There’s no doubt that babies prefer being held all the time… and why wouldn’t they? They are carried for almost a year prior to birth, in a cocoon of warmth and safety. Babywearing can provide a similar continued intimacy for you and your little one. Baby carriers and wraps allow parents to maintain that special bond, while also providing the luxury of being hands free!
With the world we’re living in at the moment, babywearing really does make life easier. You can continue with your chores around the house without worrying about being far away when your little one needs you. Remember, a carried baby is a happy baby.
Two of the most beloved brands that are synonymous with babywearing are Ergobaby and BabyBjörn. Their main focus has always been to provide comfort for both baby and parent.
Ergobaby is well known for their carriers and wraps that define comfort and ease of use. The brand was created by mom, Karin Frost whose humble design revolutionized how we carry babies. Beginning with a parent’s love for her child and her desire to keep him close, the ergonomic, comfortable design of the Ergobaby Baby Carrier was born.
One of the best selling products from Ergobaby is the Omni 360 Cool Air Mesh Baby Carrier:
- Parents and baby stay cool and comfy
- Adjustable from newborn to toddler (3.2 kg – 20 kg)
- All carry positions plus ultimate ventilation
- Breathable, lightweight all-mesh carrier
- Machine washable
- Breastfeed in carrier

BabyBjörn sold their first baby bouncer in 1961. Founder & pioneer Björn Jakobson knew that it would make things easier for families with young children, and he was right – it’s been one of the best-loved products ever since! Björn and Lillemor, a textile designer and art director, got married and had four children, each of whom served as the inspiration behind a new product to solve an everyday dilemma.
Björn had always worked closely with pediatricians, and in the 1970s they encouraged him to develop a baby carrier. New findings at the time shed light on how important plenty of closeness is for newborns. Hjärtenära (“Close to Heart”) was unveiled in 1973, giving parents in Europe the means to carry their babies safely on their chest. Years later, and Hjärtenära still holds true
