A Primer on the Most Popular Types of Baby Carrier found in Australia
When looking for a baby pouch online, it is important to understand the key differences between the various types typically found in Australia today. While all baby carriers are designed to promote bonding with your little one while simultaneously freeing your hands to do other tasks, not all carriers are ideal for everyone. Let’s explore some of the more common types.
The Mei Tai baby carrier is an Australia-wide favourite amongst mums due to its versatility and ease of use. Another type of baby wrap that is growing to be popular and often found online are the soft sling carriers or woven wraps that are typically made of a single piece of long fabric that a parent wraps around themselves to secure their child. Depending on how you wrap the fabric, these carriers may be able to safely hold a newborn all the way up to a 15kg pre-schooler.
The woven wrap is a wonderful and flexible choice for parents looking to carry their baby and keep their little one close. Whilst a woven wrap or soft sling is more traditional to eastern cultures, a woven wrap baby carrier will help keep your baby in its natural position giving their and the parent support where it’s needed.
If you want one baby carrier to rule them all, a soft sling is potentially the way to go—yet be aware that getting comfortable with the wrapping process can take some time. You’ll need to be willing to learn a few carries but once you’re done, you’ll see the benefits right away both in comfort and versatility. At Woven Wraps Australia, our key specialty is the woven wrap and we stock an amazing online range of colours and styles for all seasons.
One other type of carrier to consider is the baby buckle carrier, available online at Woven Wraps Australia from Kinderpack. These soft structured carriers have a moulded buckle waist and two shoulder straps at the arms. These are ideal for families on the go, enabling parents to go grocery shopping or hiking with their little one with ease. American made, Kinderpack offer the perfect long-term baby carrier for the family on the go that wants to use a quick and easy solution. Each Kinderpack soft structured carrier is hand made in America so you know it’s made well for you and your child.
