10 baby carriers we love

Baby Carriers We Love Didyklick 1280x720
Advice & Tips

You’ve probably heard of the biggest brands (like Ergobaby and BabyBjörn), but there are tons of baby carrier options for different stages, body types and lifestyles.

1. One and done

The DidyKlick is a great all-purpose carrier from infancy to toddler years (no newborn insert needed). Because it combines the comfort of a woven wrap (the criss-cross X on your back) with the structure of a carrier that buckles at the waist, it’s considered a hybrid. It’s also easy to share with another caregiver, because you tie it to your body each time and don’t have to readjust any straps. $290, littlezenone.ca

2. Super easy to use

3. Best wrap for newborns

Instead of a Moby or Baby K’tan, choose a Beluga Baby wrap in breathable bamboo fabrics, made by a mom in Vancouver. $77-$80, belugababy.ca

4. For tiny infants with complex medical needs

This option also works for preemies who are too small to be in a carrier, but need skin-to-skin time. The Joeyband is a “sleep belt” that’s great for when you’re just lounging in bed or sitting on the couch. (But don’t wear it while you, the parent, are asleep.) It’s like wearing your bub inside a stretchy T-shirt. $70, joeyband.com

5. Best ring sling

This made-in-Canada linen carrier is lightweight and easy to pack in your stroller or diaper bag, and can work for newborns all the way to toddlers (8 to 35 pounds). Make sure the fabric is just capping your shoulder (not draped all the way to your elbow, and not bunched up near your neck). $125, heritagebaby.ca

6. New this year

Think of this as a pre-tied wrap. There’s no padding, so it won’t dig into your shoulders or hips. It also has a handy hood for naps on-the-go. U S$167, us.lennylamb.com
