Best Baby Carriers of 2017 | Moby Wrap, Ergobaby, BabyBjorn

In years past, parents chose from just a couple popular baby carriers. But, in true baby gear form, almost every major manufacturer now makes their own. These are the picks that have really impressed us! Here’s our roundup of the best baby carriers for 2017.

Moby Wrap: It’s a really. really big piece of cloth but it shouldn’t scare you at all. Wraps are the oldest form of baby wearing and they’ve been used for centuries. When you’ve got the hang of it, you’ll love the perfectly snug feel of your Moby Wrap. What’s great about them is that you can personalize it to whoever is wearing baby. No need for sizing!

Baby K’tan Wrap: Nicknamed a “structured wrap,” the Baby K’tan gives the cozy feel of a wrap with less steps. The Baby K’tan comes in two pieces and is super simple to put on by yourself! Securely hold baby in eight different positions. It also has a built-in back support band to keep you comfy. They are sized, though, so you and your partner might need to each have your own.

Ergobaby 360: If you’re out and about, chances are you’ll see a little one in an Ergobaby 360 Carrier. They’re incredibly versatile and popular with our Magic Beans customers! It’s a four-position carrier, which means you can position baby: facing you, facing the world, on your hip, and on your back. You’ll need an Infant Insert to carry baby from newborn to about six months. Do you live in a region that experiences sticky summers? Grab the 360 Cool Air Mesh for breathable fabric that keeps you (and baby) cooler longer.

Cybex Yema: A fashion-forward carrier, the Cybex Yema is incredibly easy to apply on your own. It couples the ease of a structured carrier with the customization of a wrap! Your infant can only be parent-facing, but as they get older you can wear baby on your hip or back. The Yema is also a great option for parents that typically experience back pain.

BabyBjorn Carrier One: BabyBjorn has been in the carrier business for years– and it shows! Their structured Carrier One lets you face baby towards you or the world. There’s no need to buy an infant insert with the Carrier One, as it’s built right in. This year’s model features improvements like a sturdier waist belt and more padding in the shoulder straps.

Stokke MyCarrier: Offering options for a Front Carrier or a Front and Back Carrier, Stokke lets you personalize your carrier to exactly what you need! We’ve found that the MyCarrier is great for parents with taller torsos, too. What’s great about the back carrier is that you can put baby in first before strapping it onto your back. You can also find the Stokke MyCarrier in their chic Athleisure Collection!

So how do you put these things on? Watch Nat, Assistant Manager at our Boston location, demo them all on our YouTube channel.

But, of course, trying these carriers on your own body is the best visual. Head over to your nearest Magic Beans location and meet with one of our awesome Gear Gurus.  If you’re outside of Massachusetts or Connecticut, not to worry! Schedule a free consultation via phone, chat, or even video chat!
