Buckle carriers,
also called soft structured carriers, are some of the best-selling and most popular baby carriers available. Modern buckle carriers have come a long way from the frontpack designs of Snugli and the Baby Bjorn, in both comfort and style! Combining the support of a hiking backpack with the two-shoulder ergonomics of a mei tai (Asian-style carrier), a soft structured carrier keeps baby close to your center of gravity with baby's weight distributed to your hips and shoulders.

Going beyond the frontpack design, modern buckle carriers allow baby to be carried on your front and your back, and, with some designs, your hip, too. Padded shoulder straps are worn backpack-style around your shoulders with a chest clip to help keep them from slipping. Some carriers allow straps to be crossed in an X on your back for front carries, while others are worn backpack-style for front and back carries. A firm but flexible padded hip belt helps transfer the bulk of baby's weight to your hips.

Soft structured carriers are easy for most parents to use. If you've ever used  a backpack, you can use a buckle carrier! A little practice and you'll be an old pro in no time. Buckle carriers are popular because they fasten securely with heavy-duty plastic buckles, adjust quickly with webbing straps, allow you to carry your baby comfortably and ergonomically for hours at a time, and are streamlined -- no fabric dragging on the ground.

Because they're based on familiar backpack technology, buckle carriers are daddy-friendly, too. If you want just one carrier to share between two parents, a buckle carrier is a great choice.Whether you want a simple, neutral color or a stylish and beautiful pattern, there's a buckle carrier to appeal to every taste.

Many buckle carriers can be used for newborns through toddlers without the need for another carrier. Some, such as the lillebaby COMPLETE, Boba 4G, Pikkolo and the Beco Gemini, adjust to fit newborns and small babies without an infant insert. Others are designed with a separate infant insert like the Beco Soleil carrier. For bigger and older babies and toddlers, carriers such as the lillebaby COMPLETE, Boba 4G, and Beco Soleil are extremely supportive of your growing baby's weight and are a good choice for transitioning from a ring sling, pouch, wrap,or mei tai. Have a baby who wants to see the world from your hip? The Scootababy is the best hip carrier on the market today, bar none.
