What suits you – baby sling or baby carrier?

A baby carrier and baby sling are two popular ways to carry your baby close to your body. While both methods have their advantages, there are specific reasons why a baby carrier might be a better choice for you.

Here are some advantages of a baby carrier compared to a baby sling:

  1. Easier handling: A baby carrier is usually easier to handle than a baby sling. While you have to change a baby sling, you can simply put on a baby carrier and get started. If you have any questions about carrying, we even offer you a free carrying consultation . Nothing can go wrong like this ;)

  2. More comfortable for longer wear times: If you plan to carry your baby for a long time, a baby carrier can be more comfortable. You can evenly distribute your baby's weight on both shoulders and your back, which reduces pressure on certain areas. The shoulder straps of the sandiia® baby carrier can also be fanned out, which favors weight distribution. A baby sling can sometimes be too tight or uneven and can therefore be more uncomfortable.

  3. More versatile: A baby carrier can usually be carried in a variety of ways, depending on your baby's age and needs. You can wear your baby on the front or on the back, giving you more flexibility and versatility. A baby sling usually has a limited number of ways it can be carried or requires a lot of practice and knowledge.

  4. Easy to share: A baby carrier is often easier to share than a baby sling. If you and your partner both want to carry the baby, it's easier to pass the baby carrier from one person to another than to re-wrap the baby sling each time. The sandiia® baby carrier is suitable for both women and men.

  5. Faster to create: When you're on the go and need a quick way to carry the baby, a baby carrier can be quicker and easier to put on than a baby sling. You don't have to take the time to change the sling, you can simply place the baby in the carrier and get started.

  6. Safer & more ergonomic: A baby carrier like that from sandiia® can be put on very easily and intuitively. This also ensures the safety of your baby. Tying a sling is a bit more complicated and you can do a few things wrong so that the ergonomics are no longer assured.
  7. Long service life: You can use a baby carrier longer than a baby sling, as slings will eventually no longer be able to withstand the weight of the child and will wear out. You can use the baby carrier from sandiia® until your baby weighs approx. 15 kg. For small children you can switch to our toddler carrier .

Overall, each method has its pros and cons, and it's important to choose the one that best suits your needs and preferences. However, if you're looking for a simple, comfortable, and versatile option that's also suitable for extended periods of carrying, a baby carrier can be a great choice.
