The Tula standard is probably the worlds most popular baby carrier coming in a dizzying array of prints. Whilst not having all the bells and whistles that other carriers might offer, they do the basics exceptionally well.

A very simple, easy to use carrier consisting of a padded waist band and padded shoulder straps. Requires infant insert to be used from 7lbs up to 6 months. This is a big carrier, so don’t be tempted to remove the infant insert too soon. 

Comes complete with a pocket integrated on the waist band.  Strong cotton canvas fabric with extra leg padding for increased comfort for baby it also comes with a removable hood.

Only two carrying positions, as the straps are fixed to the carrier so cannot be crossed which means you cannot do a hip carry. They are only adjustable in one direction, which means people with limited mobility may struggle with this carrier.

What experts say

Probably one of the best known carriers on the market with a huge fan base worldwide, they do the basics and do them well. The straps are fixed so cannot be crossed, and you can only tighten back-to-front so this won’t be the carrier for everyone. The pocket in the waistband can take a card and a small bunch of keys if you want to nip to the shops. for a smaller baby you will require an insert up until around 6 months and the carrier should last until your child is about three-years-old.

A very popular carrier, it doesn’t have many bells & whistles on but it does the basics well and comes in lots of prints which pleases the crowd.
