Close Baby Carrier: Our Review

The Close Baby Carrier has the softness and closeness of the Mei Tai and Sling world, but comes with the added safety and security which people look for in the Soft Structured Carrier world. No buckles or clips and an easily adjustable ring mechanism keeps the baby snug and secure and holds them tight as they grow.
Close Baby’s Carrier is a real favourite in the press, Pregnancy & Birth Magazine scored it 9/10, complementing it’s value for money, and its usability around the home. Mother & Baby magazine awarded it the Best Value prize and gave it 4 stars, the reviewer said it was the only Carrier in which her baby slept in, and claimed it could easily be fitted with your eyes closed (I wouldn’t recommend this, but each to their own!)

The Close Baby Carrier is a carrier that quite simply gives your baby a lovely bear hug! The soft organic cotton cradles your little one’s head, neck, back and bottom. It has wide soft straps which sit comfortably on the wearer’s shoulders and evenly distribute the baby’s weight for added comfort. Versatility is also paramount with the Close Baby Carrier and depending on your preference and the size and likes of your baby there are five different carrying positions available.
With there being no buckles or framework the Carrier, this folds up neatly and compactly and you can pop it away in the organic drawstring pouch, which when not in use you can use for added support by wearing it in a cumber band style or wear it as a shawl for discrete breastfeeding support.

The Close Baby Carrier is so simple to put on, you just pop it over your head like you would a T-shirt

The Close Baby Carrier is so simple to put on, you just pop it over your head like you would a T-shirt, and probably one of the easiest carriers out there to adjust with its one handed ring system.
As with a lot of these professionally made baby carriers this comes with a DVD with a lady doing the ‘safety demo – airline style’, these are SO useful at first but after a few goes, popping the carrier on and off and fitted baby will become like second nature.
I suppose the only downside of this carrier is that it can be very hot, both for you and baby, as it is like wearing another rather tight layer of clothing, but in the British climate this will rarely be a problem, and the snugness and warmness the Baby Close Carrier offers will be a huge benefit for you and baby.
