As Cortney shares, the perfect carrier is the one that fits you best! One carrier might be your best friend’s favorite but not work for you. It’s ideal to try different styles of carriers until you find the one that’s perfect for you.

Thankfully more and more brands are size-friendly!

Here’s a resource where you can see all of our recommended carriers for plus size babywearing. Below are some examples for you to see plus size moms wearing different carriers.

Wraps are also great for hands free nursing! My little guy is on the way but not fully wanted yet. There are times he'll want milk and I'll have things I need to do. A front wrap cross carry tied at the shoulder is a great way for us to keep the peace and sometimes even get a wrap nap. Most of the wraps and slings featured today are @bijoubabywearing Just in case anyone wanted to know. . . . . . #plussizebabywearing #babywearing #babywearersofinstagram #postpartumbody #postpartumfashion #motherhoodthroughinstagram #plussizepregnancy #plussizeandpregnant #plussizemama #plussizemom #wovenwrap #babywrap #babycarrier #ringsling #ringslings #babywearingforeverybody #wearallthebabies #momlife #babywearingmama #postpartum #plussizefashion #ig_baby #ig_motherhood #attachmentparenting

Babywearing New Mexico

I started working as a doula in 2012, and shortly after that, worked in a retail store which sold baby carriers, among other things. While on staff there, a co-worker encouraged me to take the Center for Babywearing Studies introductory educator’s course. I did and found a wealth of knowledge and a new sense of purpose that could go hand in hand with my doula work.

I enjoyed integrating babywearing group classes and private consultations into my work on the East Coast, but when the time came to move, I dreamed of my home state of New Mexico. I was ready to take my babywearing education career and make it something more. Noticing a strong babywearing community, but a lack of network between spread out groups, as well as gaps in accessibility and resource on many levels, I wanted to create a collaborative, culturally mindful, and fluid space, full of flexibility and growth together. The idea grew into a formal organization in 2015 and since then has grown and evolved and I cannot wait to see where we go from here.
