Baby Carrier Review

Before choosing a baby carrier, I highly recommend (if possible) going to your local baby boutique to see if they have models you can try on. The salespersons can help you figure out how to get into the various contraptions--a big bonus if you think something looks interesting but you feel you would have no idea how to put it on. Many places also have baby dolls that can go in the carriers, so you can really feel like you're simulating the baby wearing experience. It really is worth it to do this. I have four baby carriers. Yes, four. It sounds excessive, I know. But I used each one for a specific period of time and/or purpose. The following is a rundown of what I used, when, and why. (Although, to be honest, if I had followed my own advice (see above), I admittedly might have had up to 50% fewer carriers.)
