What are some alternatives to traditional baby carriers, such as ring slings or meh dais?

Hi everyone,

I'm a new mom and I've been researching different baby carriers. I've come across ring slings and meh dais, but I was wondering if there are any other alternatives to traditional baby carriers that I should consider. I'm looking for something that is comfortable for both myself and my baby, easy to use, and versatile enough to be used in different situations. I'm open to any suggestions or recommendations, so please share your experiences and insights with me. Thank you!

Hey there,

Congrats on being a new mom! I've used ring slings and meh dais for my baby and have found them to be quite helpful. However, I recently tried out a soft-structured carrier and it's become my go-to carrier. It has a structured waistband and shoulder straps, which provides good support for my back and allows me to carry my baby for longer periods of time without feeling strained. The carrier also has a few different carrying positions, which is helpful as my baby grows and becomes more active. I definitely recommend giving a soft-structured carrier a try!



As a dad, I've found the dad shirt carrier to be a great option for carrying my baby. It's a shirt with a built-in carrier that allows you to wear your baby close to your body with ease. It's discreet and doesn't scream "baby carrier", which I appreciate when I'm out and about. The carrier is designed to evenly distribute the weight of the baby across the wearer's body, which makes it comfortable for both me and my baby. I've also found that it's easy to use for short trips or when my baby needs to be soothed quickly. One downside is that it may not work well for all body types, so make sure to read the sizing chart carefully to ensure a good fit. However, overall I highly recommend the dad shirt carrier for dads who want a comfortable and convenient option for carrying their baby.


Hello there,

Congratulations on the arrival of your little one! I hope you are enjoying every bit of it. Personally, I've used a baby wrap and it has been my favorite carrier so far. It's a long piece of fabric that I wrap around my body and tie to secure my baby in different carrying positions. It takes a bit of practice to learn how to wrap it properly but once you get the hang of it, it's pretty easy to use. The fabric is also comfortable and soft, making it a great option for both myself and the baby. Plus, it can be adjusted to fit both of our body sizes, so my partner can use it as well. Overall, I highly recommend trying a baby wrap, especially if you're looking for something versatile and that can grow with your baby.


Hey there,

As a mom of two, I've tried a variety of carriers, including wraps, structured carriers, and ring slings. However, my absolute favorite has been the baby hip seat carrier. It's a hybrid carrier that provides great support while still being lightweight and portable. It has a padded shoulder strap that easily attaches to a waistband equipped with a seat for the baby to sit on. This type of carrier is perfect for short trips or quick errands when you don't want to wear a full carrier but still want to keep your baby close. The hip seat carrier has also been great for those moments when my baby wants a change of scenery and view. It's definitely worth giving it a try if you're looking for a portable and comfortable carrier option.



As a mom of three, I've tried several types of baby carriers for different situations. One carrier that has been particularly helpful with my youngest is the infantino carrier. It's a structured carrier with a seat for the baby's bottom and straps that wrap around the wearer's shoulders and waist. What I like most about this carrier is that it's relatively affordable compared to similar carriers on the market. It's also easy to use and adjust as the baby grows. The only downside is that it can be a bit bulky to carry around when not in use. Overall, if you're looking for a budget-friendly and dependable infant carrier option, I suggest considering the infantino carrier!



I'm also a new mom and have been using structured carriers, as well as wraps and ring slings. I was recently introduced to a hybrid carrier which has been a great addition to our collection. It combines the best features of a wrap and a structured carrier. It has a soft waistband and shoulder straps with a wrap-like panel that can be adjusted to fit your baby as they grow. I find it super comfortable to wear and my baby seems snug and secure. The bonus is that it folds up small enough to fit in my diaper bag, which is great for when we're on the go. If you're looking for a versatile carrier that provides both structure and flexibility, definitely give a hybrid carrier a try!
