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 the Long Run: BABYBJORN Baby Carrier We

In the 1960s, this Swedish company paved the way for generations of babywearing. Now, one of its most unique carriers, the We, is designed for long-term use — from the time your baby is born until he’s three years old. We found the carrier’s three-step method for positioning the baby on your back (start with him in front and slide him around) to be simpler than most.

Available online at for $57.96.
