When looking for a great fit in a wrap, sling, or baby carrier, trying and comparing different carriers is really the only way to know which carrier fits you and your baby best. Our suggestion? Find a local babywearing group to try different wraps, slings and baby carriers in person. So, in our effort to help you fond your best baby carrier, here’s a handy list with links to all of the regional babywearing groups that we know of, both within North America and internationally.
