Parenting Awards baby carriers


Kelty Mijo

The Mijo is a simple, hands-free, safe and comfortable child carrier for parents on the go, whether it’s a quick run to the grocery store or a walk in the park. Kelty first introduced backpack-style child carriers to the outdoor world. Since their introduction, Kelty has refined their designs to create comfortable, easy-to-use — and most importantly, safe — child carriers.


Baby K’tan Baby Carrier

The Baby K’tan is a soft hybrid baby carrier that acts as a sling, wrap and carrier. It allows parents to secure Baby in multiple positions from birth — hands-free and without the hassle of wrapping or buckling. The secret is its unique double-loop design, which gives added security for carrying and ease of use! The Baby K’tan is lightweight and compact like a sling, yet goes over both shoulders to evenly distribute Baby's weight like a structured carrier. There’s no other carrier like it!



Innovative Ergobaby designs allow this company to offer a broad range of baby carriers and travel systems for active parents. Ergobaby offers a collection of baby carriers, including organic, sporty, performance and original, providing a cool aesthetic and superior functionality.


BabyBjorn Baby Carrier Miracle

The ergonomic waist belt and adjustable design of the BabyBjorn Baby Carrier Miracle provide optimal comfort. Easy adjustments allow you to choose how Baby’s weight is carried — on your shoulders, hips or both — giving you ultimate control and comfort. It fits your newborn perfectly with no extra insert needed and grows with your baby up to approximately 15 months... about the time they’re walking. As your baby grows, you can switch between carrying your child facing you or facing forward.

The Kelty Mijo looks really interesting. I wonder if you can jog with the baby in that, or if it bounces the baby too much?

Ergo baby and bjorn are my favorite! I like the ergo baby because the baby can be snug against your body. I used this to help my newborn fall asleep at night. My husband loves the bjorn and now we put her in that to take her on hikes and walks.
