Baby Wearing

 African Baby Carrier I am a huge fan of the African Baby Carrier. Babies are happiest closest to their caregivers and this product leaves your hands free to go about your business and multitask as mothers do. It is easy-to-use, comfortable, compact enough to pack in and provides strong support for baby (up to 3-years old).
