Suck pads can be both practical and beautiful. Available in a plethora of patterns and styles, these can change the look of a soft-structured carrier or meh dai while protecting the carrier from little ones that like to chew on the straps. Etsy is full of great options, and many carrier companies make their own version too.

Another great accessory for little ones that are teething or love to chew are chew necklaces or carrier  accessories. These can either be attached to the carrier or worn by the babywearer to give the wearee something to keep them (and their mouths) busy.

On a practical note, bags you can use while babywearing are always awesome. Cross-body bags are popular among babywearers. Hip packs also work well with lots of carriers. Some carrier companies also make special pouches designed to fit on the carrier straps – like the Onya Hipster Pouch.  If you like to back carrier, a mirror that attaches to your carrier is a fun little accessory. These can let you peek at your little one while you’re out and about.

As we roll into winter, babywearing coats and fleece covers are increasingly popular – and a great way to keep warm if you do a lot of outside wearing. And if you find that your little one’s pants tend to ride up while being worn, knee high socks or baby leg warmers, like Babylegs, are a good way to keep little legs covered during the colder months.

If you’re looking for something to memorialize your time babywearing, a gift certificate for babywearing photos or an art portrait made from your favorite babywearing picture make for beautiful mementos.

Artists on Etsy also offer many options for babywearing insprired jewelry and babywearing ornaments – which are both great keepsakes whether you’re currently wearing or not. You can also find lots of wrap scrap accessories online – these can be made from your favorite woven wrap (or just another pattern you like!) and are a great for everyday use.
