I have always been a huge fan of the Baby Bjorn carriers. I still have the same one we bought when our first baby was born, more than 7 years ago. I just love how simple it is — how easy it is to put on and strap baby in. But, I must admit I’ve always been intrigued by the carriers which you can use on the front and the back. It seems really practical to have a baby carrier which you can use as your child grows into the toddler stage.
VUP Baby recently sent me a Manduca carrier to try out, and so far I am really impressed. I like that the Manduca carrier has an integrated newborn pouch for babies, and you can adjust the height of the carrier to ensure your baby’s head is supported. I first put Marlow in the carrier when she was 5 days old (see photo), and she’ll be able to ride in the carrier (front, back or hip) until she is three (or roughly 20kg)! Plus, it’s made of organic cotton which is always a bonus. I think, after all these years, I’ve been converted!
What about you? Are you a fan of baby carriers, or do you prefer the buggy/stroller? If so, which baby carrier/sling do you use? (There are so many options!)
