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.
