Baby Carriers For Men

I stumbled across this hilarious post on DaddyTypes: Does This Baby Carrier Make My Manboobs Look Big? Which laments the bad things many baby carriers to do Dad’s image and physique.  Girly fabrics are just the tip of the iceberg.

Most men feel most comfortable (ergonomically and image-wise) wearing a baby carrier with buckles.  Mei Tai baby carriers and Moby Wraps come in man-friendly colors but have a more feminine look since they are form fitting and involve draping fabric and tying bows.  While some men can own this look, most shy away from it.

The baby carriers that most men love, and use, are carriers with buckles: either the Belle Baby Carrier or the Boba Baby Carrier.  These are both ergonomic, masculine, and great for hiking.  You can stick a newborn in the Boba, but it is really designed for the 6 month- 5 year old.  It is a backpack style carrier, great for hiking or just treking around town.  The Belle Baby Carrier is a front-style carrier, great for newborns through about 1.5 years old.

You can always send your man into Bundle for a babywearing consult and demo…
