While there's no time of year when you'd really want to tote a huge stroller around New York City, summertime has got to be the worst. Whether you're staying in the city or skipping town for a family vacation, babywearing can be a space and sanity saving solution. We reached out to babywearing guru Sarah Longwell-Stevens to round up the best tips and tricks for wearing your tot comfortably during the summer months.
- Find a carrier that you love: First things first--comfort is key. "It's hard to say, 'This one is the best carrier,'" Sarah says. "Everyone will fall in love with something different." Most carriers will fall into one of a few main types: soft-structured carriers (SSCs), wraps, ring slings and mei tais. Find a style of carrier that offers the right amount of support and suits your style. If needed, ask an expert to help you get the right fit.
