Many parents and carers love to use buckle carriers to carry their little ones, especially as they grow. Our brands are all easy to use, long lasting and stylish!

Comfortable carriers can help to build a happy brain and help a family to connect.

Buckle carriers are easy to use and convenient.

They come with clip-on waistbands and shoulder straps that fit around your body, to keep your little one close and safe. The best baby carriers are designed to be respectful to baby and parent’s anatomy. They should be comfortable for long periods of time and not cause back pain.

We stock a broad range of ergonomic and comfortable brands to cater for every need. Many can be used from birth. All will offer back carry options. Some can be used for facing out and all will last into toddlerhood. Read more about the different ways buckle carriers can be used here. If you are local, come and see us for some personal support and to try before you buy!

Our most beloved options for newborns are the Integra Baby Carrier, the Mamaruga ZenSling and the Beco Baby Carrier. Click on their photos for more information on how to use them and to choose your favourite colours and patterns. Don’t forget we offer fast, free shipping in the UK.

The Integra Baby Carrier is one of the lightest buckle carriers around; very simple, with some gorgeous prints and the Solar range for warm weather!

The ZenSling combines the cuddle of a wraparound sling with the convenience of a clip on carrier, and is very adjustable in size. People love the spreadable straps!

The Beco Gemini, Beco 8 and Beco Cool ranges are fantastic for parents who want the minimum of fuss but a high level of sturdy support.

The Sleepy Nico carrier is a bit of a Sheffield legend; we have more Sleepy Nico carriers here than anywhere else in the UK. Parents come to the Sling Library to try things out and fall in love with their corduroy softness, comfort and absolute simplicity. We love them for babies just beginning to wake up to the world around them but still love a cuddle (12 weeks upwards).

The Boba X carriers have extra zip-on adapters so the panel will grow wide, helping to support the longest of legs. This carrier fits the greatest range of ages.

We also stock some excellent but less well known carriers, such as the Izmi Baby Carrier (great for those who want minimal) and wrap conversion Fidella Fusion carriers (superbly adjustable). We also stock the TwinGo carrier, a very clever option that allows one adult to carry two children together or splits into two separate carriers, one for each adult!

Toddler and Preschool Carriers

We know that toddlers and older children enjoy being carried too. Little legs can get tired, and don’t worry, it won’t spoil them to give them a helping hand when they need it.

We have a range of carriers specifically for older children, as well as a range of softer panel carriers with long wraparound straps and waistbands (meh dais).

We stock the Integra, Beco, Isara, Izmi, Sleepy Nico and Tula carriers in toddler size. The Integra and Izmi are the most compact and lightweight, the Isara and Sleepy Nico offer gentle supportive padding and softness, with the Beco and Tula ranges being the sturdiest.

Toddler Carriers (18months to 3-4 years)

Older children, or those with special needs, and those who carry them, often appreciate the extra support and freedom a large carrier can give. Many toddler carriers will carry into the preschool years (age 4) and we also stock the lightweight Integra (size 3) and the EasyFeel Preschool sizes. The EasyFeel is the strongest carrier for children over age 5.

Preschool Carriers (3-5years and beyond)

Meh Dais and Half Buckles blend the flexibility and versatility of woven wraps with the speed and simplicity of structured carriers. They have the same type of panel with a waistband. The straps are long and wrap around, allowing them to fit a wide range of adult sizes without needing to make adjustments. They’re very comfortable!
