Baby Carriers from around the Globe

We love baby carriers because they allow you to keep little ones close while having free hands for doing chores, running errands, and blogging! It's all inspired, however, by cultures where it's an absolute necessity to carry babies while doing other tasks or leading a nomadic lifestyle:

Above, we've pictured a few baby carriers from cultures that have inspired our wraps, slings, and soft structured carriers:

1: Africa
2: a Peruvian manta
3: Laos
4: Thailand
5: South Africa

What looks most comfortable to you? Any you'd like to try out for yourself?
