Best Baby Carriers for Newborns

A baby carrier is ideal for moms or dads to bond with their baby. Carriers are wonderful to have for when you need to run errands or if you are going to a big event where you will be walking all day. Baby Carriers help make it easier for you to have your hands free and yet still have your baby close to you.

There are many types of baby carriers. Finding the right one for what you need can be a little challenging. I have a list of different types and brands of newborn baby carriers for you to read about.

When Buying a Baby Carrier

When buying a carrier for your newborn make sure to understand the special need of babies of this age. The most suitable baby carriers for babies from newborn to 5 months would be the baby ring slings and baby wraps. We all know that newborns don’t have neck support.  That is why  these type of carriers will allow your baby to curl up in a cradle carry position with good neck support. I recommend asking your doctor if you have a preemie before using a baby carrier.

I love the fact that baby carriers give you the bonding time that you need with your baby. It’s especially good for fathers as they don’t get as much bonding time with their babies as mothers do. I hope that this helps you out on deciding which baby carrier will work for you.
