Mumsnet has been helping to make parents' lives easier since 2000, and in those years we’ve seen, tried and reviewed countless numbers of baby carriers. Baby wearing is a trend that is here to stay, and we’re not surprised as it offers a hands-free approach to many aspects of parenting. It is multitasking at its finest, and makes swerving through busy shops with a buggy a thing of the past.

Each of our carriers has been tested thoroughly by real life parents, dealing with real parenting situations.

They have been tested for practicality, comfort, quality, ease of changing positions, solo wearing and the presence of extra features like head covers and supports.

The carriers we tested have been taken on holiday, on hikes, on school runs, on the underground, on days out and worn around the house. They have been used for naptime, during fussy periods and at times, simply just to get things done.
