I have long raved about the Action Baby Carrier in the babywearing world. It's truly one of my favorites! Not only is it super reasonably priced, but it's super duper simple, lightweight and supportive.
The Action Baby Carrier is a baby carrier that can be used front, back and hip with babies 8lbs - 40 lbs. You will only need one carrier from newborn to toddlerhood. When wearing your baby on the front in the Action Baby Carrier, you criss cross the straps over your back to make it comfy and supportive. When wearing the baby carrier on your back, use the chest strap the secure the carrier.
I recommend the Action Baby Carrier as a summertime option for babywearing because it is so lightweight. The body of the carrier is completely unpadded which allows for more breathability....hopefully keeping mom (or dad) and baby a little bit cooler!
The Action Baby Carrier is one of the few baby carriers that are made in the USA. Action Baby Carriers is truly a "mom and pop" operation, so when you purchase an ABC, you're supporting a small business, but more importantly, a hard working family business! Heavenly Hold, also a family owned/run business stocks all prints and colors of the Action Baby Carrier and ships them for free all over the US.
