Slideshow: 4 ways to wear baby and why
Babywearing is a fantastic alternative to everyday strollers or lugging your baby around in a car seat. A carrier allows you and your child to safely explore the world while bonding with lots of eye contact, touching, as many forehead kisses as you’d like.

Front Inward Carry:
This is the most common way to wear your baby and is ideal for a newborn. The Front-Face-In carry, with baby’s body in the ergonomic “frog-leg” position, is the best way to carry an infant younger than 6 months. This way they can see your face, help regulate themselves with your warmth and your heartbeat, and access your breasts if a little nursing is in order.

Front Outward Carry:
For young babies, environments can be overstimulating. They can’t see very far in front of their face, and really all they want to look at is you. However, there will come a time when your baby will begin to signal (by turning their head and making an effort to look around) that they’re ready to explore the world with you. At that time you can start carrying Front Outward with confidence.

This style of carrying can only be used when a baby is strong enough to support their head on their own, and comfortably sit with their legs wide around your waist. As your baby grows, a Back Carry position is likely to be used a lot as it’s easier to carry a heavier baby for longer periods of time. Baby will surely enjoy the view from up there!
