Carriers Gear

By Grow Healthy. Grow Happy. The Whole Baby Guide

When you wear or carry your baby, either at home or when going out, he stays close and connected to you. Backpack carriers are not as cozy, but they are convenient and comfortable for hikes or long walks.

rebozo or baby slingModern baby slings, based on the traditional rebozo, from Mexico, come in different options. You can choose from wraps, ring slings, stationary over-the-shoulder carriers, backpack-style carriers, and many more. Wraps are usually made from stretchy fabric and are tied in a knot for a personalized fit. Ring slings (also called rebozos) are adjustable through a ring at the shoulder, allowing you to adjust the fabric up or down for a secure fit and comfort for you and your baby.

Slings allow for you to carry your baby in a variety of positions, such as semi-reclining, nursing position, front or rear facing, sideways Buddha, or kangaroo position. Most slings are adjustable, so they can be used by different family members. They are designed with shoulder padding for comfort and support. They have storage pockets to carry a few things with you on the go.
