When you have a newborn it's great to have a snug baby carrier that lets you keep baby close to your heart at all times. It's comforting to your baby and much easier for you to protect the baby while you get things done around the house our out on errands.

We found that we absolutely had to find a good carrier that allowed us to carry him facing forwards otherwise he just wouldn't let use use the baby carrier any more.

There are of course many different baby carriers out there and they are all designed to work well with babies of different sizes or ages but in my experience most carriers, even the best carriers, are really only best for certain age ranges.

For instance the ErgoBaby carrier is functional for newborns and up but it's excellent for babies that are six months and older. The K'tan carrier pictured to the left however is phenomenal for newborns and small babies but as they get bigger it gets a bit less awesome.

Even still of all carriers that face out the K'tan Baby Carrier is my favorite. It's is like a Mobi Wrap that's easy to use and it's a lot cheaper then the Ergo Baby. of course these aren't the only carriers that are good for front facing babies. Lower on this page I've featured a number of alternative to my favorites some of which will be much cheaper than the others at the sacrifice of some quality or certain features.

It is attractively priced and holds babies in either direction as well as a in sling positions.
