Baby carriers- not wraps/ slings

What baby carrier would you recommend? I have a moby that was handed down so would prefer one that's more structured. Would also like my husband to be able to use it and he is very broad and muscular (not sure if they come in sizes or some are better at larger fit than others). Thanks for your suggestions!

Re: Baby carriers- not wraps/ slings

  • Love love love my Beco Gemini. I do think it fits fairly slim compared to others though. I haven't worn other structured carriers to compare, but have heard others say that. Beco has other models though besides the Gemini.

  • Beco, I have both styles and love them! I have tried almost everything and these are the winners by leaps and bounds!

    I've got the Beco Soleil and it adjusts to fit me (5'2") and my muscular 5'9" husband very well. I preferred it over the Ergo for comfort.

    I have the Lillebaby Airflow. It's super comfortable! Both me and my LO overheat really easily, and it keeps us both comfortable.
  • My husband is also very muscular and he loves the ergo. We have to loosen all of the straps but it works and it's comfortable. We went to a local baby store and tried it on before we bought it. My husband gets very warm so we went with the Ergo Performance which is made of different fabric and breathes more. We are both able to put it on by ourselves.

    We have the Boba 4G and love it. It comes with an infant insert that puts baby up higher. It has great padding and a nice hood. It also comes with feet straps you can use once LO is bigger. My husband and I both use it.

  • I carried my 20 lb 21 month old for hours in the Ergo when I was 8 mos pregnant. (She hates strollers.) It also fits my husband, who is 6'2 and a former football player. He's a big guy. I don't like it for newborns, though. Couldn't figure out how to keep their head from falling on their chest and couldn't see very well if it was happening.
  • Loved my Boba4G when my DD was little.  We now have a Toddler Tula.  I'd be tempted to go the Standard Tula for a new baby since I love our Toddler so much.

  • Im about to recommend one that no one has mentioned... Tula. Hands down the most comfortable carrier me and my husband have ever tried. I lead a local babywearing group and I LOVE the Tula. Trust me on this. Its leaps and bounds above an Ergo lol. :) We had an ergo for about 8 months til I bought my tula and we honestly havent looked back.

  • We love our tula but never tried other soft structured carriers so we can't compare it to others.
  • I have an ergo and use it daily
