At Parenting By Nature we have personally tested and used extensively each of the baby carriers offered in our store. We don’t sell anything we can’t wholeheartedly endorse or recommend.
There are many different styles of baby carriers available. Our selection includes some of the most popular and comfortable baby carriers on the market today. Within our baby carrier department you are sure to find a baby carrier or baby sling to match your experience, dedication + style.
Beyond baby carrier basics for tiny babies, you will want to learn how to wear a bigger baby or a toddler. Some baby carriers are only comfortable until your baby reaches about 15-20 lbs - as early as 4-6 months for big babies! At this time, many parents give up on carrying their baby, assuming the baby has just gotten to be too big for a carrier. This is the time to readjust and know that you can learn to carry a bigger child. Babywearing does not need to be cumbersome or uncomfortable. In fact, with the right baby carrier most parents find it to be liberating and freeing well through the toddler years.
