Plus Size Baby Carrier

Below you'll see our top 11 baby carriers for plus size moms listed in alphabetical order. 

1. Baby K’tan

Plus Size Information
The Baby K’tan is sized to fit the wearer and we have sizes ranging all the way up to XL (Women’s size 18-22)

Plus Size Babywearing Reviews
• Baby K'tan is awesome! I'm size 24 fits great! Daughter loves it very comfortable not back-breaking like some
• Doesn't cut in or squeeze me where I don't want it too. The cotton is a wonderful breathable material for longer wears, and Daddy can use the same size. Plus – it's only an XL.
• I really love my Baby K'tan. It's soft and flexible, very easy to put on and get baby into and easy to adjust with a baby in it if you need to. I am carrying my one month old regularly but I have put my 18 lb 7-month-old nephew in it as well as my 40 lb 4-year-old daughter. It's worked for everyone!

2. Boba Wrap

Plus Size Information
The Boba carrier comes only in one size. It is designed to fit most parents between 5 and 6’3 feet tall.

Plus Size Babywearing Reviews
• I LOVE LOVE my Boba!!! I love that it's stretchy and breaths, unlike the moby.
• Boba Organic is comfortable. It has long straps to accommodate larger body sizes without extenders. It's nice to be able to front or back carry comfortably.
• I loved our Boba, mostly because it was the only one I could find that both fit AND was slightly stretchy. I like the t-shirt like material and that it fit dad, too. I'm 5'9″ and 450lbs, daddy is 6'4″ and 450lbs, and it was plenty big and comfy.

3. Didymos 

Plus Size Information
Sizing goes up to XXXL.  

Plus Size Babywearing Reviews
• I don't leave home without my Didymos.
• Didymos come in all ranges of greatness. Lots of love for a great range of options in terms of weave and colors.
• Didymos, the first wrap brand. Pretty much anyone can find a Didy to love as they come in all varieties. No one thing can describe all Didys; there are just two variables! I own several Didymos and have owned several that have since found new homes.

4. Ergobaby

Plus Size Information
Ergobaby carriers fit parents of most sizes!

Plus Size Babywearing Reviews
• Ergo is easy to use and the weight limits are high.
• I love the Ergo because my baby calms instantly when I wear him in it and I love that I can wear it front or back depending on the need. It's so comfy, too, and doesn't squish my large breasts!
• Ergo is perfect for plus-sized mamas and actually feels stable and supportive. It's just a few clicks before you're ready to go and is very user-friendly.

5. Infantino Carrier

Plus Size Information
Infantino is a popular option because they are affordable plus size baby carriers. The straps can be adjusted to allow for different size parents with the buckle carrier pictured below.

Plus Size Babywearing Reviews
• I love our Infantino because it has really grown with our baby, plus my husband and I can both wear it. We take our baby on errands, hiking, chores around the house, everywhere in it!
• We love our Infantino it keeps baby close, fits me well, and versatile enough dad can wear her too!
• I love our Infantino! I'm a size 18 and have plenty of room left in the straps. My little man loves this carrier too. The only complaint is I wish the shoulder straps were wider.

6. Mei Tai Baby

Plus Size Information
The optional snap tab extender is available for those who would like incremental adjustability.

Plus Size Babywearing Reviews
• Love my Mei Tei. But as a plus sized mommy with large breasts, I have a tough time double wrapping the straps like they were designed to.
• I loved my Mei Tai for my babies. It was a great wrap because I'm a big girl and hubby is not so big but it is easy for both of us to use and very secure for baby to be in.
• Mei Tei is simple and easy to use and adjust. Not very comfortable for heavier babies. Easy to nurse in. Not having padded straps makes for long-wearing uncomfortable.

7. Moby Wrap

Plus Size Information
The Moby Wrap is 5.5 meters long and will fit larger parents. When wrapping, you would simply tie a knot at your back. For our customers who prefer extra length, an extra-long Moby Wrap (6 meters) can be purchased.

Plus Size Babywearing Reviews
• We loved the Moby when our son was younger! It had a nice stretch for maximum comfort but was also secure. It's a great alternative to carrying a bucket seat everywhere!
• Moby Wrap takes the pressure off and evenly distributes baby's weight on your body. It has many positions.
• Loved my Moby Wrap when my son was a sleepy newborn. I was worried that it wouldn't fit at first (I am a size ~26), but it fit with some extra fabric even!

8. Tula Baby Carriers

Plus Size Information

Plus Size Babywearing Reviews
 I'm a size 22/24 and LOVE my Tula. I even have extra room with the straps.
• Tula is the most comfortable carrier I own.
• I own many carriers but my Tula is my go-to!

Kimberly it can get a little warm but not as sweaty as you'd imagine.

I was so excited to buy an Ergo with the waist extender only to discover that they've stopped making them. Which for this plus sized mama (24) means I've gotta take my business elsewhere.

I think the k'tan or the moby would work best for me-- they seem flexible.

I’m surprised not to see Kinderpack carriers on this list. They are amazing buckle carriers that have plus size straps with more cushioning. They’ve been an integral part of my babywearing years.
