Nowadays, parenting isn't a reason to just "stay at home."
Thanks to technological conveniences and a different outlook by society, parents are totally capable of getting out into the world with their kids, rather than being trapped at home.
With that in mind, many parents are looking for solutions for the easiest and most convenient way to keep their kid in tow as they travel around.
It’s a good time to be a parent in that regard because there are plenty of options to help life a little easier. It’s almost as if companies just now realized that parents would like to be able to move with their kids without lugging around bulky equipment.
So we've got car seats.
These are getting smaller and more versatile, allowing parents to carry them around without having to swap them out or break their backs in the process. They’re also safer, which is obviously a huge plus should the unspeakable happen.
We've also got strollers that are getting better and better.
In fact, sometimes the stroller and the car seat are one and the same. As you can see here, those big monolithic things are gone. The new ones are skinny and light, allowing parents to move them with ease.
Finally, the newest innovation (at least to catch on in the States), is the baby carrier.
Also known as a baby Bjorn, these things are everywhere and quite literally make carrying your kid as easy as wearing a backpack.
But as one mom showed, babywearing can cause some truly terrible health problems for the parent, as the pics on the next page will show you.
