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!)Mumsnet, http://www.mumsnet.com/reviews/carriers-and-slings/148-manduca-baby-and-child-carrier, 2012-05-15 15:25:27
I love wearing my baby. I've tried the Bjorn and Moby wrap, and prefer the Manduca if I were to have one sling. Personally I have all three - but find I use this one the most. It is by far the easiest on your back and core muscles, which is important postpartum. It can also be used from birth through toddlerhood!Baby Carrying mumma, Hertfordshire, 15/05/2012
This carrier is AMAZING!! the other sort don't even come close! Have used other carriers before and this one is the ultimate! Comfy for baby and parent.. the other kind make you feel like baby is 'dangling' and pull on your shoulders but this one supports baby beautifully in more of a 'sitting' position and you dont feel their weight on you at all... I have walked for hours with this carrier and not felt a thing! (fantastic if parent has a bad back) 5 stars!!Sazzle, Kent, 15/05/2012
Lightweight, practical and easy to useDaniel, Amazon Oct 2010, 15/05/2012
Great product -- this is our third baby carrier after having one that was only suitable for newborns and another that was not much use. This one is comfortable for parents (soft straps and good distribution of load) and baby seems to like it too. Only slight disadvantage is that the strap at the back is a bit fiddly to do up if you're on your own.
