Baby Wearing Carriers and Retailers

BWmasterlist

I love teaching new moms (and dads) how to wear their baby! I wish I would of worn my daughter more but it was almost essential when my son came along. There are dozens and dozens of baby carrier brands that so many moms haven’t even heard of. Here is a master list I’ve been working on to expose you to more than the Bjorn. There are a few different types of carriers, wraps- woven and stretchy, ring slings, structured carriers, and mei tais. There are a few different other carriers like pods and different variations of the carriers mentioned above but these are the most used.

Abbreviations:

  • SSC- Soft Structure Carriers, these are buckled carriers
  • MT- Mei Tais
  • RS- Ring Sling
  • WC- Wrap Conversion (WCMT or WCRS Wrap conversion Mei Tais and Ring Sling)

How To Save Money When Buying A Carrier:

  • Check out the Babywearing International website to see if there’s a local chapter near you. An annual membership is very affordable and you can check out and borrow carriers a month at a time!
  • Follow the pages mentioned above to see if they ever run promotions or giveaway. I’ve actually won a carrier or two this way!
  • Borrow carriers from other local baby wearing moms to try before you buy to avoid buyer’s remorse.
  • Check out the many Facebook B/S/T (buy/sell/trade) or swap groups you can find some amazing deals for new and gently used carriers and list the ones you might not be using or loving anymore.

 

MY TOP PICKS!

  • Woven Wraps- So hard to pick because there are so many beautiful blends, colorways and prints. My top two so far are Didymos pfau (peacock prints) and Girasol’s Phoenix rainbow.
  • Stretchy Wraps- The Moby wrap seems to be a gateway carrier and you can find them gently used for an amazing price. The Baby K’tan is also a great option for those who are intimidated by wrapping.
  • Ring Slings-I really love a WCRS, a great place to look is Sleeping Baby Productions. Another great company is Sakura Bloom they have different blends of fabrics like silk and linen.
  • Mei Tais- The MT I use is discontinued but it has a wrap style shoulders similar to the  Didytai (Didymos) or Mysol (Girasol). Babyhawks are also popular mei tais.
  • SSCs- My top two are Lillebaby and Tula! Lillebaby’s are my go to suggestion because they are so versatile and easy to use. Tula’s are a little more pricey especially when you are drooling over a wrap conversion one so those are normally purchased by a more seasoned and committed baby wearer.
  • Retailers- I have purchased carriers from Zoolikins, PAXbaby, Lil’ Tulips and Mom’s Milk Boutique and they were are excellent! I’m sure this is the case with most retailers!

 

*I am sure there are some carriers and retailers I missed. If there’s one you’d like to suggest please leave a comment and I’ll add it!*
