Every mother knows that a baby carrier is one of the first things that one should consider when buying their baby stuff. However it can be quite easy to forget about it during the process of tons of administration that you have to handle during and after the pregnancy.
Dads Love Carriers...
Carriers and fathers have become the best of friends the past two years, dad's have become comfortable and wearing a "daddy carrier" with pride, it is somehow become a very stylish and trendy thing to do. Most pictures labelled 'cute' have been of dads and their babies in the carrier. Plus, I figure the dad's can agree with me when I say that they would much rather have a baby carrier than putting the baby on the back using a towel or blanket, because with a carrier - they can either choose to do it on the back or on the chest.
Why Is It So Life Changing?
Not only is it great because you get to be hands-free, it is absolutely amazing because it's very easy to use. Okay! I will be honest, some baby carriers look like the most complicated thing ever, almost like a mosquito net 😅🙈 but once you get the hang of it, it is the best thing since sliced bread.
For the stylish mum and dad, carrier makers have become quite innovative in making sure that the bring fashion into the mix, making use of unique shapes, colours, patterns and tying techniques.
Now let's take a look at stores in Joburg where you can find this amazing life changing product... cuteness overload.
Let's start off by acknowledging the cuteness of this name, Noonoo Pie. Sounds absolutely adorable, and best believe that their baby carriers are just as adorable.

Ubuntu Baba is the best baby carrier spot if you want to get bigger sizes too. They have really cool options and colours.
This cuteness overloaded place is situated in Cape Town, but does however have an online purchase option.
