BRITAX learned that parent comfort was one of the top five concerns for parents when choosing a baby carrier. Research also indicated that 86% of parents prefer the front carry position with the option of facing inward or outward. BRITAX answered with an ergonomically engineered carrier that accommodates infants through toddlers from 8 pounds up to 32 pounds in these most popular carrying positions. Woo Hoo! In addition to comfort, the Britax Baby Carrier was designed for effortless daily use. (Yes they know how busy Moms are!) The over-the-head design makes it easy to get the carrier on and off, one-handed buckles and snaps simplify getting your child in and out of the carrier, and both the harness and waist belt straps have been constructed for easy adjustment.

Adjustable head support provides head and neck stability for younger infants and leg loops create a snug fit for smaller babies. A secure harness and pouch design ensures that baby will stay securely within the carrier. And now for the Fashion moms!
