We update this post regularly to try to make it as helpful for you as possible. If you’d like us to add a group, or remove a defunct one, please just let us know in the comments. Thank you so much for helping us make this the most useful list we can for you! Happy babywearing!

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.
