What kind of baby carrier will be suitable for an infant?

Children love to be close to their Parents. Especially the youngest ones require closeness, which directly affects not only the sense of security of the Toddler, but also supports his development. Traditional babywearing can be quite cumbersome in the long run as the Baby gains weight with each passing week. With help come baby carriers, which on the one hand provide very close physical contact between the Toddler and the Parent, and on the other hand allow you to free your hands, so that it is possible to perform various activities, while at the same time maintaining inseparable contact with the Child is maintained.

In this post, I will try to dispel the doubts of all Parents who are trying to buy a baby carrier for their Child. I will suggest which carriers will work well for the baby, and which models are better to avoid.           

What kind of carrier is best for a newborn, and what for an infant?
When deciding to buy a baby carrier, it is important to choose wisely and appropriately for the age and weight of the toddler. This is because a different carrier should be used by a newborn baby, while another should be used by a child at an older infant age.

First of all, it is worth mentioning what types of carriers we can find on the market. To choose from:
- Woven slings and elastic slings - properly tied, provide a safe position and the necessary spinal support from the first days of life. It is worth remembering that you should also choose not only the right sling, but also the right way to tie it.
- Mei tai carriers - soft, tied carriers modeled on the traditional Asian carrier.
- Ergonomic carriers - simple to use, non-rigid carriers that allow you to maintain a physiological posture. As with a sling, in an ergonomic carrier, you can carry your Baby from the first days of life. MoMi offers a series of MoMI COLLETE carriers, comfortable for both Mom and Baby.
- Rigid carriers - their rather rigid construction forces an unnatural position, so they are not recommended as a way of carrying the Baby.

As you can see, there are at least several alternatives on the market that can be used to increase the sense of closeness with the Baby. As for newborns, but also slightly older Toddlers, I can certainly recommend both tying slings and ergonomic carriers.

Baby carriers - what to pay attention to when choosing one?
When choosing a baby carrier for the Child, first of all, Parents pay attention to the weight of the Child a given model of carrier is aimed at. It turns out, however, that this parameter is not always an indicator of a good choice. It may turn out that a Child who has reached a given weight, but still can't hold his head on his own, should not be carried in a carrier adjusted only in terms of weight.

Most Parents also attach great importance to the appearance of the infant carrier itself. We are talking primarily about the material from which it is made, as well as the color and designs.  Nevertheless, this is a secondary matter and should not interfere with the aspect of comfort and safety of use.
In addition, carriers can be chosen in terms of purpose. You can choose between carriers for everyday use or tourist carriers. When choosing them, be sure to choose the right manufacturer, which, in the case of baby carriers, guarantees quality, durability, and safety.
