not sleep in the front carry facing out position.
We love the Tula Explore as it comes in a gorgeous range of beautiful prints that cover the main panel, the waist band and the hood. So you're more likely to find a design that really suits your style, which in turn means you're much more likely to enjoy babywearing!
It is recommended by our expert babywearing consultants - if you want an ergonomic baby carrier to use from birth, with the option of world-facing positioning, then the Tula Explore is a superb option for you.
It's Tula's first carrier that allows you to use it in an ergonomic front facing position. It offers all the features you and baby need - variable width settings for use from newborn to toddler, adjustable head support, and multiple carry positions including forward-facing and back carry.

How Easy Is It To Use The Tula Explore?
The Tula Explore is a buckle carrier, and of all the different types of baby carriers, buckle carriers are amongst the easiest to use and most popular, and with good reason: they are relatively easy to use and learn, they tend to be gender neutral, they are highly adjustable and
they can easily be used by wearers of different builds and sizes.
The fact that buckle carriers are adjustable means that different care givers can use the same carrier - perhaps a petite mum, and a large-build dad, meaning that babywearing can be easily shared and enjoyed by both parents. Their ease of use means that Dads are more likely to 'take' to babywearing - guys are familiar with straps and buckles and are less likely to feel overwhelmed when putting baby in, and taking baby out of the carrier, particularly if they are on their own.
With only two buckles to snap - one at the waist, and one at the back (or chest if baby is being carried on the back), baby can be picked up and snuggled in the carrier in seconds - particularly helpful if baby is grumpy or upset.
