Types of Baby Carriers – Soft Structured or Backpack Style

My Daughter in the Deuter Kid Comfort II Welcome! If you’re looking for a baby carrier, you’ve come to the right place.

There are two main types of baby carriers, Soft Structured Carriers, and Backpack Style Child Carriers. This website is designed to show you your options, and help you make a decision.

I have NOT tried and tested all of the baby carriers on this website, however, I have done the research so that you don’t have to.

I’ve read the reviews and compiled lists of both positive and negative feedback. I’ve compared features, and prices. In some cases, I’ve even contacted the manufacturers for additional information. I try to give you the most information possible, so that you can make an educated decision about which baby carrier will suit your needs best.

I have not been paid for any of my reviews, the opinions and findings within this website are all my own. I understand that some of you may have your own opinion, I hope you do, and I strongly suggest that you leave a comment saying so. The more information provided to my readers, the better.
