YOUR BABY’S DEVELOPMENTAL MILESTONES & THE CARRIER TO SUPPORT THEM
During a baby’s first year, they grow and develop at an astounding rate. From holding their head up to rolling over and crawling, the ages and stages of a baby’s development can help parents understand when they’re ready for certain activities, including which positions work best in a baby carrier. Following the Ages & Stages path for babywearing supports your baby through every tender and exciting stage of their development.
1st Month Milestones
From womb to world, this transition is a tender time for both parent and baby as they discover their new rhythm together. It’s a time for resting and healing.
Our newborn carriers are ultra soft and provide ergonomic support perfect for resting, snuggles, and discovering your new life together.
2-3 Month Milestones
In these months, your baby will begin lifting their head to look at you and you might even notice some smiles. They are becoming more interested in their surroundings.
The Embrace Newborn carrier and Aura Baby Wraps will continue to support you and your little one with an inward facing carry, allowing little one to see your face and the world around them while still supporting their developing neck muscles.
4-6 Month Milestones
Developmentally, your baby will be able to hold their head up and shift focus from caregivers to the outside world. They have full-color vision, can see at longer distances, and are developing more hand-eye coordination.
This is a good time to transition toour Soft Structured Carriers. Babies can now face you without an insert and as their curiosity develops, you can try short periods facing out in the carrier.
Our Soft Structured Carriers come in a variety of styles and fabric choices to support your personal preferences and fit.
6 Month Milestones & Beyond
Around 6 months your baby will begin sitting up on their own. At this point in their development, they can transition to the back carry in the Soft Structured Carriers. The back carry allows you to do tasks that might be difficult with a baby on the front. It’s a hands-free and ergonomic solution for daily adventures and errands while still keeping baby close!
These carriers are like jeans - it comes down to personal preference and fit. And like a good pair of jeans, they will last for years as your baby continues to develop and grow into a toddler.
