What a baby carrier is, why you might use one, and how to buy the perfect one for you and your baby.
A baby carrier is a basically a comfy “pouch-on-a-harness” arrangement that lets you carry your baby against the front of you body or on your back, leaving your hands free.
You may decide that owing to lifestyle, space or storage constraints, budget or personal preference that you’d like to use a baby carrier instead of a buggy as your sole means of baby transport. Or you could find a carrier is an additional piece of kit for times when it’s not convenient to take a buggy somewhere, or for when they want that extra-special feeling of holding their baby close.
In addition to baby carriers, there are baby slings. Slings typically have less structure than a baby carrier. If you want to know more, check out our buyer’s guide to slings.
