So you’re probably thinking, “okay, how does babywearing help you and which baby carrier do you prefer?! ”

Well, you’re in luck, because I’m going to spill all the babywearing beans today!

Babywearing Made Parenting Easier

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been afraid to babywear. Probably because I knew nothing about it. Plus, 10 years ago, babywearing wasn’t so mainstream as it is now.

After I gave birth to Abel, I tried babywearing him with a ring sling. I could NEVER figure it out and gave up rather quickly.

Now with Isaiah, I’m finally comfortable with babywearing and “wear” him most of the day. With that being said,  I tend to rotate through three different carriers.

How to Select the Right Baby Carrier For You

Wraps vs Ring Slings vs Soft Buckle Carriers

As a consumer, I purchase items that are tailored to my individual needs. Purchasing multiple carriers can be pricey, so you have to make sure that you do your research!

  1. What will you be using it for?
  2. How long do you want to wear your baby?
  3. Previous injuries? This one is extremely important!
  4. What do you prefer?

From soothing a newborn to hiking up a trail, make sure you select a carrier that fits your every lifestyle.

Babywearing has completely changed my mindset of newborns. If I see you, and you have a newborn, I’m pulling out my wrap, sling, ergo to wear them. Let it be known!
