Which Baby Carrier is Easiest to Use

Soft baby wraps such as Boba, Moby wraps, or even slings can be completely tied and adjusted before you attempt to put the baby inside, which frees up your hands for a safe transfer. Not to mention the fact that they’re much easier to tuck your sleeping baby into and maneuver around the house as they rest.
