In different cultures and periods, numerous ways of transporting children have been employed. Baby carriages (also known as prams in British English), infant car seats, portable bassinets (carrycots), strollers (pushchairs), slings, backpacks, baskets, and bicycle carriers are all examples of these techniques.

During the second part of the 1900s, the huge, heavy prams (short for perambulator) that had grown popular during the Victorian era were replaced by lighter versions.

Infant carrying most likely developed early in human development, since the introduction of bipedalism would have needed a method of carrying newborns who could no longer cling to their mothers or simply sit on top of their mothers’ backs. On-the-body carriers come in a variety of shapes and sizes, including baby slings, backpack carriers, and soft front or hip carriers, with different materials, stiffness, ornamentation, support, and kid confinement.


Infants who are unable to sit or keep their heads up are often carried in slings, soft front carriers, and “baby carriages.” For older children, frame backpack carriers (a modified frame backpack), hip carriers, slings, mei tais, and a number of other soft carriers are utilized.

Images of children being held in slings may be seen in Egyptian artwork dating back to the Pharaohs’ time, as well as in many indigenous cultures. A painting by Giotto, created about 1306 AD, portrays Mary carrying Jesus in a sling and is one of the oldest European artworks depicting infant wearing. In medieval Europe, baby carrying in a sling was common, although it was mostly associated with marginalized populations such as beggars and gypsies.

A cradleboard is a Native American baby carrier that keeps newborns safe and secure while also giving moms the flexibility to work and travel. From the shoulder or the head, the cradleboards were linked to the mother’s back straps. Cradleboards might be mounted on a saddle or travois for travel. According to ethnographic tradition, cradleboarding newborn infants until they were ready to walk was standard practice, while many mothers continued to swaddle their children long past the first birthday. A newborn can feel comfortable and secure when bound and wrapped on a cradleboard.

Cushioning and diapers were made from soft materials like lichens, moss, and shredded bark. Cradleboards were padded with soft, absorbent materials and carved from flat pieces of wood or braided from flexible twigs like willow and hazel. Most cradleboards have a flat surface with the kid securely wrapped around it. Its head is generally the only thing it can move.

With the introduction of the structured soft pack in the mid-1960s, on-the-body infant carrying became popular in Western countries in the 1960s. Around the same period, the frame backpack became a common method of transport for older infants and toddlers. The wrap was revived in Germany in the early 1970s. Rayner and Fonda Garner created the two-ringed sling in 1981, and Dr. William Sears popularized it in 1985. The contemporary pouch carrier was invented in Hawaii in the early 1990s.

While the Chinese mei tai has been around in some form or another for generations, it wasn’t until it was updated with padding and other changes that it became popular in the west. It first became well-known and popular in mid-2003.

Many civilizations have utilized portable cradles to transport newborn infants, such as cradleboards, baskets, and bassinets.
