Best Baby Carriers for Dads

Best Baby Carriers for Dads

People often think that a baby carrier that will fit mum, won’t fit dad, however this couldn’t be more untrue. Baby Carriers are generally designed for both men and women to wear, so both mum and dad can enjoy the benefits of keeping baby close.

Most parents want to choose a carrier that works well for mum and dad and we have selected carriers that are both easy to use and comfortable no matter who’s carrying the baby. But we know Dad’s can be quite specific and want things to be simple and easy, so things to think about are:

  1. How easily adjustable the carrier is
  2. What carry position Dad will want to use
  3. Fabric type (and when you’ll be using the carrier).
  4. How quick the carrier it to put on

    If you’re not sure, book a carrier fitting with our consultants so you can try on before buying!

Beco 8
