Mamas & Papas Morph Baby Carrier
The Morph baby carrier’s two parts — the parent harness and baby pod — allow mom or dad to easily take a sleeping baby out of the carrier without waking him. Another bonus: You put it on like a jacket, so it doesn’t take forever to readjust the straps every time. $140, BabiesRUs.com

BabyBjorn Miracle Baby Carrier
The newest carrier from BabyBjorn fits newborns without an infant insert, pillows or cushions, and can adjust to carry a baby up to 15 months old. The straps and waist belt help distribute weight evenly, and on the inside of the carrier, a tape measure keeps track of your adjustments to make sure baby is secure as she grows. $120, Amazon.com

ERGObaby Performance Baby Carrier
The new Performance line is made of lightweight and breathable fabric — perfect for keeping you and baby cool and comfortable. (But don’t be deceived: it’s super durable, too.) You can carry baby, from newborn to toddler, in different positions: in front, in back or on hip. Also, the classic ergonomic design — a favorite among Bumpies — won’t put any strain on your back or shoulders. $135, Ergobaby.com

The Moby Wrap provides plenty of support and wraps completely around your back and shoulders so baby’s weight is evenly distributed and you stay comfortable. It’s made of durable fabric and can hold babies up to 35 pounds. And if it seems complicated to wrap right, don’t worry — it comes with a detailed instruction booklet. $48, Mobywrap.com

Maya Wrap
We love that the Maya Wrap doubles as both a sling and nursing cover — so you can discreetly breastfeed right in the sling. There’s some cushioning on the shoulder for extra comfort, and all the fabric is machine-washable — so convenient! $75, Mayawrap.com

Baby K’tan Baby Carrier
This cool wrap is a hybrid of a sling and carrier, and can be worn eight different ways — great for mamas who love some variety! If you’re wary of a complicated wrapping system, fear not: there’s no wrapping required, because it’s made of two loops of fabric connected by a smaller loop; you just stretch the fabric to fit baby. $60, Babyktan.com

lillebaby Complete Baby Carrier
Just like its name — the Complete is everything you need in function, comfort and style. Wear it six different ways (from your hip to your back!) for the ultimate in baby comfort. The unique seat design adjusts to support baby in every setting from newborn to 45 lbs. $135, Amazon.com

Beco Gemini Baby Carrier
The Gemini grows with baby. It comes with a removable head rest and infant insert so you can adjust the size as baby gets bigger (and it can hold babies from seven to 35 pounds!) Wear this carrier in front, on your back, or on the side — switching it up will make it easier on your body. And to keep it clean, simply throw it in the washing machine! $130, BecoBabyCarrier.com
