Human babies are parent clingers, they love to be carried. That's why humans have always been looking for ways of carrying their babies and toddlers around with them, ideally while having both hands free and preventing backache. That's how the sling was invented, which has now once more become a real alternative to the baby front carrier or back carrier. The big advantage of a baby sling is its versatility. With the right tying technique, you can use a baby sling to carry your baby on your front, on your back or on your hip. Plus it can be flexibly adapted to children of any age.
