Your Guide To Buying a Baby Carrier

By Yehudah Posnick

    Pediatricians emphasize how important it is that a parent and child are physically close and make eye contact. This is especially true for babies in the first six months of their lives. A baby carrier is an answer to that need for closeness between the parent and the baby. Also, mothers in other countries and cultures routinely do their work and daily chores while carrying their baby in a sling (as, for example, with the Chinese mei tai baby carrier). These were the ideas for designers to make baby carriers and slings. But there are important safety factors to consider, so that the baby carrier will be comfortable for both you and your baby. Here is a guide to some of the best baby carriers on the market. 

    Soft-structured carriersThis is like a soft backpack with straps and buckles to secure it close to your body. There are variations in design as to the number of buckles and straps. Some soft-structured carriers can still be used for children up to 20 kg (45 lbs).

    Metal-frame backpack—This is a stronger design, made for carrying older children and toddlers.

    Slings—A sling is a single piece of fabric that you wear over one shoulder. You create a sort of pouch which holds the baby in front of you. Note: Pediatricians have determined that a sling is dangerous for child under 4 months of age. Below 4 months of age, the baby tends to slip too low into the sling. If you do use a baby sling, make sure the baby's face is visible at all times. Also make sure that the baby's mouth and nose are not pressed against your body, to avoid the risk of suffocation.

    Mei Tai—This is a square or rectangular-shaped piece of fabric with straps at the corners. You secure the baby to you with the straps. It allows you to carry the baby on your back or in front.

    • Multiple seat positions: Some carriers allow you several seating positions. You can carry the baby in the front facing forward, or facing you. Or you can carry the baby on your hip. Or you can carry the baby on your back, piggyback style. Not all carriers allow for all the different positions, so this is worth noting before purchasing one. Typically you can consider wearing the child on your back after s/he is 18 months of age (26 lbs, or 12 kg).

    • Lets the baby sleep: If your baby is not so cooperative in going to sleep (and prefers being held), people find that a baby carrier is a big help. The feeling of closeness lulls the baby to sleep--better than rocking the baby in a carriage.

    • Material that breathes: Some carriers are special for the hot summer months. They are made from a mesh or some other design that allows air to go through.

    • Sun cover: Some baby carriers come with an awning that protects your child from the sun. There are also accessories to protect the baby from the rain.

    • Safety: Baby carriers are more safe than slings, but there are still precautions that should still be considered:

      • Make sure that the baby's face is always visible, so that the nose and mouth are not covered.

      • Make sure that you can place two fingers between the baby's chin and chest. If the baby's head is pressed too far onto his/her chest, it might close the baby's breathing passages.

      • Make sure that the baby's head, neck and back are supported, and that there is no danger of the baby falling out when you try to extend your arm to reach for something.

    • Ergonomic/protect against dysplasia: Make sure that the baby carrier doesn't spread the baby's legs out too much. That could lead to the condition called dysplasia of the hip—where the hip joint becomes misaligned. If a baby carrier is too restrictive, it can lead to hip dysplasia. Also, make sure that the baby's weight is evenly distributed in the carrier.

    • Allow the baby to move: Baby carriers that allow the child to move are preferable. The baby's movement helps their physical development and balance.

    • Age of child: There are carriers that are suitable for infants from birth up to age 6 months. And there are carriers for toddlers as well. Some of the toddler carriers require an infant insert to make it suitable for very young children. Others are designed to allow adjusting the width as the baby grows up.

    • Padded shoulder straps—if the shoulder straps are padded, it reduces pressure. Also, if the shoulder straps can be crossed, it typically is more comfortable, because it distributes the baby's weight more evenly.

    • Head and neck support: Because a baby's head is one-third of its total weight, it's important to have a proper support for the baby's head and neck. Make sure that the baby carrier has that feature.
