Daddies love to babywear too, but most are not so fond of pretty flower carriers or rainbow wefts wovens. Dads unlike mums often have a flat, long torso with little to no curves. Broad shoulders and narrow hips means a buckled carrier can sit well and still allow the infant being carried to maintain a good ergonomic position. So we have chosen a selection of daddy friendly baby carriers that any man would be happy to wear.
Tula Free to Grow Carrier
The new free to grow range from Tula boasts a removable hood, padded shoulders, extra leg padding and adjustable seat width, making it ideal for newborns to toddlers. The Tula is a buckled baby carrier, which means minimal fuss for dad and maximum comfort for baby. Designed with innovative adjustable settings for width and height, the Free-to-Grow Carrier ensures proper, ergonomic positioning throughout the different stages of babies’ development.
