What You Need to Know about Buying a Baby Carrier
Baby carriers are not only a great way to bond with your baby, but they are essential for busy moms and dads in need of two free hands. Here are some of our helpful tips for using and buying a baby carrier:
Things to consider before you buy:
Be sure that you can get in and out of the carrier without assistance. You won’t always have someone with you to help, and it’s better to make sure you can easily get the carrier on and off by yourself! The Jeep 2-in-1 Sport Baby Carrier’s self-adjusting straps make it easy to use this carrier alone.
Consider the weather. If you plan on using this carrier during the warm summer months or mostly inside, breathable fabrics or mesh areas will help keep both you and baby comfortable.
The proper support is essential, especially if you plan on using your carrier for extended periods of time. Wide padded shoulder straps or additional lumbar support can help distribute the baby’s weight evenly.
Determining how and when you plan on using your carrier is essential for selecting the right one. If you want to use your carrier with an infant, ensure that you have the proper head support. Grow-with-me features, such as adjustable seat and leg openings, enable you to use this carrier with older infants.
Check the carrier’s weight limits. Some carriers are more suited for a newborn, while others can easily transition for older infants, offering you the option to use the carrier longer.
Tips for using your new carrier safely:
To ensure that you are wearing your baby in the proper place, make sure that you can kiss the top of your little one’s head.
If your baby is facing you, check often that the baby’s head and neck are supported.
Read the instructions to ensure that you are following weight and age requirements.
The Jeep 2-in-1 Sport Carrier gives you the freedom to go anywhere with your baby close by. The forward facing option and adjustable seat and leg openings accommodate a growing baby, while the mesh window and wide padded shoulder straps offer you comfort and support.
