You might be thinking about purchasing a baby carrier but not quite sure what to choose or what’s best. Here’s some overview on things you have to consider in picking your partner in rearing your child!
1.SAFETY First! The cliche in it is we sometimes tend to depend on what we saw in malls and in our neighbours. But little did we know, what seems to be easily available isn’t the safest at all. A safe baby carrier should support T.I.C.K.S.
Tight – baby should not slump down inside carrier.
In view at all times – most especially for newborn, you should always easily look at your baby’s face.
Close enough to kiss – so yes your baby shouldn’t be dangling along with your legs.
Keep your baby’s chin off from his chest.
Supported back – in an upright carry a baby should be held comfortably close to the wearer so their back is supported in its natural position and their tummy and chest are against you. A hip-safe carrier should also promote M position to prevent hip dysplasia.
2. For how long do you plan to use your carrier? Should it be versatile from newborn to toddler or good for newborns only, and so on.
3. Who will use the carrier? Are you sharing it with all the caregivers in the family? Then it should be versatile to fit everybody’s body frame.
4. Do you want to purchase only one carrier for your entire babywearing journey? Do you have plans in trying other more carriers for other occasions, venues, etc?
5. What is your budget? Did you know you can buy a versatile and safe or “ergonomic carrier” for as low as 2000 php?
Handwoven, 100% cotton ringslings and wraps are the most versatile baby carriers. They are suitable from newborn to toddler and can blend well with most of any set ups from formal occasions to casual gatherings, or just doing your daily errands!
