It’s a fact: babies love being carried. And really, who could blame them? Before entering our great, big world they are snug as a bug in your belly happily being carted around with you everywhere you go. The problem is, once your baby is born you can’t possibly carry them around all day long. That’s why baby carriers are such a lifesaver. They allow babies to feel as cozy as they did in the womb, while also allowing you to be comfortably hands free. From stylish and fashion-forward to simple and sporty, we’ve rounded up the coolest baby carriers and slings on the market.

For Ultimate Versatility: Ergobaby Four Position 360

Ergobaby fans love the company’s products for their soft, easy style that keeps baby in an ergonomically correct position. When parents called for a version with an outward-facing option, the brand responded with the Ergobaby 360, a new take on its classic carrier that lets your baby see the world in a comfortable, ergonomic front-facing position. (You can also face her inward or perch her on your hip.) Parents love the 360’s padded shoulder straps and wide, supportive belt.

Available online at ergobaby.com, $160.
