Comfortable and Functional Baby Carriers for Parents and Babies

Some parents feel more secure with bringing their babies around in baby carriers and here are some comfortable and functional ones!

Wearing babies by using baby carriers hasn’t been typical since strollers came out. But there are some benefits to baby-wearing, as some like to call it. Besides giving them the front-row seat of watching us, moms and dads, interact with the world, they feel secure because they can feel our physical presence. Their bodies will also adjust to our bodies’ rhythms, reducing a lot of their discomfort.

Plus, it’s less stuff to drag around when going out if strollers are too much of a hassle to bring around. Here are some comfortable and functional baby carriers that parents can buy in the Philippines.

1. Ergobaby Omni™️ All-Position Carriers

It’s perfect for babies from 0 to 48 months, making sure it can accommodate toddlers who get tired.

We love multi-purpose baby items and the Infantino 4in1 Convertible Carrier caters to infants to their toddler years.

Other benefits of using baby carriers for both parents and babies

Some studies have shown that baby carriers can help colicky babies calm down. Colic, unfortunately, is usually why babies get fussy but nobody knows what causes it. Carrying them around also prevents them from “Flat Head Syndrome” which is what babies get if they lie down for extended periods. But baby carriers also offer benefits to parents, helping both learn their babies’ personalities.
