Why Buy a Baby Carrier?

A baby carrier is a great way for mum and dad to bond with their baby and is one piece of baby kit most parents can't live without.

With a baby carrier you'll have the freedom to tackle other tasks while holding your baby close--such as eating a meal with both hands, holding the hands of siblings or pushing a pushchair.

Bonding With Your Baby During the First Six Months

Using a baby carrier means your baby is close to you and safe. A baby carrier is ideal for keeping your baby where they are happiest--close to your body where they're comforted by your heartbeat. The most important time to carry your baby is during the first six months because it gives your child a sense of closeness and security. When being carried high on a parent's chest, the child can feel mum or dad's breathing and voice.

Your Scent

In the early days of a baby's life, a baby carrier can be very reassuring for your new arrival. Newborn babies have poor vision but an excellent sense of smell, so holding your baby near you means they'll be able to smell your scent and will feel comforted.

Ease Baby's Discomfort

If your baby suffers from reflux, colic or wind after feeding, holding them upright in a baby carrier might make it easier for the gas to pass through their body. Being held close in a carrier can also help settle and soothe a tired, fretful baby.

Good Neck Support Important

Look for a baby carrier that offers good neck support as babies' necks are not strong enough to support the head during the first months of life.

Carry Your Newborn Baby Facing You

For newborn babies and small children, being in close contact with both parents is very important for bonding within the family. Carrying your baby in an upright position face-to-face soothes them and gives them a sense of security and harmony. Being able to see their parent's face allows your baby to imitate facial expressions which stimulates brain development.

Look after your back and shoulders

A baby carrier that provides waist and lumbar support straps will distribute the weight of your baby evenly across your whole back and allow you to remove pressure from your shoulders.

Here's a selection of our bestselling baby carriers.
