Which Baby Carrier is Best for me?

There is no BEST carrier for everyone. Everyone has a different body build with different needs and expectations of carriers. Only upon trying out will you know which is best for you and baby.

Should I try carriers before buying?
Definitely! It is advisable to try it out first before buying so as to get a feel of the carrier you are eyeing on and understand whether the carrier fits your expectations.

Is trying on the spot accurate?
Yes and no. Yes because you can roughly get an idea of whether the structure of carrier is what you are looking for. No because baby may fuss on the spot and leave you wondering whether baby really suit the carrier you have chosen. Most of the times baby fuss due to fear (first time in a carrier) and discomfort (diapers not changed, warm weather or incorrect sitting position) rather than a direct answer to you that they are rejecting the carrier.

Should I rent to try for a week or two?
It is your choice whether to rent or to take a risk and see whether baby fits well and wearer is comfortable. Benefits of renting includes the reduction of chance having a white elephants at home and increasing the confidence of wearer as teaching will be provided.

Are carriers that are rented clean for use?
Yes. Hygiene of carriers are maintained after every rent and that is also why we need 2-3 days of in-between rent times to let it fully dry before handing over to the next rentee.

I cannot come down for fitting, can I opt for courier?

If I opt for courier, how would I know if I wore my child correctly?
Normally, if the carrier you chose has an official video link, it will be sent via private message. Otherwise, if you are unsure, you can seek advise by taking a photo of how you wear and private message at the page.

Are there ways to learn other than renting?
Yes, BABYWEARING WORKSHOPS will be conducted once a month or alternate months depending on schedule of certified babywearing consultant from Warabee (https://www.facebook.com/WarabeeHS).
