6 Ways to Babywear From Newborn to Toddler

Snuggle baby hands-free with these baby carrier positions that adjust with your child (and your lifestyle).

A baby carrier provides the best of both worlds—a comfy way to hold your precious cargo and the convenience of hands-free living. Not to mention, the benefits are huge: Keeping baby close for longer encourages bonding and helps babies feel calmer and less likely to fuss. But depending on the activity, sometimes you want options. The beauty of a flexible carrier like the LÍLLÉbaby COMPLETE is that it offers six ergonomic ways to lift the weight of the world from your shoulders (not to mention back and neck). With an adjustable panel and neck support, the carrier can grow with baby from 7 all the way up to 45 pounds. See our handy guide to each position below, plus tips for when and how to use each one.
