Should I Get A Baby Carrier?
Becoming a parent is an exciting adventure and a big part of it is deciding what baby products you will need. A pushchair is usually the first choice for parents but more and more parents are purchasing Baby Carriers to go alongside it.
What is a Baby Carrier?
A Baby Carrier usually consists of two shoulder straps for the wearer to support the fabric seat that baby is secured into. As a result, it allows you to wear your baby leaving you hands-free. There are advanced features that come with baby carriers now such as different baby wearing positions including front, hip and back.
