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 a Feature Filled Ride: Beco 8 Baby Carrier

Made for babies and toddlers weighing 7 to 45 pounds, this carrier can be used four ways - facing in, facing out, on your hip and on your back. You'll also love that the crossable shoulder straps are padded and lend themselves to getting a great fit for each person wearing it. Keep keys or your cell phone handy in the zippered waist belt pocket. And feel confident carrying your newborn with the included infant insert.

Available online at , $180.
