Little Miss Kate is an expert at baby wearing and she introduced Brampton moms to 3 types of carriers: Slings/Pouch – best suited for babies with good head control (3 months +). Best positions include Kangaroo carry and hip carry. Shown here: Peanut Shell Classic Sling

Wraps – the most versatile of all carriers, can be used from newborn to ~25lbs. Many ways to tie the wrap and position the baby. May look intimidating at first but after a couple of tries will be able to do it in no time. Pictured here Little D's Wrap
Soft Structured Carriers – best suited for babies with good head control, or newborns if used with infant adapters. Weight distributed on shoulders and hips, great for heavier babies and toddlers. Can easily carry baby/toddler in front, back or hip carry. Pictured here Beco Butterfly II

There are many great accessories you can buy to make baby wearing easy all year long. Keep warm in the winter with the Ergo Lightweight Papoose Coat. The Peekaru Vest is perfect for spring/fall.
