Q:

Can anyone recommend a good baby carrier for plus-size parents?

Hi everyone,

I'm a plus-size mom-to-be and I'm currently on the hunt for a good baby carrier that can accommodate my size. I want to make sure that I can carry my baby around comfortably without any strain on my back or shoulders.

Are there any plus-size parents out there who can recommend a carrier that worked well for them? Any specific features I should be looking for? I've heard some carriers have adjustable straps that can be helpful for accommodating different body sizes but I'm not sure which ones those are.

Any advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hey there,

As a plus-size parent myself, I highly recommend the Boba X baby carrier. It has adjustable straps that are long enough to fit comfortably around my waist and shoulders without any discomfort. I also love that the seat can be adjusted to fit babies from 7 to 45 pounds, so I can continue to use it as my baby grows.

The Boba X also has a wide waistband that distributes the weight evenly across my hips, which has been a huge relief for my back and shoulders. Plus, the carrier itself is made with soft, breathable fabric that keeps both me and my baby comfortable during longer periods of wear.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions.

Hello,

As a plus-size mama, I highly recommend the LILLEbaby Complete All Seasons baby carrier. It has adjustable straps and buckles that worked perfectly fine for me. The carrier supports babies from 7-45 pounds, meaning you can use it for months and years.

The waistband is also wide and really supportive, and the thickly padded straps distribute the weight evenly across my shoulders, neck, and back. I can use it for hours without feeling any discomfort.

The LILLEbaby Complete All Seasons carrier is also designed to keep you and your baby cool by allowing for excellent airflow. And if it gets colder outside, you can simply zip-up the center panel to keep both you and your baby warm.

One feature that I really like about this carrier is the adjustable neck support for your baby, which comes in handy when they fall asleep or need more support for their head and neck. Additionally, it offers six different carrying positions giving you more flexibility to choose the one that suits you and your baby.

In summary, the LILLEbaby Complete All Seasons carrier is a great and versatile carrier that provides the best comfort for you and your baby. I hope it helps you make a decision.

Hello,

I wanted to share my experience using the Baby K'tan Active Baby Carrier. As a plus-size mom, I struggled to find a carrier that fit me comfortably until I discovered the Baby K'tan.

The Baby K'tan comes in different sizes based on your actual clothing size, which is really helpful to make sure you get the right fit. The carrier uses stretchy fabric that is breathable and moisture-wicking - which is great for active parents who are always on the move with their baby.

The carrier has no buckles or straps to adjust, which may sound intimidating, but it is actually easy to put on and take off. The wrap can be used for multiple carrying positions and the carrier is suitable for babies starting from birth up to 35lbs.

For me, the Baby K'tan provided the solution to an uncomfortable and stressful experience with other carriers. The wrap-style provided great support for my lower back and the soft and flexible fabric hugged my baby's body snugly. I was able to carry my baby for hours without any discomfort, thanks to the weight distribution feature of the wrap.

If you're looking for a comfortable and easy-to-use wrap carrier specifically for plus-size parents, you won't be disappointed with the Baby K'tan Active Baby Carrier.

Hey there,

I'm also a plus-size parent and I have been using the Tula Explore carrier for my baby. It has adjustable shoulder straps and waistband that work perfectly fine for me. The carrier fits my baby securely, and I'm able to adjust its height to make sure their head and neck are well supported.

The waistband is wide enough to distribute the weight evenly across my hips and the straps are padded, which makes carrying my baby for long hours comfortable. The Tula Explore carrier also has a breathable material that makes it perfect for warmer weather.

The best part about the Tula Explore is that it allows for multiple carrying positions- forward-facing, back-carrying, or even hip-carrying. With multiple carrying positions, I can switch from one position to another easily and avoid straining my back or shoulders by changing positions.

Overall, I will recommend the Tula Explore carrier to any plus-size parent looking for a comfortable and adjustable baby carrier.

Hi,

As a plus-size mom, I would like to recommend the Ergobaby Omni 360 carrier. I've been using it for a few weeks now and I have to say that it's a really great baby carrier option for plus-size parents. The waistband is extremely comfortable and supportive, which takes the weight off my chest and back. I'm able to carry my baby around for hours without feeling any pain.

The shoulder straps of this carrier are padded and adjustable, which means I can adjust it to fit my shoulder perfectly and distribute the weight evenly. The carrier is also made of a soft and breathable fabric that makes both my baby and I comfortable, even during hotter days.

Overall, I would highly recommend this carrier to any plus-size parent who wants to carry their baby around without any discomfort. Plus, the adjustable features make it a great option for different body types.
