A baby carrier is one of the “must buy” accessories for newbie parents. At times you need to carry your baby outdoors along with you – may be during travel or simply during a stroll to the busy streets in market. The baby carriers from good brands like Babybjorn Baby Carrier One, Childcare Baby Carrier, etc. help you cuddle your child against your body while leaving your hands free for other chores. It is an advantage for you as well as your child. You can move to the outdoors easily, navigate crowded places and take care for your daily chores while your child relaxes or snoozes embraced to you.
According to the experts, "baby wearing" can pacify a fussy child, promote the mother-child bonding and help in reducing a mom's risk for post-delivery depression. To enjoy all the benefits of a baby carrier, you must buy the best possible carrier that suits your requirements. Here are the key points to consider while buying a baby carrier:
Age of your baby: Just like a wooden kids daybed, kids toybox and baby car accessories buying a baby carrier also involves the age of your baby as an important consideration. Neck support is a prime feature you should look for while buying a baby carrier for new born to 5-6 month old baby. Babies during this age do not develop enough strength in their neck to support their head independently, so a neck support in the carrier keeps them safe and cuddled properly. For example, a Babybjorn Baby Carrier One is perfect for a newborn without the need of any infant insert.
Weather appropriate: Some carriers might be too warm for those extreme summer days. If you are buying a baby carrier for hotter locations, avoid such fabrics and darker colors, as dark shades heat up easily.
Comfort for your baby: Try buying front carriers having padded leg holes that are loose enough – this will not constrict your baby’s thighs and keep him/her comfortable. To support the baby’s neck and head while he/she is taking a nap, look for the ones with a padded headrest. If you are buying wraps and slings, just ensure that the fabric is breathable and gentle – so your baby won’t overheat.
Ease of use of the baby carrier: You should be able to take the carrier on and off and get your baby in and out without any help. For this ease of use, ensure to buy a carrier which you can easily navigate by yourself – preferably with one hand.
Easy to clean: Kids are messy, so always make sure that the baby carrier is easy to clean and dry. For example, a Childcare Baby Carrier offers ease to clean with its machine wash fabric.
Versatility: Most of the times, a sling or wrap style of carrier is preferred for younger baby and a front carrier for a toddler or an older baby. Taking this into thought, many carriers are now designed to grow with your child. Some front carriers also accommodate newborns with the help of a special infant insert.
Ergonomics of the Baby carrier: A good ergonomically designed baby carrier must not obstruct the natural growth of child. The baby should be in a perfect position that is as comfortable and natural as possible. Most of the carriers available at All for Kids including Babybjorn Baby Carrier One, Childcare Baby Carrier, etc. are ergonomically designed baby carriers. You can pick up the one that suits your needs.
