Before we jump into the list of the best baby carrier brands in Malaysia, let’s go through the elements you need to take into consideration with us first:

Factors To Consider Before Buying:

i. Age, Weight and Height

Weight limits for baby carriers can differ for every carrying position. You cannot simply carry your newborn baby in a ‘backpack-style’ as they are still unable to hold their posture. The weight limits are determined by the manufacturer after a series of testing in the laboratory, and it is important that you abide by these guidelines to ensure your baby doesn't suddenly fall off the carrier while you’re taking them out. For example, Ergobaby's recommended maximum weight limit for its carrier is 20kg while Infantino’s baby carrier can hold up to only 14kg.

ii. Comfort

We are all aware of the ergonomic positions for our posture. This is especially important for your baby, because ignoring it can bring pain for their spinal and hip development. A comfortable and ergonomic carrier should have a wide seat base to support their legs from knee to knee, with the knees positioned higher than their bottom at about the height of the belly button. This will form a ‘M’ position, allowing the baby to swing their legs freely

iii. Materials

The materials of the carrier depends on the carrier types. For example, muslin is a great material for wrap carriers due to it being breathable, lightweight and thermoregulating. Generally, cotton will be the number one choice because it is soft and friendly to the skin. You can also look for carriers with mesh fabric to offer ventilation and breathability to keep your baby cool on a hot day.

iv. Portability

When you’re in a rush, do you really have time to set up the complicated and difficult carriers? Wraps carrier is one of the simplest baby carriers, consisting only of one long strip of material that will be wrapped securely around you and your baby. If you’re not a fan of having something tightly tied to your body, slings may be the next best options. Just like wrap, it uses one long strip of materials, only with the addition of two rings at one end to secure your baby by pulling the other end of the sling through the two rings. But what if you cannot master these skills quickly? Then, you should go for buckle or soft-structured carriers, where the only assistance you may need is when you want to clip in the back straps!

v. Carrying Positions

There are several types of carrying positions; inward-facing, outward-facing, side/hip carry and back carry, each differing in terms of the baby’s age and comfort. If you’re looking for a carrier that can be used for a long time throughout your baby’s growth, the ‘All-in-one’ baby carrier will be perfect for you!

In short, simply follow the TICKS rules when you’re trying out the baby carriers.

T - Tight
I - In View at All Times
C - Close Enough To Kiss
K - Keep Chin Off The Chest
