Best Baby Carriers (2024) - The Only Buying Guide You'll Ever Need

Author: Corey Smith, PhD

Embark on a journey to find the perfect baby carrier with our comprehensive guide covering everything from baby wraps to hip carriers, dad shirts to baby slings. Explore various styles, discover celebrity favorites, and compare prices to make the best choice for you and your little one.

Baby Wraps

Baby wraps are perfect for minimalist moms who want a solution that's lightweight and soft.

Ideal for newborns up to around 6-9 months, baby wraps provide an intimate, womb-like environment for newborns, promoting bonding and soothing. They offer versatility in carrying positions and are adjustable to fit caregivers of all sizes.

However, the wrapping process can be intimidating and outright difficult.  Modern baby wraps come with clips at the waist and arm straps to remove this complexity. Out of all the baby wraps that we've reviewed Lalabu stands out for offering the most elegant cut, buttery soft material, and easiest wrapping.

Ring Slings

Ring slings provide a cozy, womb-like environment while keeping the baby close to the caregiver's body. As lightweight as the most basic baby wraps, they perfect for moms who like a boho vibe.

Dad Shirts & Maternity Shirts

Dad and maternity shirts offer a unique bonding experience for parents, allowing skin-to-skin contact and promoting closeness from birth. They provide hands-free carrying without the need for complex wrapping or adjusting. Lalabu soothe shirts (for moms) and dad shirts offer the most elegant cut and the softest material over any other similar product we have seen and can be used to hold newborns up to 15 lbs which is approximately a 4 month old baby.

Hybrid Carriers

Hybrid carriers combine the ease of use of structured carriers with the flexibility of wraps, offering multiple carrying positions and ergonomic support. Lillebaby's hybrid carriers can be used from birth to toddlerhood in 6 different positions and accommodate many different wearing positions.

Hip Carriers

In 2018, entrepreneur Tammy Rant introduced the world to TushBaby, a game-changing hip baby carrier she had invented. A hip carrier provides quick and easy access to the baby. It distributes weight evenly, reducing strain on the caregiver's back and shoulders. Following a triumphant Kickstarter campaign, TushBaby's trajectory skyrocketed. Today, five years later, the TushBaby stands as an award-winning carrier loved by celebrities and millions of moms. 

While other brands have followed in the Tushbaby's footsteps and developed their own version of the hip carrier, Tushbaby remains the leader in this category and offers its hip carrier in the largest variety of prints and materials.

Water Carriers

If you plan to spend time by the pool with your baby, you should consider the Aquaroo baby carrier, the very first waterproof carrier made out of wetsuit material that is comfortable for water wear.

Luxe Carriers

Why not turning your baby carrier into a fashion statement? In addition to Artipoppe luxury carrier, other top notch contenders to consider include Mama Hangs and Bumpsuits
