The award-winning Ergo carrier has been a lifesaver (not to mention back-saver) for parents; supporting your baby the way you would naturally while distributing weight evenly across shoulders and hips. Made of 100 percent breathable cotton, the Ergo is versatile and can be worn in the front, back or hip position, letting mom or dad be hands-free. Check out Ergo’s different collections, from organic to travel.
The Boba wrap is a lightweight and budget-friendly alternative and is also small enough to fit in your purse! The Boba holds kids up to 35lb and comes in a large selection of colors. You can also use it while breastfeeding and it even acts as a small privacy shield while you nurse. It’s stretchy and comfortable to wear but it does take a little practice to get used to putting it on.
Why we love these products: With kids and/or babies in tow, hands-free is always a good thing.
Best for: Anywhere, anytime.
