Babywearing is love. You have probably heard this saying before. But is it true? Whether in a baby carrier or in a ring sling, carrying your baby supports healthy physical and psychological development of your child. By carrying your baby, you strengthen the emotional bond between you. So it's not only practical because you have your hands free, but it also promotes intimacy between you and your baby. You are always close to each other and this has been proven to help you recognise your baby's needs faster, responding to them immediately.
Another positive effect of babywearing is its influence on the child's physical development. For example, carrying your baby correctly in the M-position can promote healthy hip development and stimulate blood flow to the lumbar region, back and abdomen. In addition, carrying your baby can also help with or prevent gas and colic. Plus, importantly in pandemic times, carrying protects against infection.
From what age and what weight can I carry my child?
With our baby carriers you can usually carry your child from birth. With the DidyTai you can carry a tender newborn, but for all others your child should weigh at least 3.5 kg. If your child already weighs more than 3.5 kg at birth, the DidySnap 4u as well as the DidyKlick and the DidyKlick 4u are also suitable as newborn carriers.
An exception is the DidyGo: This should only be used from about 7 kg or from sitting age.
All baby carriers from DIDYMOS can carry up to about 20 kg and have an adjustable bar for the optimal fit.
What are the different baby carriers?
A baby carrier is a popular alternative to slings and comes in many varieties. They all combine the basic "components", namely two straps, a panel or back piece and a hip belt. Further, we distinguish between the technical terms wrap conversion, halfbuckle carrier and fullbuckle carrier. At DIDYMOS we offer four different baby carrier models, which in turn are available in different colors and patterns: DidyKlick, DidyKlick 4u, DidySnap 4u, DidyTai and DidyGo.
Which is the best baby carrier for you and your child? That is very individual.
The DidyKlick is a practical halfbuckle carrier, which is attached with just one click thanks to the hip belt. Its little sister, the DidyKlick 4u, also has an ergonomic strap.
The DidySnap 4u with ergonomic hip belt is a fullbuckle carrier with two attachment systems for optimal support and ergonomic fit.
The DidyTai is a cross between a sling and a baby carrier. The carrier offers many individual adjustment options and all without snaps, buckles or Velcro.
The DidyGo is an onbuhimo carrier that does not require a waist belt. It is the perfect carrier for older babies and toddlers.
What carrying positions can I use with the DIDYMOS carriers?
Depending on the age of your child, you can either carry your child centred on front of your torso, on your hip or on your back with your DIDYMOS baby carrier. While carrying centred on front is especially suitable for newborns and babies who need a lot of closeness and care, carrying on the hip is recommended for older babies who would like to see and experience more of your world. Once your baby has gained stable head control, you can tie your baby carrier to your back. This way, the weight is better distributed and you have complete freedom of movement in the front - perfect even if you have back pain.
We show you how to do it in our video tutorials.
What is the difference between a baby carrier and a sling?
The sling is a long piece of fabric that needs to be tied and knotted and definitely requires some practice and time to put on. Handling a baby carrier is usually a little easier to learn and the handling is faster and less complicated. Many parents therefore prefer a baby carrier to a sling.
Are you wondering which is better: a sling or a baby carrier?
There is no one-size-fits-all answer here, because the best baby carrier is the one with which you and your baby feel most comfortable.
What do I have to consider when wearing a baby carrier in summer and winter?
In the sweltering summer or the bone-chilling winter, parents often ask themselves what they should wear with the baby carrier in summer and winter and how they can protect their baby from rough weather such as rain, wind and UV rays.
Basically, the baby carrier replaces one layer of clothing. In winter you can wear your child under a baby carrier jacket, for example, in summer you can use our BabyDos and be sure to wear a sun hat.
More information about carrying in summer and winter can be found in our carrying guide.
