Baby carriers and ‘‘babywearing’’ in general have become very popular in recent years. This is due to modern lifestyle, that forces parents to spend a lot of time outside their house. Apart from this, close contact between parents and their children has proved to be beneficial for infants’ psychological health. This is another reason behind the success of this type of products.
Mei Tai Baby Carrier
There are many types of baby carriers on the market. Famous among new parents is the so-called “mei tai”, which rests on the parent’s shoulders and gives the baby a sense of embrace.
For those who prefer a more… exotic option, a ring sling baby carrier is perfect. It’s actually a piece of clothing held in place with hoop buckles.
Baby carriers are also classified according to the body part they are attached onto. You can choose a back or a chest carrier depending on your body’s capabilities.
Despite the obvious benefits of a baby carrier, there are a few things to look out for. First of all, the baby should not hunch inside the carrier, as this may cause problems with his/her skeleton or respiratory system.
