Since before Arthur was born I have been interested in the practice of “Baby Wearing”, holding your baby in a carrier strapped to your body. I had done some research on the benefits of baby staying close to their mama, especially during the first 3 months of life, but also long afterwards as well, and I felt like this was something I wanted to enjoy with my little Bumpkin!
There was a whole world opened up to me in my research and to be honest it was quite overwhelming to know which carrier(s) would work best for us. I found lots of info about what types of carriers are great for babies and mommy (and daddy’s) development and comfort and had a general idea of what not to buy, that still left plenty of options to choose from!
Over the next little while I will share a more in depth review of each carrier I own, and how it’s working (or not working) for us! Today is just a quick peek into our “stash”!

Some of these photos speak for themselves, but I will share my thoughts and opinions on how I like each carrier, and the function it serves for us, as well as Arthur’s opinion… at least what I can gather from his demeanour in each carrier! I’m looking forward to this little ‘series’ and I hope that it may be helpful if you were curious about trying some different carriers yourself!
