Which Carrier Type Suits Your Family Best?

Thinking about giving babywearing a try? Carriers are not only great for outdoor use, you can use them to carry your baby around the home too, to help them remain settled whilst keeping your hands free to get jobs done. Today, bestselling baby carrier brand Ergobaby are here to talk you through the different types of carriers they offer, to help you find the ideal one to suit your family's needs. 



BEST FOR: First timers. If this is your first baby or you’re not sure if babywearing is for you then a wrap is a great, inexpensive way to dip your toe in the babywearing water.


NOT QUITE RIGHT FOR: Anyone who thinks they’d prefer the set structure of a carrier over tying a wrap.


TRY THIS: The award-winning, ergonomically designed Ergobaby Aura Baby Wrap is suitable from newborn (3.6kg –11.3kg) and has a handy guiding edge, allowing easy wrapping and an integrated carrying pouch. Made from eucalyptus and acacia, the lightweight and breathable fabric is soft on your baby’s skin and is ‘one-size-fits-most’, ensuring comfort every step of the way for parents and babies alike.

Perfect for snuggling at home, or convenient for quick errands, the Ergobaby Embrace is renegotiating the question of ‘wrap or carrier?’ with its distinctive design, helping both parents and babies alike adjust to life together.
