BCIA recommends the practice of babywearing as it keeps babies in the safest place possible — a parent’s arms, with baby’s face visible to the carrying adult.

Baby carriers are meant to mimic in-arms carrying positions. Your baby should be in the same position in which you would hold him in your arms. Check your baby’s position by embracing him after settling him into the carrier; his position should not shift significantly in your embrace.
