Do you have a baby and are planning to take them on a trip around the world? Sounds fun! Traveling with a baby is an amazing experience for the whole family, and especially for new parents. 

The benefits of traveling with a baby carrier are obvious: there’s no need to carry a heavy stroller, your baby is close to you, and your hands are free to eat, look at the map, and take full photos for Instagram. But how to choose the perfect baby carrier?


First, try to figure out what your budget is. How much do you want to spend on a baby carrier, and how much traveling are you planning to do in the coming year.

Do a comprehensive online study. Read reviews from other parents, find out how safe the baby carrier is and how durable it is.


Try to understand what your needs are on the trip. Do you travel to a city or take a hike in nature? Do you plan to carry a lot of equipment or you only need a small backpack and that’s it? All of these will dictate what type of carrier you should buy.
