What’s in the libary? – Buckle Carriers

What’s in the libary? – Buckle Carriers

So, what types of carrier are available to try in the library? I have split the types of carrier into separate blog posts and first up is buckles! As you’ll see, there are differences in waistband, strap types, panel size and adjustability. A sling libary can help you find the right one for your needs (a bit like trying on lots of different jeans!). Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have more questions about the suitability of any carrier.
