six-position carrier with a 3D-mesh panel to regulate temperature, so both you and baby don't get overheated.
The baby carrier has six positions to hold your little one, including fetal, infant, outward, and toddler, hip carry, and back carry. It also has lumbar support, a zippered storage pocket, removable sleeping hood, and an extendable torso.
Promising review: "This is my favorite structured carrier by far. It's comfortable and supportive, and the zip-down panel kept up cool in humid summer. This is also a great option for taller/bigger parents because the straps are long. I have a very small waist and I had to remove the lumbar support but it is still very comfortable." — Ashley
Price: $109+ (available in 21 colors)
wrap you can customize to work however you want it to, especially if you have multiple people of different sizes using it.
Promising review: "We love this wrap!! As a plus-size mom and dad, we were worried this wouldn't work for our body types. But I wear it with extra room, and I am a size 20-22, and my husband wears this wrap as well and he is 6'2" and wears a 4-5XLT. We also have a big baby!" — Amazon Customer
Price: $11.95+ (available in 12 colors)
four-in-one convertible carrier with a two-in-one bib to protect everything from baby's number one weapon: drool.
The machine-washable carrier fits infants 8-32 pounds and can carry them in four different ways: baby facing in a narrow seat for newborns, facing the adult in a wide seat, facing outward for babies with head control, and on the back for older babies and toddlers.
Promising review: "I was worried about the quality of this infant carrier because of how cheap it is, but I'm very impressed!! It's super comfortable, and it holds my 2-week-old newborn without feeling like he is going to slip or fall out. It feels very safe and secure, and he loves to be up against me! I 100% would recommend!" — Tiffanie Totman
Or a no-frills, no-fuss
option with a bear-y cute hood that'll protect your little one from the elements when you're out and about.
It holds babies 12 to 40 lbs, has a removable canopy hood, is machine-washable, and carries the babies both on the front and back.
Promising review: "I love this carrier! The strap around the waist helps distribute the weight better so my back doesn’t hurt when I’m carrying my son around for long periods of time. We like to go for hikes, so comfort is crucial. The little hood keeps the sun off of him nicely, and it detaches for when we don’t need it. I love the pocket too. It works great for putting my phone in when I want to listen to music on our walks. I highly recommend this product." — Julie R
hip seat to help support your back if your child still wants to be carried long after they can walk.
Promising review: "I have never written a review before but had to for this AMAZING product! My little one wants to be carried all the time, which is not exactly great for my back! This has been a lifesaver for me. It takes so much pressure off my back, and I love that I can wear it front-facing as well. It is also such an added bonus to have little pockets to put my keys, cell, credit card, etc. We are planning a trip to Disneyland, and this is going to be such a lifesaver in line as they don’t allow strollers, and I don’t want to deal with all the straps from a carrier. I plan on giving this as a baby shower gift as well!" — Charles Packer
Price: $79.99 (available in grey and black)
carrier you can use all year round, no matter what it's like outside, because it has an all-weather cover included to protect your precious darling.
Plus, it can be used from birth without a newborn insert till your baby is a year old. It is also made from 100% cotton.
Promising review: "I love it! I have a preemie, so I couldn't use many other carriers. This is super lightweight and easy to wash. It's very comfy to wear and put on and take off. The baby fell asleep in two minutes in it. You will need a hat or a head cover from the sun walking around, but I'm ok with that. Also, the fabric is so soft." — Ajna Kenning
Price: $79.99+ (available in two styles)
360 option that has a structured bucket seat to keep baby comfortable and happy — which will in turn make you comfortable and happy!
Promising review: "I bought this baby carrier out of many other brands because my baby had a hip displacement (DDH) from birth. She took off the harness after 8 weeks, but my husband and I are still careful with her hip and legs. Upon researching for quite a while, I learned that Ergobaby carrier has wide seating area, which makes my baby's legs to spread apart (safe for the babies with DDH). The price was pretty high, but the straps and waistband are very strong, which holds my baby safely. I'm very satisfied with the carrier." — Lj
Price: $125.99+ (available in eight colors)
carrier you'll get the best of both worlds with, as it has the seat and support of a structured one with the flexibility and customizability of a wrap.
It's made of soft fabric with spandex and is recommended for babies 8-35 pounds.
Promising review: "This is a great carrier! It’s a combo of a structured carrier and a wrap. It's super easy to use and looks cute. I also like the part of the carrier that allows for head support, which is nice for when they are working on building those neck muscles. I have tried several different carriers, and this one is the easiest to use. I feel like no one knows about this carrier. It was a great purchase!" — AN
Price: $45.89+ (available in black, gray, and blue)
ring sling that'll probably make your phone start ringing off the hook because all your friends will be asking you where you got this amazing thing.
It's made of eco-friendly bamboo and linen, plus 5% of sales are donated to families in need, so you can truly feel good about your purchase!
Promising review: "I absolutely love this ring sling! I have five other ring slings, and this has quickly become the only one I want to use. The natural color and copper rings are beautiful, and the material is so soft. My little one is secure in it, and I feel comfortable doing chores and playing with my older kiddo. I love it so much I'm considering getting a second one to have as backup. I love it!" — Rachel Trisler
Price: $64.80+ (available in seven colors)
sash wrap and tie perfect for more petite parents who don't want all the extra bulk.
Plus, it has a detachable hood is and buckle-free and machine-washable.
Promising review: "This carrier is AMAZING! I am a small person and most of the other carriers are so bulky and uncomfortable on me. I originally purchased a $160 carrier that everyone raved about, but I hated it. I couldn't get anything done and was constantly adjusting it. I have a heavy baby and with this carrier, I don't even feel her weight. I feel like she is secure and a part of me. If you are looking for comfort, I highly recommend this carrier!" — Tim & Riss Patnode
carrier made for the adventure-loving family that won't (and shouldn't!) let a baby stop them from getting out there and exploring the great outdoors.
Promising review: "A friend recommended this, and it has been a perfect solution for taking our toddler hiking. It's easy to set up and adjust, easy to get him in and out, and has tons of storage space. He was perfectly content and comfortable riding in it for about an hour straight on our first test drive with it, and he's never happy being still that long unless he's sleeping." — Kristen B. Miller
Price: $290 (available in green, black, and blue)
budget-friendly option if you're trying to be a more adventurous family, even if that means just making it to the park down the street.
Plus, it has a removable large storage area to act as a backpack for all the gear you need. It's recommended for ages 6-8 months old.
Promising review: "This thing is great. Our 5-month-old is just barely big enough to start using it, but we are excited for many hikes. This is as comfortable as you are going to get carry a baby on your back, and the extra pockets are great too. I highly recommended." — Scott S.
Price: $79.99+ (available in five colors)
wrap that slips on like a T-shirt, making it super easy to get baby in the right position as you're running out the door.
Reviewers recommend sizing down.
Promising review: "This is exactly what I was searching for in a wrap! It's so easy to put on and get baby in and out of. As a single parent with two other children, I wanted something I wasn’t struggling to wrap around myself and tie up, and could still have the convenience of a wrap to keep baby close. The Baby K’tan is perfect! I can have my hands free with ease, and there are a variety of ways to put baby in. Very comfortable, easy to throw in the washer, and it doesn’t take up lots of space in my diaper bag." — Amazon Customer
Price: $39.91+ (available in six sizes and four colors)
carrier that holds a baby (or toddler!) up to 60 pounds comfortably without making you feel like you might topple over.
Promising review: "I got this for an international trip. I didn't want to take a stroller, but we have some late flights, so my 4.5-year-old couldn't walk through the airports at 2 a.m. I tested it a few times by carrying her through the store for an hour at a time, and I didn't have any back or shoulder pain. She was comfy and didn't complain. I definitely recommend if you need to carry a bigger kid around." — edt.esq
Price: $80+ (available in baby and toddler sizes and in 24 colors)
ring sling made of 100% hand-loomed cotton for eco-conscious parents who want to feel good about the products they're using with their child.
Promising review: "This sling is completely amazing! It is a super-soft, high-quality fabric, very comfortable, and easy to adjust, while still being safe and sturdy for my baby girl. She is 4 months, weighs 14 pounds, and fits beautifully in the sling. I know it will also adjust to fit her as she grows, so I will be sure to use it for a long time. My mom, who watches her while I’m at work, also uses it regularly and loves it!" — Jessica Drumm
Price: $39.95+ (available in nine colors)
And finally, a
doll carrier, if your older child wants to join in on the fun of carrying around something they love.
Promising review: "This is beyond adorable for any little girl or boy who likes to play with dolls. I have boy/girl twins, and they often like playing with each other's toys, which I encourage. Seeing my son wear a baby doll was just too cute. It fits really well on my now-4-year-old twins and looks like it will fit them for a few more years yet. It is made of the same materials as the grown-up version. It has a little pocket on the inside (kind of looks like a pair of underwear), but it's to slide the doll in so it will stay put. Great quality and cute. It gets two thumbs up from this mom." — TIU25
Price: $20+ (available in nine styles)
When you've fed, changed, and held your baby and yet they still won't stop crying.
