You’re cleared to finally start working out after a long post-childbirth recovery. So, now what? As your baby cries to be held by his mama, you soon realize that it’s just not a realistic plan to get your postpartum exercise in everyday.
Mama, it’s time to invest in one of the best mom inventions known to motherkind, THE BABY CARRIER.
Oh, but there are so many options to choose from and so little time to read through all of those repetitive reviews!
I have felt the struggle and am here for you, girl.
Furthermore, I present to you, a narrowed down list of the the best, multifunctional baby carriers to date:
1.) The Maya Wrap Ring Sling
If you are looking for a carrier to take with you anywhere, this is your guy! With its light weight fabric, you can fold it and easily fit it into a bag. Out of the two baby carriers I own, this is the one I use the most. I find it so easy to simply slip it on when I need quick assistance. Additionally, you can breastfeed your baby in it as well.
With all this in mind, I do want to warn you that this sling is made to wear over one shoulder, making it hard to gain full range of motion with that arm. This can be worn with your baby from 8-35 pounds.
Tip: your can also double sling for my twin mommies.
This carrier is great for a few reasons: both arms are free to move, you can where it in six positions, and it is EXTREMELY secure. I also own this carrier myself and absolutely love it.
(Fun fact, if you don’t already know, I work as a dance instructor. I have worn my son in this carrier while teaching and was able to do everything full out. Talk about secure!)
You can wear your baby with it from 7-45 pounds. Something that also stands out on this one, is its lumbar back support panel, which is a big help when carrying a 22 pound mister.
First of all, check out the designs offered on this one…can I say CUTE? This is such a great option for a hands free carrier because the body of it is made out of soft fabric. Babies can be worn in Baby Tula from 7-45 pounds.
For my mamas who are on a budget, this is for you. It has multiple wearing positions and is hands free just like the previous two, but much cheaper. Infantino can be worn with baby from 8-32 pounds.
The design of this baby carrier is unique in that it actually has pouches and storage on its exterior. What a perfect carrier for hiking mamas! Additionally, it folds down for easy storage. This carrier can be used from 3-36 months.
Life looking simpler now? Good!
Now, just a little bit of advice from one mama to another, before purchasing your baby carrier.
Ask yourself, “Where am I going to use it?” If the answer is consistently away from home, I suggest one you can easily fold and carry in a bag. Also, consider what you will be doing with it. Working out? Arms free is best. Playing the in and out game? The Maya Wrap sling makes life easier.
Happy shopping mamas!
