The Complete New-Mom Registry (& What You REALLY Don’t Need)

2. Need: Baby Carrier
Babywearing has a number of benefits, including less crying, promoting attachment, and convenience for parents. It allows you to carry your baby hands free and close to you, which can provide important balance if you're also using a travel system.

There are three main types of baby carriers: wraps, slings, and structured carriers. Go ahead and register for one you like, and if it doesn't end up working for you or your baby, you can always trade it in for a style that does.
