What's new? Not baby carriers like this one. They've been around.
If a parent of teenagers tries to tell you, "You have it so easy now, with these baby carriers & such. We didn't have stuff like that when my kids were young." Don't believe them.
Me & Moira 2009
Me cozy & carried by my Momma back in 1980.
My mom made this one. She did an amazing job with all the buckles & padding & stuff. It is way more complex than the ones I make now. The lining fabric is tiny strawberry print. So cute. The main fabric is a burgundy corduroy.
I think the brand name type that was similar to this styling was called the Snugli.

Yep. Way back then. They had baby carriers. And, this one looks nearly identical to the style I use & make now--the Mei Tai Carrier.
