Babywearing is quickly assimilated to Mommy. So is parenthood! However, the father has just as much to do. Baby carriers, baby wraps and babywearing clothes are often seen as childcare products and can quickly scare away dads. Fortunately, there are products for you, dear dads!
Why can/should dad carry the baby?
It's not just for women (yes, really, force yourself). Babywearing has many benefits for baby but also for the parent-child relationship.
- Better apprehension and understanding of baby's needs
- Encouragement of the father-child attachment bond
- Increased confidence and anchoring of the father's role
So what should you choose as a man to carry your child?
Baby carriers for men
What you, as a father, should be looking for is ease of use and comfort during walks :) (or not, eh)
There are many baby carriers, the most important thing is that it has to be ergonomic, that it respects baby's physiology. They are practical and allow you to wear your baby from birth (not all of them!) up to more than 20 kg.
There are no baby carriers dedicated to men, but they are all mixed (well, maybe the fuchsia pink ones don't appeal to you too much). They just need to be adapted to stronger body types with adjustable straps.
At Love Radius, we design UNISEXES and sober products. You don't have to show off your parenthood to everyone :)
Our two soft structured baby carriers can be used from birth thanks to the extension kit (booster seat and head support) up to 20 kg. They are made of Oeko-tex100 cotton and have adjustable, ultra-padded straps that adapt to any morphology for maximum comfort.
Three types of carrying are possible: front, back or side carry!
Easy to adjust, both are available in 3 sober colours that blend in with everything.

Baby wraps for dads
The classic wraps
Once again, no wraps dedicated to men. They can be used by both parents, but you need to have a good length to make the knots if you have a large body. (over 4.60m to be comfortable)
At Love Radius, there are two wraps adapted to men for physiological babywearing. They are made of a stretchy star-shaped fabric that allows you to tie the knot before putting baby in: practical and reassuring, isn't it? You can put baby in and out of the wrap without untying the knot :)
Both are made of oeko-tex100 cotton, guaranteed free of harmful substances! With unisex colours, you're bound to find one you like.

Yes, tying the knot can be scary. For that, there are slings, where thanks to rings, you don't have to tie a knot :)
The Little Wrap Without A Knot is perfect in this sense. In 45 seconds, you can go anywhere with your baby. With its light and two-coloured fabric, it is suitable for summer and can be adjusted according to your mood.

Babywearing clothes for men
If you are determined to carry baby and even brave the cold by his side, you will need clothes that are suitable for the baby carrier/sling + baby + you.
Most babywearing jackets and coats are for mums only. At Love Radius, we've thought of you, Dad, with a unisex sweatshirt that can be worn even when going out for a drink or jogging without your child.
Without an insert, it expands with zips on the side to make room for the child and returns to normal for your body type alone. Ultra practical, for all seasons, you can even put other jackets over it as it is a sweater.
|EXISTS IN GREY||EXISTS IN BLACK|
Products adapted to you, gentlemen, exist (they are suitable for everyone), it would be a shame to deprive yourself of the experience of babywearing!
