Whether it's for closer baby bonding, hands-free convenience or an attachment parenting lifestyle, a baby carrier can be an essential baby product for the sleepless newborn days all the way through the heavy toddler years. You just have to find the right one for you.
To make your search easier, Babble tested dozens of baby carriers in every style imaginable - soft-structure, slings, wraps, backpacks - to find the best for your particular lifestyle. Don't see your favorite? Feel free to nominate it!
MOST STYLISH | Petunia Pickle Bottom Sightseer Carrier
After trying both the Petunia Pickle Bottom Sightseer carrier and Soujorn sling, we can say two things: So. Pretty. If we’re going to dub the BabyBjorn as “Best Dad Carrier,” then we have to say that this Petunia Pickle Bottom Sightseer is what every mom wants to be seen in. It might not be the most practical (you won’t get as much longevity and versatility as other carriers that last up to 40+ pounds), but my goodness, it’s cute! (Style mavens can even get a Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bag with matching fabric.) Bottom line: It’s a gorgeous gift, perfect for occasional use, but it might not be the best option for more serious baby wearers.
