One, final word on cost. As you begin your search for the right carrier for your family, you may face some sticker shock. Yes, some of these can get very pricey. I had a difficult time with that at first. It was hard for me to understand why a mama would drop $300+ on a "piece of fabric". As I got more into the community, it became much clearer why these are pricer than what we would normally think to pay.
These are quality products and created to last. They are designed to be comfortable for the wearer and the wearee.
Many of these wraps are hand woven or limited edition.
These keep their resale value.
now, with that said, spending lots of money isn't a requirement to babywear. It is very possible to do on a budget. While I personally haven't spent several hundreds of dollars on a wrap, I know several people who have. Do what works for your family and budget.
Ultimately, think of it like people who collect purses or coins or designer items. At its roots, many mamas really just like having these wraps as well, many self proclaiming that they "collect" them in a similar manner.
Cost should never keep you from wearing. There are many affordable options available so that you can enjoy having your baby close to you.
