2018 Best Baby Carriers: Top 5 Picks

Out of all the gizmos I was happy to have as a new mother, a baby carrier was by far my favorite one. I don’t know how I would have survived having an infant without one! After buying and trying quite a few different baby carriers, I narrowed down my Top 5.

Here is a list of baby carriers based on information from other sources, and my own experience.

Please note: that while I might think one feature is great, that doesn’t mean that it’ll be important to you! Be sure to try the carriers on (if you can) and compare all the features that may be important to you before you decide which carrier to try!

(My Favorite) Pognae No. 5 Carrier- $150+

Pros:

  • Multiple Ways (6) to Wear
  • Machine Washable (Just take the foam hip-seat out)
  • Two Baby Hoods Included
  • Front Pocket

Personally- I find this to be the MOST comfortable carrier out of ALL these carriers! I find that I can easily wear my now 20+lbs infant for hours, without causing any strain on my back. I attribute this to the hip seat. I highly recommend this carrier, and use it personally. However, each carrier and baby is different, and what works for me and my babe may not work for you!)
