Re: Best baby carriers for newborns/infants?

I prefered my mei tai for when Tharen was tiny. Actually he screamed in the ring sling or in the graco soft carrier my SIL gave me . My freehand mei tai worked perfectly. I wore him on my chest and was comfortable for hours. over time we worked our way up to a back carry and he still happily rides on my back at 15 months and 26lbs.

ETA: here we are using the mei tai for the first time. Tharen was just 4 weeks old http://new.photos.yahoo.com/iris0110...03173809706/17

Re: Best baby carriers for newborns/infants?

I asked this over at the baby wearer and it here's what I was told to be the best two shouldered carriers for newborns and infants:

Wraps, if you can deal with the learning curve. Once their on, you can pop the baby in and out as needed, so you don't need to retie it so much. They are kept close and safe, with head support. They are the most versitile, too. Moby and Gypsy Mama were recommended.

Smaller bodied mei tais like Freehand Baby and Kozy Carrier, or an adjustable mei tai like Mei Tai Baby (the bottom of the carrier snaps together to become smaller to let baby's legs out earlier).

HTH!

OTSBH is my fave. because I don't like having to wear my carrier when baby isn't in it. But if you don't like RS then I say go for a Moby! Just my
