A baby carrier is extremely convenient and useful for effortlessly carrying your baby. But did you know there's more than one style? At buybuy BABY, we have a wide selection of baby carriers for you to choose from, so you can make sure to choose one that fits you and your baby just right. It should be both secure and comfortable enough for your body type and your baby's size.
One type is the baby wrap carrier. It is the most traditional and common. The caution is that it is not the easiest one to use, especially for beginners. The way to use it is to wrap a long piece of fabric around the baby and your body, with the key being how you tie the loose ends for a snug, secure fit for carrying. Some wrap-style carriers, which are also called stretchy wraps, have elastic fabric such as knit jersey or cotton jersey. They are great for beginners and newborn babies because you wrap the fabric first around you, then around your baby. Others are called woven wraps, and they are made from linen, cotton, wool, or hemp. They are sturdier and best used for toddlers, older children, and carrying your baby on your back.
The baby sling carrier is another type. Also called a ring sling, it has a long piece of fabric around 2 meters long with two rings at one end. To tie it, you need to thread the free end through a ring and then tuck it under the other ring. It's adjustable, and the baby's weight stops the rings from getting loose. This type allows you to carry your baby in front, either on your chest or on your hip. The material, usually cotton or linen, is woven. There are other types of carriers as well, and we offer front and hip, sling and wrap, backpack and frame carriers to offer you the most versatile selection. The pouch carrier has a long piece of fabric that acts like a sash from one shoulder to the opposite hip. The buckle carrier has padded shoulder straps and a waist with a pouch for the baby. It is typically most suitable for 4-to-5-month-old babies, although some designs are suitable for newborns. The backpack carrier is for babies who can sit without help and have good neck control, while the frame carrier has a pouch within a sturdy frame to support your baby sitting upright.
