Hi moms and pops! Maybe you’ve heard of the gelato brand Amorino’s. In their shops they give you the choice of several flavors of gelato, shaped into a rose. A smart idea, since with all the consumer choices we have in the 21st century, who doesn’t want the best of all worlds?
When it comes to baby carriers, the hot best-of-both-worlds invention is what’s called the hybrid carrier. The hybrid carrier is a cross of a baby wrap and a structured carrier. They combine the flexibility and intimacy of the former with the support of the latter. Read more about the distinctions among the types of baby carriers in my guide, and continue on this page for my line-up of the best hybrid carriers you can get today.
1. Moby Fit Hybrid Carrier
- Classic, popular hybrid
- Made of 100 percent cotton
It’s hard to go wrong with a Moby. I’m a great fan of their wraps, and the Moby Fit Hybrid has many of the popular features of the wraps. These are made from 100 percent cotton and offer both front and outward carrying positions. They can be used from newborn to toddler, and they’re easy to slip on and adjust. Parents find the Fit Hybrid very supportive and comfortable, once it is correctly adjusted.
2. Boppy ComfyFit Hybrid Carrier
- Polyester-spandex blend makes for a stretchier carrier
- Very breathable
While some parents love the 100-percent-cotton manufacture of the Moby Fit, others prefer something a trifle more breathable or stretchy. If you’re in the second camp, then consider the Boppy ComfyFit. This carrier goes for about the same price as the Moby Fit and is made of a polyester-spandex blend instead of cotton. You get front and outward positions, and parents overwhelmingly love it for the quality, comfort, and support.
3. Boppy ComfyChic Hybrid Carrier
- Very chic hybrid carrier
- Adjustable straps
- Vegan leather details
If you’re in the market for a more expensive item, the ComfyChic Hybrid offers a few advantages over the ComfyFit model. The most notable one is, as the name implies, how chic it is! This one will woo you fashionistas out there by the vegan leather detail of the mesh head support. You get, in addition to the positions of the ComfyFit, a hip carry position. Lastly, this one has adjustable straps, which you plus-sized ladies will appreciate. A great luxury option!
