I love babywearing. With my first child I tried out the BabyBjorn, frequently wore him in an Ergobaby, and occasionally carried him in a fabric wrap. Now with my second, I'm loving the ring sling. No matter which baby carrying method you choose, wearing your little one can be a sweet way to bond while also being incredibly practical (hello free hands!).
But whether you're registering for must-haves for your first baby or just shopping for yourself, it can be hard to decide which carrier makes the most sense for your lifestyle without buying and trying them all. But thanks to my apparent obsession with purchasing baby gear, I already did that! Read on for tips to help you choose the best way to wear your little one and once you've found the perfect option, make sure to take note of the most common baby-wearing mistakes parents make.
