Holding your baby against you, cradling him, reassuring him with the sound of your voice and with your smell is easier with baby carriers.

Carrying your child close to you in the African and South American tradition is becoming popular again in Western societies, but there are still a lot of misconceptions: fear of backache, fear of damaging your baby's spine and encouraging bad habits.

To find out more about carrying babies correctly, test yourself with our true/false questions.
Front or back carriers? Slings or scarves? Find out which type of baby carrier will suit you best before taking a look at our selection.

With thanks to Jill Merlet, co-founder of Red Castle.
