One of the main reasons I always loved babywearing — besides having both hands free, which is the clear winner — is that cool baby carriers can be a stylish way for new moms to accessorize, especially when we’re not always feeling so fabulous in our regular clothes. ¬†So we went looking for some cool baby carriers to help dress up the new mamas out there, and we’re loving four fun,¬†stylish options we found. They’re great for those of you with newborns or a shower on your calendar.

Lillebaby limited edition Tokidoki Rebel carrier: Cool baby slings

We’ve been big fans of L√ćLL√Čbaby for years, and we were so excited to hear that they partnered with tokidoki to create the¬†all-season¬†tokidoki Rebel baby carrier¬†(above). L√ćLL√Čbaby carriers are super comfy, with¬†six carrying positions and a temperature-control panel that unzips to reveal breathable mesh for warmer weather.. Of course this fabulous, limited print is only available a at some¬†small¬†online boutiques that still have stock,¬†if you’ve got to have it now and you’re willing to pay a little extra.

Cool baby carriers: The Rockin' Baby Pouch is one of our longtime favorites

We’re also longtime fans of Rockin’ Baby Slings and their cool¬†pouches and slings. They keep coming out with great new prints¬†including ones to let dads get in on the babywearing action too. But they’ve kept their awesomely smart, simple design that helps even a jittery new mom feel secure wearing her baby. I especially love the great floral patterns for spring like this One Rose reversible baby pouch, with¬†a draped sling fabric that¬†does double duty as a nursing cover. And Rockin’ Baby is¬†still doing good work with mothers around the world, donating a¬†Hero Sling to a mother¬†in Haiti or Kenya with each pouch or sling purchased.


Cool baby carriers: The Hotslings adjustable pouch carrier in lots of great styles

If you love the pouch style carrier¬†but prefer a more understated print, check out the¬†Hotslings adjustable baby pouches. Instead of a zipper, like the Rockin’ Baby pouch, these carriers use hidden straps and buckles to change the size of the pouch. Same function, just a matter of personal preference. They also have video instructions on site to help ensure you’ve got the fit right for your baby’s age and size. Sorry, no¬†video instructions for getting babies to sleep through the night.


Cool baby carriers: Gorgeous ring slings at Oscha Slings

If you’re a ring sling fan, we¬†found¬†some gorgeous options for you too, in the new ring slings at Oscha Slings¬†which blow us away. (Also shown at very top) The colors and patterns are so elegant, with lots of jewel tones and subtle prints. I also really like the variety of luxury fabrics, including bamboo, linen, an organic¬†pima cotton, and¬†an Egyptian combed wool-blend. The one drawback is that these beautiful slings ship from Scotland, so be prepared to pay some hefty shipping fees. But wow, what a¬†dressy accessory to help a new mom feel pretty¬†— and like no other mom in her new mom playgroup.
