Integra is a brand created by one mum who understood the importance of being able to carry your baby with ease. It’s an experienced mum who used her ideas to create quality carriers for babies up to toddlers.

Integra Baby Carriers Style and Design.
When it comes to the style and design of the carriers is the same. The age suitability and size are the only known differences. From birth, your newborn is introduced to the Integra Size One carrier.
Your little one can use this for up to 2 years with adjustable straps included. The straps are made to accommodate any parent. There are short and normal straps
Short straps for parents who are a bit slim and normal straps for others Which makes ideal for many. Different from other carriers the Integra has slimmer pads and is made with elastic loops.
The fabrics are a bit slimmer and the creator took inspiration from Mei Dai Carriers, which are ancient.
It does look similar to the carriers Africans have (reminds me of my childhood). Quite versatile and durable. Made with soft stylish buckles to keep you and your baby comfortable.
No need for that many straps. Ergonomic wearing which means it’s smooth and comfortable for all. You also have a hood to protect your baby from the sun.
Integra baby carrier is lightweight and very compact. You can store it almost anywhere. Integrated with hip support for help with hip development.
Size 2 is for your 18 months year-old baby up to 3 years. The size different dimensions are like the Size 3. Size 3 comes with straps for you to adjust for smaller children
Suitable from 3 to 5 year years that’s around 24kg.
Integra Baby Carriers Positions and Colours.
This baby carrier only has two positions. You have front carrying and back carrying. The front carrying has crossed straps and the latter opposite.
For the inward front carrying it’s for newborns up to 1 year. An outward carrying is mostly from 5 months. Around 12 months your baby can use the back carrying option.
In this stage, they can fully support themselves. The baby carriers are available in soo many colours. It has one, two, three, etc pattern colours.
Almost all colours which make it suitable for all. You can visit the integra web page to see all the available colours.
- The straps are not padded like the other carriers.
- It does not offer the best cleaning option according to some.
- The fabrics are also less padded so it’s not the best carrier for winter.
- Only has two positions. Front and back.
- It’s made from less stylish and quality fabrics compared to some baby carriers.
- It has three separate sizes.
- It takes a bit of practice to wear it by yourself.
Integra Baby Carrier vs Ergobaby Omni 360
These carriers are from different brands and have many differences but are loved by many parents. I will do a short comparison between these two.
How well will the Integra baby carrier do against this top-quality carrier? Well, let’s find out. First, the similarities these baby carriers share are:
- Both are suitable from birth up to toddlerhood.
- Both have forward and back faces.
- Adjustable and durable straps.
- Multiple colours.
- A breastfeeding option is available.
- Hood for protection from weather conditions.
- Hip support.
- Crossed straps.
Looking at the Ergobaby Omni 360 you have more padded straps, materials and fabrics. It’s made for all seasons with ventilation included
It has 4 positions included the ones mentioned above. It has better fabrics and has been approved by experts to offer the best hip protection for your child.
It also comes with a pouch and a waist strap to help with your back. Moving on to the Integra carrier you have a cheaper price, short straps, has more colour options, is more lightweight and compact and lastly it’s suitable for up to 5 years.
Of course, the Omni 360 is better, but with the high price, some parents might go for the Integra carrier.
It still has good features for your baby and toddler, besides thousands of parents are buying it.
The Integra baby carrier is one of those carriers that are even suitable for your 5-year-old, which makes it quite valuable for many.
It uses ancient style and less padded fabrics but the carrier is still stylish, durable and safe. Loved by many. It’s made for your everyday lifestyle and will suit many.
The baby carrier is also much cheaper than many. Saves you money to buy other things.
What are your thoughts on this type of carrier? Would you go for the Integra Carrier?
