Baby Tula offers options to wear children fro 3,2 kg to 31,8 kg! Our carriers make it possible to carry children comfortably as long as you both need it. Most people find Tula in the infant stage, though, where there is quite a bit to choose from. What carrier do you choose for your newborn baby? We are here to help!
Your baby carrier for newborn should facilitate the natural position that baby takes on your body outside of a carrier. It is simply replacing your arms around your baby on your chest. A newborn naturally rests on a caregiver's chest with their spine rounded, their pelvis tucked, and their knees higher than their bottom. All of our newborn options support this. You will notice that our baby carriers for newborn support baby's torso so that they do not slump down. This is critical to prevent a chin to chest position. All of our carriers facilitate an easier to execute "legs out" position in the carrier. You do not have to worry about positioning baby's legs for them or about baby having weight on their legs. This all goes back to honoring baby's natural position.
Here are Baby Tula's options for best baby carrier for newborn:
Free-To-Grow Baby Carrier
The Free-To-Grow is our very first infant buckle carrier not to need an infant insert. It is fully adjustable in both height and width to support a newborn baby starting at 3,2 kg. Our community loves the simplicity of this baby carrier for newborn and how the single layer of fabric on your baby feels close to the experience of a woven wrap or sling. This newborn carrier is intuitive to use and has a streamlined, minimalist look to it. When baby is older and ready, you can also use this carrier for back carrying.
Explore Baby Carrier
The Tula Explore Baby Carrier is our first carrier to offer a world-facing position! This feature will not impact your newborn wearing experience as that stage comes later. The Explore is fully adjustable in width and height and can also accommodate a newborn starting at 3,2 kg. Explore features an innovative body panel with smooth moldable padding to help support all carrying positions. This baby carrier for newborn also offers a moveable support pillow for newborns with little to no head or neck control. After the newborn stage, you can use this carrier for baby to face out or for a back carry.
Ergonomic Standard Baby Carrier
Our Standard Tula is the carrier that started it all. It has been a fan favorite for over a decade. To use our Standard Tula with a newborn, you will also have to include our infant insert. Our infant insert provides the necessary lateral support and boost to get baby visible and kissable in the carrier. While the minimum weight to use the Standard Tula without an insert is 7 kg, you may find that your baby does not fit the carrier quite yet at that point. Many families find that the infant insert is necessary for fit for 6 months. There is no substitute for using the infant insert, but your Standard Tula is so generously sized that it might be the only carrier you ever need! Why might someone choose one of our adjustable carriers over the tried and true Standard? Some families find that the addition of the infant insert adds more warmth than they would like. Using the Standard + Insert combo also means that your carrier is in two parts for a while. With all the things to think about during that newborn brain fog, you would not want to forget your insert at home! Read more about the infant insert here.
