    ErgoBaby Sport Carrier

    Perfect for on-the-go summer vacations, the ErgoBaby Sport Carrier is designed to keep baby and parent cooler with a blend of cotton and polyester fabrics. And with a waistband that adjusts from 30 inches to 48 inches, it’s a perfect choice for more than one parent or caregiver to share. ($105; ergobabycarriers.com)

    phil&teds Pepe

    We love the one-handed loading and adjustment and the silky New Zealand merino wool that is anti-microbial, washable and excellent at regulating body temperature. ($80; toysrus.com)

    Babywearing coat by Lilies of the Valley

    Morph by Mamas and Papas

    One of our favorite new baby-gear makers is throwing their hat into the babywearing ring. The Morph has a molded pod that offers support but is still breathable. And forget the learning curve, the Morph goes on and off like a jacket. (coming in April, $150; mamasandpapas.com)

    BabyBjörn Comfort Carrier

    Finally a Björn for the toddler set! The new Comfort Carrier’s adjustable waist belt transfers your child’s weight to your hips, letting you go hands-free from 3 months until about age 2. And depending on your baby’s age and size, the leg holes adjust for a perfect fit. ($200; giggle.com)

    Infantino EcoSash

    We love that the EcoSash just wraps and ties, meaning there are no complicated buckles to figure out. Baby can ride in front, facing you or forward, or be carried on your back. Plus, it’s easy to clean: Simply put the carrier in the provided mesh bag and throw in the washer. ($60; babiesrus.com)

    Belle Organic Jubilee Carrier

    Count Angelina Jolie and Jessica Alba among the fans of Belle baby carriers. The design promotes bonding because no fabric separates baby from parent. Belle’s washable carrier is made of organic cotton with hemp-blend straps. ($110; bellebabycarriers.com)

    BabyHawk

    The folks at BabyHawk know that all moms are different and allow you to custom-order one of their soft structure mei tai carriers to suit your own personal style. Pick your fabric, your strap color and add to cart! A mei tai (pronounced “may tie”) is basically a rectangular piece of fabric with straps on all four corners. Wrap and tie the straps to get a perfect fit. (Starting at $80; babyhawk.com)

    Moby Wrap

    Moby moms (celebs Brooke Shields and Elisabeth Hasselbeck included) swear by these wrap-style baby carriers. While there is a slight learning curve for using the Moby, it’s worth the effort. The snug wrap evenly distributes baby’s weight, making for a comfy (and secure) carry for everyone. (Starting at $40; mobywrap.com)
