Wrap and Tie Your Baby On With Infantino's Newest Carrier


Now that I have three young kids and only two arms, a baby carrier is a necessity. Whether a mom prefers a sling or a carrier, it's bound to make life at the park, running errands, and helping the children easier. I'm going to search out the best options and report back. Infantino sent me its newest Wrap&Tie Infant Carrier ($40) to put to the test.
Who is this product designed for? This carrier is best for a first-time mother who doesn't mind that securing the baby in takes a bit of time and a little practice.
Is it practical? The three-in-one design allows a woman to carry her child on her back or in front facing in or out. It is also made of a washable cotton (available in cute prints!) that makes for easy cleanup if the fabric gets soiled.
What sets it apart? The carrier is buckle-less and attaches to the adult by simply tying knots in the fabric. This makes it great for accommodating to any parent's body shape. Since there's plenty of material, it's ideal for those with larger builds. It also has a sturdy but soft construction that provides support and comfort for the baby.
To see what could be improved and if I'd buy it, .
What could be better? The excess fabric that hangs after tying on the carrier can get in the way. Especially if you have other lil ones who might tug on it.
Would I buy it? No. I need a carrier that allows me to quickly secure my baby so I can tend to my other children in parking lots and the like.
Would I give it as a gift? At $40, this is a nice baby shower gift for a first-time mother who likes the comfort of a sling but the carrier style. It also has longevity since it holds children up to 35 pounds.
Did it make baby happy? My 4-month-old son hung around in it for an hour without complaint.
Does it keep your hands free? Yes.


Parents should take precautions when using any baby carrier.

I love my Hanamuguri baby carrier, i just bought it on Amazon and I can't say enough about it. It's amazing! and affordable! You can wear the baby multiple ways, it's simple and very easy to use. Slip over your head and pop the baby in, and that's it! You're done! It's compact too, it folds into a tiny little square when not in used.

Do I really need to point out what's wrong with this phrase? "The three-in-one design allows a woman to carry her child..." Let's encourage our male partners to participate in every part of oarenting, especially and including babywearing. By the way I'm a huge an of the Ergo carrier, which is like a more padded and structured version of this one. I just bought the Infantino for sale on woot.com, so we'll see...

I am using this with my 1 month old and love it. I respectfully disagree with the author. I think it is easy to put on and easy to secure. I got it right first try. One thing I do, if we aregoing to the store, I put it on at the house so when we get to the store I just have to put the baby in and tie in the front.

I bought this recently because my 4 month old no longer liked laying in her ring sling (which was awesome the first 4 months!) but wanted to be carried upright. I tried it with her facing me and she was really uncomfortable, I would assume because her legs had to be wrapped around my waist which isn't large, but come on, she's a little baby, not a 3 year old. So, I tried it with her facing forward and she loved it so much that she fell asleep in it and I had her in it for about 2 hours. She really likes it. The only complaint I have is I wonder if I am putting it on wrong since the front around her chest droops forward quite a bit? It just looks weird so I have to keep my hand on her head when she falls asleep so that her chin isn't in her chest. I really like this thing! Very cute, comfortable, portable, not stuffy & constricting.

I have my own meitai carrier as well as my own ring slings, and I find them both invaluable, and I don't leave home without them! I HATE structured carriers as they leave me and baby very uncomfortable. I would highly recommend giving this carrier a try!

By the way, you can also use these for a hip carry, so four positions. I'd take the Mei Tai or BabyHawk over this one though simply because of the loops on the side. I like to be able to move the straps as needed.

I find these type carriers (Mei Tai, Babyhawk, etc) MUCH easier to secure and position than a sling. I just secure the baby before the other kids get out of the car if that's an issue. Plus it grows with the child and offers support in so many ways. I use them even when my kids are like three years old and need a lift for awhile, whereas I can't do that with a sling. As far as the extra fabric from the ties, just tuck it into the body of the carrier and you're good to go. Or rather than tie it like in the picture, twist it around itself and bring it back around your back again (or to the front if you're using a back carry), which will not only offer more security and support but also clears up the length.
