Your baby’s age is one of the most important factors to consider when shopping for a carrier.
Your newborn needs a carrier that will support his head, neck and spine while keeping him close to your chest. You will need a carrier that will be comfortable and easy for you to use during the postpartum period. For this age group, we recommend Ring Slings, Stretch Wraps and Woven Wraps.
Ring slings allow for easy nursing and quick adjustability, while wraps allow for two shouldered support while you are babywearing. If you are doing kangaroo care with your baby, a ring sling or a wrap is ideal. Both ring slings and wraps can continue to be used past this stage as well.
