Types of carriers

There are many different carriers on the market, but in a typical high-street shop you only find a few carriers, and they usually are very similar to each other. So here is an overview of the different types of carriers I know. I've also tried to summarise information about different carrier types in a comparison chart.
Ideally you try a carrier before you buy one because different people have different needs and what's working well for one person may be awful to use for another person.

Here you'll find information about different types of carriers:

    1. Stretchy Wraps
    2. Woven Wraps
  2. Ring Slings
  3. Mei Tais
  4. Soft Structured Carriers (SSCs)
