If you're looking for the best baby carrier or an easy toddler carrier, THESE ARE IT!
There are a ton of benefits to carrying your baby… that I honestly don't know a lot about SO I plan to get someone on my podcast to talk about it all. But, beyond that, it's also just super convenient to have your babe attached to you so you can get things done. I wear these carriers literally everyday and people always stop me to ask what they are.
I wanted EASY solutions to wearing my baby! And I've found 3 of the best soft structured baby carriers and the Tush Baby seat carrier for EASY carrying of toddlers and babies.
These are on the expensive side, but I wear them literally everyday so for me, it's worth it.
In the video I try all of these carriers on so you can see what they look like. But, starting with the Sakura Bloom Onbuhimo, there's no hip strap on this one, but it does have a strap that goes across the top of your back which saves your shoulders A LOT. When you're wearing a carrier with your baby in the front, there is a lot of pulling forward that happens so this helps with that. It can also be worn on your back when you need both of your hands free and a little more space. Plus, it holds up to 45 pounds so definitely can use when they are toddler as well.
Okay, the Sakura Bloom Scout. This one gets put on like an apron. Same strap at the top of the back, which I love.
Same sort of idea with the Boppy carrier. You put it on like an apron, get your babe in it, and then flip the top up. The Boppy has a little bit more fabric, it has two super long straps that go over your shoulders and then tie behind your back. Super good low back support with this.
In this one, your baby can be facing you or facing out, which is not the case with the Sakura Blooms. I remember my first absolutely loved when she could face out toward the world and see what was going on so that is one really nice feature with the Boppy carrier. I even went on a hike with this one!
My Boppy is from Facebook Marketplace, but they're also literally always on sale on Amazon.
This carrier is for when your babe is a little bit older and can sit up a bit. You strap it to your waist and your baby sits on top of it.
This ones not for babies so much. With a baby you can turn them to the side and it can serve as a super great support when breastfeeding (or even bottle feeding). But, it's much better when they get a little bigger and you have a toddler or an older babe and they can just sit on top of the little cushion. And once they can hold themselves up, you can do things with two hands too.
Again, this one lets you have them facing towards you or out, away from you. It also has some little pouches and such to keep keys, chapstick, wallet, some hand sanitzer, your phone…whatever you may have. My second is too little for this one, but with my older daughter, this was my absolute favorite thing in Target. I could have both hands free, she wasn't running around in the store, and she could still see what was going on.

I hope this was helpful! Like I said, there are a lot of benefits to using a carrier. I don't know a lot about the scientific aspects of it, but I do know that it is super handy and that my baby will take 3 hour naps in that thing vs the 30-40 minute naps she normally takes. I highly recommend investing in a quality carrier.
